Catherine Beacom (Studio Proprietor)
I have over 25 years experience in Financial Services and Management within a major high street bank. I completed an NVQ Level 2 in Hairdressing in 2007 to gain the hairdressing knowledge required to own a salon – managing a salon and jointly owning it from 2009 to 2015, when I took on the complete ownership and rebranded the existing business.
I only contract with some of the most qualified and experienced stylists in our area, and I am totally dedicated to customer service to ensure every client at the studio receives the highest levels of service and expertise. I always welcome your feedback, and if you are a stylist who is interested in working on your clients from the studio as a stylist or barber, please contact me personally via the studio.
“Feeling rather glamorous after my latest visit to Heathman Hair Studio. Apart from the fantastic hairstyling, I love the warm welcome I always recieve. I also rather enjoy the G&T! Thanks ladies.”
Thank You Ladies
“I went in with wayward hair and a load on my mind. I came out with calm silky hair and a warm feeling in my heart. Thank you Jo and Catherine.”
Five Star Salon!
“It was great going somewhere that understood what I wanted in a hair restyle - nothing was to much trouble for the stylist. The atmosphere was great calming and relaxing; everything was very clean. I was able to enjoy the time I was there. Great value for the money. I would recommend this hair studio and give it 5 stars.”
Joe has 21 years professional experience working for one of the best Five Star salons in the country, having been trained by one of the South West’s leading stylists. Attending many Sassoon and L’Oreal courses, Joe was a regional semi-finalist twice in the L’Oreal Colour Trophy, and has vast experience in stage and competition work.

“As always a wonderful experience in a very friendly and comfortable salon.”
I'm Jo, a fun loving senior hairstylist. I have been hairdressing for 15 years, and in this time I have gained numerous qualifications, including my assessors degree so I can teach the next generation. After several years of managing well-recognised salons in the heart of London, I decided to enjoy family life back in Devon and join the Heathman team.
Thank You Jo.
“Thank goodness for Jo. She fitted me in at very short notice to tend to a frizz of hair. Now my hair is all under control!”
“Jo is very good at hearing what I’m asking for, and seems to have magic fingers when it comes to cutting hair. She has a flair for styling to suit the individual.”
“Always have my hair cut and coloured by the amazing Jo, and I’m always made to feel so welcome by all the staff. Lovely salon.”
Kirsty qualified as a stylist in 2010, having trained locally and working in Newton Abbot and Torbay. Kirsty joined the Heathman team in 2017 and is one of the wedding hair specialists at the salon.
“Another fantastic job done by Kirsty. She always knows exactly what I want. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.”
“Thanks Kirsty for a great haircut today. I especially liked my 'bouncy curls' blow-dry. Very friendly service. I will definitely be back.”
“Kirsty is great, knows what I want and super quick for me today as my car was on a meter!! All the team are really friendly too.”
