Salon is celebrating its 60th anniversary in the town

The team at KH Hair Ilkeston is celebrating as the salon reaches a 60-year milestone in the town.
The award-winning salon opened on the first floor of No.28 South Street in 1964 under its original name, Keith Hall Hairdressing. Forty-eight years later, in 2012, it has expanded into the old butcher’s shop underneath, making it more accessible to its ever-growing clientele.
Today, the busy salon is run by director, Anna Hartgrove, who began her career as a 15-year-old KH Hair apprentice in 1993. After completing three years of training and gaining NVQ level 2 and 3, Anna became a fully-qualified stylist, quickly moving up the ranks to salon manager, before becoming joint director with Sheila Mumford in 2003. When Sheila retired in October 2004 and moved abroad to live her happily ever after, Anna eagerly took over the reins as sole director.
Anna says she’s really proud of her hard-working team, who produce amazing hair day in, day out. “I am really lucky that each and every one of my team is as committed to the success of the salon as I am,” she says. “Some of them have been here even longer than I have! In 2022, we said goodbye to Maureen Langton who had served KH Hair for an incredible 54 years as a stylist, and later a receptionist, before heading off to enjoy her well-earned retirement. The current team includes Judith, who has been with us for 37 years and Alex who is catching her up with 36 years. Everyone always ensures our clients are receiving the very best in customer service and take a real pride in their work in the salon.
“Of course, we are all immensely grateful to our loyal clientele too,” she adds. “Some of them have been coming since Mr Keith Hall MBE opened the salon door in 1964. This is a testament to our staff and the relationships they have built up with our clients, without whom, we would not be celebrating this notable milestone.”
