Loft Hair

LOFT HAIR is a New York-style secluded salon within an industrial shell on the border of Kingsland. The resident stylists are a collection of independent talents with unique skill sets and over a century of time on the tools between them. The open plan space lends itself to a culture that allows individual expression to flow seamlessly into collaboration: a place where cutting edge is redefined.
At LOFT we are more than just beautiful hair.
