Article by Piers Meyler: A hairdressing and beauty salon in Billericay High Street has been receiving rave reviews after its rebranding and makeover.
Andrew John Hairdressing at 140 High Street Billericay was known for years as Red Hair and was distinctive for its red and white branding.
The salon offers a range of products alongside hairdressing, including beauty treatments and personal fitness from a first floor studio.
Andrew John's new manager Nicky Radley said:

They have said the refurbishment has made a massive difference to the salon. It is more welcoming and has a warmer feel to it – we have just had lots of really positive feedback.[/quote]
Customers can now relax surrounded by warm brown, gold and cream.
[quote width="auto" align="none" border="#0066cc" color="#0066cc" title="Quoted by"]Andy, the owner, knew we needed to rebrand and refurbish the salon to match the High Street outside. We have changed all the products that we use and we now use really high quality Aveda Rituals products. Customers get a complimentary hand or neck and head massage when they come in. The existing staff have stayed but we have new staff as well, meaning there are a total of seven staff. We have done some building work – we have put in a new wall to the salon room and there is a carpet at the front where there wasn't one before. When I first joined in January we looked at the High Street and saw that the salon didn't really match the feel of the other shops and buildings. We decided to tone it down and now it fits into the rest of the street much better.[/quote]
