Salon Owner & Manager:
As the proud owner of two successful hair salons and celebrating 30 years in business in 2019, husband and wife team Tracie and Des Webb have been providing exceptional haircare in Sudbury and Colchester. As a self-confessed perfectionist, no detail is too small and no style too ambitious for Des who enjoys working with both men and women's hair, but has a particular passion for hairstyles requiring a little TLC and some expertise to take them to that next level.
Whilst hair products, styling tools and fashions may have advanced greatly throughout the 30 years, one thing has main constant and that's Des's unmistakeable drive to teach his staff the highest possible standard of hairdressing.
