The Hairven Story

Welcome to Hairven Hair & Beauty Salons in Nottingham

The Hairven StoryHairven is the product of a unique and truly heart-felt story…

The catalyst for Hairven’s inception began in 2009 when Wendy, mum-in-law and best friend to salon owner Collette, developed breast cancer.  Whilst undergoing chemotherapy it became apparent just how devastating hair loss could be. 

It seemed no salon would or could cater for Wendy’s needs and she felt very self-conscious and unconfident stepping into a salon looking the way she did.  Together, Collette and Wendy vowed to start a salon so that Wendy could be treated in style following chemotherapy.

Hairdressing was something Collette had always felt secretly passionate about and, coupled with being a successful accountant and project manager thinking of a change, she decided the time was right to do something completely different and so followed her heart.

In 2011 Wendy relapsed and it was clear she would not recover. They talked during those final days in hospital and Wendy made Collette promise to carry on and build the dream.

Sadly, Wendy passed away in December 2011 in the middle of the first salon build. The company name then became obvious and Hairven was conceived – even including a halo in the logo as a final nod to Wendy’s memory.
