What do you do? What services do you provide?

We pride ourselves on the relationships that we build with our clients. Communication is crucial to stylists being able to fulfil each client’s vision. It’s not just about hair, it’s also about the extra personal touches we bring to the salon. Our clients are in a safe space and able to express themselves openly with absolutely no judgement. To see them walk out the salon beaming brings us so much pleasure.

Why did you decide to open your own salon?

I’ve worked in hairdressers since I was 15 and in Wallasey for more than 20 years. I opened Helen Moore Hairdressing in the village in November 2021 which, after Covid-19, seemed like a mad idea. The Covid pandemic made people realise how much they needed and missed their hairdresser and then with people working from home salon visits are extra special, not only for amazing hair appointments but for mental health and well-being.

What’s your hair and beauty background?

Going into our third successful year in business in the village and growing constantly in such uncertain economic times is testament to how such a successful and passionate team can grow and we don’t take one minute of it for granted. I’ve been working closely with our suppliers Kemon Northern Ireland and with their academy and being flying back and forth to deliver up to date training for the team. I’m proud to say I’m now a UK ambassador for the brand.

How did the Covid pandemic affect your business?

Covid was a terrible time for businesses but I’m always in the mindset that something positive came out of it - the support local businesses gave each other. I was lucky to be nominated as a Wirral high street hero which then led to a ‘shop safe, shop local’ campaign with Wirral Council. This was to encourage people back into our local shops, supporting small businesses in a safe way.

What makes your business different to others in the same area/field? What sets your business apart from your competitors?

I have great pride in our community and village and it’s so lovely to be able to give back on a regular basis. I like to be able to support local charities that are close to my heart and regularly hold charity events. We’ve had charity days for Alder Hey and SANDS and have also been a drop off point for supplied for Ukraine and Turkey. I have plans to hold a Christmas drop off point for Wirral Women’s and Children’s Aid.

What’s next? What do the next few months hold for you and your salon?

My vision is for us to keep striving forward, constantly learning and developing the team. For my team’s well-being and bonding I feel it’s essential to have away days with team bonding so relationships can blossom not only inside the salon but outside and with our families as well. The salon is going from strength to strength and I’m truly blessed have such wonderful clients who have supported us for so long.
