Please press play on the video below for a quick introduction of                  The Floating Salon.

The Floating Salon is a fully functioning hair, beauty and holistic salon based onboard my beautiful boat Blackjack. Blackjack is a wide beam canal boat. At 12ft wide, almost twice the width of an average canal boat she is extremely sturdy and does not rock or bounce when you walk around her.

 My name is Nicola and  I have been hairdressing for over 15 years, two of which were spent working in London's West End salons. For four years I ran my own freelance business where I travelled to clients houses. I am fully qualified and insured and I am a member of the Freelance Hair and Beauty Federation.   

In July 2013 The Floating Salon was granted a permanent mooring on the Kennet and Avon canal at Bradford on Avon. I have since expanded into beauty and holistic therapies. Please see Beauty and Holistic

The Floating Salon was chosen to take part in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Thames Flotilla in June 2012. We were one of only 40 canal boats throughout the country to be selected. Book an appointment today and say you have been on board one of the chosen few!!
See my Gallery page for photographs of the Jubilee from our view on the Thames.
