Established in 2005, the cutting room has rapidly become one of Cheltenham’s leading hair salons. Simon Greaves’ unending passion for offering great looking haircuts and styles in welcoming and comfortable surroundings means his reputation by word-of-mouth alone has planted the salon’s feet firmly under the table of the Cheltenham elite.

Simon’s enthusiasm for creating the perfect salon experience began when he opened Billy Shears 11 years ago in Bishop’s Cleeve and a second salon three years later in Prestbury. the cutting room launched in Cheltenham two years later, with a contemporary look and feel. It is also one of the first salons in Gloucestershire to open seven days a week, something which has been hugely popular with clients.

“I firmly believe you get out of a business what you put into it, and I apply that philosophy throughout all my salons. I get a real buzz from seeing the salon come to life each day and feel immense pride when I see the stylists develop and shine in their own way.

the cutting room has attracted a team of fantastic stylists who are as passionate about the business as I am. We all love working with our diverse client base, from children and students to men and women of all ages, and enjoy building a rapport with them. I believe my salons’ success is purely down to offering clients what they want affordable haircuts that are personal to them, done by experienced stylists that truly care about making them feel fantastic.”
