Start Up Salon & Spa Celebrates First Year in Wigan

Stonehouse Salon & Spa, a chic, boutique Aveda salon celebrated its first year in Wigan by welcoming guests to the salon with birthday drinks and cake.

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 were so pleased to celebrate with all our customers and enjoy the birthday celebrations with them.”

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.
