Right Over The Top is a family business providing style for over 30 years, established in 1986 using skills developed in the  prestigious Mayfair salon that was Lenoards on Upper Grosvenor street.

The business was first started when Andrew and Rachel moved to Dorset, since then their two children have followed in their footsteps.

Both Harriet and Josh also trained in Mayfair, bringing the opportunities of working with high profile client lists. Since then they have both provided styling for top magazine shoots, the BAFTAS and the Royal family.

Whilst being in Shaftesbury Harriet and Josh have also worked at Glastonbury where they had their own salon for people needing that much needed hair attention.

Right over the top was voted in Tatler as “One of the best local hair salons” and “Number one best salon”in Country Calling.
We can provide you with the perfect cut, colour, style and hair advice, simply pop into our salon in Shaftesbury for a consultation or contact us via the web page to discuss your hairs needs.

Over The Top have also been featured in The Country Calling Magazine:

“You’ll be hard pushed to miss this one, with it’s raspberry-pink walls and suit of armour in the window.
And if the gossip is anything to go by, everyone goes. Not just because husband-and-wife team Andrew and Rachel are a joy (son Josh and daughter Harriet have come on board as well, after training in London with Nicky Clarke), but because the cuts are sharp, the colouring is sparky and the team is fun. Do leave time to visit the beauty salon upstairs too.”
