Hari’s has been part of London’s hair scene since 1976, and we wanted to give you an illustrative snapshot into the story that we are so proud of.
Our philosophy for nurturing and developing raw talent which we began at our first salon in Sydney Street 45 years ago, took us all the way to the present day, with four salons in South Kensington, King’s Road, Parsons Green and of course Notting Hill salon – our most recent addition which we opened in Summer 2017. Now one of the most celebrated names in hair and beauty,
Hari’s is proud of its heritage and stellar team, many of which have been with us for over 25 years. We would like to thank you, as well as the loyal press, for supporting our creative journey to becoming one of the best styling teams in the capital.
