A little bit about us

Established in 1968 by Jon Chapman in Victoria Road, Cambridge, Scruffs is now led by sons Garry and Grant Chapman.  We are a team of forty including stylists, front of house, apprentices and management.

Recently Garry’s daughter joined the team. The third generation of the Chapman family business.   Several members of staff are second or third generation hairdressers. Christian is a third generation hairdresser (his Mum was trained by Jon).

In 2010 the business moved to beautiful Grade II listed premises in central Cambridge; where we are today.  Our building provides us with natural light through the sash windows, high ceilings and period features, creating a relaxing and calm environment.

Our salon is designed to give each stylist space to work and for customers to feel relaxed.   The building allows us to all work together sharing ideas and expertise.  We get inspiration from each other.

The Scruffs vision – to be a ‘family’, to be friendly, creative and offer a luxurious experience – stems from Jon’s passion.  With over 50 years experience we are all so proud of what we’ve achieved together. It is truly a collective talent and focus that has got us here.   We hope to provide the best in hair styling and colouring in Cambridge for years to come!

We strive for excellence in everything we do – so that your Scruffs’ experience is a positive and uplifting one.
