New ‘Hair extension’ at Penrith Hair Salon – Brockles

The Hair By Brockles Team: Amanda Jennings, Barbara Slater, Robyn and Jo Baglee with Vanessa Moffat seated

The team at Brockles Hair and Beauty Salon in Penrith has welcomed a new Senior Stylist – extending the personal experience they offer clients. Vanessa Moffat, who has over thirty years in the hairdressing business, is now working alongside the four other Senior Stylists.

Vanessa previously owned and ran Vision Hair Studio. She began her styling career at the age of seventeen and opened her own salon at twenty four. Working as a self-employed stylist gave her the flexibility to adapt as family commitments changed.

After a short break from hairdressing, Vanessa has recently sharpened her scissors with fresh training in Glasgow at the Vidal Sassoon Glasgow Academy.

Commenting on what she learned, Vanessa said “It was very empowering and a real confidence boost to know I still have great skill with scissors, but for me, it was an amazing experience that reminded me just how much I love cutting hair.”

Vanessa was encouraged by her family to ‘take a chair’ a Brockles – a salon that has been open for over 30 years.

The ‘Hair By Brockles’ team said “At Brockles we’re all on the same wave length and we’re very real people with plenty of experience. Being self-employed means, we take a chair at the salon – so our reputations really matter. It’s fantastic to have Vanessa join our ‘Hair by Brockles’ team – she has such energy and passion and fits in so well with everyone.”

Vanessa said “When you work alongside others you are constantly training, contributing new ideas and discussing product benefits. I have missed that – and the camaraderie of working with a like-minded group of Senior Stylists.

“I’ve known some of the team for many years and I really like the fact that we all want to give our clients really great haircuts and a relaxing experience. We’re tucked out of the way, so they get time to relax properly and they get one to one attention too. It’s been said it feels like a SPA experience for hair!

“I’m really excited to welcome back some of my old clients as well as meeting new ones and I like being able to try new products too.”

The salon is at Bishop Yards, Penrith (next to St Andrew’s Church). Anyone wanting to book an appointment with Vanessa or any of the team at Hair By Brockles, should call 01768 864943. For more information visit or visit their face book page Brockles Hair and Beauty .
