seanhanna Salon History
The very first seanhanna salon opened in 1981 in Worcester Park High Street. As a young and ambitious hairdresser, Sean was keen to develop a fashionable hair brand which at the time was bringing the ‘LONDON’ scene to the suburbs. With a view to growing and developing one of the UK’s leading hairdressing brands, Sean was completely passionate about training his growing team. Over the following three decades, Sean has created a defining salon brand which is respected world wide. Still as passionate today, Sean along with partner Skyler McDonald, is still personally involved in all aspects of the business, particularly training and education. The journey has seen Sean and many members of his team win hundreds of industry awards both for artistic and creative innovation alongside recognition for an ongoing excellent customer service.
The growing number of seanhanna signature cuts has helped to differentiate the seanhanna salons from their competition. These bespoke cuts, are designed by the seanhanna Creative Team with a view to bringing clients easy to manage, beautiful styles which can be personalised to them.
Sean says “Although the business has changed dramatically over the years, in a way it is still exactly the same. It’s quite simply about making people look and feel amazing. When we get that right, quite literally, the magic happens. And to see the smile on a happy client is as rewarding today as it was when we started back in 1981. I think one of the main reasons that we have been able to remain at the forefront of our industry is that we have always been able to attract and retain talented team with great attitudes and a commitment to caring for our clients. We’ve also been able to attract and retain a huge number of clients who have really helped us by continuing to recommend us to their friends and family. Many of our clients have been with us since we opened our first salon and I feel genuinely humbled and grateful for this.”
