Being Authentic is much more than just hair. We want to take the intimidation out of hairdressing and salon services.

Authentic Self isn’t about a “production line” of hairdressing, it’s about a bespoke service for each individual who visits. Our award winning salon* is located in the heart of Belpers heritage centre, in a relaxed, comfortable and creative space.


Authentic Self is about working with the health and condition of the hair. We look at the individual needs of each guest, to find a new part of themselves or maybe it is a little part of the original self that needs a revamp.

Healthy hair is more important than any on-trend colour, this is a key factor when working with an organic and sustainable product line. We want everyone to know that having your hair cut or coloured should never have to involve the testing on animals at any point. We are proud to use such amazing product lines as L’anza and OWAY (Organic Way) hair care, which you can find out more about under our product page.

Working with modern up-to-date technical services and on trend looks, from flawless naturals to beautiful bold Vibes and bright modern colour ranges from L’anza, from which we have won awards for their uses within the salon**.

We are also the only salon within the East Midlands to offer Scalp Services for both male and female hair loss and other scalp issues, a Wig Centre with a large range of high quality, synthetic and human-hair, medical grade wigs and female Hair Integration for thinning and hair loss.


So if you want an ethical, relaxed and a modern salon space, please feel free to call in for a free consultation or contact us via e-mail or phone if you have any questions.


We cannot wait to meet you and welcome you to our award winning salon and help you find your “ AUTHENTIC SELF ”.
