Laurel at Crackers and Chaps



Crackers & Chaps has been providing hair design and colour to our clients in the market town of Diss for almost 20 years. During this time our team has grown and the salon has expanded to include a first floor extended hair salon and a beauty treatment room.

Every one of our team completed their apprenticeship here, so we know each other incredibly well and have a fab friendly salon which we hope you enjoy coming to. We are constantly learning new techniques with ongoing training which keeps us evolving and fires our passionate for our work. We feel the key to our success is the motivation we all have towards hairdressing and love to bounce off each other and share fresh ideas.

To be the best you can you need to live and breathe hairdressing.  We believe we do just that and make the salon a welcoming environment for clients to pop in for a coffee, chat, fringe trim, consultation, product advice or any other excuse!

Many of our clients have been coming to our salon since we started which we hope speaks for itself.

We look forward to welcoming you to our salon soon.
