Andrew Barton

Creative Director

Despite the glamour and excitement of working at fashion shows or creating a front cover look for a glossy magazine, my passion is working in the salon with an incredible team and making clients look and feel their best.

I have been in the hair industry for over 25 years working closely with my clients to create beautiful hair. Throughout my career I have established my name working with global magazines, stylists and celebrities alike. I am best known for my hair transformations on the hit makeover show ’10 Years Younger’, and I have won some top industry awards including British Hairdresser of the Year and the Ultimate Hair Icon. Although I work with some of the UK’s biggest stars and have been lucky enough to create catwalk looks for many prestigious fashion labels, my true passion is transforming the hair of ‘real’ people. I love creating beautiful, wearable styles rather than conceptual looks. Joining the Urban Retreat team as Creative Director was a natural step for me. Front cover lustrous hair with vitality is my trademark and working with the team to showcase that is an honour.
