Our Story

Carly Ryder and Lorraine Haskins had previously worked together in 2 salons as hairdressers, with Carly’s mum, Donna Ryder. Donna had always wanted her own business, and it was just a matter of time before Carly and Lorrained gained enough experience and realised how well they all worked together before starting their own empire. In the summer of 2007, they found their ideal premises in Colchester, Essex. Inspired by years of working in the industry and researching other salons, the partners came up with a modern and contemporary design for their salon creating a stylish and relaxing environment for clients. “We took ideas on board, but gave them a twist so that ours was unique”.
