Idlewild gives you unbridled, bewildering, beautiful hair

Idlewild Hair (formerly Philosophy Hairdressing) was born out of a desire to provide the highest quality professional hairdressing with impeccable service. Established in 2002 by business partners Mark Creed, Andrew Hall and James Harding, Idlewild has gone from strength to strength thanks to dedicated team members who are trained in-house to the brand’s exacting standards.

Staff specialise in either cutting or colouring, ensuring that they know their craft inside out and are always evolving their methods to include the latest techniques and technology. From precision cuts and long-lasting blow-dries to flawless balayage and on-trend ombré, we promise head-turning results time and time again.

Idlewild is also an official Olaplex stockist, allowing you to undergo dramatic colour changes without damage. Dubbed ‘insurance for your hair’, Olaplex actually rebuilds the bonds broken during the colouring process and can be added to your colour service from just £20. Clients also love our Kerastase Fusio Dose treatments, bespoke custom-mixed formulas applied at the backwash and combined with a relaxing head massage for incredible results with a hint of indulgence.

In addition, we’re also proud to be a L’Oreal Portfolio salon, a prestigious accolade that puts us amongst a select group of top salons recognised for their creativity and expertise. We stock the full Kerastase and TecNiArt ranges, and you’ll also find eco-friendly Aveda haircare in our Summertown salon.
