The Aveda Difference

Refine your blonde with natural Aveda colour from the haircare experts at Graham West.

How can I achieve that elusive perfect blonde?

It’s all about us understanding what you want, studying your skin tone and eye colour, then custom blending. We can use lots of sophisticated techniques from ombre to balayage or babylights. However, we believe what matters most is the first step; listening to you so we can create a style that makes you look and feel fantastic; the best possible version of yourself.


How does Aveda colour differ?

It’s up to 93% naturally derived and essentially damage free, using plant power instead of petrochemicals. We don’t rely on pre-blended tubes but mix natural tones and pigments into a base, customised for you. It means we always create individual colour that can be adjusted over time to keep it fresh and appropriate to the season.


How do I choose from the different techniques?

Your colour needs to work alongside your haircut to add shape and texture. A precision crop would look stunning with solid platinum colour whereas longer flowing tresses might benefit from colour eclipting™ in which multiple shades are woven through a base, giving the illusion of fullness and movement. Our stylists are experienced Aveda colour specialists who can advise you on what will work best. Following our recent refurbishment, we work from a fabulous colour dispensary – a bit like an artist’s palette with all the tubes of pigment we need to hand - so clients can watch as we custom blend their colour.


What’s new this summer?

New Aveda Full Spectrum Demi+ shine treatments are express services that deliver lasting results. Whether you’re glossing your natural colour, refreshing colour or covering grey, they add depth and shine, in just 20 minutes.


What signifies your salon experience?

We offer men and women luxury haircare, inspired by nature. Set in a converted farmhouse surrounded by a garden, our salon offers easy access, free parking and a high level of privacy. With a dedicated product area, we stock the full range of Aveda skincare, bodycare and make up. Since we opened the doors five years ago, we’ve added floor space and grown into a team of eight by keeping the focus on personal service. Also an Aveda Education Centre, we’re committed to ongoing training to keep our style on trend and our services fresh.


How can I find out more?

Many clients visit the salon and ‘interview’ us before we touch their hair. Plus, this summer we’re offering 20% off any blonde colour service for new clients.
