Hairdressing Family Raise Over £6,000 For Local Charities
Brighouse’s most famous hairdressing family, the Taylors, who own Taylors & Co and Edward & Co, raised over £6,000 for local charities, as they celebrated 100 years in business (6th April) with a party to end all parties!
The centenary event organised by brothers Gary and Jason Taylor, held at the Brighouse Party Venue, saw over 140 local residents come together for an evening of dinner, dancing and reminiscing, as the two salons celebrated being in business and serving the barnets of Brighouse for the past 100 years.
Commenting on the evening, Jason Taylor of Taylors & Co. said, “WOW, what a night it was. So many brilliant people all in the one room together celebrating not just our centenary but also was a fantastic place Brighouse is. Such a great community and to have helped us raise over £6,000 for charity is astounding. I’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came and supported us on the night.”
Continuing Gary of Edward & Co said, “Our aim was to raise just £2,000 for Martin House for seriously ill children and the cancer ward at St James’ Hospital, Leeds, but we managed to smash this target! I think we’re still buzzing from the party, and it was over a week ago!”
100 Years in Business
2019 marks 100 years in business for the Taylor family who own Taylors & Co and Edward & Co in Brighouse. The original family business, which was started by Edward Taylor in 1919, has grown over the century to provide training and employment to five generations of hairdressers. Today, Edward & Co is run by Gary & Heather Taylor with daughter, Annabelle, employed as a stylist; while Taylors & Co, the original family Salon, is owned by Jason Taylor.
Both salons pride themselves on delivering big city styles at local prices, with an emphasis on customer care and service. Alongside their traditional services, they also offer hair replacement pieces for clients who have experienced hair loss from cancer treatments, alopecia and illness.
