The Hair and Beauty Bar, formerly Essensuals, has become independent after years of providing top notch service on Guildford’s North Street.

The salon boasts a talented 15-strong team of technicians, stylists and beauty therapists  trained to the highest level and is headed up by salon owner, Gemma Raif.

Gemma comments; ‘We’re bucking the high street trend and are proud to now be independent after serving clients in Guildford and the surrounding areas for over two decades.

‘We know what our clients want; an experience supported by best in class service.  We offer our clients the chance to escape and they leave with fabulous hair, feeling amazing.’

The Hair and Beauty Bar welcomes both loyal clients and new. The salon has recently added Zen hair extensions and semi-permanent makeup to its treatment list and menu of refreshments is offered to anyone that visits.
