After spending ten years living and working in London Helen decided that the time was right to return to Cumbria.
Helen Gee Hairdressing was established in 2008; a very small boutique style salon in White Hart Yard. After 7 successful years, in November 2015 the salon expanded and moved to Market Street, Ulverston.
Helen believes that one of the most important factors of a clients' visit to the salon is the consultation, to ensure that the client receives the hairstyle that is most suitable.
”Communicating and connecting with the person in the chair is so important. We want to establish exactly what the person wants, needs and expects and sometimes that means enquiring further.”
Helen is passionate about giving an unsurpassed standard of service to each client. She is dedicated to striving for flair whilst maintaining a strong sense of integrity, giving genuine honest advice.
Helen offers services in cutting, blow-drying, colouring and styling.
Our philosophy: “Every client is a unique individual. Whilst it is important that a hairstyle is tailored to suit a client’s physical attributes, such as face shape and hair texture, it is equally important that it reflects their personality and lifestyle.”
Our 2 apprentices, Leah and Bethan will shampoo your hair, offer you drinks and make you feel pampered and cared for enhancing your salon experience.
