December 2012 : Tattenhall's Christmas Market 2012
A few images from Tattenhall's Christmas Market 2012 at which we had a stand.

The market's held in the parking area right behind the salon so we were able to extend the salon to the outside, positioning the stand directly outside the door, all very handy for keeping warm!

October 2012 : The Go Pink Grand Total

We're going to keep our fundraising going until the end of the month so please feel free to pop in to the salon to buy a goodie bag or a raffle ticket. Thanks again to everyone who's contributed.

September 2012 : American Crew Face Off 2013
Meet Salon Vie's entrants for American Crew Face Off 2013, a global competition to find the most talented men's stylist.

In November, we'll find out if we're through to the UK finals. After that, just one UK winner will go forward to the US final.

September 2012 : A Letter from the House of Commons
Today we received a letter stamped with the House of Commons logo, not something that we usually receive in the morning's post. What could it possibly be?

Well, it was a congratulations letter to Jane for winning the Northern finals of Redken's Men's Runway. We assume that our local MP saw the report of Jane's win in the local newspaper. It really is a nice touch to receive a congratulations letter like this.

A little bit of thought can go a long way. Have a look.

August 2012 : A Men's Hairdressing Masterclass Presented by Chris Foster
In August, Salon Vie welcomed men's grooming maestro, Chris Foster, who presented a masterclass in men's hairdressing. Chris is a session stylist, TV regular and multi award winning hairdresser, including being voted barber of the year an amazing three times!

Chris inspired the Salon Vie team to create a variety of on trend looks throughout the day, demonstrating to the group and then mentoring each team member individually.

The entire salon experience was covered, from initial consultation through to teaching the client how to best use the most suitable styling products for their hair.

The team found the day highly inspirational and will be applying the wealth of knowledge shared by Chris to all of Salon Vie's male clients.

August 2012 : Redken's 2012 Ultimate Chromatics Haircolour Contest
Jane Byrne's in competition mode again. This time, it's to create a signature look using Redken's Chromatics colour range. Our model for this competition is Natasha, who Jane met on the train when returning from the previous Redken competition, Men's Runway.

As is usual with these competitions, we can't post the photographs that have been submitted but we have some other before and after images from the photo shoot.

Jane says about the colour: 'Natasha's hair colour is a rich, bold, fusion of reds, coppers and golds with a 1950's feel to the overall style'. See what you think.

August 2012 : We're in American Crew's 2012 Style Guide, Twice!
American Crew's 2012 Style Guide is out, a salon-exclusive guide to the best in men's hairstyling this year. We're really excited that Salon Vie's featured twice within the guide. We have Matt, styled by Jane Byrne, finalist in American Crew's Face-Off 2012, and we have Danny, styled by Emma Davies, featured in the 'Classic Cuts' section of the guide.

July 2012 : A Presentation to Tattenhall's Women's Institute
In July, we had a great evening presenting to Tattenhall's Women's Institute. We used four models, all new to Salon Vie, each being given a new look including colour, cut and makeup. Richard, our winning model in Redken's Men's Runway 2012, burst into the room for a finale.

We've been told afterwards that many of the attendees found the presentation inspiring and some even mentioned that it had removed their fear of hairdressers. Honestly, we're not that scary :-) We're delighted that the evening was enjoyable.

June 2012 : An In-Salon Training Day by American Crew
At the end of June, Salon Vie was delighted to welcome Nick Taylor, educator for American Crew, to the salon. The training was part of Jane's prize for being chosen as a finalist in American Crew's Face Off 2012.

Nick inspired the Salon Vie team with a full day of training on the latest men's barbering techniques incorporating examples from American Crew's 2012 collection.

June 2012 : Jane Byrne's a WINNER in Redken's Men's Runway Awards 2012!
Join us in a big cheer for Jane Byrne, Art Director of Salon Vie, and her team, model Richard Jay and beautician Sarah Hughes, who've been announced as WINNERS in the Northern Regional Finals for Redken's Men's Runway Awards 2012.

Jane and her team have already been to London to recreate their look in front of a panel of judges and then had to do the same again for the Regional Finals which were held at The Point in Manchester.

In September, the team will be travelling to London's Brixton Academy for a glittering awards ceremony where the UK winners will be announced. Congratulations to Jane and her team and good luck for the London finals.

May 2012 : Book Your Appointment Even When We're Closed!
We've delighted to announce that Salon Vie now has online appointment booking. There's no longer any need to wait for the salons to open before you can book your appointment. Online booking is linked to our salon computer systems so, when you book, you can see what times we have appointments available with each stylist or beauty therapist.
April 2012 : Can you Spot the Difference?
Congratulations to Jane Byrne, and her team, for being named as Regional Finalists in Redken's Men's Runway Style Award 2012! The team will be heading down to London later this month where they have to recreate the submitted look in front of a panel of judges.

The competition's brief was to create a men's total look suitable for New York Fashion Week. Have a look at some before and after images of Richard, one of Salon Vie's clients who's kindly acted as a model for us. Hair and overall look is by Jane Byrne, makeup by Sarah Hughes and clothes by City Gate of Chester.

These are probably not the best photographs we have but the copyright on the submitted images is assigned to Redken so we haven't shown them here. The best of luck to Jane and her team.

March 2012 : Leap Into Action
The results are in for Salon Vie's Leap Into Action event, held on the 29th of February in aid of Cancer Research UK, and we're delighted to have raised a grand total of 705!! Our thanks to any clients who contributed, the Crewe and Nantwich Local Committee of Cancer Research UK and a special thanks to Julia and Rachel, beauty therapists who gave up their own time to join Salon Vie's team for the event.

February 2012 : Crewe Hall Wedding Fayre
In February, we were back at the lovely Crewe Hall and, for the first time at a wedding fayre, we had live demonstrations of the fabulous Lash Perfect eyelash extensions.

January 2012 : Wrenbury Hall Wedding Fayre
It seems like only a few weeks ago that we were at Wrenbury Hall wedding fayre but it's been a full twelve months! This time, we introduced Kim, our new beautician, and, as usual, provided hair and makeup services for the brides on the catwalk. You might be interested to know that three of the catwalk models are sisters.
