We opened our salon in 1986 with the aim of having a salon that combines high end hairdressing with a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

The BA1 Hair service is professional, unpretentious and personal. We are proud of the fact we are totally independent, we have freedom from corporate restraint and can act in the best interests of our clients and staff.

Our philosophy is to make hairdressing a great experience for the client and everything we do is centered towards that aim.

Come and enjoy!

Phil & Zac

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 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.”

You’re In Safe Hands

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.
