Upper38 has been one of Threebestrated Salons for over 5 years in a row; 2023 we were awarded the Southern Enterprise Award; 2022 we won Hair Salon of the Year with Corporate Livewire Prestige Awwards.
We don’t believe “one style fits all” so we take the time to LISTEN to you, and then work with you to tailor the right look. Attention to detail is key to our team – we know the importance of the right grade of fade, that your highlights go right to the root, that when you say take an inch off, you mean an inch. But don’t take our word for it, check out what our clients say on our Facebook page.
Hi, I’m Pauline, Manager and Owner of Upper 38.
A key part of my role is to ensure that all our staff work with each client to understand exactly what they want, and then deliver exactly that at affordable prices. Having recently moved to our newly refurbished salon in January 2022, we had an opportunity to create a cool and contemporary environment (check out our lie-down backwash units) whilst retaining our friendly and relaxed approach.
We look forward to welcoming you to our new Mutley Plain salon.
Hi – my name is Lewis and, I have been working at Upper 38 for over 8 years. I love chatting to clients, and work hard to excel in all areas of barbering including skinfades and wet shaves, and love working with kids or adults alike. I am also a professional songwriter and musician, check out my band Hayward on instagram.
Hi – my name is Lewis and I have been working at Upper 38 since early 2021. Although I cover all areas of ladies hairdressing, I guess my favourite is fashion colours and exotic balayages.
Hi – my name is Eda (short for Zinaida) and I am from Ukraine, having recently arrived in the UK in June 2022. I covered all areas of hairdressing and love doing colours having worked with most of the major global brands. As with UK clients, Ukrainians want the latest “cutting edge” techniques and methods, and I love delivering those requirements. I love Plymouth and feel very welcomed, both in the salon and in the city.
Hi – I am Gemma and I have worked as a beautician for over 10 years, not only at Upper38 but also in Cyprus. I am also a qualified Beauty Trainer. I offer all areas of beauty including acrylic nails, lash extensions and lashlifts, and waxing. I have a very lively 2 year old, so spare time is really only a concept to me!
Hi – along with Pauline, I run the reception area and salon generally. It’s a busy position but I very much enjoy the multi-tasking element of my job, and interaction with clients and staff alike.
