Its the worlds biggest coffee morning…

Posted September 9th, 2014 by admin with No Comments

imagesThe world’s biggest coffee morning is coming to Zeitgeist Hair on Friday 26th September, from 9.30 until 12. We’ll be having scrummy cakes and balloons decorating the salon. If you would like to take part we would love to see you at the salon so pop in and say hello, have some cake, tea and help raise some money for the wonderful Macmillan Cancer Support. Kaye has offered up her day off, so if you would like a scalp message, your hair put up in a dressing or a lesson on how to style it yourself, she will be on hand to help for donations to this great charity…


Woohoo… Amy will be off travelling soon, it’s a count down until Thursday 18th September and then she will be heading for South America, we will be excited to have her back on Thursday 4th December to hear all about her adventures. She sends everyone her best wishes and hopes to see you all in December!


Kaye is the latest Vidal Sassoon-trained stylist to join the Zeitgeist Team, and has made a fantastic start,

Highlights of Kaye’s long and very successful career include spells aboard various cruise ships, including the QE2, being part of Vidal Sassoon teams for boy band Take That and several prestigious fashion shows, and having her work published in a number of glossy magazines. Here is a snippet of Kaye’s work.

She has a great eye for detail and a real artist’s touch. Her clients – new and old – are in very safe hands.”

When Kaye is not cutting hair – a vocation she is passionate about – she enjoys modern jive dancing and organising charity events.

We would like to give a warm welcome to Isabelle who has just joined us as an apprentice! Isabelle has just come back from a gap year in Cairns, Australia where she worked as a hairdressing assistant. She will be with us in the salon five days a week and is looking forward to meeting all of our new and regular clients. Soon she will be looking for models starting with blow dries and one length trims. Unfortunately Isabelle cannot book existing clients. We hope you understand and will support us with this.


Following the great success of last years festival, the charming hilltop village of Heptonstall is decorating its streets to welcome musicians and entertainers in an exciting display of community spirit and fun for 2014. There will be a childrens parade in the style of ‘The Wizard of Oz’, craft and food stalls, music tents and perhaps a morris dancer or dozen. Please visit the website for more information http://heptonstall.org/2014/08/16/heptonstall-festival-2014/


Every year in September cultural buildings open their doors to the public to view the hidden and the unseen side of our cultural heritage. It is a national event with backstage peeks at theatres and museums, churches and much more. The Hebden Bridge Picture House will be opening their doors for tours and the chance to own a movie poster from their extensive archive.

One of the most enjoyable things you can do in life is have a great hair cut, and create the perfect playlist!

We are fortunate enough to listen to our favourite songs in the salon. Some of the latest additions are: Odessa by Caribou, Cirrus by Bonobo, and Kingfisher by PHOX. Karen has been enjoying Jack White and George Ezra. Amanda says “I don’t usually listen to whole albums, I just like one or two songs so I’ve picked my favourites and made the perfect playlist to last a whole day in the salon. A lot of my music inspiration comes from the alternative chart on iTunes and I especially love internet cult sensation TakeSomeCrime. I love his dance videos and the way he introduces amazing new music before it is available on iTunes if even at all. Kate’s choice… This summer I’ve been listening to music that I’ve come across at festivals as well as my regular favourites. Jonnie Common from Glasgow has been a favourite for me for the last three years when he’s played at Cloudstpotting,

Check him out on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZhN92EJTYtU  His music is best described as indie electronica I think…

At Beatherder this year, Jagwa Ma and Utah Saints were good for a dance. Two Man Ting from Bristol for chilled sunny afternoons, and you can catch Two Man Ting playing at the Puzzle Hall in Sowerby Bridge next month.

Steven James Adams originally The Broken Family Band then The Singing Adams and touring and has just released a new album as himself.

Finally Wooden Wand from America who are touring now and will be playing Hebden Bridge Masonic later in September.


In the salon the Stylists and Technicians have all been enjoying using the new Invisible Oil Primer. With such beautifully versatile properties, Infused with 6 featherlight oils, it softens, detangles, de-frizzes and protects against breakage, heat styling and UV damage. No other product offers so much…
