Business partners – and sisters – Alison and Carly, opened the doors to the The Mount on 1st March 2004 with a vision for a salon that would be different to others, with quality hairdressing and luxurious customer service being a top priority for all clients.
Alison's passion was fuelled by a successful career in the hair industry that would take her from Taunton, Somerset to a celebrity salon in London's West End. A talented stylist, she has worked in many different areas of hairdressing including television and photographic work, and for salon brands Paul Mitchell and Moroccan Oil. Ali was keen to bring her experience home to the South West and realise her dream of opening her own salon.
Carly, Ali's business partner and sister has followed a different path. A non hairdresser, she has a Bsc business degree that led to a career in management where she developed the passion for customer care that is fundamental to The Mount Hair Salon.
We are very proud to work with our team of passionate people who strive to be the best at what they do. Starting with just 3 members, we have developed a great team who specialise in areas such as long hair, weddings and colour corrections, and who take the time to listen to your likes and dislikes. Many of them are home grown, having trained at The Mount.
In 2008, we opened our luxurious beauty rooms, specialising in facials, and our private wedding room available for your big day. We have worked with the wig charity My Nu Hair to aid anyone who is suffering from hair loss, and we are also members of 365 Day Hairdressing and the National Federation of Hairdressers.
In December 2018 The Mount was voted Best Independant salon in the British High Street awards for Taunton Deane.
