Crafty Sparrow hairdressing lands in Nottingham On a cold wintery afternoon in Nottingham in 2012, walking around the former Sparrow Bagley & Sutcliffe building on Friar Lane in the city centre, Paul Tweddle realised he had found a home for his vision.
After 25 years of working in the hairdressing business, having owned a salon for 10 years and having been a problem shooter for a global hairdressing chain, Paul decided he wanted to take his experience and knowledge to create a unique independent hair salon. He wanted to build a business that was about more than just an amazing haircut and colour. He saw potential to create a place where art, events, interesting products and services and most of all people wanting great hair services came together to create a community of friends and customers - . Paul wanted a haven from the 9 to 5, somewhere for people to escape and relax.
“When I walked around the building for the first time I knew - I could see Nottingham Castle to my right, the heart of the city to the left, it had a vibe of somewhere special, where people would want to come and somewhere that could be at the heart of what I want to create”
Crafty Sparrow opened its doors in April. Residents of The Park in Nottingham are discovering this new place on their doorstep as they walk into work or go shopping. Visitors to the castle are intrigued by the unique and quirky window display that gives a glimpse of the creative future for this salon.
Crafty Sparrow wants to hear your opinion. Paul is keen to hear from customers (and newcomers) about products, services and events Crafty Sparrow could provide in the future. After conversations with customers and friends Crafty Sparrow is excited to announce a Reiki Room will be opening in the near future offering services including ‘metamorphic technique’ (more news coming soon).
