Stuart Holmes

Stuart worked in London for a number of years cutting and styling the hair of Oscar, Bafta and Brit awarded celebrities. His career has also been spent working on videos, editorial shoots, commissions for model agencies and image consultancy for major record labels. In 2003 Stuart, together with his wife Sara, launched the Stuart Holmes Salon – one of Cheltenham’s most glamorous pampering destinations! Stuart has created a salon that has the feel of being in a chic boutique hotel right in the heart of Regency Cheltenham. Designed with every client’s needs in mind from first class service to the highest levels of training and expertise.

The Stuart Holmes Salon has the reputation for award winning hair, based not only on Stuart’s past experience and personal success, but also on his team of extremely talented hair stylists, technicians and specialists. Stuart has the unique ability to make each and every client feel special and his work on the salon floor makes him one of the areas most sought-after stylists.

"Dear Stuart

Thank you so much for fitting me in for an appointment with you. I had such a wonderful time at the salon. All the staff were lovely to me and I felt really special. My haircut was amazing and I have never had so many people comment on my hair before saying how great it looks and how much it suits me and that I look younger! Thank you so much. I will visit again. Your salon is fantastic and you deserve the reputation that you have attained".


"Hi Stuart

Just wanted to say thanks for my great 'shorter, choppy style' you did for me this evening. You always 'get me' many thanks - such a great salon - I do my best to 'fly the flag'! xxx"


"There aren't many places I would travel 3 hours for and stay just 2, but Stuart and his team are an exception. From the moment I step in and have my coat taken and my coffee ordered I feel better and more positive. My hair is always washed by somebody different but compliments to all. My 45 minutes with Stuart are always a highlight and a very amusing part of my day. My hair is always cut immaculately and I happily swish out! Thank you for always making my experience an utterly fabulous one!"

Sara – PR & Marketing

Sara – PR & Marketing

Sara has a reputation for enjoying a challenge! Working alongside her husband, combining their strengths and ambitions for the Stuart Holmes Salon, certainly gives her that! Sara began her career in sales and marketing within the five star luxury hotel market and spent a number of years working for the exclusive Savoy Group of Hotels in London. Sales and marketing along with business development became her focus and she used her skills in a variety of luxury independent hotels. Sara relates this as being similar to the hairdressing industry as it’s the clients that are always the key.

Before finally joining forces with Stuart, Sara was working for the Virgin Corporation for the Incentive & Motivation Division – this was a really exciting career opportunity riding on the Virgin Empire rollercoaster giving her an insight into every aspect of business development! Sara has brought her ‘hotel influence’ to the salon by having a reception room for guests to ‘check in and out’ and a relaxing lounge to drink champagne or cappuccinos whilst reading the daily newspaper or a magazine! She is scrupulous about attention to detail and is able to look at the salon from a client’s perspective.
