Welcome to the only salon in the Midlands to specialise in the beautiful freehand colouring technique of Balayage. 

Our team have trained exclusively with global colour expert and balayage pioneer Jack Howard Srs, who's clients include Poppy Delevingne, Abby Clancy, Gillian Anderson and many more. Our team have brought balayage from the pages of vogue to the streets of Derbyshire. 

Headed by our founder and Creative Director Hayley Hudson, Hayley has worked in top salons in Derbyshire, enjoyed working for International Celebrity Stylist & Internet Sensation Nicky Lazou and was taught the beautiful free hand colouring technique by King of balayage Jack Howard at Nevelle Salon, Belgravia, London before inviting him to educate the whole team back at Cocco, firmly establishing us as the most experienced balayage salon in the East Midlands.

“The right hairstyle can do many things for a woman, it can boost confidence and change someone's mood.

All the time enhancing their best bits and detracting from the bits they’re not so keen on!”HH







All of our team members have been trained by globally renowned Balayage pioneer Jack Howard.


Hayley our Creative Director travelled to London & trained with him in 2014 and invited him to Cocco Salon to educate the whole team in April 2015. We are privileged that Jack has given us exclusivity for training and education in Derbyshire and we will continue to renew our knowledge and expertise as new trends evolve and bring them back to our salon, keeping our clientele at the forefront of new trends.

What is Balayage?

“Balayage and ombre highlighting techniques are designed to create a very soft natural look Balayage is a French word meaning to sweep or to paint. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair colour similar to what nature gives us as children with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. The principal idea being less is more when creating soft, natural looks. Ombre refers to the dark roots/light ends effect. This technique also produces sun-kissed, natural looking colour as if you had been on the Riviera. Both techniques can be manipulated and played with to produce the most beautifully on trend hair colour, or the softest sun-kissed look ever”  Jack Howard SRH
