A visit to the hairdressers is more than just for a haircut, it’s our time to escape the stresses of our everyday lives for some well-needed TLC and to treat ourselves to some ‘me’ time.

And this is exactly what quirky, luxury Heaton hair salon, Leaf Hairdressing, is all about. But thanks to their newly opened wellbeing room we can now turn our hair appointment into a full day of pampering letting us focus on our manes, minds and muscles, all under one roof. 

From their friendly five-star client experience to top eco credentials, not to mention their stunning rustic, industrial and edgy interior, featuring their in-house art gallery, a hair appointment at Leaf Hairdressing is a cut above the rest – and here’s why… 


As soon as you step foot inside Leaf Hairdressing, Heaton, you’ll be blown away by the industrial interior. From reclaimed scaffolding boards to metal pipework and tube clamps and a collection of unique art hanging on every wall, the contemporary, chic but rustic decor is so unique. But one feature inside this eco-friendly hair salon that really makes a statement is captivating renaissance murals on the ceiling in Leaf’s new massage backwash zone with ambient lighting and reclining shiatsu massage basins so that you can truly get lost during your treatment. 

Home in the heart of Heaton Road, Leaf Hairdressing has been owned by Katie for nearly three decades. She is passionate about being a sustainable salon and continues to keep updated with the latest trends and treatments and to help develop her talented and experienced team of stylists who specialise in balayage, styling and colour. 

Providing a five-star service is at the heart of a visit to Leaf. Expect to be served a wide range of beverages, whether it be cans of soft drinks, sparkling water, Fortnum & Mason fruit teas, fresh Rombouts Coffee and decaf drinks. Leaf Hairdressing feels more like sitting in a beautiful house rather than a salon, and at every turn, you’ll discover interesting features.


At the core of Leaf’s ethos is sustainability following a refit back in 2007. And one part of this process was making Aveda their main supplier whose products are vegan, cruelty-free, 97% chemical free, manufactured using 100% wind power and packaged in recycled bottles and jars. 

Leaf Hairdressing has recently introduced its new botanical repair range, a revolutionary new system for strengthening hair from the inside – it really does work miracles. 


But here’s the part we’ve all been waiting for… Leaf Hairdressing’s new well-being room. Sage Therapies & Coaching are now offering to connect with your mind soul, body, and spirit through reflexology and Reiki. Level up your hair appointment by treating yourself to a luxurious wellbeing treatment. Whether you’re suffering from tense muscles or stiff joints and need a deeply relaxing hot stone massage or need some wellbeing coaching to help you feel like yourself again, we can guarantee you’ll feel zen after visiting Leaf’s new wellbeing room. 



Leaf has recently opened a new event space that is available to hire and will be hosting book clubs, pop-up events, life drawing classes and as an educational space. Plus, they’ve also installed a new gorgeous kitchen with a big range cooker so can now offer supper club evenings for clients, too.

After lockdown, socialising has changed with many of us now preferring more intimate, private gatherings. With a limited number of venues offering this in Newcastle, Leaf Hairdressing is proud to hire its big social space for evenings with friends which features a specially commissioned huge reclaimed oak table that seats 12 people comfortably. You’ll also have access to the new kitchen where to cook your own food on-site or bring your own chef.

To book your luxury pamper day, visit Leaf Hairdressing’s website.
