Curly hair specialists.

Salon owner Dean Beavis has earned a local reputation as “King of the curls”

Based in Leigh-on-Sea in Essex, Deans love of curly hair has grown into a full blown passion.

“One of the things I love most about cutting curly hair is the reaction I get from my customers.  So many curly people are nervous to come to a salon because of bad past experiences but when they see the results that I achieve they are always so happy, often, even emotional”

Not content with his own loyal army of curly haired followers Dean has set his sights on educating the whole Gregory Dean team of stylists to become curl masters too!


“Cutting textured hair isn’t something that we learned at college, that is why, as soon  as a new stylist starts with us, curly cutting education is the first thing that they get from me”

Gregory Dean now has no less than 12 hair stylists who are fully qualified to cut and style curly hair correctly.

Gregory Teen is a select, discounted service menu for young people.

“We knew that the curly cuts had to be on the Gregory Teen menu.  So many young people grow up hating their “frizzy, unruly” hair.  What they learn from us is that it is actually curly and beautiful, they just don’t know how to handle it.  It is as much a hair cut as it is an education.  For young people this knowledge gives them the confidence to love and embrace their natural texture for ever”
