Tucked away in a leafy residential area off Torkington Road is the Hair Boutique. Owner Clare Ardern has over 20 years experience, gained in some of Cheshire's most prestigious salons.
Clare has recently completed renovations and wanted the salon to reflect her style and personality. She has created a light and airy space filled with individual design choices and is determined to make everyone feel very much at home.
Clare supplies a valuable service to village locals, giving them good honest hairdressing at competitive prices. The salon opens on Tuesdays until 8pm to appeal to the needs of commuters getting home late so they can benefit from a great local hairdresser but out of usual business hours.
Clare and her team aim to deliver a personalised style with exceptional service.
"I am very visual and passionate about things" says Clare "Especially when it comes to hair. It's fascinating the shapes you can make and how it completely transforms someone and the way they feel."

Costs / Pricing
A discretionary cost will be added to each client for PPE equipment that is required.
- The initial appointment after lockdown is lifted may be slightly higher, this is due to the extra time to sort out your needs and requirements.
- Colour services may incur extra costs, we will base it on the number of tubes of colour needed to recover the regrowth area.
- Colour corrections are based by consultations only. We can do this via video links if needed.
I know it’s not the service we normally would give but hopefully if we all cooperate we can resume our normal outstanding service we pride ourselves with as soon as possible.
We miss you all and look forward to hopefully seeing you all very soon.
