I opened my salon when I was 19! Young, ambitious and some might say stupid! I am not going to lie running a salon is hard especially with 4 children too, but I do it because its my life this is all I know and I love it.
I believe my way of hairdressing a little different from others and it started way back when I was training. I could never understand how within 2 minutes of meeting someone, some Stylists could make decisions about client’s hair. It just used to freak me out! Other Stylists would think I was mental haha! I was always be such a waff and I’d ask a million questions and go right round the world and then end up where I started but in my crazy head at least I then knew I was making the right decisions.
So as I gained confidence, experience and with that clients and I started to realise I was quite unique and for some reason clients liked me for my million questions, so it was then that I realised I wanted my salon and team to be different and if I could endorse my philosophy then we could make a real impact on the hairdressing world!
So my philosophy is based around YOU! Your hair belongs to YOU!! So the person that knows it best is YOU! NOT US, every single head of hair is completely different that’s what makes us individual. So I believe we need to learn about your hair from you and by communicating enough and effectively before we get the scissors out then the chances for you been thrilled with your hair is much higher. Hairstyles must not just suit your face (however that is massively important haha) it must suit your lifestyle, your personality, your hair texture, its condition and much more…. I could go on and on but what I’m trying to say is I don’t believe in rushing as its false economy, we as hair consultants need to understand “YOU” before we make decisions and then together with you we build beautiful relationships of trust, friendships oh and of course perfect hair for our clients.
Training this way has been challenging over the years as not everyone appreciated what I was trying to achieve but luckily for me my sidekicks Karen, Lyndsey and Emma have supported me and helped me make our service unique. I am so grateful for them helping me achieve what we have. We have a fantastic team now and we are growing from strength to strength and all of us embrace our philosophy to communicate with clients, its fantastic and I’m so proud.
One last thing, we are all proper Northern girl with Northern charm and we want our clients to be relaxed and comfortable so as well as high quality hairdressing and stylists that care, you will also expect to receive lots of salon fun and banter! Professional but 100% friendly that us!
Karen, aka “Kasbo” as we like to call her is our ND Legend! Working at Nancy Darcy Hairdressing for 15 years now, Karen Wright is an absolute asset to our team. It’s fair to say she lives and breathes ND as much as Beccy and that’s why she is her right hand lady.
Karen is our character and I say “our” because she definitely belongs to us. Karen keeps the whole salon amused with her endless stories and whitty remarks. She has an absolute talent at making everybody feel better, whether its clients, colleagues or just the delivery man! Her ability to cheer people up is amazing.
So that’s Karen’s personality and one of the reasons everybody loves coming to see her but the other reason is she a fantastic hairdresser and is actually the only hairdresser within the North East to hold a Wella Colour Degree!
Karen is a dab hand using placement to accentuate a cut, or selecting the right tones to accentuate skin and eye toning, or using colour to make a client feel better, but gaining the degree gave her the skills to understand why certain choices must be made and so she can therefore make the right choices. She understands why certain hair types need specific types of tones, and how to work not just with the client but also with the hair technically. Its Karen’s level of experience and degree knowledge is what makes her an expert in the field! Karen is the perfect partner for any client suffering from long-term colour problems, or anyone who never seems to get their colour just spot on. All of that and we can guarantee you will leave laughing!
Our gorgeous Emma is one of our proudest achievements! Training with us from the age of 16 we have watched her grow into a lovely young lady, a Mother and a amazing hairdresser. Its fair to say Emma has spent most of her life within the Nancy Darcy Team. She has worked tremendously hard for us over the years and we continue to be grateful for her dedication and loyalty.
Trained by Beccy she was a natural talent and gained confidence and clients quicker than we could imagine.From a young age Emma shown passion with colour.
Working side by side with Karen our colour degree specialist, Emma and Karen are like the perfect colour duo. Emma has a keen eye to placement and technique and knows exactly how to bring the most out of the hair using colour to accentuate the haircut. She is calm and careful that’s our Emma she listens carefully and gives her clients trust and leaves them instantly relaxed as well as perfect hair.
Lyndsey is as yet another ND Legend and another of Beccy's Sidekicks. Working with us for over 12 years. Another amazing character within our salon with the most dirty, infectious laugh you’ll ever hear! Between Karen and Lyndsey we provide constant entertainment of hilarious fun and stories! Its not just for the entertainment value why its worth coming too see Lyndsey she’s an amazing hairdresser with a beautiful personality, caring nature and always makes sure she goes that extra mile for her clients.
Day to day in the salon Lyndsey specialises in colour and cutting and has a keen eye for colour decisions and techniques but by the weekend transforms into the Wedding hair Guru that she is. As wedding specialist, Lyndsey brings a completely calming and friendly nature to your wedding day. With over 18 years experience in bridal hair, Lyndsey’s expertise goes far and beyond her technical abilities, with her eye for balance and attention to detail with veils, gowns and brides personality.
