” Experience The Retreat – we are at the forefront
of helping you feel fantastic. “
There are always new developments in hair and beauty and The Retreat is at the forefront of helping you feel fantastic.
We are constantly looking to improve and exceed the service we offer to our clients. We want all our guests to feel welcome and at ease. As a result, we communicate better and deliver the best results for each and every one of our guests. Alongside our unisex hair and beauty services we found that some of our guests wanted a more relaxing and quiet hairdressing environment and that’s when the VIP Lounge was born.
All our staff are trained to the very highest level of beauty, hairdressing, customer service and consultation skills.
We are a recognised NVQ training salon.
Our salon, based in the centre of Wokingham, offers a complete range of hair and beauty services for busy people juggling work, family and friends. And that includes an ever growing male clientele too.
Founded in 1981, The Retreat is a large, well-established business with a reputation for giving friendly, personal service. The spacious, airy salon exudes a warm and friendly ambience which is also reflected by the happy and enthusiastic team.
The Retreat is an established business that has been trading from 23 Denmark Street in Wokingham since 1981. Initially opening just as a hairdressing salon, Helen Belcher, ITEC, BABTAC, joined the business in 1989 and operated a beauty salon from one room in the basement. The business grew, Helen became a Director, graduated to the top floor and more therapists and hairdressers were employed!
In 2012 Helen Belcher took over the ownership of The Retreat and is looking forward to the next 30 years!
“Our Mission is to create a balance between the client, team member and business and to create an environment that people enjoy coming to for high quality service.”
