Really lovely salon and staff, was recommended by my daughter who’s hair always looks fab since she moved salons to Harpers – cannot recommend highly enough.


A terrific (much needed) experience, professional, engaging, 121 orientated and left feeling like I’d been pampered. All in a clean, spacious and welcoming environment. The best hair salon in Belper.


The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and professional. Always happy to discuss what you want from your hair experience and offer advice. Love this salon!


I always feel at ease and comfortable at Harpers they are fabulous xx


The salon had a friendly, safe and relaxing feel about it. I felt great after having my hair cut and coloured by Emma.


Not a regular salon goer previously, but.. having plucked up the courage to visit one im so pleased I did, the place is lovely and welcoming along side stylish and the staff are very friendly and easy to talk to. My stylist Maria Austin is amazingly talented, very professional but also very down to earth and friendly. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and would genuinely recommend.


Have been Emma’s client for 24 years and Harper’s 19./29 years Always a great service . Pays attention to detail and listens to what you want and need for your hair. 5 ⭐️


Have been getting my hair cut at Harpers for many years. Always received an excellent service, very happy to recommend.


Always use Harper’s very efficient and lovely staff.


Emmy made me feel so very welcome due to the current circumstances. I felt at ease and safe the whole way through. She does exactly what I want with my hair without me even having to say. Her professionalism and manner is a credit to Harpers. I only come to Harper’s purely for Emmys work and service. Thank you Emmy. Forever a happy customer. Xx


Excellent professional and friendly service from Morgan who cut my hair. The salon has gone over and above to make you feel safe in the current environment. great to have Harpers in Belper. 10/10


Have been using this salon for 17 years and have always had friendly, professional service. Can’t recommend them highly enough.

After a disastrous post-lockdown cut at another salon, I booked an appointment with Louise. Had my messy hair cut today and I LOVE it! 😊 Louise really listened to what I wanted and did a great cut. It’s always a bit nerve wracking going to a new salon, but I don’t regret changing. Thank you!

Have literally never written a review for anywhere or anything in my life! However after my appointment with the wonderful Emmy tonight just felt compelled to write to say a huge well done to the team and the salon . The work that has gone into making the salon safe and the procedures in place at such a testing time are excellent . The salon is beautiful and the whole experience is fantastic. After moving away from home and the same hairdresser for 25 years I was admittedly worried about finding a new salon. Harper’s has fulfilled all my expectations and more! Well done Harpers and thank you Emmy 💁‍♀️

Jess Spencer
Absolutely amazing experience at Harper’s today. A Mother’s Day treat from my daughter, and made to feel so special by Emma and the amazing team but especially Maria, Louise and Cat. I’m at this salon every 4 weeks and they can never do enough for me. How can hairdressers be your friends?? Love you all xxxxxxx

Tejal Odedra
Today was my first time at Harpers and as a whole everything was perfect. The staff are very friendly and the salon is very well presented. I had my hair cut with Emmy and she was amazing. We had a quick consultation where she advised me on what would suit me and cut my hair exactly how i wanted it. 5 stars, couldn’t fault anything.
Always been happy with my hair here.
Shelley Smith
Excellent Salon. Always so pleased with the service. Staff are always friendly and dress smart.
Karen Clarke
I love Harpers! I have been a client of Emma Wood’s for the last 15 years and prior to her opening the salon in Belper. Harpers is a fantastic salon with friendly, professional staff and a wonderful in-house training programme that produces talented young stylists. I wouldn’t go anywhere else and would highly recommend you try their services for yourself.
Rachel Heard
Just the best Salon in Derbyshire! Each time I visit, nothing is too much trouble for anybody – the whole team seek to deliver a fabulous experience with that personal touch you’d expect from such talent! I trust Emma completely!

Rashell Beya
The attention to detail never fails to amaze me. Not just a fabulous haircut but a wonderful experience.

Myself, my mum and my 2 teenage daughters have all had haircuts in the last 10 days at Harpers in Belper and we are all delighted with the result! Many thanks.


I have followed Emma’s (the salon business owner) since she was 17 .. she had magical hands then and she still does ! The friendliness of her staff shows that she appreciates and respects them as they do her. This flows into the customer service and ambience of the salon.


Always first class service.


I always look forward to seeing Harriet and this time she’s made me feel ten years younger! What a difference after lockdown x


I only come to Harpers for Emmy, her work is unreal, she knows just what I want without me even knowing what I want. I never leave unhappy. Her service is amazing and I’ll never go without seeing her. Thanks Emmy.


Good service as always. Value Emies professional advice regarding change in hair colour 🤗


Fantastic, as always. So good to be back. Beautiful salon with exceptional staff.


I’ve visited the salon twice since lockdown was lifted and each time felt safe with the infection control procedures they have in place. I always receive a friendly welcome. All appointments start with a review on how manageable your hair’s been since the last appointment and asked about any concerns you may have, which I find helpful. Thankyou Emma for a great hair cut and colour. Till next time KEEP SAFE.


Emmy is fabulous. She is knowledgeable and is happy to do whatever you need.


Always assured of a warm welcome and a professional service. Advice on style and hair care is excellent and the cutting and colouring is superb.. I have been coming to Emma at Harpers for my hair or 17 years and she has always discussed what I want and then created a style to suit my face and lifestyle at the time; she always takes time to develop ideas with me whether my hair has been short, long or bobbed. Can’t praise her and the team enough!


Maria’s done a fab job with my extensions would definitely recommend Thanks so much.


Maria is brilliant, professional and amazing at her job!

Charlotte Reilly
Thanks so much Morgan for reviving my lockdown locks 👌 I couldn’t be happier! I’d totally recommend Harpers to anyone still feeling anxious about venturing out after lockdown – it’s clear from the moment you step into the salon that so much time and attention has been put into making it a safe haven to be pampered. Thank you.
Holly Bolsover
Amazing service today from Maria , Cracking transformation of my hair and and all staff made me feel very safe and welcome , would highly recommend booking in!
Helen Cruise
Lovely friendly staff pleasure to go here Harriett has been doing my hair now for about 3-4 years and makes a fantastic job every time wouldn’t go anywhere else now.
Chelsea Hawksley-Blackburn
Emmy has done my hair for the past 2 years now and has done the best job every time! The colour and cut is always amazing and just what I want. I also have beauty works extensions with Emmy and there the best I’ve ever had. Always put in perfect and cut so natural. Thank you xx

So, I’ve just visited Harper’s salon for the first time. I picked it because after 5 years of living in Belper, and trying many salons in Derby I thought I’d give Belper a go. Most will know, Belper is inundated with hairdressers!!!…..but I picked Harper’s based on the reviews I read. I booked in with Emmy. I now have the best haircut since my old salon Trevor Sorbie in Manchester! For 5 years I’ve tried loads of hairdressers (overpriced Derby ones) and NONE have left me with a hairstyle that I’m super happy with. Thankyou Emmy. You have cut my long hair perfectly. My layers blend beautifully and I haven’t needed to touch or faff with it at home at all. I’m so pleased I tried Harpers, I think I’ve finally found my salon!
Jess Spencer
Best hair salon ever. So professional, high end but yet make you feel comfortable. Lovely staff and fabulous results.
Alexandra van Heeswijk
Second time I’ve been and had Emmy, she cuts my hair perfectly. I don’t very often do anything with my hair unless I’m out for a meal so its brill to have such a good haircut that actually falls into place without any effort. And when I do style my hair its best its been for years. I love my hair to look natural and have lots of movement. I’m not very talkative either so love that Emmy gets I like to sit in silence and relax. Thanks Emmy, I’ve been looking for a good hair dresser for ages.
Maureen Gillett
Had a really good cut on my very awkward curly hair.
Sallyann Bacon
This is a great hairdresses. I always have Emmy, brilliant stylist and a good price too. Recommended!
Kaley Needham
I’ve been going to Louise at Harpers for nearly a year now, and have stayed with her throughout her training. I’ve always found the salon to be welcoming, friendly, and very professional. Louise has taken me from dark to blonde, and long to short, and always done a great job. There has been a consultation at the start of every appointment to discuss what I’m looking to achieve, and then always expertly followed through.
Rhalina Kershaw
This really is the very best hair salon that I have ever used! Emma has been my hair dresser for so many years and she has always offered a very professional service. If you are looking for somewhere new to try then this salon is a definite.
Paige Hodgkinson
My first experience was a FREE fringe cut after my previous hairdresser had made a bodge job! After saving me from a tragic hair cut I thought I would try them for my usual long hair trim and full head of blonde highlights. I went with Harriet and have been with her ever since – she is fantastic! Great cut and colour every time and always pleasant to chat to. I find she has the perfect chat/work balance as I find some hairdressers talk too much which makes me worry whether they’re actually concentrating on my hair! All in all every experience is brill and I would highly recommend Harriet.
Adrian Holmes
Great atmosphere, very friendly staff and above all great hair cut 🙂
Steph Jansen
I am a regular at Harpers and have always been very happy with my haircuts and the service the staff give. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Harpers 🙂

It is so lovely to be back at Harpers with the friendly welcome from Emma and the gang. All the Covid adjustments are top notch whilst still keeping the great atmosphere.


Fantastic work on my hair, thank you.


Harper’s is a fabulous salon. Friendly team, buzzing atmosphere and smooth operation. Highly recommended.


Excellent safe and friendly service as always, thank you for making my hair look and feel great again xxx


Impeccable service as always by Maria.


I’ve only visited Harper’s for the last year and generally see Chloe. I can honestly say that I’ve never had any particular loyalty to specific salons previously due having very long hair that just required a cut and blow dry. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now though, my hair is shorter and Chloe gets it spot on, every time! The cut is always as such that I can manage it easily on a daily basis without getting stressed. Other staff at salon are equally as friendly and as a business, they have risen to challenges that Covid has presented them with.


As always an excellent cut and colour, staff always pleasant and professional, I would have no hesitation in recommending the salon to anyone.


Harpers is a professional, friendly salon. I am always very happy with the service I receive. I would recommend it highly.


Love Harpers, Emmy literally knows me better than I know myself when it comes to my hair. Always recommend her to friends and family 🙂


I have been going to Harpers for about 8 years, it is a superb salon. Emma is constantly thinking of ways to keep the salon up to date, it is always spotlessly clean and welcoming. Staff training is taken very seriously and standards and expectations are always high. Currently, Covid precautions are in place and it feels very safe. I can’t sing its praises highly enough.


Always a pleasure to visit Harper’s! 😘 friendly staff who remember you ! Keep up the fantastic work ethic at these worrying times as you made me feel safe xx thank you 😊

Karen Scargill
Thank you so much to Louise for my post lockdown cut and colour. Absolutely delighted. Everything about the salon is first class and everyone is really chatty, kind and professional. Products smell great and my hair has improved in its texture and health since I started having my hair done at the salon just under a year ago. Louise is excellent and takes so much care in making sure everything she does is explained. Great experience. Thank you.
Holly Hayley
Great experience with one of the apprentices at the salon. Appointment was long as she was still learning, but a great set up and lovely environment and can’t complain when it is free. Will definitely be back!
Beth Wilkinson
I had my beauty works extensions fitted yesterday with Maria and I am so happy with them, she went above and beyond for what I wanted and they look amazing, so neat and do not feel heavy on my head which I was worried about!! I would recommend Maria 100x over! Thank you.
Jen Dymond
The moment you step into the salon you can sense a professional atmosphere. The staff are very attentive & friendly. The whole time you’re there you’re made to feel special as you’re treated very well. Would recommend them to anyone.
Sarah Merdaoui
Brilliant new style that gave me the pick me up I needed 😁
Naomi Jade Fowler
Always pleased with my hair by Emma! Friendly team and always made to feel welcome!
Morwenna Whawell
So good to be back and have to say thoroughly impressed with the covid prevention protocols in place felt very at ease and safe in the salon. Can’t recommend Harper’s enough to anyone wanting a hair pamper. Thank you to Morgan who was my stylist today you took a lockdown hair mess and made it feel great again 🤩
Lizzie knox
Great Hairdressers. Easy to book online. Staff really friendly.
Vivienne Gwilliam
Chloe did my cut & colour today. My 3rd time with the salon. So pleased with my visit today. So lovely is Chloe & talented & such a friendly salon.
Joanne Morris
Emma has been my hair stylist since 1992. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my ‘life of it’s own’ hair and I always get an A1 service from the salon, be that Emma or any of her staff. I’ve also recommended friends and family to go and try them out, some of which did. I started taking a 1 year old for a free trim 12 years ago and she also still goes and loves her stylist. I would advise anyone to give Harpers a try-you won’t be disappointed.
Natalia Kierakowicz
Harper is great salon with fantastic hairdressers. They all are nice, friendly, helpful and what is the most important – really professional. They make sure each customer is satisfied during the visit and after it. I recommend it to anyone without hesitation.
Lindsey Henning

It always excellent at Harper’s, from making an appointment through to the finished look. Treated as an individual with politeness respect and courtesy. It has a relaxing friendly atmosphere always a good experience.
Micheala Kirkman
Hapers is a FAB-U-LOUS salon, I think its the best in Belper! I have been going since it first opened and I would not go anywhere else. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. Very professional services offered and to a high standard. I would recommend Harpers to anyone.
Ann Gibbons
A salon with a real buzz, a pleasure to visit. Well trained stylists, 1st class service, and lovely decor too. Advice on aftercare, what more could anyone want!

Wonderful service – love the deep hair massage and massage chair whilst being shampooed.
