What We Do

We offer a range of hair and beauty services. Our aim is to create a workspace that is professional, relaxed, and also welcoming, and where clients can be pampered until their heart’s content. Our experienced and qualified team are able to fashion hairstyles for both men and women, while our beauty treatments are equal to any found on the high street.

Why We Do It

We believe everyone has something to offer, and that given the chance people who are marginalised from mainstream society will overcome the barriers they face in regards to employment, education, training, or in living a rich and fulfilling life.   

What We Learn

Each day we see the amazing skills and talents disadvantaged people have to offer, and how, with a positive support network, they can make a valuable contribution to their community.

What Next?

We aim to grow our brand by increasing the number of services and treatments we can offer clients looking for an alternative to the high street. Also, generating our own income will allow us to create more opportunities to further the aspirations of the most vulnerable people in society.
