The Salon

Garbo’s Hair are a family run hairdressers in Southsea, Portsmouth. Garbo’s have won many awards over the last 25 years.

At Garbo’s, our highly-trained team treat every client as an individual. We pride ourselves on our consultations and take the time to ensure that the cut and colour is right for you. The team includes a Master Colour Expert to offer specialist advice.

At Garbo’s hair, we’re using hair for the force of good. That’s why we’re taking responsibility, it’s time for a hair revolution.

We are working with Matter of Trust to help clean polluted water and divert useful fibres from the waste stream. We do this by donating the hair that usually ends up in the bin. As you can imagine, we have a lot!

The hair is sorted into stockpiles of length and then used to produce felted mats. These felted mats stack up petrochemicals in the storm drains, wells, filtration systems, rivers, oceans…

Hear how Garbo’s was created, some words from the team and our long term clients:

“Great salon, love having my hair cut here.  All staff go out of their way to look after you. You won’t be disappointed”


Extra time is allocated for all our new Clients to ensure you receive the cut and colour you want.

To plan your future look, we also offer complimentary cut and blow dry consultations as well as colour consultations in advance of your appointment.

Our Brands


A Holy Grail for in-the-know salon-goers, OLAPLEX is an innovative treatment that will transform your tresses’ fortunes. Starring a patented active ingredient that works on a molecular level, OLAPLEX formulas seek out broken bonds in the hair (which are caused by chemical, thermal and mechanical damage) and repair them, restoring compromised hair to its former glory. Nothing less than hair care royalty, it’s ideal for every mane, whether yours has ‘dyed’ a death or never been tainted by colour or tongs.

Stylist Tara says

“Olaplex has changed the way we work with hair. It’s the product we’d always dreamed of having.”

Sebastian Hair Care 

Since the beginning, Sebastian has enabled stylists and the stylish with new products, tools and techniques. Sebastian styles work in the spotlight, in the salon and on the street. Our innovations simplify, and put self-expression in your hands.

Sebastian was founded on this principle of fearlessness. A thirst for innovation and changing the game has been our raison d’être from the word go. Today is no different.

Stylist Wade says

“Sebastian products are always at the cutting edge of fashion and are amazing to work with.”


Wella have been producing colour for over 140 years, Wella has also been delivering innovations and services that enable hairdressers’ creativity. Garbo’s have been using Wella colour for over 20 years.

Natalie, our in house Wella colour expert says

“Wella Colours give the colour technicians the results they want every time.”
