Who are Europa Hair ?

Europa Hair was established in 1979, over 43 years of shear commitment has led us to where we are today. That commitment drives us to make you look and feel fantastic. The founder of Europa Hair, Vince Sereno recently retired handing over the reigns to his 2 daughters Olivia, and Sophie. With the help of their amazing team, they have carried on the expertise and commitment to the hairdressing industry that Vince had previously instilled.

Here at Europa Hair, we specialise in Hair Extensions and colouring. We have created our own brand of Hair Extensions called Rapid Lengths. This is a hair extension system that was invented by our own stylists at Europa, and has been demonstrated by us at some of the biggest professional exhibitions in the world. As you can tell by the name of the brand Rapid Lengths, you can be in and out of the salon within one hour with gorgeous long hair that will last you at least 3 months.
