About us...

The salon at 53 is a small, friendly unisex salon based in the centre of Swanage.


Our salon promises to deliver a top quality service in all aspects of hairdressing.  We ONLY employ FULLY qualified hairdressers and indentured apprentices who will use top quality products supported by continuous education to achieve excellent results.


We aim to create an unpretentious environment where it is all about the client and NOT about us!   To achieve this our staff are happy, friendly and fun loving.  They are not only trained to a high standard but are excellent communicators and enjoy chatting and listening to their clients – a salon experience that everyone enjoys.
