Dominique Director

Since beginning her career in hairdressing, it has been Dominique’s dream to open a sassy salon surrounded by amazing people, from her fabulous team right the way through to her wonderful guests. Having previously worked and trained in London with two of the top salons, The Painted Lady (Shoreditch) and Billy & Bo (Soho), she headed to Lancashire to set up The Blonde & The Bears in 2016. As we’ve grown and our team has expanded, Dominique still loves nothing more than working on people’s hair and getting to know everyone who comes through the door.
