Additional Lengths celebrated the opening event of their new flagship salon and store on Saturday 11th March with Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby cutting the ribbon alongside Managing Director Victoria Lynch. Queuing guests took their first peek inside before the official opening on Monday 13th March.
Having relocated the separate salon and store from the original site in town, to move further into the hive of the town centre, the new salon boasts four stylists’ workstations including a hair replacement room. The new location also has a training academy for the business’ professional brand, Remi Cachet, as well as specific video technology to help the stylists share their work easily on social and feature walls to capture those client selfies. In addition to the salon, the store also stocks Additional Lengths own brand of hair extensions; their luxury brand Remi Cachet and their electrical styling tools range by Qute. As well as more products from leading hair brands; to serve the local community with the best hair extensions and hair care products.
Speaking at the opening Victoria said, “I’m really excited because it has allowed us to work on a new location, strip it back to the bones, and then build up an aesthetic design in a way that we want to make it last for 10 years.” She added, “I’m very proud that this is now our new flagship store and hopefully this will help us look at what we are going to do in the future in terms of a store – are we going to replicate this somewhere else in the UK.”
Charlotte Crosby joined Managing Director, Victoria Lynch to cut the ribbon and officially open the new location. The salon was then open to the public to browse and grab a photo with Charlotte and Tanyel on one of the salons instagrammable backgrounds.
Charlotte has also joined Additional Lengths as the host for the annual Summer Ball and Awards for the last few years, been a guest on the founder’s Haircast podcast and is a devoted hair extension wearer. “It is absolutely stunning, and I want to come here, I want to live here. It is such a lovely thing to bring to this local area – people are going to enjoy coming in here to get their little girly blowdrys and get their hair done. It is going to be amazing!” said Charlotte during the opening.
Tanyel Revan straight out of this season’s Love Island also attended the event. As a hair extensionist who has been working with and wearing Remi Cachet herself for years, it was great to get her support. Talking about the salon Tanyel said “I think it’s lovely! It’s very neutral which I prefer – when people come in, they feel comfy and warm.”
