Our Journey

Tommy's Hair Company are five times winners of the British Salon of the Year Award. Founded in Ruthin, North Wales by Tommy and Esther van der Veken, who are originally from the Netherlands, Tommy's have established themselves as the salon group to visit.

2005 saw the opening of Tommy's first salon, in a converted Mill House in the beautiful market town of Ruthin. A large and welcoming environment Tommy's Ruthin boasts a unique water feature, floating mezzanine floor and also houses Tommy's in-house training Academy. Three years later with the Ruthin salon thriving and the team growing Tommy's opened a second salon in the historical city of Chester. Tommy's Chester is a small and intimate boutique salon offering personalised service complete with a secret garden offering al fresco refreshments. With an ever-growing reputation Tommy's moved back to North Wales in 2011 to open a third salon. Situated in the fashionable seaside resort town of Llandudno, this salon is the largest Tommy's salon to date and has become extremely popular with the residents of North Wales. Housed over three floors Tommy's are developing the upper floors to accommodate a training and photographic studio fulfilling Tommy's ambition to offer training and creative opportunities to hairdressers across Wales.

With a plethora of award wins recognising their creative vision and successful business expertise, Tommy's have achieved a reputation as one of the UK's most successful and exciting salon groups. Under the expert leadership of Tommy and Esther van der Veken, Tommy's have initiated their own in-house Training Academy, an Online Store, and Model, Events, Design PR & Marketing companies. Further increasing Tommy's brand across the country is Tommy's newly launched franchise programme. Through 'Tommy's Franchise' Tommy and Esther intend for Tommy's to become the UK's best loved prestige brand of styling salons with a network of up to 50 passionate franchisees by 2016.
