The Real Salon is a contemporary hair, body and beauty salon in the heart of West Bridgford.

At Real we are passionate about hair, skincare and wellbeing. We recognise that feeling good about ourselves, inside and out, helps contribute to our quality of life.

Important notice

It is with much regret and sadness that we have temporarily closed the salon. We feel that in light of the government advice for social distancing, it is impossible to continue.

We know that what we do for many of you is much more than a haircut or a beauty treatment, we believe we have a REAL community and we will be doing all we can to keep in touch via email and through the website sharing updates as things unfold. 

We know the coming days and weeks will be filled with uncertainty and we want to help support you as best we can. We are exploring giving one to one calls for people in our community who may get overlooked. If you know someone who would value a regular call, or would like one yourself get in touch and we will put the wheels in motion to make it happen.

Esther and I will be checking the phone messages and emails regularly and will get back to you to answer any questions you may have.

We ask that if you have an appointment between now and the 25th April you send us an email info@realsalon.co.uk to confirm you will not be attending.

When the time is right, we look forward to welcoming you, your long locks or chipped nails back into the salon.

We would like to say thank you for your loyalty and support in these troubling and strange times.

Keep well and safe.

Helen and the team.


A number of clients have asked to be able to view the  video we put out this week on our Social Media streams.

So for those of you who don't have Facebook or Instagram we are working on adding it to our website for you to see it, won't be long, hopefully.

Don't just listen to us...listen to Real people!

Brilliant. Jodie was very warm and welcoming, and very professional. A lovely relaxing experience and skin feels fab now.

Always love having my nails done...plus a catch up and a giggle.

Excellent as always!

Fantastic cut! Lovely atmosphere, good coffee and lovely chat. Just what a lady needs!

Not rushed, very relaxing and worth every penny!

Fantastic as always, a warm welcome, great cut, and conversation, a very relaxing experience
