Westrow Skipton, part of the Yorkshire-based Westrow salon group, held a glamorous relaunch party to mark a new direction for the salon, which will now be led by new franchisee, Laura Procter.

The salon, which originally opened in March 2017, is the largest of all the Westrow salons. The first lifestyle salon in the brand’s ten-strong salon portfolio spans two floors and boasts more than 2,500 square feet of salon space, offering clients the full Westrow hair service, as well as a luxury lifestyle area to allow guests to experience the products and services on offer.

New franchisee, Procter (also franchisee of Westrow West Park) is planning to “inject a new lease of life into the salon” with the aim of bringing a buzzy, city-centre vibe to the market town. With new salon manager, Sebastian McKenzie, at the helm, Procter plans to continue to offer the same award-winning hairdressing service that Westrow has become synonymous with. In addition, Procter intends to launch an exclusive new additional service menu of express beauty treatments in the near future.

The party, which took place against the backdrop of the salon’s glamorous interior, was attended by Skipton’s style set, where guests were invited to try out the salon’s services, while enjoying drinks and canapes.

Local radio station, Stray FM, joined on the night, covering the event, and the Mayor of Skipton, Councillor Peter Madeley was also in attendance to officially re-launch the salon. Guests were also joined by the teams from both Westrow Skipton and Westrow West Park, who treated guests to a range of complimentary styling services.

Alongside marking the re-launch of the business, the night also provided the ideal opportunity for local businesses and locals to see the deluxe, freshly re-launched salon and meet its team.

Procter commented: “I’m thrilled to take over the Westrow Skipton Franchise. I’ve been franchisee of Westrow West Park for the last 13 years, and look forward to injecting some of our team’s talents into this salon, to cater for the discerning clientele from Skipton and beyond.”
