Red Angel was first established in 2010 in Altrincham, opened by Haydn Adkins and expanded within 12 months to two salons.
Having originally been a MAHOGANY salon, the space was already developed to a high standard, all it needed was a few personal touches and a splash of colour to create the new space. Being located in Manchester city centre was also a big plus due to the amount of passing trade.
‘Apart from a desire to expand the business, we wanted to take our Style Station concept and our ethos into Manchester. Our focus is on quality hairdressing coupled with good customer care in a friendly and approachable environment.’

- Have a theme in mind
- Consider your target audience when designing your image
