About VK Hair Styling

Luxurious but affordable Wella gift sets available at VK Hair Styling, Barkway, Hertfordshire.

VK Hair Styling is the collaboration by a team of dedicated people, all hand picked, who have the same aspirations. To make your experience at our salon the most enjoyable and pleasing it could possibly be.

It all started after stumbling across the perfect location for a hair salon in the village of Barkway between Royston and Buntingford. This sparked a desire and passion to create a hair salon where people would be truly welcome and find the experience so enjoyable that they would look forward to coming back time and time again.

This is the story of how those ambitions came to fruition that is VK Hair Styling today. It started with the shop as it looked in this picture on the day we took it over.


The interior of the shop required a lot of imagination and vision to picture it operating as a chic, boutique hair salon. But with that in mind we set about designing and drawing up the plans.view from north shop wall of old cupboard used for housing hot water cylinder

A lot of time was spent arranging cardboard boxes and sticking masking tape on the floor and walls to work out what was the best configuration for the salon. These rough layouts were then turned into 3D drawings to see how the design would actually work.3D_From_North

With the design finalised it was now time to get down to the hard-work of taking the plans and turning them into reality. This included lots of major construction on the inside …kitchen and shop units delivered

… and on the outside.old sole plate and rotten part of studs removed

A very stylish and functional kitchen was installed.kitchen from lobby entrance

And the salon was finally ready. All the mirrors on the walls, the backwash basins plumbed in and the styling chairs in place ready for the first customers through the door on the 4th of November 2014.DSC_1351
