Sharing its sixth birthday with Village Eye, like a well maintained head of hair, Worthingtons The Salon in Burghfield has gone from strength to strength.

It hardly seems possible that six years has passed since Worthingtons The Salon first opened their doors to the public in Burghfield Common.  From humble beginnings as ‘The Hair Shop’ some twenty-one years ago, Emma, Laura and their and their team have worked tirelessly to create an oasis for hair and Ebeauty treatments; since taking over the premises providing a luxurious setting and service at not-so-luxurious prices.  “We wanted to create a salon which would appeal to the wide demographic this village serves. Our clients range from career women, to busy mums, to men and older clientele” Laura told us.

“Our aim is to provide every client that comes through our door with a first class service and most importantly with hair and bodies they are proud of”. In addition to their selection of male and female cuts, blow-drys and colour options, their range of services now also extends to nails, waxing, facials, spray tans and even childrens Princess Pamper Birthday Parties!

A Big-Hearted Business

“We love what we do,” explains salon owner Emma.  “All of our team are fab, and with the amazing support of my managers Laura and Paige, our aim is to deliver 100% to our wonderful clients. We have a high rebooking rate which tells us we must be getting it right too.  We’re a village salon at the heart of a great community.  We love how we’ll be mid-treatment and the client will bump into a friend, a family member or a colleague w

hilst they are with us!  If I could describe Worthingtons, I’d definitely say that we are a small salon with a big heart”.In addition to all things hair, the salon also offer a wide selection of beauty services including tanning, waxing, facials, massages, manicures and luxury pedicures.

One of the salons appeals is that they have introduced late night opening twice a week for those who simply cannot get away from work or life’s demands during the day.  On Wednesdays they are open until 7 and on Thursdays until 8 and, for those who wish to accept it, a glass of wine will always be offered (if the client is over 18!)

Such is Worthington’s success, they are currently hiring. Offering a great place to work, they are asking for qualified stylists and beauticians to get in touch to find out more.  If you are interested in working with this great bunch of ladies, please contact

Giving Something Back

This year has seen the girls all dressed in their pyjamas for comic relief where they raffled off a luxury Paul Mitchell hamper and various services which raised a massive £306!! Thank you to everyone that donated. We also raised money at the May Fayre by doing lots of hair ups and raffling services for Mrs. Blands Infant school.  Worthingtons also cut hair (free of charge) for the Little Princess Trust who make real hair wigs for children suffering hair loss du

e to cancer treatment.  As well as their own charity efforts, Worthingtons also donate prizes and gift vouchers to support the local schools, nurseries and more recently the Arborfield military wives choir.

Worthingtons also sponsor the local Burghfield CSA football team.  But it doesn’t stop there…  Worthingtons¹ community spirit can be seen in action as they escort less able clients across the busy road and have even picked them up when their car has broken down – now that’s service!


Worthingtons really do go the extra mile to make sure their customers know how much they’re appreciated, with lots of loyalty rewards in place.
