I LOVE Studio No.4

23 May 2018

A fresh haircut is something we all look forward to, whether we’re after a drastic change or a long-awaited revival of a current cut. At Studio No. 4 in Bramhall village, the pro hairdressers know how important a good ‘do can be. I Love Bramhall met up with owner and stylist Ali Brocklehurst to find out more.

Having ascended the stairs into Studio No. 4 you’re greeted with a friendly smile and the appealing aroma of scented candles. The modern yet relaxed decor echoes the salon’s uniquely cosy yet up-to-date style, as well as serving as a gorgeous background for before and after pics. Separated into three individual rooms – a reception with a comfy sofa and water boiler-turned-water fountain, a relaxing room for hair washing and colouring and the spacious styling area – the salon feels like a stylish yet chic retreat.

A level of privacy is achieved thanks to the Studio No. 4’s first-floor location, so while you can watch the world go by from a huge bay window, you’re also safe in the knowledge that people won’t be catching you mid-haircut, foils and all. Though the salon may be something of a hidden gem with its unassuming door on street level, the stylists’ level of expertise mean you will certainly be turning heads once you leave.

Ali, who specialises in balayage and other freehand techniques, is accompanied by colouring specialist Joanne and Greg, who specialises in cutting. The entire experience for customers is tailor-made according to individual needs and desires, including consultations prior to appointments to discuss styles, maintenance and prices. Studio No. 4’s six and 12-month plans give customers the opportunity to work towards their dream hair, with the consultants’ upfront and realistic advice meaning nobody is left with a hefty, unexpected price tag or a hairdo they don’t love. Everybody is different, so Studio No. 4 makes sure their hair styling is, too.

The exposed brick walls and copper pipes contrast with the glossy mirrors and potted plants in the main room, which is flooded with natural light from the stunning bay window. Ali says this window is actually one of the reasons she chose to set up shop in the Woodford Road location, along with her long-time love for Bramhall’s friendliness and community feel. Studio No. 4 wants to give back to the community as well, and despite having only set up earlier in 2018, will soon be participating in charity events such as an upcoming fashion show to raise vital funds for charity.

Ali’s clocked up 11 years of experience as a hairstylist in Cheadle Hulme and Didsbury and both Joanne and Greg have dedicated decades to honing their skills, so despite Studio No. 4’s trendiness, customers know that the salon has mastered traditional and timeless techniques alongside building their repertoire. The salon caters for men and women of all ages and while most clients are local, the salon warmly welcomes customers from Liverpool, Leeds and even Spain. Some high-profile guests also enjoy Studio No. 4’s services, such is the level of expertise on offer.

The salon’s social media photos speak for themselves in terms of the stunning hairstyles that are created here – the glowing results of each stylist’s experience and the high level of customer service that ensures clients return again and again. Gone are the days of sitting awkwardly on stools and getting it done with as quickly as possible; with freshly brewed coffee and tea, the latest tunes playing on a speaker and the friendliness and warmth of the stylists themselves, Studio No. 4 delivers an experience to truly enjoy.

For customers who also follow a holistic, health-orientated beauty regime there will shortly be a separate traditional beauty business opening above Studio No. 4 – so you can fulfil all your pampering needs without even having to leave the building. The salon aims to provide a service that clients not only enjoy, but trust – and judging by the number of regulars and their luscious locks, they are really hitting the mark!
