Double Take Aveda hair salon has been inspired by 3 females – the first lady our salon represents is Sheila Duffett, Sheila is the mother and maternal Grandmother of the partners in the business. Diane & Charlotte. The very first pair of hairdressing scissors Charlotte had were given to her by her Nan, which Charlotte still has today.
Aveda are renowned for their cruelty free & natural plant derived products which make them an ideal choice for using on all hair types and are often chosen by those undergoing cancer treatments due to how gentle they are. Sadly, Sheila passed away from Cancer and is remembered with much love and admiration for her family values which has helped create the tranquil & welcoming environment Double Take presents.
The other two females that inspired the name of the Salon are Identical Twin Girls Missy and Gracie – daughters and Granddaughters of the business owner. When the Twins were born 7 years ago the development of a salon was put on hold until they started school, when you see the girls you always have to take a second look to see if you can spot who is who – which inspired the DOUBLE TAKE salon name.
We are a family run business and from the very start of the venture into the property in Hadleigh all three of us have put our heart and soul into creating a safe warm and tranquil environment to work in and more importantly to welcome our clients into.
Double Take Salon has remained the preferred choice for men and women who value great looks. Whether to achieve a sophisticated look or relaxed style, Hairdressers Hadleigh is committed to ensuring that customers are always satisfied and look their stylish best.
As Charlotte one of the co-owners has been In the hair industry since she was 15 she has been to many salons and worked with older team members that often dictated and were dismissive towards her. This clearly isn’t a good environment to work & grow in & often knocked her confidence. However her passion to help people look their best kept her fire burning.
Charlottes vision is to become a trainer within the industry one day and is determined to ensure our salon welcomes all levels of ability to encourage them to stay within the industry and fulfil their own potential - we are a very friendly salon and aim to focus on the individuals willingness to learn as opposed to the lack of experience or skill set they arrive with.
