Corporate Livewire has awarded us the prestigious Hair Salon of the Year 2021-22 (South West) and Upper38 has been one of Threebestrated Salons for over 4 years in a row. We were also listed as one of the Top Ten Devon Hairdressers/Barbers (SouthwestNews.co.uk August July 2020).
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, or on google, or have a look at our gallery
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.

Having previously worked at the prestigious HAC in Kingsbridge, I joined Upper 38 afterlockdown in 2021, and haven't looked back.
