Welcome to Hairspace Kensington

Hairspace is an independent hair salon personally run by leading hairdresser Toby Botha.

“Put yourself in expert hands. Edgy cuts, classic styling or red hot, cool colours – we’ll ensure you walk out with style.”


What our clients say…

Toby has to be one of the best hairdressers I have been to here in London. It took a while to find him after the hairdressers I had been to before moved out of the country I was left in a bind as it is hard to find a good hairdresser these days. I have no hesitation in recommending him to people. He takes his time, is very friendly and makes you feel at ease. I fully trust him and thus I look forward to having my hair looked after! Thanks Toby! The girls that work with him are also very friendly and welcoming that makes it a nice atmosphere 🙂

It is with much pleasure that I express my association as a client with HAIRSPACE in the warmest terms. One enters the salon and feels at home at once, all smiles around, welcoming words and you know this is not a PR staged show but a genuine welcome straight from the heart. I have been having my hair done for years and have seen staff leaving and new ones coming but that warmth and special atmosphere remained at the centre  of the place. As you enter a new phase of development, all I can wish you is “just carry on being yourself and faithful to your  tradition” that will continue to make your clients happy coming in and out! Congratulations!

A la Toby! The salon has been refurbished and it looks lovely! And I cannot stress enough how glad I am that this place was recommended by an acquaintance of mine and I have no hesitation in recommending Toby to everyone! He really can make hair look healthy and stylish! He is very pleasant to chat to as well. The girls in the salon are always very friendly and smiley as well so the whole experience is wonderful and you come out feeling like a completely new person! I am very pleased and hope that Toby will look after my hair till I’m old and grey (but obviously won’t look it haha!) Merci beaucoup!!

I have been having my hair looked after by this wonderful salon for as long as I can remember. The salon is always immaculate, everyone who works there is kind, friendly and fun, and above all they are all highly professional hairdressers both in cutting and styling as well as treating and colouring.  HAIRSPACE salon has been looking after my hair for the past ten years and apart from being the best hairdressers I have ever been to, they consistently transform my hair for the better every time I see  them. I cannot recommend all the hairdressers in this salon more highly.

I’ve been having my highlights done at HAIRSPACE for many years and unlike some other salons, it’s always a pleasure to go there and spend  a couple of hours chatting to the team.  They always do my highlights beautifully and I would highly recommend them.

As one happy client, I have been visiting this salon for the past five years now.  It is a civilised experience, and very calming.  They are willing to offer suggestions as to the various treatments or cuts that may suit, but are equally happy to cut to a lifetime’s style.  Over the many years Toby and his team have been in Kensington  they have built up a wide variety of clients reflecting  their ability, not only in hairdressing or running a salon, but also in character and communication. I certainly wish them every success with HAIRSPACE and I am sure it will be equally successful.

I have been having my hair cut and coloured by HAIRSPACE for 7 years, and I wouldn’t go anywhere else: I  trust their colouring completely and  they have a gift for cutting my hair so that the style stays intact for  weeks afterward, even when my hair is growing quickly over the summer months. I regularly recommend HAIRSPACE to my friends: the  standards are incredibly high, the salon is peaceful and relaxing, and Toby and the team are always fun and welcoming.

In my job it is extremely important to look presentable all the time. I have had several hairdressers in the past, but HAIRSPACE has been in a completely different league. Hairspace has been my “go-to” hairdresser now for the past 4 years. I know that every time I see them I have a great experience from the time I walk in the door to the time I walk out. The staff are warm, friendly and the quality of haircut and wash I receive is the best in Kensington. I would highly recommend Hairspace to anyone who wants to find hairdressers who are reliable and will consistently deliver a personal and high quality of service.

Toby has been cutting my hair for years. A good relationship with your hairdresser is important. And that’s how I feel about getting my hair cut by Toby. He understands my hair and how I feel about it. I trust him completely.

I was a customer of this Hairdressing establishment when it was under the previous management, but tiring of the sleepy ‘comfy’ atmosphere decided to try all the local hairdressers where I had very mixed experiences of cuts, colours etc before returning once more when I heard it was under new management: and have not been anywhere else since!  Bringing with him his previous business experience of running successful salons in more  than one country combined with great personal and professional skills,  Toby, the proprietor has now turned his attention to redesigning the  premises of this well established business located in such an excellent position, to  the delight and anticipation of staff, clients and local businesses.
