About us

Alan started his hairdressing apprenticeship in the late 70's in the neighbouring village of Scotby. In 1983 Alan went on to run his own salon at Tavistock House, Wetheral (Now the Posting Pot Cafe) as well as running a busy salon and having a young family he also taught Hairdressing at Carlisle College.

In 2001 Tavistock House was sold and Alan's Hairdressing relocated up the road to The Old School house and after being the 'Saturday girl' for 10 years his eldest daughter Paula started working with him full time. 2014 The Old School House was also sold to make way for new housing and Alan's moved into the brand new Wetheral Village Community Hall.

Alan's Hairdressing is now on the fist floor of the hall it is a large bright salon and has stunning views of the surrounding area. The salon shares the building with other businesses and groups which creates a lovely sense of community. 2019 Paula took over the business and Alan took a step back to spend time with his family and enjoy semi retirement and so the story continues........
