Q61 LAUNCHES SECOND SALON IN HARROGATE TOWN CENTRE
Q61, the award-winning, Yorkshire-based nail and beauty brand, which opened its first salon in Leeds city-centre in 2015, has launched its second nail and beauty salon in the heart of Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
Such A Success
Following on from the remarkable success of the brand’s first salon in central Leeds, Q61 Harrogate launched earlier this month, eagerly awaited by North Yorkshire customers keen to try out the distinctive beauty experience that Q61 has become synonymous with.
About The Salon
With a prime location on Harrogate’s bustling Albert Street, the dual-floor, 2,600sqft space is unique in both its approach to beauty and its offerings. In addition to its inspired and varied beauty service menu, which offers a wide range of beauty treatments including facials, hair removal, brows and lashes to both female and male clients, Q61 Harrogate boasts an entire floor dedicated to fashion-forward nail services. With an acutely on-trend nail treatment menu, that includes express, luxury and bespoke manicures and pedicures, as well as highly skilled nail art and personalised nail design, the salon’s nail bar is also home to a unique ‘colour runway,’ a bespoke-design nail station, featuring a carefully curated collection of colours. The nail station, which features a visual display of more than 150 nail shades that will be updated seasonally, is designed to reflect catwalk colour trends and is reflective of the trend-led focus of Q61 and its inspired service menus.
While beauty remains central to Q61’s offerings, Q61 Harrogate is conceptually a lifestyle salon, taking a uniquely holistic and all-encompassing approach to guaranteeing its customers an inimitable and superior salon experience, with every visit. Alongside Q61 Harrogate’s experiential beauty offerings, the salon space boasts a deluxe coffee bar (available to customers and non-customers), which offers a wide variety of specialist coffees, freshly brewed teas, herbal teas and delicious biscuits. With an unwavering commitment to client care, and a firm emphasis on delivering on clients’ needs, Q61 Harrogate also boasts a unique set of baby-friendly features, designed specifically to appeal to mums. As well as a designated ‘pram parking’ area, the deluxe salon features a private feeding room to give mums on the move a discreet, comfortable and relaxing space to tend to their babies and children’s needs. As part of the salon’s drive to make beauty and pampering easily accessible to new mums, the salon will also offer a selection of appointment times when mothers are free to bring along their baby or toddler to their beauty appointment. This unique service is just one example of how inspired, innovative and client-centric the offerings at Q61 Harrogate will be.
While beauty is the essence of Q61, the Yorkshire beauty brand also has a strong fashion focus, which is evident as soon as you step foot inside its plush new Harrogate salon. With its stylishly designed interior, bang on-trend beauty service menu and its nail bar’s fashion-focused colour runway, the fashion-forward approach of Q61 is immediately unmistakable. The addition of glamorous coffee table books and high fashion magazines throughout the waiting area, and a constant stream of video footage of fashion shows projected on to the salon’s minimalistic white walls, serve as a further reminder that Q61 is a multi-dimensional beauty brand with a directional approach and a finger firmly on fashion’s pulse.
Unique Beauty Experience
It’s easy to see why Q61, although a relative newcomer to the beauty scene, is a brand that has quickly earned a cult-like following amongst its clientele and why it has already fashioned itself an elite status on the Yorkshire beauty circuit. It’s also easy to see why the launch of Q61 Harrogate was so hotly anticipated. As Q61 co-directors, Michael and Helena Linsky explain: “Our aim at Q61 is to bring together all the best bits from the world’s top salons, and provide our Yorkshire clientele with a unique beauty experience that they won’t find anywhere else. While beauty remains the DNA of our brand, it’s our commitment to creating an entire experience – one that puts the customer at the forefront of everything we do – that really sets us apart. With its unique salon features and appealing lifestyle-focus we hope that Q61 Harrogate will follow on the success of Q61 Leeds, with our aim to roll out this business model in other affluent areas of the North of England and beyond.”
