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 grew and it is now 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 the Wella London Academy as well as regular in-house training nights.

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.

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.

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.

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 whilst training at Bath College. I really enjoy my career with my exsisting clients and always welcome new clients to my expanding clientele.



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’ve been working at the salon for 5 years. Within that time I’ve started to build a loyal clientele along with some success in Wella competitions. I enjoy doing classic and creative work bespoke to each client. I regularly attend Wella London Studios to keep current with the latest hair trends and always enjoy bringing back new techniques for my clients new cut or colour.

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.



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.



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.
