It has been a pleasure to serve all our customers over the past 11 years and we sincerely thank you for all your support.

The Salon at 53 is able to carry out all aspects of hairdressing, from basic cut and colour to clip-in hair extensions and wedding hair.

We understand every individual has specific requirements, so we are happy to offer each client a FREE in-depth consultation, to discuss their needs and budget, prior to any appointment, enabling us to achieve and deliver your desired results.

I can't thank Erika enough for the lovely service I had and I look amazing, the colour is perfect and the cut was outstanding. The time and care taken was above and beyond,  the coffee was lovely and for the first time in ages my hair felt pampered.

Erika and the other women who took care of me were so wonderful. At first I was unsure about the colour but it was just the dim lighting at my station. Now I can't stop looking at it. I feel like a new person. Really made my day! Very talented stylists !! Thanks again.

Thank you Corine for all your efforts to enable us Swanage residents to feel safe and to enjoy our visit and a huge thank you to Emma for your expertise and for giving me a brilliant haircut which has been unbelievably easy to manage. You are a true star.

Top marks to this salon and to Corine. She has been my hair stylist for 5 years and I have never had a bad cut and style. She shows true professionalism and her cutting is brilliant. Her team are also all so friendly and the salon has such a good feeling when you walk in. 10/10 every time.
