Who knows which Torquay Hair Salon could be considered the “Best Hairdressers In Torquay“. To answer this question we need to consider much more than just the quality of the hairdressing service itself. We consider all aspects of a Salon business to help you determine an answer to this question based on what clients have told us.
The cost of the service is obviously a determining factor for may salon clients however not as much as one might think. In fact in a recent survey carried out with Torquay ladies who regularly visit salons only 63% said that hair salon prices were the determining factor of why they choose a salon. That leaves 37 ladies in every 100 choosing a salon based on something other than the price of the service. Check out our Torquay Hair Salon Prices table for a comparison of the Prices of the local hair salons in Torquay.
As you can see from the table below the prices salons charge for services vary considerably. The prices here at H & Co Hair Salon are typically average for the area.

Does it matter where a salon is located? The answer is yes, most definitely. Our survey revealed that 32% of Torquay ladies feel that the location and ease of parking of a salon is a determining factor in their choice of which Torquay Salon to use. This makes sense given that we all live busy lives, the last thing any of us want is to drive miles to get to a salon or have to walk a long way to the salon due to poor parking.
Our location in Babbacombe is ideal in many ways. Firstly the Torquay to Teignmouth Road is one of the main routes in and out of Torquay, the road is rarely congested and it benefits from not being a Town Centre Salon since there is plenty of available parking all around the salon.
The Overall Experience
The feeling you get when entering a Hair Salon and how you feel when you leave are often about much more than the cut, style or colour you have had. The overall Salon experience for most women is a driving factor in how they determine which is the “Best Salon”. The salon experience includes the basics such as how you are greeted, how long you are kept waiting, your consultation, how relaxed you feel and if the salon simply makes you feel good. The refreshments you are offered and the attentiveness and dedication of the staff that you deal with are also an important factor and importantly how easy the salon makes it for you to deal with them.
The H & Co Experience
We believe that the overall experience starts well before you enter the salon itself. With our lives getting busier and busier we often only have time to think about our Hair needs outside of working hours.

Your stylist will confirm your needs once again and after providing the service will ensure that you are happy with the service that has been provided. Your stylist will discuss our in salon product range based on your hair type and needs and will show you any products that they might recommend to you giving you the choice to purchase these if you wish.
