From time to time we all need to retreat from the demands of everyday life. To escape the pressure; to relax and recharge.

Hooker & Young’s Hair Spa at The Serenity Spa is the ideal excuse to unwind from the outside World, a time and a place to spoil yourself.

With three salons already based around the Tyneside area, owner’s Gary Hooker & Michael Young were looking to make a statement with their flagship salon. A space to rejuvenate, to inspire both team members and clients and to reflect the Hooker & Young philosophy.

Set in the 37-acre Seaham Hall estate, their fourth salon offers a complete range of hair services including cutting, colouring, hair extensions, styling services and a range of exclusive hair indulgence rituals. The combination of natural and contemporary textures creates a haven of tranquillity. Delicate orchids, rich oak surroundings, glass roof and a soft cream leather VIP area adds to the intimate and luxurious surrounding created by Hooker & Young.

Relax body, mind and souls with the various treatments available at The Serenity Spa before taking the lift directly into the Hooker & Young salon based under a 50ft glass dome. Discuss your lifestyle and personal hair care needs with a member of the award winning Artistic Team who will advise the best hair indulgence ritual for your hair. Choose from numerous packages, such as the

It Takes Two package which includes a signature colour, luxury cut and blow dry, personalised hints and tips, lunch and champagne all with the exclusive use of the vip area, or invite friends and opt for the Party People ritual. This is available for 6 – 12 people and includes consultations champagne, canapés and demonstrations. All of the hair indulgence rituals go far beyond the services offered in a salon. They take clients into the core of the spa culture, offering clients a real taste of hair beauty - moisture soaks, head massage, hair treatments interspersed with beauty spa treatments.

Unveiled in February 2006, Hooker & Young’s Hair Spa was lunched in suitable style. Fashion shows, cocktails, canapés and celebrities were on the menu, but guests were more interested in the breath taking salon and surroundings. Opening at the start of a new year meant that Hooker & Young could focus a great deal of their attention on the salon spa before other duties and distractions kicked in. Inviting local and national, trade and consumer press into the spa is just one the measures Gary and Michael have personally taken on board since the launch.

Having been voted ‘Best Spa for Style’ by the Sunday Times and ‘Best UK Spa Retreat’ by Conde Nast Traveller, Gary & Michael believe it is essential to keep this prestige alive and always ensure either one of them, or a Senior Artistic Team member is available to meet clients and hold consultations. With the salon 75% utilised in less than 6 months of opening Hooker & Young are ensuring that there is a high level of client retention as well as appealing to new clients that are visiting The Serenity Spa for a one off.

The original proposal was to design a concept salon spa that echo’s the philosophy of the award-winning salon group; hairdressing should create glamorous, wearable hair whilst rejuvenating and energising, ensuring an absolute obsession with quality hairdressing. Pairing this with Gary and Michael’s vision has been a powerful combination; one that has gained much respect, exclusive titles and fans en route. One that can stand up against the leading spas across the World, and certainly one that Hooker & Young can be proud of.
