Bev @ Michael Laurence
A unique hair salon that inspires creativity!
We understand that most ladies prefer to stay with their existing salon/stylist, which we totally understand and respect. But we would like to introduce ourselves to ladies that are new to the area or those that might just fancy a change, to see what is out there.
Our salon in Horsforth is just like most other salons; we don’t profess to be ingenious or unique or revolutionary. But what we are — and are very proud of — is professional, caring and good listeners. It’s your hair, and you know what you want!
Yes, we will offer advice and years of knowledge thrown into the pot to give you the hair confidence that maybe you have been lacking. However, one thing we are for sure is FUN — all our clients say they leave with a smile on their faces. The girls who work here all really enjoy coming to work. Our clients come for great hair and hopefully have a bit of respite fun whilst they are here.
I am Bev and this is my salon, which I am very proud to run in my own special way. I have been a hairstylist all my life. I started here in 1988 (God, am I that old?) then Michael decided to sell in 2012, so I bought it. Since then we refurbished it, gave it a ladies’ feel and increased our customers three-fold.
Our products are Matrix and Sexy Hair; we don’t believe in hosting lots of brands but prefer to specialise in a few. This has proved to be a successful formula for us. I am also proud to be a Matrix ‘Colour Master’ which, in English, means I am one of an elite group in the UK to be extremely qualified in hair colour.
Of the five of us ladies that work here, four of us are fully qualified and we have one lovely young trainee. I DO NOT AGREE with charging more for more experienced stylists. At my salon everyone is good, and we are all equal. I think this shines through in our happy demeanours.
Opening days are Monday (yep, we open Mondays), Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Opening times are Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 9 am to 6 pm, Saturday: 8 am–4 pm and Thursday: 9 am–as late as is required. If you suffer from anxiety, just want a quiet environment, or simply work late please call us; we will bend over backwards to accommodate you on a Thursday evening.
From all of us, we hope to see you soon.
