Little BigHeads says farewell to Wilmslow

Three become two for popular kids’ hairdressers

Children’s hairdressers Little BigHeads has shut its doors for the final time on Hawthorn Lane in Wilmslow.

The firm announced on Facebook: “It is with a very heavy heart that we are announcing that from Tuesday 5th September Little BigHeads will be leaving its premises in Hawthorn Lane, Wilmslow.”

 Its not the end of the line, however.

The firm still has two busy shops in Altrincham and Bramhall, where the team from its Wilmslow branch will be transferred, and they’ve promised to consider options for returning to the town in the future.

Explaining the decision, owner Sharon Dobson said: “We have seen many changes to our business over the last six years, most recently the addition of fitting and selling children's shoes.”

This has been a move which has proven popular with customers in Altrincham and Bramhall since the service was launched earlier in the year.

Sharon continued: “This growth in our business means that we require bigger premises than we originally started with, and sadly, the Wilmslow shop is not big enough for us to expand into children’s shoes.”

She added: “There are also other factors which we’ve had to take into consideration such as the ongoing upkeep and maintenance of the property and access to convenient parking.

“The parking issue is so important for our customers and something which is sadly proving more and more difficult in Wilmslow town centre.”

There will be no job losses as a result of the store’s closure, and children can continue to book in with their favourite team hairdresser at the two remaining branches.

Sharon said: “We absolutely love being in Wilmslow, the people are just wonderful and we feel very much part of the lovely town.

“In a perfect world we would love to stay, and simply move into bigger premises.

“However, at present there is no ideal unit available but we will of course keep looking and should a suitable space become available we will return, bigger and better than ever before!”

Customers who’ve booked with the salon after 5th September have been contacted personally by members of the Little Big Heads crew.

“This wasn’t a decision we’ve taken lightly,” Sharon concluded.

“We will truly miss having a presence in Wilmslow, but we really hope all of our wonderful customers will continue to use our services at our other shops.

“Thank you all for your support over the years and we really hope to be back in Wilmslow in the not too distant future.”

If you have any questions, customers are urged to contact Little BigHeads by emailing or you by calling the Bramhall shop on 0161 439 7953 or the Altrincham shop on 0161 941 4033.
