The opening of a hair salon at Creake Abbey marks the expansion of business for two stylists well established in north Norfolk.
Sam Ashby and Chris Graham already operate a salon in Holt, which opened in 1995.
Six Appleyard opens at Creake Abbey tomorrow, and is the latest addition to the converted barn and courtyard retail area at Creake Abbey, joining other Norfolk talents Christopher William Country, Home by Annie Lambert, Dany Evans Decorative Art and Tidal Therapies and the newly-opened cafe and food hall.
Six Appleyard states that the salon will offer the same highly-qualified stylists for cut, colour, styling and haircare as the sister salon situated in Holt.
A wide range of Aveda products are available, too, as well as other specialist treatments.
Located just off the B1355 between Burnham Market and Fakenham, the salon will be open six days a week from 10am to 6pm and although booking is strongly advised, walk-in appointments may be possible.
Six Appleyard Creake Abbey will benefit from the impressive footfall from the monthly farmers’ markets, annual Plant Lovers Day and other events at the site as well as diners and shoppers enjoying the newly-opened cafe and food hall.
Founder and director stylist Sam said: “We are over the moon to be here at Creake Abbey, it’s a wonderful place to open our second salon.
“Creake offers fantastic facilities and a great atmosphere for our clients and prospective clients.
“We are very thankful to all the businesses at Creake Abbey for their warm welcome and words of encouragement.”
To get the salon up and running Sam and Chris used local tradesmen Adrian Armstrong Building and Plumbing, Michael Bacon for electrics, Sean Edwards to decorate and Sophie at Cyan Commerce and Cyber Select for the computer systems.
