FRINGE benefits is one of the oldest established hairdressing salons in the town. Originally know as Erica’s, the name of the business was changed to FRINGE benefits in 1989 by owner Jayne Smith.
In 1999 a beauty room above the salon and recently a purpose built spray tan room was added.
We have a knowledgeable and creative team of stylists at FRINGE benefits that caters for every type of client.
The salon continues to update to reflect the ever changing trends and fashions in the hair and beauty industry.
