Nick Brain Hairdressing is one of Baths’ longest established Salons, starting out in the City back in the early 1980’s. Nick began working on his own servicing a few local clients in Bath. 

As the demand for Nick’s talents increased, the Salon and the Team needed to expand and the business moved to York Street close to the Abbey in 1998.

With further awards and accolades to come, the company went from strength to strength with further expansion into a second York Street Salon opening in 2005.

The Salon has become synonymous with contemporary styling and attention to detail with our clients enjoying a relaxed yet professional atmosphere in the hands of our experienced stylists and colour technicians.

The Team

We have always been passionate about nurturing home-grown talent and promoting staff development. All our graduate stylists attend courses at both the Wella London Academy and the Tigi Academy as well as regular in-house training nights.

Senior stylists also keep up to date with refresher courses held by these Academies.

We have a blend of young enthusiastic stylists combined with those with many years experience within the industry. Hover over the stylist images to learn more about our amazing staff.

Nick Brain | Director

I have been hairdressing in Bath for many years and in that time I have built up a loyal team of stylists around me within the two salons. My clientele consists of professional sportsmen, TV personalities, local business men and women and families. I love working with all hair types creating both classic and modern styles.

Rob | Salon Manager

Having run my own business for over 17 year and with over 36 years in the world of hairdressing, I am enjoying my work more than ever. I work in all aspects of hairdressing from cuts, restyles, all colour work and bridal hair.

Carrie- Anne

Having started as a work experience girl, Nick offered me a job straight away. From that moment on I haven’t looked back. I love my job and love the fact I colour and cut, this means I get to see my clients from start to finish, giving them what I consider to be an amazing service.


My name is Dani Leroy. I have held the position of senior stylist and head technician at Nick Brain Hairdressing for over twenty years. Specialist services include wedding hair and hair extensions.


Samantha has over 15 years experience in hairdressing. She specialises in both colour and cutting and has a passion for completely transforming her clients' look.


I have been working at Nick Brain Hair for 25 years now as a senior colour technician. I started my career as a Saturday girl, trained at Bath College and did my NVQ Level 3 , studied a colour masters at Wella London Studios. I really enjoy my career with my exsisting clients and always welcome new clients to my expanding clientele.


I started working at Nick Brain in 2001 aged 14 as a Saturday girl. I left school at 16 and started my hairdressing apprenticeship. In 2005 I qualified as a self-employed hairdresser and specialised in colour and cutting. I am very flexible and can offer early morning appointments or even evenings appointments, any day Monday to Saturday.


Having been in the business for over 16 years. I still feel a thrill every time a client walks through the door. I love the challenge of giving the clients the results they are after, while pushing myself to get better every day.


20 years on from picking up my first pair of scissors I still get a buzz from colouring and cutting hair. Its great to have such a diverse and creative team at Nicks to bounce of.


With over 20 years in the industry most of them with Nick I still love coming to work. I don't colour hair but work along side amazing technicians for that. This allows me to focus on what I love best giving my clients time and energy on a beautiful haircut.



Having trained in the Salon and gained all my qualifications from Bath College, I can't believe where the time has gone; 21 years have flown by. I am now a Senior Colour Technician and during my 21 years I have built up a loyal clientele. I look forward to welcoming new and existing clients.


I joined Nick Brain when I was just 21. I was inspired by those first stylists I worked with who taught me the many cutting and coloring disciplines. This was clearly the career for me and It is now so much more than just a job as I am able to explore my creative passion with clients.


I’ve been working at the salon for 3 years now having grown up within the hairdressing industry. Within that time I’ve had success in the Wella Trendvision and Xposure competitions. I’m now looking to grow my clientele within the salon and look forward to meeting new clients.


Having started at Nick Brain Hairdressing as a Saturday girl I’ve worked my way up to become a graduate stylist/colour technician. I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing, but colour is my passion with myself specialising in balayage and keeping up to date with the latest colour trends.
