The salon prides itself on its friendly, professional team who offer the highest level of hairdressing and beauty services in the city, and for being the first in the region to offer the latest technology such as Schwarzkopf Professional’s SalonLab Smart Digital Hair Analyzer and brand-new premium luxury haircare brand, Fibre Clinix. Collective Hairdressing has been recognised as the Best Hairdressing and Beauty Salon, 2022 - North East England in this issue of SME News, so we delve deeper into what makes this the case. Collective Hairdressing & Beauty are known to be the best hair salon in Newcastle upon Tyne, with its talented team of multi-awardwinning hairdressers providing a full range of hairdressing & Beauty services to all ages including women, men, non-binary, and children. It is an LGBTQ+-friendly salon and the only one in the city that is listed as an inclusive and safe space in which all visitors are valued and equal. Believing that great hair is for everyone, it has made it its mission to create an environment where everyone feels safe, comfortable and confident. The salon exclusively uses Schwarzkopf Professional products after approaching the brand in 2018. An eight-month period of product testing was carried out prior to moving from its brand at the time, L’Oreal Professional, showing its true commitment to quality and innovation. The Collective Hairdressing team understand how unsure one can feel when considering a new hairstyle, wondering whether it will suit them or not, so this is why a unique fivestep consultation is offered to make sure the hairdresser understands exactly what the client wants and so the client knows exactly how it will be achieved. This service is delivered using the revolutionary Schwarzkopf Professional SalonLab Smart Hair Analyzer, with Collective Hairdressing being the first salon in the North East of England to be selected to implement this game changing device. Alongside the use of this technology, each hairdresser is trained in the art of really listening to what the client wants. The SalonLab Smart Hair Analyzer is the very latest in cutting-edge technology which allows a near-infrared sensor to measure the quality of the hair condition. Until now, hair diagnosis has been limited to its outer appearance. The inner hair is scanned, the measurements and the consultation questionnaire create a unique hair profile that leads to a personalised in-person service and tailored homecare products exclusively for the client. Collective Hairdressing’s clients and team have been both amazed and surprised by the results so far! Most salons offer a wash, cut and finish, but Collective Hairdressing provides a haircut with a professional home haircare plan so the client can maintain their beautiful new hairstyle. The hairdresser will advise and educate the client on the products they will be using while creating their style, and they will recommend and provide products to help maintain this style to keep it looking great in between salon visits. Alongside the salon’s outstanding hairdressing service, it also provides a full range of beauty treatments, all carried out to the highest standard by level 6 trained therapist, Emy. Most beauty salon therapists are only trained to level 2 or 3, but clients are invited to experience the different with a level 6 therapist! Treatments available include waxing, eyebrow threading, facials, manicures, pedicures, nail extensions, massages, eyelash and brow tinting, eyelash perming, along with a series of packages. Indeed, Collective Hairdressing’s team offers the very best services in the field. Its team never settle for second best and they always have the client’s satisfaction as their top priority. They will always listen to the client’s needs, advise them, and recommend the correct homecare as required. And they will always take the time necessary to properly complete each service and will never rush a client out of the door. Company: Collective Hairdressing & Beauty Website:
