What makes us different

Our promise to you

Popham hairdressing is Oxford’s Sassoon Professional Partner and the only UK hairdressing company to be awarded Champion Investor in People.

We believe it’s a privilege to be trusted to change the way a person looks, even transform how they feel about themselves.

In a contemporary setting, we use a consultative approach to ensure an exemplary result.


What you can expect from us

Allocated time

An hour is allocated for each cut and finish to ensure your stylist can finish the job with care and creativity.

Hair consultation

Our unique six-step process ensures your preferences drive our recommendations.


As a Sassoon Professional Partner salon, our cutting focuses on creating the right shape for you and your hair.


The workstations have three- way mirrors giving our stylist a three- dimensional view of your head, a great design tool.


We only use Sassoon Professional products to wash and condition and Chromatology to colour.


Our tools are fresh and hygienic for each client – no tool holsters full of clippings and no used brushes.

Cancellations: we charge 50% if appointments are cancelled on the same day and we cannot fill the space.

What you'll enjoy at our salons


We serve Nespresso coffee and Twinings infusions so you get to choose your favourite. Let us know if you are lactose intolerant and we will provide an alternative.

Green hygiene

Enjoy complete peace of mind knowing that our disposable gowns and towels are 100% biodegradable.

Health and safety

The highest levels are practised at all times at all salons.

Fast broadband

Just ask for the salon password, and remember to ‘Check in’ to get a £10 discount off your next cut.

Three-way mirrors

The workstations have three-way mirrors giving our stylist a three dimensional view of you.


All conditioning treatments are included in the service price. If you’re interested in buying a product we give you the advice without the pushy sales talk. A blow dry, done by an assistant, is included in your colour service. If you would prefer, you can book a blow dry with your stylist at an additional cost.

After your visit

Appointment reminders

We send text message and email reminders, 24 hours before any booked appointments. We will also send you a reminder when your next appointment is due. Just give your mobile number and email to the receptionist. Reminders will state which salon you are booked into.


Popham newsletter

To make sure you don’t miss out on any special offers, exciting innovations or news, we’ll send your our monthly newsletter.


Free fringe trims

Often a fringe will start getting in your eyes before it’s time for your next cut, so please let us know if you need a free fringe trim.


Product replacement

If you purchase any Sassoon Professional haircare or finishing product and find that it’s not suitable, please bring it back and we’ll swap it for another one.


Unconditional guarantees

If you are not happy with your haircut or colour for any reason, we will do it again.

What people say about us

  • Thank you so much!! I spent time here on Tuesday, everything was done extremely thoroughly and I’m very pleased with the end result. After having a cut and colour with Luise and Ashton I would definitely go back to them again. Always a relaxed atmosphere at Popham and the new salon is beautiful!

  • Molly was great today, she listened to my colour needs and interpreted exactly what I wanted. My experience at the salon was nice and relaxing, with a lovely head massage and a good coffee. I really couldn’t fault the standard of the service at the salon and the way Molly looked after me.. I will definitely return!

    September 2017

  • Really pleased. Kate listened exactly to what I wanted and the brighter colour is just what I needed. I am really pleased with how the colours seamlessly join together without any stripes.

    Thanks Kate.

  • It’s incredible what a transformation a quality haircut can do. That’s what Dean did for me in just over an hour. At school pick up that afternoon, I had so many compliments. Thank you Dean!

    September 2017

  • Ashtan was happy to talk to me about what I wanted, and how different styles would look given my type of hair. She cut it beautifully and gave me advice on how to wear it best.

    September 2017

  • I’ve been coming to Popham’s for many years now, having tried many other Oxford hairdressers. What I value so much about Popham’s is the care that David and Shirley take to ensure that all the staff are given the opportunity to develop their careers and themselves to the best they can be. In this way, they have created a team of highly skilled and motivated staff, and a warm and happy atmosphere in the salon, so everyone gains.

    Thank you Jo for another beautiful haircut – your perfectionism is so much appreciated!

  • Ali listened carefully to everything I said, then gave me excellent colour and a fabulous cut! Everyone loves it, and seems to think it makes me look years younger – an unexpected benefit! Thanks so much – I’ll be back!

    June 2017

  • Vitor was excellent – attentive to my requests, provided his own creative vision and did an amazing job! Thank you so much!

    June 2017

  • Another perfect colour by the best colourist ever. Kate just manages to do it every time. She’s the very best.

    June 2017

  • A fantastic first-ever cut with Dean – in the consultation he listened really carefully to what I wanted, and then checked in to make sure I was happy with what he was doing as we went along. He was full of great ideas for making the cut work for me and my hair, and clearly loves what he does. Thanks for brightening my morning, and for a gorgeous cut and finish.

    June 2017

  • You don’t have an appointment you have an experience! Lovely atmosphere, great look. Couldn’t have asked for more! Luise never fails to make my hair look and feel healthy and glossy. So pleased with the result! Fantastic!
