About us

Established in 1988 by two friends, Brookes is still owned and run by Ian Reijs and Marc Baker.

Originally conceived to be an alternate to the sterile and clinical feel of other salons, they sought to bring a different element to the salon experience.

Situated in a period 1860’s building that originally served as Bishop’s Stortford’s first high school, Brookes used the space to create an airy and comfortable environment.

Brookes currently employ a team of nine stylists, technicians and junior staff, all striving to bring our clients the highest level of service and hairdressing skills, using only quality products.

We have strong links to Redken and its products, with regular updates and education at Redken HQ in Hammersmith.

The salon mantra carries on into all aspects of hairdressing, including fashion colouring, cutting, party hair, Kera-straight treatments and natural hair extensions.

Please feel free to call in for a consultation at any time.
