The History... A Step Ahead 2 was opened in August 1999 by Art Director, and owner, Georgia. Prior to this Georgia had been based in Bridport in Dorset, where along with a fellow stylist she opened a salon, A Step Ahead. The salon soon became a huge success and was very busy. 1998 found Georgia leaving the salon and relocating to Wallingford. After a short time working for a salon in Henley, Georgia was ready to open her own salon again and A Step Ahead 2 was born.


We use a wide range of products in the salon and where possible we choose organic products and products that are kind to the environment. The products we use in the salon to care for your hair are the same products that we sell in the salon so that you can continue to care for your hair in the same way at home.

If you are planning your wedding, why not let the team at A Step Ahead take away some of the stress.

Before the day of the wedding we will need to do a trial run for the bride. We will also do a trial for the bridesmaids where necessary. At the trial we suggest that you have all the things you are going to have in your hair, for example, veil, headdress, flowers etc. as this makes a big difference to the over all look and the end result. We can only get the right look with the right components.

We can come out to your home, availability permitting, provided we receive adequate notice. If your wedding is on a Sunday we will be happy to cater for this, availability permitting.

We have packages starting from £ 145 but we don't list them here as we find that every brides requirements are unique. We can include Brides Trial, wash, treatment and blow-dry the day before, the hair on the day, bridesmaids...

Please feel free to come in to the salon and chat to us about anything or alternatively give us a call on 01491 83 23 23
