Hair Salons in Newcastle and Teesside

Gary Hooker and Michael Young are renowned for their beautiful hair imagery, which they bring to life in their four luxurious hair salons in Newcastle and the North East of England.

It’s with very heavy hearts that we share this post today.

After much consideration, we have taken the difficult decision to close all HOOKER & YOUNG Salons with immediate effect.

In the best interest of our team and all of our clients we feel it is the best thing to do in protecting everyone from the risks of the coronavirus.

The Government has taken the necessary steps to create social distancing by closing many industries, however, these do not include hairdressing salons.

Salons all across the country are uniting in ‘doing the right thing’ in closing their businesses for the foreseeable future until we all know that our salons are a safe place for everyone to be.

For now, it’s very difficult for us to re-schedule the affected appointments as we don’t at this stage know how long the closure will last. But do rest assured that as soon as we re-open our doors we will contact each and every one of our clients to re-book all appointments and hopefully we can all start our new journey together.

We will endeavour to keep everyone up to date through our social media platforms and the HOOKER & YOUNG website as to when we plan to re-open.
We would both like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful team and all of our loyal clients for their love, support and understanding through this truly difficult time that we all find ourselves in.

HOOKER & YOUNG are a family, that are strong in so many ways. We will re-emerge from this stronger than ever and ready to take on the world.
Stay safe, be kind and look after each other.
