Style is a passion.

And for Grace Bowman, the owner of Boutique Hair Spa, the whole atmosphere of visiting her unique salon is fully focussed about making you feel fabulous.

Style, of course, comes in many different forms, and the Pierhead premises is the perfect place for a wide range of hair and beauty treatments - as well as added sparkle.

With an eye for extraordinary detail, and encouraging a positive and friendly vibe at all times, the salon has blossomed over the past five years under the management of the vivacious Grace Bowman. Starting with just three members of staff, Grace branched out in 2014 and now the stylish salon has 14 members of staff and is even undergoing a refurb allowing for four more styling areas.

"It is a cracking location," admits Grace, "and now everyone is following us to the coast including Co-op and Costa, but we were there well before them!

"I always think that it is not just a haircut, it is about the experience, and we want to make sure you really enjoy yourself and have a great time when you are here.

"There is a great buzz about the place and a lot of laughter."

"The five years have really flown by - we have done so much including being on the KMS team and all the top quality training it provides.

You just need to take a glance at the Boutique Hair Salon facebook page to see for yourself the amazing transformations that have taken place which could have come straight out of a glossy style magazine.

Boutique Hair Spa is open late into the evenings, and is also sometimes available on Sundays by appointment.

But it is more than just haircuts, it is the whole package including hair, nails, make-up and even head massages. Grace said: "We have everything under the one roof including a complimentary glass of prosecco, and it is always a great laugh.

"Lorna , who is seventy something, volunteers as 'Meet and greet' for everyone who visits, and she is an amazing asset to our team.
