Local Business Heroes - Models Hair & Beauty

A hair and beauty salon with exotic roots, keen to spread a little samba-style to Colchester, and a discount for Colchester Life cardholders - don’t say we don’t spoil you!

Models Hair & Beauty on Mersea Road is owned by Maria, a Brazilian with 30 years of hairdressing experience, much of it in her native land, who believes our growing town of Colchester was the perfect choice of location for her salon, which she opened just over a year ago.

The unisex salon offers a wide range of services, from the usual men’s and children’s crops, to intricate bridal styles and gorgeous transformations using the very popular Brazilian keratin brush treatment, which performs straightening wonders!

Along with nail art and a waxing service, Models Hair & Beauty looks to bring a little Brazilian style to hair and beauty services and Maria firmly believes that the love they pour into every client’s care pays dividends in customer satisfaction.

Maria is keen to point out that everyone is welcome at the salon – Models Hair & Beauty don’t aim for a particular type of customer and they won’t try and impose their artistic vision on clients. Whatever you would like to achieve with your hair or look, Maria will help you to get there, even if you’ve previously been put off a certain style by what she calls ‘precious professionals’.


While she admits some may see such diversity as a challenge in terms of customer expectations, for Maria and her team meeting and serving a wide range of different people means a chance to expand their skillset, listen to their customers’ stories and enjoy turning their hands to different styles.

While not plying their trade at the salon the ladies are likely to be found chowing down at the recently opened Brazilian churrascaria, or shopping in Colchester’s myriad of culturally diverse retail spaces.

And as a special treat Models Hair & Beauty are offering Colchester Life cardholders a 10% discount on full-price services over £20.
