About Village Hair Shop
The Village Hair Shop at East Hoathly is a friendly salon run by Michele Wright and Lisa Munn, who, with their team of stylists, offer everything in hairdressing, from trims to colour, and perms.
The two have run the salon for 23 years and have known each other much longer than that having met at Duchesses and Dukes salon, which used to be near Ray’s Barbers at the top of Uckfield High Street.
Having always been Uckfield girls Michele still lives in the town while Lisa now lives in East Hoathly.
They work with three more stylists, Laura, who was trained by them and works on Saturdays, Julie, who is nearly full-time, and Amber, who also trained at the salon and specialises in hair up for weddings, and proms.
Paige is the salon junior. She helps all the stylists.
Village Hair Shop is bright, airy, and contemporary having just been refurbished.
Another of its attractions is its central site in East Hoathly near a coffee shop, pub, village shop and Post Office.
Michele said: “Our customers often meet up with their friends afterwards for coffee and lunch at Muffins, or at the King’s Head pub. We are a close community of businesses and work together helping each other.”
Customers quickly get to know all the hairdressers and each other and enjoy their chats, mulling over events of the day, family crises, and plans.
Relaxing and fun
“We counsel them and they counsel us,” said Lisa. “We like to think people can come in here and immediately be comfortable without any judgement, just being pampered and enjoying the company in a relaxing and fun atmosphere.”
Protection from Covid-19 is top priority and time is created between appointments for stations to be cleaned ready for the next customer.
There are hand sanitisers and disposable gowns for customers, disposable aprons and visors for the hairdressers, screen guards between stations, and special equipment to sanitise customers’ phones, and salon equipment.
There is also a UV ozone lamp which works after closure each day to sanitise the shop.
If you would like to book an appointment please call 01825 841338.
