At Forresters Reading hair salon

Glamour and comfort


Forresters Reading Hair Salon, 227 Shinfield Road

Recently updated with luxury finishes, contemporary interior design features and a new superior comfort backwash, the Forresters Reading hair salon is glamourous and full of personality.

The Foresters Reading hair salon is franchised by Robbie Robertson.

Robbie is the Forresters group Technical Director and is a creative colour guru. Robbie’s colour expertise is passed on to our trainees at the Forresters Hair Academy in Reading and he oversees colour work in the group salon branches across Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

If you suffer from hair loss and scalp problems, we offer advice, microscopic hair analysis and LA BIOSTHÉTIQUE treatment programmes for men and women at the Forresters Reading salon.

The salon is tucked back from the main road in a parade of shops but is easy to see from the road. There is plenty of parking either in the front of the salon in marked bays or in the surrounding roads.

The Reading hair salon is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday with a late night on Friday until 7pm. We’re closed all day on Wednesdays.

For information and advice or to make an appointment, call the salon on 0118 987 2860.
