Hi my name is Sally, I am the founder of Crossgates Hair & Beauty, which was established 13 years ago, where I set up alongside my mums (Julie) business Crossgates Health (give her a follow) up at Settle, North Yorkshire.

This is where I first opened my own salon in 2009, then we expanded and moved to The Barn in Gargrave 10 years ago,and created a fabulous team of hairdressers and beauty therapists.

I am the salon owner here at Crossgates having over 14 year’s experience in the beauty industry working at various salons and spas before opening my own salon.

I am level 2 & 3 qualified Beauty Therapist, as well as a CACI consultant & Laser hair removal certified specialist.

I am passionate about my business, giving each one of my clients a bespoke experience when visiting the salon, I also believe if you are ambitious & driven enough your team members will follow.

I am very grateful for all your support throughout these years, my business wouldn’t be where it is today without you all. And I look forward to continuing to offer you all our fabulous services.

When you put the hard work and determination into to something you dream of it becomes true.

Never give up!

My motto is : “create the life you dream of”
