Meet the Team
Meet Our Owner – Barbara
Barbara is the backbone and business mind of this long running and successful salon. Having run a number of businesses throughout her career, Barbara’s flair, passion, enthusiasm and hard work ensures that Chique runs in a manner that we are all proud to be a part of. Barbara now leaves the practical side of the business to her daughter Debbie, and together they work seamlessly to create a great salon experience offering outstanding hair & beauty treatments to their clients.
Meet Our Manager – Debbie
Debbie is the manager here at Chique and has been a professional hair technician for over 35 years. Having started her career at Zeffedees in Southampton; which was an extremely fashionable salon in the heart of the city; Debbie decided to take the plunge and start her own business – “Chique”.
Chique is a family run business, and it is thanks to the close-knit relationships, client trust and renowned reputation that Debbie has worked hard to achieve over the past 30 years, that makes this salon the success it is today.
Our staff are always friendly but professional. Over the years we have continued to invest in training and personal development, to enable us to keep up with changing trends in the market and deliver outstanding customer care. We love having junior members of the staff at Chique, as we not only get to see their progress as they work their way up through the ranks, but they provide a youthful insight into salon life.
In recent times, Debbie has decided to take more of a back seat devoting her time to teaching junior technicians and the management of the salon.
