First Look At KH Hair Leicester’s New Home
One of the city’s most established hairdressers, KH Hair, has opened a beautiful new salon on Bowling Green Street in Leicester, as part of its constant evolution. dLuxe LEICESTERSHIRE & RUTLAND spoke exclusively to Salon Director, Amanda Fall, to get the lowdown on the move…
KH Hair has been in Leicester over 40 years; why is now the time to move?
Leicester was one of the first Keith Hall salons to open back in the 1960s and since then the salon has grown from strength to strength. As we continue to grow, the time was right to find a new, bigger salon, which would be able to accommodate our expanding offer. Not only are we in beautiful new surrounds, but we’re also now on the ground floor which means easier access for all our clients and a more visual impact within the city.
So what does the new salon have to offer?
We’ve invested heavily in the new salon and that definitely shows when you walk through the door. We have carried out an extensive refurbishment of the existing building and completely transformed the space. Where bookshelves once stood in the old Waterstones, we now have the very latest salon equipment and beautiful furniture that we’ve personally sourced to create a contemporary environment befitting the service we offer at KH Hair. We also have a new dedicated beauty room which provides a tranquil escape from the city, and a beautiful reception area with relaxing armchairs for consultations. Everything in the salon is new and we worked with an architect to bring the space to life, so we’re very excited to now be unveiling it to the world!
KH Hair has been part of the landscape in Leicester for many years, why do you think the business has succeeded so well?
I would definitely attribute the success of all KH Hair salons to the ethos that stems from the founder of the company, Mr. Keith Hall. His objective was to nurture talent and create rising stars of today and the future. This has never changed. As new salons open, including our most recent one in Oadby which is a sister salon to Leicester, they become part of the extended family and we all work together to support each other and bring new ideas to the salon floor. Many of our stylists qualified at the KH Hair Training Academy, which not only provides the very best education but also equips graduates with a customer service qualification to prepare them for life in a salon. We are all very passionate about what we do and looking after our clients is our number one priority.
KH Hair is one of the largest hairdressing groups in the country with 22 salons throughout the Midlands. KH Hair Leicester has opened its new salon at 25 Bowling Green Street, and KH Hair Oadby is situated on The Parade.
