‘A family affair.’

Salon owner Margaret began her journey working as a Saturday girl in a salon on Newcastle’s Saville Row. With a flair for hairdressing and a warm personality, she quickly progressed to Manageress, and eventually Salon Owner. Situated in the Bigg Market, the ‘Hair Cabin' flourished and from this Margaret’s daughters Claire and Joanne chose to follow her into the trade.

The salon was renamed ‘At Sisters’ and relocated to a state of the art space on Pink Lane. The business has continued to grow over the last few years and is supported by a team of thirteen committed and enthusiastic staff, headed by Claire. Through her drive and passion they have achieved numerous goals and accomplishments both as a team and individuals. Most significantly, At Sisters won the L’Oreal Professional 100 Year Birthday Celebration Competition out of hundreds of entries nationwide. The prize money of £10,000 allowed the team to enhance and develop their skills, such as enabling Claire to gain her Colour Specialist degree making her part of an elite group of experts in the UK with an unparalleled knowledge of colour. 

The At Sisters team thrive on competition. On reaching the regional final of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy last year, they are currently working on entries for this year’s competition which sees the whole team getting involved in numerous different fields. Only adding to their list of achievements, Joanne and Jade became the first therapists in Newcastle to be awarded the Dermalogica Expert status. The salon is constantly researching new treatments and product ranges, emphasising their continuing innovation.

Despite the long journey the salon has taken, founder Margaret continues to support the business by motivating the At Sisters team. She maintains a role in the administration of the business, organising travel and finances. After 50 years of being in the hairdressing industry she is still enjoying playing an active part in the day to day running of the business.

At Sisters has maintained family values since its creation and has always endeavoured to offer a ‘different experience’ to any other salon.
