Hi, my name is Helen Tether and I am the Director and owner of Helen Tether Award winning hair. This is my 3rd salon and is situated on the outskirts of Halesowen. The salon sits on the side of Gorsty Hill. Pretty and small, the salon is perfect for a more intimate experience.
I've been hairdressing from the young age of 15. When I left school I did an apprenticeship in a local salon in Halesowen town centre called Hudson’s. I always knew I wanted to be known in the hairdressing industry; winning many awards from an early age.
After qualifying I moved on and worked in numerous salons until I was 24. At this age I decided to take the plunge and get my own salon! My first salon, Sensu, was situated in Kinver, a small village salon that soon got extended due to the very quick growth of clients. After three extensions I decided to come back into the town Centre where it all started. I took on the old Hudson's salon and opened up as Sensu.
In this time I have won four awards, two British and two International. All awards were for images shot with models from Britain and Berlin. At the height of my award-winning days I also spent a lot of time doing hair on Stage with an artistic team. This job role also took me up and down the country to train other stylists, as well as heading oversee to learn new treands. I'm also a Master Colour Expert, which means I have more knowledge about hair colour and I excel in colour correction and creative colouring.
At 30 I decided to close Sensu and take some time out, not only to revaluate things, but to start a family. After renting a chair in a salon I finally gave birth to my beautiful daughter at 35, and I then decided to open up another shop, but this time I wanted it to be different. I wanted the perfect life balance, so I only open three days a week.
Helen Tether Award Winning Hair is small, but beautifully decorated. Because of its size I've been able to really concentrate on all the little touches, as well as making you feel special and not just a number.

A brilliant experience from start to finish. Helen will listen to your ideas and develop them into the perfect look to suit you. The colours she uses are fantastic, my hair has never looked so healthy. The cut Helen did is excellent I'm so happy Helen is my hairdresser.
Absolutely wonderful experience Helen knew what my hair needed and performed a miracle with my hair. Absolutely thrilled and can't wait to continue the journey to achieving fantastic healthy looking hair. Thank you so much xxxx
Wow just amazing so professional from start to finish, if you want a good cut and a professional colour this is the place to go. Would not hesitate to recommend 5 stars. Best hairdresser I have ever been to. Helen sits and chats to you about what you want cut/colour etc and tells you if it will suit your face and hair type. When you leave you feel like you are on the catwalk. So good, cannot wait for my next appointment, thank you so much x KIMMY
Helen has cut and coloured my hair for the last six years and always does an amazing job. She provides a very personable experience while maintaining a professional and high quality service. I love how she doesn't keep my hair the same and gives me an "on trend" (and manageable!!) style each visit. My sister and husband have also had their hair cut and coloured by Helen for the last five years.....once you find a great hair stylist you don't let her go!
Helen did an amazing job in transforming my super dark hair to a silvery grey in a single sitting. I've gotten loads of compliments and I couldn't be happier!
