A GROTTON hair and beauty salon is enjoying a makeover of its own as a new management team gives it a fresh lease of life.
Grotton One, which is next to the Co-op, was taken over by Stef Hughes in November and since then she has been busy revamping the venue as well as taking on new staff.
Stef, who lives in Greenfield and previously ran ‘PHD’ salon in Clarksfield for ten years, has even taken a sabbatical from being a tutor at Kirklees College to concentrate on the salon.
“I’m very excited and determined to bring in lots of new ideas,” she said. “But the first step is to remind people we’re here and we’ve reopened!”
Customers are invited to the brightly-coloured salon, which has free wifi, to enjoy treatments in the large hairdressing studio or one of the five beauty rooms.
Hairdressing services available including cuts, extensions and colours from stylists Stef, Charl Heaney who trained with Toni and Guy with Oldham, and Jon Briggs who trained with Premier in Lees.
A host of beauty therapies are also on offer, ranging from acrylic nails and manicures by nail technician Jayne Kennedy to waxing, XEN spray tans, sunbeds and flabelos.
And newest staff member Bekki Fallon, who runs Holistic Health and Happiness, will be offering Reiki sessions and soft and deep tissue massages, on Fridays by appointment.
Reiki master Bekki explained: “A few years ago a friend introduced me to Reiki and I was really surprised. I realised it’s what I want to be doing now, to help people.
“It can help the mind, body and spirit and I’ve got a lot of clients I see regularly who benefit from Reiki or the massages.”
Stef revealed: “We really want to be a one-stop shop for hair and beauty services, offering everything under one roof so it’s convenient.”
Jon added: “Flabelos is really popular and good to combine with going to the gym. I’ve done it and it is great!”
The revamped salon is holding a special Open Day on Saturday, February 13 from 3-5pm including hair and nail art demonstrations, massages, reiki tasters, and jewellery.
There will also be nibbles and Prosecco, goodie bags and a raffle with prizes including GHD straighteners. For more details please contact the salon or check their Facebook page.
