The prestigious Freddie’s hair salon has been on Bank Street, Rawtenstall, for 24 years – and many of Freddie’s loyal customers have been regulars since the day he very first opened.
That in itself is testament to how Freddie and his team place so much importance on making their clients feel welcome.
But whilst that is Freddie’s secret ingredient, the key to any successful salon is talent and creativity – and Freddie’s has that in bundles.
Freddie’s passion is hair and he has passed that onto his dedicated team of stylists who consistently turn their clients’ wishes into stunning reality.
Over the past two decades, Freddie’s has established itself as one of the most successful and progressive salons in the North West.
Between them, Freddie and his team have more than 120 years of experience. Some of them have been at the salon from the start back in 1992 – never needing to go elsewhere to further their careers, whilst all junior staff are coached from day one in everything from excellent customer care to the latest hairdressing methods.
All training is carried out in-house by Freddie and his senior stylists, in conjunction with Schwarzkopf Professional who ensure that the Freddie’s team are at the forefront of cutting edge techniques and the latest trends. Salon owner Freddie Cunliffe said: “We pride ourselves on being affordable luxury. No matter which member of staff our clients choose, they know they are getting a five star service in our salon.
“Attention to detail is key, as is making sure every, single client is completely comfortable from the moment they step foot in our salon to when they leave feeling fabulous.”
“Some of our clients have been with us from the start and we are proud to say that they love what we do so much some of them even travel as far as from Scotland and Oxford to enjoy the Freddie’s experience. Many of them have become firm friends.”
“But because our staff are always learning, growing and building their own reputations in the industry we are constantly welcoming new clients into our salon and hope we continue to do so.”
All products used in Freddie’s are top-of-the-range luxury, including Schwarzkopf Professional colours and home care, and they are one of the only salons in the North West to stock the much lusted-after range created by Oribe, super-stylist to stars including Jennifer Lopez, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lady Gaga.
“We want every client to feel at home here,” says Freddie. “But we also want them to feel a million dollars when they leave.”
