Browns in Lewes is an independent hair salon dedicated to ensuring you have great hair, whatever your age and lifestyle.

Our approach

Browns stands for providing exceptionally high quality hair care in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We strive to exceed your expectations and make sure you leave feeling your very best. You’ll find us open and approachable and you can trust us to make your hair look its best.

Wide range of skills

Within our team of stylists and professionals, Browns has a full range of skills to cut and style hair for men and women, boys and girls, from first haircuts to some clients in their nineties. We specialise in colouring and cutting, men’s hair and barbering skills, short cuts and hairups. We have a stylist to suit every type of client.

As a L’Oréal Professionel Salon, we’re in illustrious company with some of the best known London establishments, and our staff receive regular training by L’Oréal professionals. As well as attending courses run by L’Oréal, their technicians deliver quarterly in-house training at our Lewes salon, so we’re always up to date with the latest techniques and products.

Browns is one of the top salons in East Sussex for L’Oréal Colouring and we’re extremely proud to hold the prestigious L’Oréal Colour Specialist degree. INOA is L’Oréal Professionnel’s leading no-ammonia permanent hair colour brand with Oil Delivery System (ODS2) technology, for all hair types. INOA is kinder to your hair than other colours that use ammonia, and after nine treatments it’s like you’ve never coloured your hair at all.

What to expect

On arrival, you’ll be greeted by a member of the team and be offered a seat in our comfortable reception area, where you can relax with a cup of tea or coffee, and sit down with your stylist for a consultation. This gives you the opportunity to talk about your requirements and discuss your preferred cut, style or treatment. Before we cut your hair, you’ll be treated to a relaxing hair wash and head massage at our basins, where the seat reclines and the footrest are adjustable to make sure you’re in the correct and most comfortable position.

From start to finish, the Browns experience will leave you feeling confident and fabulous.


Browns is easy to find and there’s a choice of four paid car parks nearby (or free at Tesco) so you don’t need to worry about finding a space on the street. Our salon offers free wi-fi if you need to stay connected whilst you’re with us, and we use the complete GHD styling range of equipment to ensure your hair looks its best. You also don’t need to worry about missing your appointment, because our automated reminder system sends you a text in plenty of time to make sure you don’t forget.
