WELCOME

I started BA1 Hair in 1986… hairdressing is my life and my passion. I’m not motivated by opening more salons but by the quality of this salon.

1986

We have had strong values at BA1 Hair since our foundation in 1986.

Our Values

We believe hair should be appropriate to the client;

We never concoct styles that just wash out but cut a shape that stays in the hair, making it quick and simple to create each day. Individual and practical that’s our goal.

The BA1 Hair service is professional, unpretentious and personnel.

Our clients feel welcome and relaxed.

Our staff to be well trained, happy and motivated.

We are proud of the fact we are totally independent, we have the freedom from corporate restraint and can act in the best interests of our clients and staff.

The BA1 Hair philosophy is to make the hairdressing a great experience for the client and everything we do is centred towards that aim.

Come and enjoy!

Our Ethos

 At BA1 Hair we believe everything is personal; including our relationship with our clients and our staff. We want our staff to love coming to work and our guests to love the BA1 Hair experience.

No 5 Bartlett St is home to our beautiful salon. The amazing building offers a unique space split over different levels, all accentuated by massive skylights and windows offering plenty of natural light. With the addition of our passionate team and loyal customers the salon comes to life with a friendly buzz.

Established in 1986 by founding director Philip Thompson, and later joined by fellow director Zac Fennell, the salon is a dynamic, creative and a fun place to work.


“We are committed to our clients, our service and our craft. Our independence allows us the ability to put our clients at the centre of everything we do.”

Sarah Mansfield, Director and Chair of Bath in Fashion
BA1Hair are always on hand to help add style and content to events in the city. They have supported Bath in Fashion at shows and on photo shoots for the last 7 years and approach everything with great professionalism. It would have been very difficult to get Bath in Fashion started in 2009 without this sort of support. It is this sort of shared approach that helps us punch above our weight with city centre events and promotions.
Naomi Knight, Director of Bath VA
Since 2012 BA1Hair has participated at the Bath VA vintage fashion fair. Each year at the event Phil and his team generously give their time and skills for free in order to raise money for charity. On the day they create a fantastic pop up hair salon offering vintage up-do's (impossible to do on your own) and treat hundreds of women to a great hairstyle. It's been one of the big successes to Bath VA, our thanks.
