Your Salon Visit

As the Government’s Covid restrictions ease from July 19th, the safety of our guests and team members remains our top priority. After careful consideration, we have decided to keep most of our safety systems in place. Face coverings and social distancing will remain in place to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable visit.

As an extra precaution, we ask that all clients continue to wear a face covering & adhere to our covid restrictions when visiting the salon unless exempt.

You can book your hair appointment by calling us on 01483 957047. If you are having your hair coloured, you will require a quick AAT before your appointment. 

Payment for Services

Client Care

Skin Testing: An allergy alert (AAT) test is required before all hair colouring services at Hair Lab hair salon in Basingstoke to allow us to check for sensitivity and reactions to the hair colouring products that we use. We offer free Allergy Alert Tests (also known as skin testing and patch testing) in our salon.  You will need to make an appointment to attend the salon at least 48 hours before your hair colour service for your test.
