What is HK Hair & Wellness? In short... it is owned by me, Hannah Klewpatinond and run alongside my incredible team offering hair, wellness, waxing, nails, facials, nutrition and massage space that is sustainable, inclusive and accessible to all. In this blog I wanted to explain a little bit more about that last sentence; why it is important and why our clients love it too.
Accessible & Inclusive
Both our chilled HK Wellness area (think beauty treatments, meditation, reiki, loads of plants!) and our HK Salon space (think aluminium, mirrors, awesome hair, and more plants!) are accessible whatever our clients’ and stylist’s mobility needs. Wide door frames, ramps, and no steps to ensure we can welcome everyone. We have two reclining massage shampoo chairs for our clients that are able to use our seats or transfer. If you are in your own chair though, we have a shampoo basin that is accessible too so you don’t (& should never have to) miss out on a service. We offer hairdressing services for all hair types and you can request the perfect appointment type for you. Some of our clients have missed the buzz of a busy salon since lockdown and we can definitely offer that! Some may wear a hijab; experience anxiety or many need support with styling whilst transitioning - so a one-to-one appointment may be preferable. Whatever your need, we’ve got you and our gender-neutral pricing means you just pay for the service time taken and products used. We even go further to support our clients and are proud to say that during lockdown, we trained in Mental Health First Aid at Work, so will confidently signpost our clients to support their overall wellbeing too.
We are proud to say we have partnered with Green Salon Collective, a UK based sustainability business, since 2021 and they support us in recycling 97% of ALL waste from HK Hair & Wellness! With only 1% of UK hairdressing foil making its way to recycling, we are delighted to say ours is different as ALL of ours is recycled… particularly with the amount of professional hair colouring we do! What’s even better though, is when the aluminium is recycled and resold, the money earned is donated to charity - as HK Hair has already paid for the recycle process! The hair that we cut off is used to help with clearing up oil spills, tree planting and even rope making. Plastics, card, and paper recycling, alongside our compostable towels ensure that we are leaving as little impact on the environment as possible… but a huge impact on our clients, their wellbeing, and their awesome hair!
We are delighted to be based at the tranquil Furtho Manor Farm, near Old Stratford, which is incredible for our clients and staff - we are currently growing our workshop/event offering so if you have a specialism in wellness, relaxation or holistic services and share our values then please get in touch!
