What’s the difference in moisture and protein? Well, we like to think of it like this… Protein makes the hair strong, while moisture makes it flexible. That’s why we recommend @redken Extreme range to keep your blondes super strong 💪🏻 !

Hand over day 9/08/2022
3 years since we took over Duke street arcade,
It’s a Bitter sweat Day for us
We are super happy at our new home in Wyndham arcade , however it’s an end of an era for Duke st arcade, it’s been a salon since the 60’s / 70’s
With Sweeneys hair design, starting off with Wayne and then in later years with Bev at the helm .

Many of our clients remember having their first hairdo at Sweeneys !

Many a hairdresser will have learnt their trade here and gone on to work in top salons, travel & some owning their own salon.

I would just like to thank Bev for passing on such a wonderful salon and a wonderful team of girls whom without our moving in here, we would not have met and would not have the pleasure of them working at our new location as an integral part of out growing Team.


Hands up if you’ve got hair envy! 🙌
This beautiful look created for Gabriella was a complete team effort !

@ our city centre location

Hannah created the stunning colour using @redken Colour gels Lacquer & ShadesEQ gloss
Overlayed with @pulpriot.uk colour booster .

Megan created the beautiful blowdry & waves
Using #redken quick blowout & Big blowout
Waved with @ghdhairpro Platinum + styler

Georgia coached Megan on how to capture the perfect insta shot & Video !
