After forging a friendship at one of Boltons top salons they decided to join forces and look into opening their very own salon.


After some careful research they decided on the area of Bromley Cross, a desirable area with easy access just to the north of Bolton. Their research alerted them to the established hair salon Hot Chix which was on the market for sale with RTA.

The salon had been trading for 4 years, had a regular client base and was perfect for what Gemma and Ruby Jo were looking for - who themselves had an established client base to expand upon.


Quite a few changes were made to the salon and this was definitely a time for all hands on deck. Walls were coming down in places and being put up in others. The hot pink and zebra-print fabric was replaced with a fresh white & grey colour scheme on the walls which now accommodate beautiful artwork that has been incorporated into the business logo. New flooring with bespoke sections were installed throughout the salon and Escape Hairdessing & Beauty was born.


In the 15 months since purchasing the business the girls have achieved a very credible status in the surrounding areas and have expanded on the services and product range. They now offer a vast range of Hairdressing, Beauty & Aesthetic treatments using the best products available on the market; L’Oreal Professionnel, Neal & Wolfe, Dermalogica, Shellac, and Minx to name a few.


They put their initial success down to the hard work of their team, the product range, and their fantastic salon.
