Welcome to Charles Worthington Salons
Charles Worthington Salons started life in 1987 when Charles opened his first salon in Charlotte Place, London with his sister Jane on reception and one stylist. Last year we celebrated 30 years of success with three stunning salons in the heart of London. Charles Worthington Salons has become synonymous with creative and innovative hair, earning itself an unrivalled reputation in British hairdressing, styling A-listers and collaborating with the best names in fashion and beauty.
“There are three fabulous Charles Worthington salons in London: the original airy Percy Street salon in Fitzrovia, the glam House of Charles Worthington in Covent Garden and the slick Broadgate Club in the City. Each has its own character, but all have the same high calibre of stylists and colourists.”
Every year Charles, the Creative Director, and Gorka Arraras, the Creative Manager, put their heads together to come up with a new collection of trend-setting hair looks, each one more inspired than the last. We want you to fall in love with your haircut again! We've created 13 new styles to inspire you to get excited about your cut and take the plunge to go short.
