4th Birthday Celebrations

Donovan Hair & Beauty 4th Birthday Blog

Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate our 4th birthday here at Donovan Hair & Beauty, it was a full house and we hope you had as much fun as we did.

The evening was the perfect opportunity for our fabulous guests to have a good nosey around all the rooms we have and see what else we have to offer beyond hair.

For those visiting for the first time it was also a chance to meet the team and see what we’re all about and what we can offer you from our full range of beauty therapy treatments, hairdressing and styling.

Our experienced hairstylists were on hand creating beautiful waves and plaits and offering advice on how to get the best finish for your style.

Colour consultations were a popular stop for those looking for a hair makeover or something a little different as we head into the Winter months and of course the festive season.  As colour correction experts we pride ourselves on our consultations and giving the very best advice before booking clients for a colour change or correction.

Our amazing beauty therapists were also offering advice to those who wanted to know more about their skin and beauty routine, giving our guests the chance to try a range of mini treatments, as well as giving away our fabulous Elemis treat bags.


As one of the newest members of our team our resident reflexologist Sam was on hand to introduce herself and talk through the benefits of the treatment, while giving free foot massages; which kept her very busy all evening.


With semi-permanent make up being one of the newest additions to our treatment menu Claire from Contour Beauty Aesthetics was here offering consultations on semi-permanent make up and the best route to suit your desired results.


For those looking to take their beauty regime a little further Ben Coyle our in house doctor joined us to offer consultations and advice on the results that can be achieved by Injectables and Aesthetics.

What a great evening! 

The fizz was flowing and we had lots of mini treats happening to keep you all entertained from start to finish.


Thank you to all of those that took part in our very successful charity raffle for MIND supporting better mental health.  We gave away some fabulous hair and beauty prizes to you lucky lot.

Then to top it off after all this excitement we then found out that we had reached the finals of the Midland Beauty Industry Awards for Best Hair Styling Team for the East Midlands.  We couldn’t be prouder of how far our salon has come in the last 4 years.

Here’s to the next 4 years and beyond!


How We Do Hair at Donovan Hair and Beauty


Showing off our talents

I love days like today in the salon when there’s a real buzz of excitement, it really is why I do what I do and reignites the passion I have for hairdressing.

The atmosphere was electric as our models were lined up so that we could get to work on their new looks.  

Working in the shadows we had our fabulous Videographer Connor and fine art Photographer Laura shooting new video and photographic content for the all new Donovan Hair & Beauty website.

The New Look Donovan Hair and Beauty

With the recent changes at Donovan Hair & Beauty we wanted to showcase to our current clients and those thinking of stepping through the door the versatility of our stylists and what can be achieved within the boundaries set by you the client. 

From subtle cut and colours to the more dramatic and impactful, daring and bold we’ve tried to capture it all to inspire and show you just what we can do. 

We pride ourselves on the initial consultation so that you leave the salon every time totally happy with the look you envisaged.

Our Models and Fabulous Colours

I’d like to thank our models from today who are brilliant and so willing, giving us almost free reign and enabling us to show off our skills.  Also we have to give praise to the amazing colours we’ve been working with.  So Colour Cult is a fantastic new semi and demi colour enabling us as stylists to give you subtle flashes or all out statement colours that now last for weeks longer than any other colour available.

Part of the Matrix on trend colours there’s something for every client to drop in the salon and try something new and more vibrant for the Winter months ahead.

Our Mens Room

You may or may not know that we have a mens room upstairs at the salon with a wide variety of mens treatments.  Our beauty rooms also offer all clients numerous treatments from permanent make up, aesthetic and beauty treatments using our in house brand Elemis as well as nails and brows. 


We also hold workshops throughout the year giving you the skills to create a salon finished look at home in confidence.  From basic styling and waves to simple pin ups so you can try something new.

If you’re one of those Mums, Dads, Grans or Grandads who have girls or boys with amazing hair and want to know how to get the look for the everyday or maybe a dance show or up coming party we run children’s workshops for adults.  

These workshops enable you to style your child’s hair better from simple plaits to the perfect ponytail and beyond.

New Elemis Skincare Workshops

Aside from hair we have a new workshop for 2019 our Elemis DIY workshop giving you the knowledge to know your skin type and what it needs.  So you can leave with all the top tips on what your daily routine should look like for the best looking skin possible.

There’s so much more to come here at the salon and we’ll be blogging all about it so you can keep up to date with all the new treatments and techniques that are available to you so watch this space…..
