KH Hair Lichfield Celebrates 30 Years

The team at KH Hair Lichfield is gearing up for a ‘greener future’ while celebrating as the salon reaches a 30 year milestone in the city. 

KH Hair Lichfield

The award-winning salon, which opened in Market Street in 1992, has built up an enviable reputation for delivering excellent customer service from its talented and highly-experienced team. Run by salon directors, James Hill and Giles Fry, KH Hair Lichfield employs a team of 10, including original apprentice Donya Gardner, who, along with James and Giles, has been with the business from day one.

A greener future

James, who has worked on the BBC Clothes Show and Clothes Show Live, says he is proud of the salon’s heritage and 30-year success and is excited to be gearing up for a ‘greener future’.

As part of a strategy to become more sustainable, the KH Hair Group has partnered with Green Salon Collective (GSC) in a bid to increase recycling of waste and reduce pollution in the environment. “Working with GSC enables us to recycle items such as foil, colour tubes, and even hair,” explains James. “They provide us with separation kits for hair, metal, and chemicals, preventing them from going to landfill. They also allow almost every single piece of waste to be turned into something new.”

According to a study at Southampton University, 99% of salon foil ends up in landfill. By partnering with Green Salon Collective, 100% of the salon’s foil is recyclable. “We even recycle hair to make boom and mat projects. These could help to soak up oil spills in oceans across the world or for gardening and composting,” adds James.

A long-standing client says: “I have been a client of James’ since I was nine years old when my Mum, who is also still a client, took me . Now at 39, I take my  two daughters and we all enjoy the very friendly  and professional experience as much as ever.” 

Hard work and determination

The KH Hair Group founder was Mr. Keith Hall in 1920. From humble beginnings in a corner shop in Long Eaton, Mr Hall went on to grow a portfolio which today comprises 21 salons including a barber’s shop. The Franchise is run by managing director, Darren Messias from KH Hair’s Head Office in Long Eaton. This is also home to the company’s acclaimed Training Academy. Commenting on the milestone, he says: “We are all delighted that James, Giles and the team at our Lichfield salon are celebrating 30 successful years.  To be in business for this length of time takes a tremendous amount of hard work and determination, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank all the teams past and present and, of course, all our wonderful loyal clients for their support over the past three decades.” 

James adds: “We are one of the longest-running businesses in the whole of Lichfield, and Giles and I are enormously proud of our fantastic team who continue to deliver the best in customer service and hairdressing skills to our clients. We would like to say a massive thank you, both to our team and to our wonderful clients, many who have become great friends over the last 30 years. We couldn’t have done it without you, and here’s to the next 30!”
