HL2 Hairdressing

Where Style Happens & Service Matters

We pride ourselves on customer service. Our professionally trained TiGi stylists take the time to advise you on the very best cuts and colours personalised just for you. Equipped with professional tools and products, our stylists give you a client focused service that the bigger salons simply cannot beat. We work together with you toward the goal of great hair that will make you feel amazing.

Overlooking the historical Penenden Heath, HL2 Hairdressing lies just a couple of minutes outside the busy Maidstone Town Centre. From the moment you walk through the door of HL2 Hairdressing, we aim to make you feel welcome and at ease, as we understand that trying out a new salon can be a nerve-racking experience for anyone. Our unique decor features urban industrial brushed steel, warm wood and a splash of decandence from the crystal chandelier and backlit mirrors - a cozy haven and creative hub where you can relax while we restyle you. We want you to love your hair as much as you love coming to our salon.

HL2 Hairdressing was first established in 2012 when Vanessa Osment, a West End trained stylist of over 30 years, opened the first Hair Lounge in Maidstone. Initially, Vanessa started out working alone and eventually was hiring more and more staff and now needed another base where the business could be expanded upon. The loyal customer base establishehd at Hair Lounge over the 5 years would follow to Penenden Heath and provide the foundation for the successful opening of HL2 hairdressing in June 2017.
