Established in 2003, Utopia have gone from strength to strength as an award winning L’Oreal & Kerastase unisex salon. In 2012 we expanded to offer our clients hair and beauty services all under one roof. We offer our clients luxurious, tranquil surroundings in our Grade II Listed building and have a warm and welcoming team to give you a unique hair and beauty experience every time.
The Hair Team...
“Hairdressing is something I was born to do. My biggest passion is to give every client that individual styling service. 20 years on still having that drive to make my clients look and feel fab!”
Kim 'Nikki' Swarbrick
“I love nothing more than helping people to feel good about themselves whilst keeping their hair in the best possible condition. When I perform a technical service on a client, I always treat not only the hair but the client too and like nothing more than someone leaving us with a big smile on their face.”
“Claire joined Utopia March 2007, in her words ‘9 years, 1 week and 5 days ago… and counting!’ This really rather sums her up. Claires precision and attention to detail is second to non. Claire thrives off satisfied customers, working with excellent products and the odd glass of rose but not at the same time! According to her, she also loves working with a lovely team in a fab salon and no, we have not paid her to say this!”
Hannah Joined Utopia in August 2013, is now in the salon as our stylist! “I just knew that I wanted to something art based and creative, so here I am, hairdressing chose me and I love it. I especially love prom season with all the party hair.”
Ellie joined the team in July 2018, she said right from the first week of training she knew hairdressing was the career for her.
“Making people feel fabulous and looking their best makes my love for hairdressing even stronger! I love all areas of my job especially restyling and bouncy blow drys”
Yes, we can confirm she is the queen of the bouncy blow dry!!
“My enthusiasm and passion for hairdressing has grown stronger and stronger over the past 25 years. I welcome every client as a friend, not just a client, and knowing that they leave the salon feeling just a little bit fantastic puts a huge smile on my face, and thats why I still love my job.”
Hair by Emma Thomas
“I always wanted to play with hair as a little girl and loved my girls world! This is obviously where my passion comes from. Its funny that after all these years the love of the job never dies. I feel very blessed that I have had the opportunity to make people feel special about themselves.”
Hair by Emily
Emily has been doing hairdressing for 7 years now; she has completed her level 2 and 3. “I would describe myself as an outgoing and bubbly person. I am very enthusiastic and creative. I love to make clients feel great, by taking pride to create perfect individual styles.”
The Beauty Team...
Simply Sirens Nail Care
After using Calgel for the last 17 years on her own nails and being so impressed by the products, Nicki wanted to share her secret weapon to amazing looking nails and decided to qualify as a Calgel technician. “My goal is to make certain that ladies leave me feeling confident and happy with beautiful nails.”
Lcn Nails by Amy
“I have been a nail technician since 2004. I use Lcn on my clients for many reasons but the benefits are its a non porous product, stain resistant, a hard resin gel and cures in super quick time.”
Amy is always organised and super busy with her lovely family. She is always willing to please her clients, nail art, a bit of glitter whatever it takes.
Beauty by Rachel
“I have been a beauty therapist and nail technician since 2002 working in and around North Warwickshire, I then joined the Utopia team in May 2016. I love all aspects of beauty especially manicures, pedicures and waxing. In my spare time, I enjoy exercising and taking part of fun runs.”
Beauty by Leanne
“I became a Beauty therapist in 2006, I love all aspects of Beauty, meeting new people and seeing my clients leave the salon happy and relaxed after they have had a pamper. When I am not in the Salon I am with my family and children.”
Semi-permanent make up, acupuncture & massage
“I have worked in the health and beauty industry for more than five years. I was awarded a bachelors of science (BSc) with honours in Acupuncture at University of Lincoln, I was also given the opportunity to experience alternative approaches to health and wellbeing while travelling in Asia. Since my return to the UK I completed formal training in semi-permanent make up procedures at the highly renowned Tracie Giles IndelibeLiner Training Academy London.”
“Being a nurse Nurse Practitioner in a hospital is a completely different environment to working in a beauty salon, I enjoy it as it makes me see a different side to my job and get to see how happy people are once their treatment is complete, it really makes my job worthwhile.”
