Creative Profiles: Samuel Chapman Hair Salon

Samuel Chapman is the proud owner of his eponymous salon, located on the beautiful coast of Brighton & Hove.  At the age of 16, Samuel’s love of theatre propelled him into the world of hair, as it allowed him to blend his creative talents and sociable personality.

He trained with Hensmans in Northamptonshire, where he soon realised just how many opportunities a career in hair could give him. From there, Samuel moved on to work for the Trevor Sorbie Group, where he progressed to Colour Director of the Brighton salon. 

Knowing just what he had to offer to the industry, Samuel took the step to work for himself and open the Samuel Chapman Salon. Today, Samuel heads up a team of 11 at the salon, and the same love he felt for the hair industry as a trainee is what drives him today. 

The Salon

Samuel Chapman Salon was established on 2nd March 2016 and since opening the business has gone from strength to strength, including several award wins.  Samuel’s dream was always to own his own salon and now that that dream is a reality, with a salon that’s fully focused on providing clients with that pampering ‘me time’ they truly deserve.  The salon specialises in not only colour but also hair loss treatments for all clients.  Inclusivity is one of the salon’s first and most important philosophies, fair pricing is integral to this which is why they offer gender neutral pricing. Being honest and inclusive, the team pride themselves on ensuring all clients feel comfortable, relaxed and able to talk freely without fear of being judged.

The wellbeing of the team is a big priority, Samuel believes that by creating a supportive salon space where hairdressers can learn, grown and develop their own skills and expertise is paramount to the success of the salon and returning clients.

The Products

Samuel ensures that the handpicked in salon product offering is natural, ethical and of the highest standard. Having recently launched his own line, Samuel Chapman hair care, the team are all product afficionados ready and eager to share their knowledge.  Sitting alongside Kevin Murphy, Pureology and Olaplex, the Samuel Chapman hair care range includes wash, rinse and treat products as well as a detangler that promise to simplify and beautify your hair care regime.

The real boss is Winston, he is a Pug x King Charles Cavalier, he is at the salon most days, usually found guarding the front door watching the world go by or sleeping on one of our armchairs.

The Future 

Samuel is looking at ways to further increase services to help clients with all types of hair loss and the plans don’t stop there as he’s hoping to open a salon collective within the Brighton area using a freelance business model across hair, beauty & lifestyle services.

So, watch this space and remember his name, you’ll certainly be seeing a lot more of it!
