From best friends to business partners as Hayle pair set up a new hair salon in the town.
Rob Holden and Vicki James have teamed up to open Hair by Aspire, a modern stylish hair salon in the up and coming Marsh Lane Industrial Estate.
The pair, who have more than 20 years’ experience in the industry between them, decided to take on a challenge and start the new business venture together.
“We have worked together for more than 10 years. I think our relationship is so good it is going to benefit our business. This was the next step for us. We are really excited to take on a fresh challenge,” said Vicki.
Hair By Aspire is offering customers cutting, styling, colouring and hair extensions, as well as offering wedding and occasion packages at affordable prices.
Vicki is a hair extensions expert and enjoys colouring, while Rob likes styling hair and creating occasion hair do’s.
Stylists Chantal James and Aimee Moon, who have both previously worked with Rob and Vicki, complete the team.
Rob said: “The team we have got really work well. Everyone brings something different and we work to each other’s strengths.”
With plush leather seats and minimalist décor, the duo hopes to bring a touch of city glamour to their salon, which stocks hair colouring and other products from high-end TIGI range.
Rob and Vicki, who both live in Hayle, said that people of all ages are welcome in the salon and they are flexible to meet the needs of their clients.
Since opening on January 8, the pair have been encouraged by how successful their first couple of weeks have been.
“We have been overwhelmed by support from our client base. The first week was non-stop and we want to thank everyone for their kind messages,” added Rob.
The salon is one part of the unit, with the adjacent
fitness and wellbeing centre Aspire set to open in the coming weeks.
Hair by Aspire is located at Unit 24 and is open Tuesday to Saturday 9 until 6pm, with late opening on Fridays.
Appointments out with those times are available upon request.
