about the group

Welcome to Robin James. The towns of Dorchester, Poole and Sherborne are home to our premier hair salons, and luxury spas.

Established in 1989 we continue to stay true to our mission to deliver the finest cutting, colouring, styling and spa treatments in Dorset. Each appointment for hair or body is individually customised for you by highly trained Aveda stylists and holistic therapists, carried out with pride and determination to exceed your expectations.

Our clients mean the world to us which is why Robin chose Aveda for our salons and spas. Aveda means ‘all-knowledge’ in Sanskrit, and its roots and inspiration are in Ayurveda, the ancient Indian healing art. We love its holistic approach to life and wellness, and we know you’ll love it too.

Aveda is cruelty free and at least 92% naturally derived from plants, non-petroleum minerals or water. But at Robin James our commitment to the planet goes far deeper than offering sustainable botanically based products. All Aveda products are manufactured using 100% wind power, most are vegan (including our hair colour) and where possible ingredients are certified organic.

Loved and recommended by so many hair and beauty guests, Robin James has been the ‘go to’ Aveda Salon across Dorset for over 20 years. Our motto is ‘We only look good if you do’. Our superstar team of stylists and therapists are all hand-picked, Aveda trained and bring an exceptional level of skill and professionalism to our guests.
