About Us

Hair by Elise was established in 2012 by Elise Grindrod, working with long-time colleague and friend Sophie.

We work together as equals to make our clients feel welcomed and truly pampered.

We provide a range of drinks including speciality coffees, red and white wine, so you can sit back and feel completely at home as we get to work revitalising your look.

Your haircare experience with us is designed to be calming and destressing, with absolutely no rushing – we want you to unwind and enjoy the experience.

Located in the heart of the beautiful Ribble Valley town of Clitheroe, Hair by Elise’s contemporary rustic-chic décor is a refreshingly warm antidote to the harsh industrial design of many hair salons – we believe cutting edge haircare can be delivered to world class standards in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
