About Tommy’s

Tommy's Hair Company was founded in Ruthin, North Wales by Tommy and Esther van der Veken, who are originally from the Netherlands, and have established themselves as the salon group to visit.

The success of Tommy's is that you can visit any one of our salons or stylists and enjoy a bespoke experience and a look you will adore.  From the second you pick up the phone and speak to our dedicated ‘Guest Experience’ Managers who will use our ‘perfect match’ consultation to find you the Stylist you will love, to the moment you leave the chair, our team will work to put the extra mile in your style!

Although each of our Salons is very different, they have been designed to provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere, embracing the ‘Tommy’s Experience’.  Whether you are visiting our Llandudno or Ruthin Salon for the latest in colouring fashion, or whether you want to relax with a replenishing treatment in the serene and boutique ‘appointment-only’ environment of our City Wall Chester Salon, we are renowned for providing our guests with the perfect salon experience.

Inspired by Tommy and Esther's Dutch heritage, you will know you are in the best hands.  Our commitment to salon excellence has seen us win the British Salon of the Year Award on five occasions, an achievement that makes us unique within the UK.

2005 saw the opening of Tommy's first salon, in a converted Mill House in the beautiful market town of Ruthin. A large and welcoming environment Tommy's Ruthin boasts a floating mezzanine floor with double height ceilings that radiate light and space. Three years later with the Ruthin salon thriving and the team growing Tommy's opened a second salon in the historical city of Chester. Tommy's Chester is a small and intimate boutique salon offering personalised service complete with a secret garden offering al fresco refreshments.

With an ever-growing reputation, Tommy's moved back to North Wales in 2011 to open a third salon. Situated in the fashionable seaside resort town of Llandudno, this salon is the largest Tommy's salon to date and has become extremely popular with the residents of North Wales. Housed over three floors Tommy's renovated the upper floors to accommodate Tommy’s Education Centre and a photographic studio fulfilling Tommy's ambition to offer training and creative opportunities to hairdressers across Wales.

With a plethora of award wins recognising their creative vision and successful business expertise, Tommy's have achieved a reputation as one of the most successful and exciting salon groups. Under the expert leadership of Tommy and Esther van der Veken, Tommy's have initiated their own modern Training facilities for hairdressers in the region, Model, Events, Design and PR & Marketing companies. Demonstrating that the Tommy’s Brand is about much, much more than just hair!  But don’t take our word for it, come and see for yourself!
