About us



Lotus Styling was founded in 1989 by Daren Terry.

Since its early beginning, Lotus have always had a philosophy of using the latest techniques with the best products, state of the art tools and, of course, the best staff!

Once you enter our newly revamped salon you can tell by the décor that you are somewhere special. Lotus don’t just follow fashion – they create it.

Hair at Lotus is what it’s all about, from small tidy up trims to OTT party hair and for that special day, weddings and prom hair are our speciality.

You may have seen us in the national papers or maybe on TV, but where we live and breathe is in the salon so come and join us!


I founded Lotus Styling in 1989, having worked in high profile local salons in West Sussex. As a young stylist I entered many hair competitions and was lucky enough to win a couple of national titles as well as local ones. I have demonstrated my hairdressing skills on stage at Wembley and have made numberous appearances on tv and in the local and national press. With 33 years of hairdressing experience I continue to love what I do and am passionate about the industry as well as being immensely proud of each and every member of my super talented team.
