New Prints

We finally have our Little Print Shop of Horrors prints framed and up on the walls in the main room. All the money paid for the prints went to a great cause, Huntingtons Disease Association.

Thanks to Creative Spark Manchester (Little Print Shop of Horrors) for the prints and to our neighbours downstairs Baron Fine Art for the amazing framing job they have done.

Time for a little Spruce

We were closed in-between Christmas and New Year to give the salon a little spruce. Floors and walls were painted and we have a new friend...


A Christmas Message

The time has come to close our doors for Christmas once again. Our year has ended with two festivals under our belt, bad backs, sprained ankles, sickness bugs, 24 miles and 3 peaks walked with over £2000 raised for Cancer Research. Parents have been lost, a baby has been born and another has been made and our lovely clients have been there with us all the way through. So to our clients old and new I'd like to say a very heartfelt THANK YOU!!
And finally a little message to the team. I said it last year and I'll say it again. I am so lucky to work with such a funny and talented bunch, with out you there is no VAIN so thanks for the ride guys!

Snip Snip

Our gorgeous client Jasmine came in with hair past her boobs, wanted a spruce so she went for the chop.


Cruelty Free hair...

Actress Claire Cooper came in for a colour and tidy up with Jolene. She loves that our products are cruelty free!!


Jorgie Porter popped in to say hi...

Actress Jorgie Porter was in the building for a shoot with our roomie Tony Blake Photography. Got her hair did by Siobhan and met the girls, and the assistants too!


Yummy Mummy

Heres our very own Emma at her baby shower. Only 2 weeks to go till we see that little face!


Training is going well.....

Training for our Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge began a few weeks ago with some the team, including the pooches, heading up to Moel Famau after work on some of the hottest days of the year so far. But training can't happen with out the odd injury, first up was Jolene and a sprained ankle!


Our client Sarh came in for the chop.  A new textured bob and fringe for her!

OM and AH London. Behind the scenes.

Jolene and Jemma worked with OM and AH London last weekend on images for their new Yoga wear that will be out soon.

 Its a tough job for our assistants but someones got to do it!

Davines has landed

We now are the proud owners of a load of Davines products for us to use and for you to buy. Again like the other products we use here at VAIN - NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS #crueltyfree

Celeb spot

Jolene looked after actress Claire Cooper when she came in this week. One of the reasons Claire loves VAIN is that none of the colours or products we use here are tested on animals and so are cruelty free.

London Town

Some of the team spent the weekend getting inspiration from them streets of London and nipped into Salon International whilst they were there...


One of our fave colours to come out of the salon this week.

Om and Ah

Siobhan and Jemma have been busy working with ethical clothing brand Om and Ah for their new season. Heres some pics on location.
