Welcome to the April edition of the Zeitgeist Hair salon newsletter.
We are really happy and looking forward to welcoming one of our star stylists back to the salon. Karen is returning from the hazy days and nights of maternity leave on the 25th of April. On her return she is offering £5 off to all of her existing clients on a cut and finish to say a big thank you for welcoming Leo and a kind gesture for your loyalty in returning after her maternity leave. This will be running from her return date on the 25th April to the 31st of May.
During The Easter Holidays we are closed on Easter Sunday but we do still have some appointments with colour technician Becky and stylist Amy on Good Friday. Please call to book on 01422 844974 or book online atzeitgeisthair.com.

Classic movie A Boy, a Girl and a Bike, and this summer’s Tour de France, were the inspiration for a very special photoshoot in Hebden Bridge. The 1949 film, which stars Honor Blackman and Diana Dors and features many Yorkshire beauty spots, was the starting point for the collaboration between local businesses, including Zeitgeist hair salon, Hat Therapy, jeweller Rachel Lucie and boutiques Amelia and Dynamite. Deborah Wilkinson, of Zeitgeist Hair, said the kind weather had resulted in a series of stunning shots. “We had a marvellous day and people’s reactions were fabulous,” she said. “We managed to re-create some classic scenes, but with our own, modern and quirkily Hebden Bridge slant.”
Backdrops included the steps of Hebden Bridge Picture House, the Crown Street chippy, the Milk Bar, the station waiting room and Blazing Saddles bike shop. Chrissie King, milliner and owner of Hat Therapy, Market Street, said the project was a perfect example of the creativity and friendliness of Hebden Bridge businesses. “We put our heads and talents together and came up with something really fun and relevant,” she said. “It was a great way to celebrate this summer’s cycling theme and the images are superb.” The photographs will be on display in some of the shops which took part, as well as on the businesses’ own websites. The photographer was Shelly Mantovani of Toast Photography, Leeds, and the models were Eve Ferguson, Florence Hutchinson, and Jacob Jones, all of Hebden Bridge. Their hair was coloured by Kellie Robinson, the latest Vidal Sassoon-trained expert to join the exclusive Zeitgeist team. “We had an absolute ball,” said Eve, “and we hope this shines through in the images we created. Roll on the Tour de France!”

For the Hebden Bridge arts festival Cragg Vale hosted a most unusual event in which a grand piano was hoisted up the steep incline by a collective of enthusiastic cyclists. Local photographer Sarah Mason said
“This is going to be a fantastic event, and I’m chuffed to be taking photos of it!” The Grand Departs are part of #TheYorkshireFestival and the pedalling started in Mytholmroyd with lots of good stuff going on at St Michael’s beforehand and on route to the top of that hill!
