The Hairport 1 Story

Hairport 1 opened its doors in February 1987. 32 Years later, Val has built a salon and a team with a difference- a salon that cares for each individual client, ensuring that their experience with us at Hairport 1 is one to remember.

After introducing a range of beauty services to the menu, clients can feel assured all their hair and beauty needs are seen to in the one place, with friendly and professional therapists and styles ready to work their magic.

All of our staff continue to grow their skills each year by completing extra training year round in their fields. We believe that you can never have too much education in the areas you are passionate about and it is invaluable information you will have with you forever. It also ensures our staff to be ahead of the game and up to date with all things skin, hair and beauty, in order to provide our clients with the best service and experience with us at Hairport 1.


Quality and dedication is never an accident it is always a result of high intentions, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skill full execution which represents Hairport1 1 as a highly successful team
