Hair Ministry is the brainchild of Donna, the Company Director. She was a regional manager for a large international salon group running 20 salons, but found the travelling and staying away from home just too much when her son was born. Wanting to remain local but still within the hairdressing industry, she decided to manage her own business and that’s when her first salon at Pinewood was born.
The company ethos is to recognize talent, nurture and train to the highest level allowing us to offer specialists in all areas and its due to this and good client recommendations that Donna has managed to build up her business such that 2 further salons have now opened.
Hair Ministry has been successfully cutting and styling men’s, ladies and children’s hair for 16 years. With salons based in Ipswich and Capel St Mary, Hair Ministry are easily accessible.
We have been gradually increasing our range of services to you so much so, we can now offer beauty treatments including spray tanning, massage, pedicures, manicures, facials, waxing and other beauty treatments.
Hair Ministry is committed to the importance of using exceptionally high-quality products to provide the very best for its clients. Using the renowned Schwarzkopf, Redken and G.H.D products in all our salons, stocking all the exclusive ranges for ‘in salon’ hair care including products for hair styling, colouring and treatments. Hair Ministry is also delighted to offer the Dermalogica product range for its beauty treatment arm of the business.
The retail area in all salons is well stocked to meet the needs and demands of all clients.
Hair Ministry is closely involved with the local community and schools, giving careers advice as well as the opportunity to participate in work experience programmes.
Hair Ministry has been pleased to participate in ‘Hair’ and ‘Beauty’ antics for many local and national charities.
One event being ‘Cops on the cat walk’ in order to help raise £3,000.00 for St Elizabeth Hospice and the East Anglian Children’s Hospice. The event entailed a full catwalk fashion show styling 26 police officers including the Chief. Hair Ministry are proud to say they won a Southern Merit Award.
In 2006, Hair Ministry were the creative team ‘award winners’ for Schwarzkopf and finalists in 2007. When applying for entry to the awards, the team were involved in predicting the following seasons fashions and trends. By being successful in their foresight, Hair Ministry were accepted into the next round where they recreated the look (both hair and make-up) on models who took to the catwalk. With over 30 teams in the event from Southern England, Hair Ministry are very proud of their achievement.
From their Pinewood Salon, Hair Ministry have styled some famous faces in the region including Ipswich Town footballers. Donna and Zoe have completed two fashion shows in conjunction with Fire and Ice (an Ipswich Nightclub) where the towns footballers were used as models.
