If you are looking for a cutting-edge salon in the heart of Sheffield, you cannot go far wrong with Wigs and Warpaint.

Situated in the Devonshire Quarter, the establishment has become one of the Steel City’s go-to places for a haircut guaranteed to turn heads for all the right reasons.

And its services do not stop with hair styling.

It has a Man of War division offering all the barbering and grooming services a metrosexual man could need; beauticians poised to glam people up for any occasion and a training academy to nurture young talent.

All this is why Wigs and Warpaint is one of the salons in the running to be crowned The Star’s Salon of the Year competition 2014.

We are looking for a salon in South Yorkshire which is a cut above the rest.

Claire Flack, Wigs and Warpaint’s owner and director, said making sure customers are happy has been at the top of her priorities since she opened the salon almost seven years ago with her partner, Paul Cox.

Claire, aged 36, said: “We are a friendly place – the whole team is approachable and professional.

“Going into a city centre salon can be quite intimidating, but we have a massive mixture of team members of different ages and experience levels, which means we get a whole mixture of clients too.

“Our customers are at ease and everyone is relaxed.”

Wigs and Warpaint has a reputation for being one of Sheffield’s most fashion-focused salons.

Claire said she and her 30-strong team keep an eye on future fashions to ensure they can pass on tips to clients.

She said: “We attend London Fashion Week and I have just got back from Paris Fashion Week.

“I think it’s massively important to keep up with trends and it means we are able to advise clients properly.”
