We started Mavericks 20 years ago in March 1999. We wanted the salon to be different, to bring a city style salon into Alcester, we have experimented with many things, a coffee bar area, an piercing studio, we even had our own boutique in the salon.

We have had many challenges throughout the 20 years, 3 massive water leaks, a financial recession, a baby, Alcester flooding !. We even design our own hair brush, Dtach, used around the world.

India our daughter has now joined the team, she has grown up in the salon, and we are very proud that she runs the blowdry bar.  We have raised over £20000 for local charities including Shakespeare Hospice and the Greg fund.

We moved into our current location 5 years ago, and thanks to our wonderful team have gone from strength to strength.

Our strap line has always and will always be Doing things Differently, we strive to do everything to our best ability, we strive to ensure that our hairdressing is the best in the area and I believe that our team is the best.

We could not done anything without you our guests in the salon, I still remember my first guest that I did in the salon 20 years ago. We have always treated you as guests, not clients in the salon and that will always continue So I thankyou so much for your support over the 20 years ,

Our new Mavericks card is also now available so please speak to our team for more information.

Once again thankyou for your support in 2018

Best Wishes 

Sarah & Martyn

Mavericks Hair tip  -

If your hair is looking dull in colour, flat in body and dry on the ends, then here are some tips on getting your hair back to its ultimate condition and shine.

Massaging your scalp daily for ten minutes has an incredible effect on the hair. It will relieve tension on the scalp and also increase the blood flow to encourage thicker, healthier and longer hair.

Have a salon treatment for your hair, a regular conditioner is not the same and will not do the same job HERE'S THE DIFFERENCE ...

If you can picture tiles on a roof, a regular conditioner will only partially penetrate the cuticles. Therefore it will sit just underneath the lip of the tile.

While in the short term this will make your hair feel soft and look shiny, this will only last until you next wash your hair. A salon treatment will penetrate deep into the cortex to repair the disulphide bonds repairing and strengthening the hair.

It is very tempting to blast your hair off on top speed, and the highest heat then bang the straighteners over the top of frizzy curly hair desperately trying to get that smooth finish. But all you're doing is putting your hair under an incredible amount of stress, and the long-term damage will definitely result in weakened hair.

Remember, when your hair is wet it is at its most delicate. Use a leave in treatment or conditioning spray to ease through tangles. Take care and time to do this bit right and use a wide toothed comb or tangle teaser to gently comb the hair.

Always try to use a heat protection spray or a lightweight leave-in conditioner that protects from heat. Put your dryer on a medium or gentle heat and always point the dryer nozzle downwards, keeping the dryer blowing down the hair shaft, this will encourage shine.


The New Year is a great chance to talk to your stylist about hair colour, perhaps a small change to your current colour, remembering that warm colours will add texture and shine to your hair, whilst cooler colours will give you more depth, definition and make your hair look thicker. Even more by adding both colours together we can create some amazing results. Here are a few trends that will be popular this year                                                                                               

Copper Velvet

Copper is a reddish brown colour and has always been a popular hair colour, but Copper Velvet is a super wearable beautiful multi-tonal shade that is luxurious and luxe looking. It’s impossible to create any version of Copper Velvet at home because of the

nuances in tone and the technical complexities that make up the shade. The professional touch has never been so important for creating something that is so truly bespoke like Copper Velvet.                                                                       

Blunt Bobs

For 2019, we will see a move away from shattered and layered hair towards a blunter, sharper look,to something more precise and above the shoulder, with no layers or longer layers. This look is worn roughly halfway between your ears and the nape of the neck. Done correctly, it will do wonders for your bone structure and is often the gateway to an even shorter do.

We envisage it being a move away from the mid length boyfriend bob, which was so popular last season,                             

Ultra Gloss

Hair that looks great and healthy but is effortless is always something that people aspire to have! Whether you add a soft and tousled wave, a loose modern kick instead of a curl or go for a perfectly polished sleek do, the mirror like shine is something that will be key for next year. The aim is for your hair to have the ultimate maximum shine.

It was a hair cut that shocked society when it was first created by hairdresser Antoine de Paris in France in 1909, and it's been in fashion ever since. Over a century later and it's still one of the hottest hairstyles to have; whether you opt for a long bob aka the Lob, a shoulder-grazing choppy style or a blunt jaw-skimmer - the bob is the A-list hairstyle du jour.

Long bob, LOB, box bob, blunt bob. 

The list goes on, but this haircut will always be a firm favourite, and this season there is a move towards a sharper blunt cut bob with very long or no layers.

This versatile style can be worn poker straight, beachy or even more sophisticated with smooth 1920’s uniform waves. Make sure you always have a thorough consultation with your sylist as face shape is a major influence on the length of this style. If your face is slightly rounder, then We would suggest keeping the length an inch below your jawline. Or if you want to keep it uber modern, have the length gliding just above your shoulders but keep that line blunt and sharp.                                                                                                                                                    

Pop Brights

'Hues of peach and yellow pops are very popular at the moment! Copper auburn with a pop colour of pink, peach or yellow is also trending, and an extremely simple yet effective way to change your colour.'


We are now using only the REF products which are all vegan, except for their waxes that do contain Bees wax. We feel that this move allows us to stop harming animals, plus vegan products help with the environment, which is important to all of us. We will also be offering soya milk with refreshments and also a selection of vegan chocolates etc with your refreshments. 

The permanent and semi permanent colour are now vegan, also so is our perm lotion.

MAVERICKS   THE ENVIROMENT  THE OCEAN                                                                                                                                                                                                The Mavericks team have become increasingly aware of the damage we are all doing to our oceans with single use plastics, so we have started to look at how we can help. We have already installed a water dispensing fountain and all the team have been given free water bottles, plus all the team have agreed not to bring into the salon any single use bottles. We are now looking at the rest of business to see how we can help.    





Those words might sound terrifying for anyone who survived the ‘80s, but stay calm – the new generation of perms could persuade you to join the curl world

The ’80s had some unfortunate moments when it came to perms – but Cher, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Beals and even Justin Timberlake proved that a perm can be cool and certainly no barrier to global megastar status. The word ‘perm’ brings up connotations of that super curly, old-style perm but technology and taste has moved on.

And now the perm is making a comeback – it’s one of the latest hair trends which have slowly been working its way back. The 2018 perm is much softer and gentler now.

The trick is to forget everything you already knew about perms. The new Maxi Perm (pictured above) – wound on long rubber rods rather than perm rollers and delivering full-on, unapologetically big and lively curls like Carrie Bradshaw in the first series of Sex and the City – looks great with a simple, longer shape and only needs a mousse to style it. Leave in treatments help the hair feel softer and look more believable.

And then there’s the softer Braid like Perm (pictured left). This is the perm for 2018 it is great for those with fine, lifeless, hard-to-manage hair. The result is super-soft, loose waves that alter the texture of the hair – making it look fuller and thicker and easier to style.
