Stonehouse Salon & Spa, a chic, boutique Aveda salon is celebrating its first year in Wigan by inviting its guests to the salon for birthday drinks and cake this Saturday (1st December).

The salon, owned by creative director Craig Stonehouse and his partner Craig Harris, has firmly positioned itself at the centre of the Wigan community over the past 12 months by not only offering the very best in hair and beauty, but also by working in collaboration with local businesses, the Council, community groups and the local college.

The salon, an official partner of Aveda, based on Library Street, Wigan, has grown to employ six members of staff and has welcomed over 500 guests through its doors.

Craig Stonehouse, creative and colour director said: “I cannot believe how quickly the first 12 months have gone. We’ve had the most amazing year and would like to celebrate with all our customers so are inviting them to come along to the salon on Saturday and join in the birthday celebrations.

“For me it was a real honour to be invited to speak at the Business Expo to present on ‘Collaboration: the key to success’. Speaking about community cohesion, working in collaboration with partners and how to make a business successful by thinking outside the box, was something I felt proud to do as this is how we have worked over the past 12 months to great effect.”

Since opening, Stonehouse Salon & Spa has worked with local schools by participating in Q&A sessions for the children as well as providing free haircuts for children in foster care and supporting the local homelessness team, ‘The Brick’, in providing services for the homelessness population, to support them for applying for jobs or accommodation.

Stonehouse Salon & Spa was also the only hair salon in Wigan that sponsored this year’s Wigan pride, providing a pop-up stall with free glitter braiding and goody bags for anyone who visited the stall.

Craig Harris, managing director of Stonehouse Salon & Spa said: “I’m so proud of Craig and the whole team for everything we have achieved and delivered in our first year.”

The celebrations will take place on Saturday 1st December between the times of 9am and 5pm and customers will receive 20 per cent of ALL products bought in store. Feel free to pop along and congratulate the team and join the birthday fun.
