a potted history

Paul Knights Hair Spa

Paul began his hairdressing career in 1988 at Vidal Sassoon in Manchester. It was this training that instilled a passion for precision, clean cuts and classical design as well as a desire to be challenged. Paul knew he wanted to create a business where, over time, he could develop his own unique band of hairdressing. Thus in 1999, Paul Knights Cutting Specialist, a bijou salon, opened for business.

After a couple of years, the salon needed to expanded and it became a busy operation that enabled two successful apprenticeships. Recognising the privilege of guiding new talent and the inspiration that this brings, in 2008 the business was expanded once again. Paul Knights Hair Spa provided an open, airy salon and incorporated an academy over three floors.
