Best Hairdressers in Oxford
Super-stylish Mahogany Hairdressing boasts not one, but two brilliant hair salons in Oxford.
They offer a wide range of services, from a classic cut and finish to a full head of colour, balayage, and toning treatments. Add on the intensive conditioning treatment for just £15 and you’ll also get an Indian Head Massage thrown in for good measure.
While their prices might be on the higher end of the scale (read: eye-wateringly spenny), their team is made up of the excellent International Creative Director Colin Greaney and Anthony Licata, the UK Creative Director, alongside an equally-talented team of junior and senior stylists.
PS. If you are lucky enough to be blessed with youth, they offer a generous 20% student discount.

Practical Tips for Booking Hairdressers in Oxford
- If you’re looking to save money, salons will tier their pricing depending on the skill level of the hairdresser – opting for a junior stylist (especially if you’re only after a trim) can often half the cost. Also, keep your eyes peeled for student discounts and training days.
