Haringtons has just opened another salon, this time in Camberley, making it the thirteenth salon in the award-winning group designed to deliver fashionable, wearable hair and brilliant customer service.
The 1,000 square foot high street business is managed by franchisee and Style Director Daniel Kielty, 43, who joined Haringtons following a career in London and Maidenhead. He has spent the past eight months touring all the salons, immersing himself in the group's culture to familiarise himself with the company's ethos.
The salon's clutter-free, clean and pure white and chocolate interior creates orderly calm and a stress-free, relaxing vibe, further supported by the four fully reclining massaging backwash chairs which also service the salon's specialised Kérastase treatments.
Eleven discreetly lit, well spaced styling units afford just the right amount of client separation, so the high standards of customer care - for which Haringtons is so well known - can be properly managed. An inviting retail area stocks the salon's preferred haircare products from L'Oréal Professionnel, Redken and Kérastase ranges, as well as Cloud 9 electrical stylers.
Daniel employed personal trade contacts to refit the shop (which used to be a travel agents) project managing the refit himself to be familiar with every aspect of the salon should any service or utility issues rear their unexpected (and unwanted heads!) as time goes on.
Located in the middle of Camberley's busy, buzzy high street packed with popular bars, restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques, the salon attracts hair aware girls in the 20s to 50s age groups.
"The type of client who seeks proper advice and who knows she's going to get excellent service and be treated as a valued customer," explains Daniel.
Daniel chose a Haringtons franchise because he was so impressed with the company's reputation for embodying exactly what a good salon should be.
"The approach we take is to really listen to clients to ensure they leave with the cut and colour they've always wanted, while experiencing the most enjoyable of times when with us," says Daniel.
A cut and blowdry starts at £39 for a regular Stylist, through to £55 for Style Director Daniel. Great technical cutting skills and a keen observer's eye equip Daniel well to create the perfect style to suit every client's individual face shape and hair type. Senior Stylist Vicki Matthews has already been invited by Haringtons International Art Director Esti Carton, to join the Haringtons Young Art Team where she will work alongside the Senior Art Team assisting at shows, seminars and photo shoots. Recently back from presenting the Haringtons L'Oréal Spring Summer collections in Brussels, Esti said 'We are really looking forward to having Vicky on the team. She has great energy and enthusiasm and will be an asset to the group '.
Also supporting Daniel in the Camberley salon team are: Stylist Emily Streek; Colour technician Lauren Young; Receptionist Bunty Sykes and Salon Assistants Sherona and Jade.
