A head start in looking good: Headhunters Hair and Beauty Specialists

After selling the very popular Cutting Shop in Antibes, an institution in the English community for over 20 years, sisters Nicky Hooper and Sally Ryder decided to go into partnership and so in mid-January 2014, they opened Headhunters, the hair and beauty specialists in Valbonne Village, just steps from the English Book Centre.

“It’s really important when it comes to hair or beauty,” Nicky tells the Reporter, “to explain exactly what you want without having to worry about ‘lost in translation’ disasters.”

HeadhuntersUsing L’Oreal, Kerastase and GHD brands, Nicky (centre) will be working with stylist Jean-Paul
while Sally will look after the beauty side

With the promise of one-on-one service in a luxurious setting, Nicky will get back to her first love of hairdressing (instead of managing a big business) while Sally will take on beauty therapy with the help of Dermalogica and OPI brands.

“We intend to stay small and our goal is to put all of our efforts into quality and not quantity. Our aim is to work mainly by appointment, in a relaxed atmosphere, taking time to listen to each client’s needs, discussing and finding ideas to ensure that every customer leaves with a boost in confidence that he or she is looking fabulous.”

Open Tuesday to Saturday, 9h to 18h, by appointment only. Call 04 92 98 14 27 or follow Headhunters Valbonne on Facebook.
