About Nirvana Hair, Beauty & Laser Salon

Nirvana opened it's doors in 2011 by owner & stylist Kathy Mcguane who had worked in London for 18 years then later moved to Devon, to live the dream with her family. Kathy feels she has a lot to give to the industry with over 27 years of experience in all aspects of hairdressing and having always wanted to open a salon of her own the dream had been acomplished, after 6 years and with an ever expanding, totally fabulous team Nirvana outgrew the Joy Street salon so Kathy renovated & opened a brand new, much larger premises where we moved into earlier this year, March 2017 !


Our relaxed and welcoming atmosphere is always commented on and our complimentary fresh coffee, range of teas plus a few extra treats to enjoy helping to make your visit even more enjoyable.
