About Avenues Hair Designs

Avenues salon was established in November 2004 by Pam Whiddon. The salon has traded as a hairdressers since the Sixties and Mrs Whiddon qualified as a stylist after training at Suffolk College Ipswich in 1978. So there is a long hairdressing tradition at Avenues.
Pam won the Wella Golden Scissors Award on leaving college, and enjoys competition and show work. This is one area she encourages her young team to take part in. Our stylists are committed to training and personal development to bring you the very best Avenues experience - we don't just follow the trends, we set them.
We at Avenues enjoy all aspects of hairdressing - we pride ourselves on our Colour and Perm expertise. The salon is air-conditioned for your comfort and continually being updated. Afro hair services are available and Great Lengths hair extensions are now offered by Imogen at Avenues Hair Salon.
We're doing our bit to save the planet by going as as natural as we can. Everything that can be is recycled, our gloves are re-usable, our appliances are energy efficient and we're always on the look out for alternatives to plastic.
Pam would like to thank all Avenues clients for their support and encouragement.

    I had my first hair cut here today, (haven’t had my hair cut in almost a year) and I am absolutely over the moon with the results Trilby really took her time to understand what I wanted and made sure that it was prefect before I left! She was also able to help me work out the best shampoos for my hair that can be bought in high street stores! I am so happy and will 100% be returning.

    Been coming to have my hair cut/coloured for almost 3 years, Imogen does my hair and have never been disappointed, friendly, lovely staff, wouldn't want to go anywhere else and would recommend 5 stars
  • Sue, 4 July 2018
    I’ve been coming to Avenues for a few years now for a colour and cut with Imogen. I did have really short hair and had wanted to grow it but without success with other hairdressers. Imogen got me through ‘the difficult stage’ which I prefer to call the ‘had enough, cut it all off stage’ and within no time I had the length I wanted and I am so pleased. If I can’t rebook with Imogen, Steph is also great with my cut and colour. Would highly recommend.
  • Sandra, 13 March 2018

Not only did my hair look amazing (all of my friends commented) but the time and care taken by the team to make me look great was just amazing. The price was staggeringly reasonable too and my hair stayed in place all night. Thank you team, i’ll Be back!

    They are very polite and welcoming and if you have any issue regarding your hair, they promptly advise you what is best!!
    They are a true and honest hair salon and you don't get ripped off by these high named salons... Their work is well done and will always do their best to meet your needs, in what you want!
    Pam, and her team are all qualified and know their knowledge.

    A salon where they are as friendly as they are professional, what else could you ask for? As a professional magician I need to look smart as well as modern and they've helped me do this over the past 7 years. Great job guys.

    Had my hair coloured and cut here for a few years .Steph has always given me great advice on cuts and colour.The team give great advice on aftercare which puts your hair in great condition . Would recommend everyone give this salon a try.
  • Vanessa, 2nd December 2015
    I have had my hair cut and coloured here for a few years now and my hair looks the best it has ever been. They give honest and good advice and suggestions I would not go anywhere else, we are looking at moving over an hours drive away and I would still travel this distance to get my hair done. My children also get their hair cut here and they are up to date with what children are allowed in the schools and the latest styles. I highly recommend them.
