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.
