Greg James

Creative Director

Greg James is at the creative helm of the salon overseeing a team of highly skilled stylists and natural hair colour specialists. Greg knew that hairdressing was his vocation from an early age and has been fortunate to have never needed to deviate from his path. He began his career at Vidal Sassoon in 1999 and quickly progressed through increasingly senior positions at several leading salons before becoming Creative Director of Aveda salon, Kamigata. Here he developed his understanding of the benefits of organic products. Greg is now delighted to be leading his own team at Goji and, as well as providing the full range of colour and cuts, he is also our Great Lengths and hair up specialist. He loves to be inventive so if you’re not sure what you want, just put yourself in his capable hands!

Thanks so much to Greg and the team, excellent service from start to finish and I absolutely love my hair!” Lori

Greg has to be one of the best hairdressers around. I have never been so committed to a hair salon until Greg opened his. They are super friendly and welcoming everytime. I have never left the salon unhappy. Very happy customer.” Amy

Vicky Griffin

Managing Director

Greg’s partner-in-crime looks after the business side of Goji and has customer service as her number 1 priority.

What a lovely calming atmosphere. Staff are friendly & polite. Very happy with hair x”  Katherine

I had such a good first experience with Goji. Vicky dealt superbly with me changing my appointment several times and I couldn’t be more pleased with the colour Greg gave me – not an easy job with my thick and previously dry and uneven colour. Chloe finished and styled my hair perfectly and everyone else in the salon was friendly too. I will definitely be returning, many thanks Goji team!” Ellie

Perfect little salon. So accommodating. Great staff, private to public.First hairdresser I have found in over 10 years that hasn’t chopped my hair off, or left it without a curl. Sophie thanks!
