About Us

Carlton Hair salons is a story of how a dream and a passion for the craft can go a long way.

Carlton Hair salons began in 1968 with a vision to set ourselves apart – higher standards of hairdressing, satisfied clients and passionate stylists.

We realise that our success will be determined primarily by the experience each client has with our company. Our strong and visionary management team is continuously building a fashion-orientated company that will always be the performance leader in the hairdressing industry.

We are a dynamic and well established company which enjoys a reputation as an innovative company. We pride ourselves in being in touch with the latest trends in beauty, fashions, equipment and technology.

Today with 24 salons situated in all major upmarket shopping centres in major cities across South Africa, Carlton Hair salons is recognised as the leading hairdressing company, and a retailer of unique, premium sustainable products.

Carlton Hair Salons is the official hair partner for South African Fashion Week (SAFW), sponsor of the South African Style Awards (SASA) and is proud to be associated with CANSA and Movember.

“Our mission is to provide a platform of supreme professionalism from which the stylist can operate to achieve unrivalled status in the industry, thereby ensuring the finest standards in hairdressing.”

Your hair is synonymous with your style, image and self confidence; therefore, it has always been a struggle for me to find someone who I trust fully to cut and style my hair. However, in 2015, I met Frik van Straten from Carlton Hair in Lonehill and I can honestly say that I will never get my hair cut or styled by anyone else. Frik is not only professional, highly skilled and exceptional at his job, but because of the person he is, I am blessed to consider him a friend. Frik and the team at Carlton Hair Lonehill make you feel at home and relaxed and I always leave with a smile on my face and a feeling of joy!
