Our League of Extraordinary Hair Designers

Giving you a fabulous salon experience

We are multi-award winners, individually and as a team. You’ll find some of the latest ones on this page. We’re proud to say that as well as for technical excellence, the awards are also for client care and the luxurious calm ambience of the salon.

We listen, consult – using our 3C’s approach, advise and communicate with you at every stage of your visit. That means you can relax, because you are in safe, experienced hands with us.

As well as being known nationally and internationally for our precision cutting, we are specialists in Balayage and Ombre, and have gained a reputation for being experts in curly hair cut and colour.

Our training ensures you get the best…

All our Manchester hair stylists are Sassoon trained. Sassoon training is globally recognised throughout our industry as the ultimate in hairdressing precision cutting education. Vidal Sassoon believed that if the cut was technically perfect there would be no need to use anything to hold it in place; hair would fall naturally back into the correct shape. As a team we fully endorse and apply these Sassoon principles in our Manchester salon.

Melissa herself trained with Sassoon in Manchester and London, starting as an Apprentice before working towards gaining Distinctions in both her Classic and Creative tests – a rare feat in the hairdressing world’s toughest exam.

“We are all immensely proud to say that we have the same technically excellent precision cutting technique here at Melissa Timperley Salons,” says Melissa, “and I’m sure that if he were still with us, Vidal Sassoon himself would say that we were continuing to be true to his ethos, but with a modern Manchester twist.”

Due to existing client demand, Melissa is not taking on any new clients at the moment. However we have some fantastic, highly skilled and experienced stylists to look after you if you are new to us. Do check out the profiles of our Senior Stylists Sara, Lauren and Joe; or Salon Stylists Rebecca, Helen, Lara, Izzy or Victoria.
