About the employer

Associates was created in 2003, with a single stylist/manager with over 18 years worth of salon expertise and a loyal client base to follow. In no time Associates’ reputation grew and so did the team branching out in to make up and nails along the way. We have recently expanded even further thanks to a new wave of staff and clients from Derry’s department store. Each stylist has their own area of expertise including real hair extensions, colour/ colour correction and Asian hair to name only a few.
