The local support the GB Women’s Volleyball Team have received in Sheffield has been phenomenal and one of the perks for the girls has been complimentary haircuts and colours from the Wildes Group at their House of W Salon on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield. The partnership was established through the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce.
Jamie Crouch, Operations & Marketing Executive, explained, “The Olympics are the greatest show on earth so it’s fantastic to be involved in a team’s preparations, if only in a small way. We heard that various local organisations have rallied round to provide free products and services and we were delighted to do the same. It’s been amazing for the stylists to meet athletes who will be competing in the Olympics and we can’t wait to cheer them on.”
House of W have brought together some of the hottest talent in the industry who have created styles for some of the most prestigious names in cutting-edge fashion at New York Fashion Week. All stylists have a contemporary awareness of the hair, beauty and fashion industries, which is reflected in the chic and sumptuous environment of the House. The salon offers a luxurious and unique environment with on trend styles and expert advice.
For an unfunded team, a haircut & colour is an unaffordable luxury so the support we have received from the Wildes Group has been tremendous. GB setter Lucy Wicks commented “it was amazing to receive a full service even though they were doing it for free. I even had a conditioning treatment put on my hair. After a hard days training, some relaxing pampering time was just what I needed.”
We have all been really pleased with our new hairstyles and feel refreshed. GB Middle Blocker Ci Michel commented
“House of W salon is a top notch establishment! As soon as I walked through the doors I was impressed… not only is the salon itself beautiful and stylish, but the staff were unbelievably welcoming and even brought me a delicious pot of tea! And with such a convenient location on Ecclesall Road, I would recommend it to any of my friends!”
