Luke Benson announces salon opening
Former London Hairdresser of the Year turned session stylist Luke Benson launched his inaugural salon in the picturesque market town of Berkhamsted on Friday September 8, 2023, with a party to celebrate packed with industry names, friends, family and clients.
Luke, who was recently named Global Ambassador for Keune, regularly works with some of the world’s biggest stars, including Billie Eilish, Roman Kemp, Joe Jonas, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Michelle Keegan, Louise, Anna Friel and Amy Jackson, creating iconic hair moments at the BRIT Awards and the James Bond premiere, as well as being stylist of choice for brands including Tom Ford, Miu Miu and Joshua Kane.
Luke Benson Hair specializes in cut and colour, styling and occasion hair drawing on Luke’s red carpet background, extensions, men’s hair and hair health.
The project’s designer is local company Consilio Interiors, who used sustainable materials to create Luke’s vision of a comprehensive hair and grooming experience for both men and women, using luxury brands in a relaxing environment that can accommodate education and photoshoots.
The salon features a cool, calming grey interior with a fun pop of pink in the bathroom and staff room, and is partnering with other local businesses to supply food and drink ensuring that clients get the best experience possible. From a quick blow dry to a maintenance trim or a cut and colour makeover, clients can be confident that they’re getting a London standard of service without leaving their town. SalonIQ offers a smooth booking service. Promising convenience without compromise, Luke’s profile and reputation will bring clients from Berkhamsted and beyond.
Luke says, “I’m really excited to have opened my first salon in my hometown, and to offer state-of-the-art hair services in a sustainable environment. As well as Keune, I’ve partnered with brands like Easydry towels (both these brands are B-Corp certified), and Leaf, the world’s first sustainable scissors who plant 10 trees for every pair sold.”
Jessica Nicholls, Marketing Manager at Sorbon Estates said “We are delighted to welcome Luke Benson Hair to Berkhamsted High Street. As a former London Hairdresser of the Year, and having worked with celebrities like Billie Eilish and Daisy Lowe, we know that his skills will be in demand. We are always keen to bring unique, desirable tenants and, as the Berkhamsted salon will be Luke’s first, we have no doubt he will receive a very warm welcome from customers in the town.”
