We are holding an Open Evening Event on

Monday 26th September to celebrate this momentous occasion with all our clients, family, friends and suppliers.

Over the years we have raised an incredible amount of money for numerous charities, and want to continue this effort for our big anniversary. We are holding a raffle with fantastic prizes donated from local businesses, to raise money for three worthy charities Alzheimer's Society, KGH Twinkling Stars Appeal and Stroke Association. Raffle tickets are available to purchase in salon. Take a look at the prizes here

In salon, we have been collecting some of your memories from over the years, and have loved reading all your beautiful comments. Here are just a couple of anecdotes from our lovely clients:

"I have been coming to Newmans for over 30 years. I was in the shop below in 1990 when my waters broke with my 4th son on the way. All 4 boys had their hair cuts by John. The youngest always fell asleep! Newmans have done all my styles, curly perms in the 80's, bobs - the lot. Always a happy, caring, environment to visit. Congratulations Shirley & John x" Debbie

"I have been visiting this salon now for about 12 years. From day one I was made to feel welcome, relaxed and in capable hands. John was my first regular stylist and even cut my baby boys hair for the first time as well as nursing him on his chest whilst I had my hair cut. The whole team are superb and work hard to maintain the high standards I have come to appreciate. I would always recommend this salon to anyone not just for the highly skilled stylists but for the overall experience. From the moment you are greeted to being handed your coat and leaving, you feel like you matter and are a valued customer. Long May it continue x"


We are so grateful for all of your incredible support and looking forward to celebrating with you!
