They have only moved into the building next door, but stepping into the new reception area, you would be mistaken for thinking you were entering a sleek NYC boutique salon. A lot of thought and careful planning has gone into every tiny detail over the past 18 months, as the DKY team has executed their vision. The new salon boasts an impressive 17 seats – that’s 7 more than when they first opened in 2010 and 5 more than last week! They have also joined forces with Nadene Winters Ashe, owner of beYOUtifi beauty salon, which is right above DKY and a wonderful added extra for clients to avail of.
On Saturday 21st November, friends, family and clients joined the team to celebrate in style. They relaxed with glasses of fizz and canapés and enjoyed the surroundings of the new salon. As part of the evening, there was a fantastic ballot to raise money for Second Hope Charity – the only UK charity specifically for people living with advanced breast cancer. The list of prizes up for grabs was nothing short of a hair enthusiast’s dream, with a year’s FREE hair-care from DKY as the top prize, followed by endless specialist treatments, top of the range hair products, vouchers and much more. Belfast author and comedienne, Leesa Harker, joined the evening to represent Second Hope and to draw the winners of the ballot. Leesa is the creator of the hilarious character, Maggie Muff from her debut book, Fifty Shades of Red, White & Blue. The DKY crowd did not disappoint, digging deep and donating a total £681 for the cause. Northern Ireland representative for the charity, Mel Kennedy, explained that the money raised will go towards a bigger project dedicated to researching advanced breast cancer and potential treatments.
Michelle Young, salon owner said “DKY Hair Company has gone from strength to strength over the last 5 years. We are so proud of what we have achieved as a team and extremely grateful to the people of Bangor for welcoming us into their town so graciously.”
