        Prime Truro is a laid back independent and eco friendly hairdresser's, specialising in natural colouring and master barbering. In light of the coronavirus pandemic, many changes had to be made to Prime to ensure everyone's safety, but the team feel they have come back with a fresh look and even stronger than ever before. You can still enjoy a huge number of ethically sourced bean to cup coffees, now to take away only.

        With our experienced in-house hairdressers and barbers, you can easily book your cut, colour, beard trim or skin fade, proudly boasting over 600   5star client reviews! We are unlike any other coffee shop, salon or barbers you will find anywhere. We have grown from a husband & wife team with Newquay roots; and are now proud to be open in the heart of Truro city, with the beautiful cathedral as a neighbouring point of interest. 

Our stylists and colourists are proud to use Natulique, a cruelty free brand using natural ingredients, being vegan and certified organic where ever possible.

Head to our meet the team page to check out our dedicated bunch, who have bags of years of experience.

Feel welcome from the moment you enter, without the fear of being sucked in by a gaggle of pointy-nailed clones pumped full of holiday questions. Both ladies and gents can flow through our easy booking app and reserve a seat, to find themselves in the safe and artistic hands of the barber or stylist of their choice.

We strive to be a hub for the creative community; a place for all ages in the very heart of Truro. 

With hundreds of customers now enjoying our Booking service app and rating with top reviews, Truro's once hidden gem is no longer a well kept secret. Formally named Steam, with locations in Newquay and the truro Pannier Market, you will now find us opposite Vertigo, by the cathedral.

 Be assured once you book that your seat is ready for you at the time you select; no more of your life will be wasted slumped over waiting on a busy bench.

Simply  use the 'book now' button on this homepage or download the blue App 'Booksy' onto your phone to join the future of barbering, and the ease of bookings; the rest is easy!

Apps not your thing? Don't hesitate to give us a call and we'll help you get booked in.
