Fox Hair Design - Salons in Barwell and Hinckley

Fox Hair Design salons in Barwell and Hinckley reopened on Sunday 5th July. We have worked tirelessly to put measures in place to make Fox Hair Covid-19 Secure. Please take a moment to read through this article to understand what a next visit to your hairdresser will be like.

Safety within the salon is paramount. We will follow all guidance issued by HM Government and Public Health England specific to the hairdressing industry. We may adopt policies and working practises, where appropriate, that go above and beyond published guidance. The measures set out below will change in line with updates issued by HM Government.

  • TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT – Due to track and trace guideline we are unable to accept walk in appointments. Please call us on 01455 245245 to book your appointment or use our online booking system HERE.
  • COLOUR SERVICES – If we’ve not seen your for a while, or if you are new to the salon, we will need to see you for a colour consultation and allergy test. Colour consultations and allergy tests are by pre booked appointment only.
