Dorset Hairdressing chain, Synergy, has expanded its portfolio of salons further with the introduction of a fourth outlet in Penn Hill, Poole.
Owners Steve and Colina Currell opened their original Poole High Street salon in 1995 and subsequently opened in Blandford in 2008, followed by Ashley Cross, Poole in 2011. Penn Hill, with its recent opening of vibrant restaurants and coffee shops, was deemed the natural next step for the growing hair brand.
Colina Currell says, “It is important for us as a company to spot opportunities and grab them with both hands. This new outlet gives us the chance to retain key staff by offering them appropriate positions across the group, and enables our client base to expand and enjoy the variety of services we can offer across the four salons. We are excited by the early response to the new Penn Hill salon, which is capturing an audience based further east of the conurbation than we’ve ever reached. We believe we sit comfortably amongst the other Penn Hill brands who are clearly thriving in this environment.”
The new salon is managed by Daniel Pryke, who joined Synergy Hairdressing in 2004 as a junior apprentice, before working his way through the ranks to become manager at Parr Street. Now one of the best creative stylists in the Synergy team, Dan is a Redken colour expert, a specialist in men’s styles and a ladies stylist.
The company’s collective experience is gained internationally from Australia and South Africa, as well as from London and across the UK. Significant investment is made in staff training and development and an ethos of ‘love, touch and understanding’, underpins the brand values of the organisation. A recent initiative inspired by a salon in New York has seen Synergy’s introduction of free hair cutting and styling for those suffering from cancer on the first Monday of every month in the Poole High Street salon.
