We are a very busy salon based in the beautiful village of Islip, covering roughly a ten mile radius, with clients coming from Wellingborough, Kettering, Rushden and surrounding villages.
We pride ourselves on the fact we offer all hairdressing services to men, women and children.
I think the main success of our salon is due to the very friendly staff who make everyone feel welcome, spending time on full consultations and only using top quality products as in Goldwell, TIGI, and ghd.
Goldwell is a prestigious and unique colouring system. It has many colouring options, that are listed on our services page.
How we differ from other salons is that we go to Goldwell’s training academy in London at least twice a year to be updated with all the new colouring and cutting techniques, seeing all the latest on trend cuts and colours, so we can bring the latest city styles to our clients. Goldwell’s technicians also visit us four times a year for in-salon training. We are your Number One choice for Hairdressers in Islip.
My name is Lisa. I have owned Hair @ Number One since 2006. I decided to take on the challenge of owning my own salon after 20 years of hairdressing. I was fast approaching 40 and was ready for a new chapter.
After negotiations with the previous owner, with lots of blood, sweat and tears, and agonising over was I doing the right thing or not, with the help of my husband, family and friends Hair@Number One was born.
Sixteen years on, we have steadily grown, employing seven staff, extending upstairs and converting a barn out the back. I feel very fortunate to be able to work and live within the village of Islip. We do lots of fundraising, like hair shows for crazy hats, and we always support Macmillan coffee mornings, local schools and various events. I now work three days a week, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, leaving Holly, my manager, to look after things while I’m away.
I feel very fortunate now to have such a great bunch of girls who all bring their own flair, personality and creativity to the salon, which means we have a unique client/stylist rapport. I try to keep on trend and focused, moving forward and focusing on new ideas, keeping an upbeat vibe in the salon. I’m always happy to give advice and answer any hair related questions you may have.

What sets us aside is our great atmosphere in the salon, it’s fun yet still being professional, its so important that staff are happy and fulfilled, so we regularly go out together and away for weekends for team bonding and socialising, so we can take back a fun vibe and happy atmosphere to the salon. We have become the Number One Hairdressers in Islip. Here’s what a few of our clients have to say about us and the experience at our salon:
