Opening a salon in today’s economy was to be a risky throw of the dice for local man Patrick Murdock when he decided to fulfil his dream of owning a luxury hair salon in his home town, but since 2015 Patrick’s dream of bringing affordable luxury to the masses has been alive and kicking in Crossgar with the beautifully presented HAIR BAR.
Patrick says “After working all of my professional life in renowned salons across the UK I always wanted to give the premium service with a not so premium price tag, my driver for the business was always my love of making people feel beautiful and the prices that can be charged for this never sat well with me so I decided one year ago to unleash my vision of affordable luxury to the people of my home town in Crossgar. Since opening HAIR BAR has increased employability in the area, provided external staff training, promoted two members of staff, tripled its customer’s appointment availability, had two refits and now open late night Thursday and Friday until 8pm. That should be enough in one year for anyone but we continue to expand now offering make-up!
“It is very easy for me to say thank you from us all at HAIR BAR but I want to be clear that there is a team behind me who keep the machine moving forward and they are my staff at HAIR BAR – they get my dream and for that I am forever grateful, as our customers now understand ‘Our house is your house’ so on behalf of us all at HAIR BAR we thank you for living our dream since 2015 and being such loyal and fun customers.”
Blow-dries and Styling
Love the colour, Patrick did my hair, was no hassle and in and out in no time! Definitely ruined me for any other hairdressers!
Too many good things to say... this place people is just amazing!
Sorry I can't remember the stylists name, but I am absolutely delighted with my hair. She gave me exactly what I asked for. Amazing results!
Having just moved to the area, I booked an appointment at the Hair Bar after recommendation from a friend. I am so pleased, Louise really listened to what I wanted - and I have an amazing cut and highlights. Thank you.
