Hilltop Beauty Salon is a family run business founded by Kathleen Basye in 1980. The salon, in the heart of Highgate Village still operates from its original building although was extended many years ago from three treatment rooms to seven.
Hilltop is now under the ownership of Kathleen’s daughter Amanda Basye along with her daughter Vanessa bringing together 3 generations of knowledge, high levels of service and innovation to this unique business.
We have brought together a highly motivated and trained team of therapists who genuinely care about their clients, their work environment and their colleagues. Their aim is to carry out excellent treatments using the best products whilst building a relationship with each client.
We are fully insured and receive training updates at regular intervals to ensure that our clients are always well protected and our therapists feel confident to deliver the most professional treatments at all times.
Keeping the salon spotlessly clean is an essential part of our day. We maintain very high standards of hygiene at all times. Disposable equipment is used where relevant and a recognised disinfectant solution is used on equipment in-between each client.
Our mission is to provide our clients with an atmosphere of relaxation and first class service every time they visit. It is our belief that a good treatment works from the inside out, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and ready to face the world! If at any time we do not meet your expectations please allow us to work towards a satisfactory solution.
We cherish each and everyone of our clients and hope that you become part of the Hilltop family.
