Keirl Team


I fell in love with the light airy but small and compact space at 1b exchange road, in the hope to put all my passion and interest for design and premium professional salon experience together, to create a salon that everyone feels at home in and has the best hairdressing experience which consists of a style that suits each individual's lifestyle and can create just as easy at home. Look forward to seeing you at KEIRL!


I am Leanne I have worked at Keirl since July 2016. It's a fantastic salon and I love working here, with a great team in a relaxing atmosphere. I only work two days a week at the moment but intend on doing three days from September. I have an NVQ level2 in hairdressing, along side being fully trained at Toni and Guy where I worked for eight years. After which I left to have my two children. I continued hairdressing from home because it worked well around my children but I was itching to get back to a salon! For me, the most important thing is giving someone a hair style they can activate at home so that they can have salon styled hair every day.
