#WeAreBrilliantBrighton: Simon Webster Hair
Meet Simon & Sophie Webster of award winning Brighton salon Simon Webster Hair
With the majority of our 517 Brilliant Brighton businesses able to re-open again from Monday (12th April), we are shining a spotlight on the people behind the BID businesses who make our city centre such a wonderful place to be!
Today, we’re chatting to Sophie Webster of award-winning independent salon Simon Webster Hair to hear more about the salon, their love for hairdressing and reopening offers.
Hi Sophie, when did Simon Webster Hair open?
Tell us a little about what you offer…
We’re a family-run independent hair salon with a community focus and a session-styling pedigree. Our ethos is to combine the warm welcome of a local salon with the expertise of a high-end brand and that approach has won us several awards for innovation and teamwork. We’re creative, sustainable and gender-free. And we are 100% Brighton.
What do you enjoy most about what you do?
The sociability of hairdressing is what makes it such a great profession. We can get distracted by the creative nature of the job, but the essence of it is really about sharing and nurturing; creating an environment of wellbeing and social exchange. And we all need that in bucketloads right now.
What do you love most about Brighton?
SWH Team is made up of true Brightonians like Simon, and those who were drawn here for the energy of the city. Brighton never stands still – it’s transient, growing and dynamic. And the footprints of the past are still there to influence and admire in the Brighton of today through its rich and diverse architecture, music scene, independent traders and community. It’s a melting pot of talent and adventure. And who doesn’t love living near the beach?
So beautifully put! Finally, do you have any reopening offers?
Of course we’re continuing our established #WeLoveNHS discount, as well as our student and loyalty offers. Plus this time we’re giving all our Colourstart Clients a complimentary bond-strengthening service when they come for their first colour service so we can get their hair back to optimum condition ready for the summer ahead.
