Who We Are
Promising Excellence in Everything We Do
Founded in 2006 V12 Hair Topiary is our new and exciting name for the formerly known V12 Hair Boutique. Whilst moving with the times and launching Curl Topiary it was the right time to rebrand the salon. V12 has always been my dream and my dream is now a very well established reality, with the topiary playing a huge part in all hair types, not just the curly haired people out there.
Working with the girls is like being surrounded by my best friends and family and you will see that when you step foot in the salon. Being self employed doesn't take away from the team work in the salon.
The salon has been in the family for over 40 years now, previously Gilly's (Vikki's mum). Once Gill's baby just like it is mine today. Gill still pops by to say hello.

For strong waves and curly hair.
Curl Topiary- we are proud to be the home of Curl Topiary. This is a technique used to cut naturally curly hair. The curls are cut dry and individually to create a bespoke shape to your hair. No combing or brushing.
We support the Curly girl method but are not associated with the method. If you follow the method we are happy to use CG method approved products. If you have your own favourite products we are happy for you to bring them to your appointment. Curl Topiary is V12’s method of cutting curls.
Please allow up to 2 and a half hours for your appointment. Your hair should be clean and fully dry with minimum products in the hair as we need to see your curls in their natural state. No bobbles, clips or bands should be in the hair as this will cause the curls to take a false shape.
This technique is designed for wavy to curly hair, if we feel your hair isn’t wavy or curly enough for curl topiary we can offer a tension free haircut. This is done by using a wide tooth comb and a combination of curl topiary and traditional cutting methods to ensure the best results for you to manage your hair at home.
"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence."
