Great place to work

A fun, challenging and exciting salon to work in. I love working with my colleagues & amazing generous clients. I am passionate about my role and the company provides a lot of opportunities to be promoted to next levels of stylists. The atmosphere in the salon has changed dramatically in the past couple of years, it is now a happy & fun environment. We have been supported well through the pandemic by the new owners who took over recently.


Big discounts on hair/spa treatments & products


The salon is always busy

A positive work environment

Employees are hugely valued by the company Directors & Managers. The staff in Sherborne are very much a team and care about each other and strive to make the salon a fun and vibrant place to work. There is a very positive and happy feel to the working environment. My colleagues often express how much they love to work at the Salon.

Coming to work is a joy

Our job as hairdressers is challenging but the satisfaction outways that in spades. I’ve been promoted twice in 2 years and now going to be able to buy a flat. Yippeee

Love my job

Working here for the past 3.5 years has been a joy. We have had some odd staff members come and go but the ones who have stayed are amazing to work with. I love coming to work and class all my colleagues as friends. Here’s to many more years of working for robin.

Awful place to work.

Working here was awful.. it's such a badly run business.. it's so nasty and I was so glad when I left.. Don't know how he gets away with treating people like it.

To have had 30 successful years whilst running the business so badly, as our ‘anoymous’ reviwer states is quite incredible! Equally for there to be numerous members of the team who have been with us for more than 10 years and some for 20 years is also remarkable if you consider the review here.We have had in place for sometime now, a consistent front of house reception team who are very professional and highly regarded by their fellow team members, the salon guests and me. Our very high standards are not for everyone and our success is partly attributed to making sure that these standards are upheld always. I can only imagine our reviewer was not able to deliver on this. Robin


I was at Robin James for 6 months as an apprentice during my level 3 training as a beauty therapist. This experience was very challenging but also a great way to learn what the real world was really about. I got taught things I never knew was existant.




Long hours

Great place to work

Everyday is a creative one. The standards are high which is not for everyone because the clients expectations are high. However if you like to be challenged and work in an environment which has structure and purpose its great

Busy, nice & big

Very busy salon with the spa aswell. Big team of people which isn't always a good thing, lots of different characters and certain people are favourites! Pay wasn't very good in comparison to others.


Spa treatments


Have to pay for drinks & hair!!
