SALT Dalston is more than just a hair salon, it’s a contemporary space with a private roof terrace, situated in East London’s Stamford Works, a former office to a 19th-century paper mill.
The key values at SALT Dalston are clear; they believe in the importance of “continuous education” and developing staff and clients, always with a curious mindset. While the world of fashion plays a part in the hair cutting and colouring services, the atmosphere is never intimidating, more welcoming and always inclusive. All appointments are gender neutral. Staff’s wellness is key, with regular education classes, free yoga classes and open communication.
Appointments at SALT are a real experience; there’s no being rushed out of the door here with an experience that’s tailored and experimental. The environment is laid-back and fun, with clients invited to enjoy a coffee or drink at the bar with a DJ playing vinyl records at the weekend to get the party started.
In terms of the interiors, the vibe is fresh and modern with pops of colour and bold, graphic prints. Located a short walk away from Dalston Kingsland and Dalston Junction stations, it’s right in the heart of one of London’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, which is reflected in the eclectic artwork on the walls. The salon are a proud stockist of Bumble & Bumble, whose products can be seen displayed on shelves across the salon.
