Sellers Wheel, the former cutlery works on Arundel Street, is cutting-edge again...
Blades are whirring once again at the Grade II listed building, which was renovated and restored at the end of last year and now houses upmarket salon Laundry for Hair.
The salon has been so busy, it is recruiting at top speed to keep up with demand.
Laundry opened in November with a team of three and has just recruited Claire Jennings as their eleventh stylist. A further two, Gemma Richardson and Chloe Ashby, arrive later this month.
Head of Laundry Mitchell Wilson comments: “We opened in November, hit the ground running and we need more stylists just to cope. We are delighted to have hit on a formula that not only raises the profile of Sheffield and creates solid jobs.
Sheffielder Mitchell worked as a top stylist for Toni and Guy in London in the nineties, returning to his home city to open one of the first toni and Guys in the north in 1996.
Laundry’s interior, an homage to the building’s history with inventive use of reclaimed and salvaged materials was created by award-winning Sheffield agency 93ft.
MAC-trained make-up artist Sarah Turgoose has opened her own make-up studio.
Perfect Reflection is based in the grounds of her quaint 18th century home in Braithwell, near Doncaster.
“Working on a make-up counter made me realise how many people don’t know the basics of make-up application because they’ve never really been shown how,” says Sarah.
The 22-year-old does everything from wedding and prom make-up to tutorials at her studio on Fishpond Lane. “Make-up can be a real confidence booster and I wanted to pass my tips on to other people.”
Wedding packages start from £60 and express make-up sessions are from £30,
