City-style salon is a cut above the rest


Watkins-Wright opening nightLADIES' barbershop singing quartet Led Astray were on hand with musical entertainment when a Knaresborough hair salon held a relaunch and open evening last week.

Formerly known as The Cut Club, the High Street-based salon now known as Watkins-Wright Hairdressing and Beauty, has been fully refurbished.

Invited guests attended a canapes and drinks evening to mark the re-naming of the salon with manager, Paul Wright, his staff and customers enjoying a well attended and highly successful evening.

"We were pleased to see so many people at the re-launch event," said Paul.

"Our aim is to offer a city-style salon with all the comforts that go with that. As well as the newly-refurbished downstairs hair salon, we also have a relaxation room where customers can enjoy refreshments and free manicures and pedicures.

"All our photographic displays are our own work and local artist, Anna Hay from Knaresborough has helped in the re-designing of the interior with eight unique panels of abstract painting she has done."

Paul added: "The salon has achieved the Investors in People Award and every year our business is invited to attend the Salon International exhibition in London and do live on-stage demonstrations."

Paul and his business partner, Jill also have salons in Great Ayton and Thirsk. They are looking forward to welcoming customers old and new to the new-look premises.
