At Anthony John Salons in Lichfield, our philosophy is to create bespoke hair. Every client is different, and every client is important to us. We look at face shape, skin tone and talk about your lifestyle to ensure you get the perfect hair cut, hair colour and style for you. We don't believe that two heads of hair should be the same.

Through consultation and the techniques we put into practice, using our range of leading products from Kérastase & L’Oréal Professional, we deliver hair that is entirely individual to you and your needs while providing a haven of luxury and relaxation for our clients.

We have lots of five star salon reviews from delighted guests. You can read some of our reviews to find out why we are the number one hairdressing salon in Staffordshire for cutting, styling and hair colour.

We certainly do! We love welcoming new clients into our salon. If you've never visited our salon before, our New Client Offer entitles you to 20% off your first hair appointment. Find out more here.

We are ourselves going to continue to wear our face masks until April. We do ask, if you don't mind, if you can do the same. However if you are not comfortable with this then it is not something that we can enforce. By wearing masks through March I feel we will see truly what the numbers are doing in terms of infection rates and fingers crossed that by April 1st everything will look EVEN better.

If things go to plan then all of the staff (if they want to) will stop wearing masks and you can do the same. However, if you are wearing on, then so will we. We do also ask that you do the same, there may be times that staff feel more vulnerable i.e. they are pregnant, they are close family members are having treatment etc - so they decide that it is best to wear a mask at that time. We ask that you are at all times kind to our team if that is their choice just as we are always kind to you. I know you will be.

This will be returning at some point through April. This much loved, shared space some of you will not have used before. It is our space on the mezzanine floor where clients relax whilst their colour is developing, away from the rest of the salon. There is another coffee machine and fridge on this level all there to help you get away from the world, enjoy a coffee or hot chocolate and either read, work, or simply daydream. There will be some changes in this space, we are currently busy sourcing and purchasing different style seating to make it as relaxing as possible. The final screens will be removed from the salon in between the backwash. The waiting area at reception will also reopen.

One thing that won't be changing will be our stringent testing if any of the team is feeling un well with symptoms of Covid. We will be purchasing many lateral flow tests and insisting that if anybody shows signs that they may have the virus that they test, in turn of course they would then finish their shift immediately.

We do ask that you do the same and remain very cautious about how you feel when coming into the salon to protect the team and all the other clients. We will also continue to have sanitiser on every section, on reception and around the salon. On top of this our disposable, one use, bio degradable towels will continue and also every gown will be laundered after every use. Of course all of this takes investment from the business, but it's all things that will now remain in place continuously.

With all of the above in mind, it means that we will be removing our small covid charge from April 1st. As you know this charge, originally £4 per client and halved to £2 around 12 months ago, was put in place to simply allow the business to still be viable. There was huge investment made initially to make sure we were covid secure, but the main hit was the fact that to reduce the flow of people meant that our capacity reduced by 20-30%, in turn it meant that revenue took a 20-30% hit.

As you can imagine, the £2 per client hasn't come close to covering this - but ensured we remained viable. We have tried to keep this at the absolute minimum throughout the two years (my dentist charges £25 covid charge per patient) and I have also wanted it to be transparent so that you know what the charge was for rather than hiding it in price increases. I want to say a huge thank you to you all for not even questioning it, it really has helped us through what could have been a very tricky time in the business. If we should have to put some of our covid restrictions back in place in the future then we may have to re introduce this charge, but lets all hope that we never have to do that.

Heart Of The Country Shopping Village is an old farm on the border of south Staffordshire and the Midlands. 40 years ago, the family decided to diversify the farm and opened the first shop on the site called "the three french hens." From there, more and more local businesses approached them to have their home there and gradually "heart of the country shopping village" was born.

Today, Heart Of The Country Shopping Village boasts 20 units and is still growing. With three restaurants, dog groomers, jewellers, art gallery, clothes boutiques and more - it's a great day out in a luxury, yet relaxed atmosphere. Our unit is situated in the middle of the village, we have a 2000sq foot barn conversion that has now been our home for 13 years. We simply can't think of anywhere better to have our hair destination.
