Reopening & Appointment Bookings

Following the announcement for a planned withdrawal from lockdown, we are feeling hopeful to reopen on 12 April ?.

 

As this date isn’t set in stone, we wanted to share with you how we are managing our appointment book.

 

When can I book an appointment?

Whilst we appreciate that many of you want to get that lockdown hair sorted, we are waiting for a definite reopening date from Boris before taking any bookings – it’s a big job to reorganise all the bookings should we not open on the 12th of April.

 

How we will prioritise appointments?

As before, clients with cancelled appointments due to the lockdown will be booked in first and given a few days to make any changes. Clients do not need to contact us, you will receive an SMS or email with all the details.

A few days later we will open our appointment book to everyone else with a new and improved online booking tool. If you want to be notified when we will be taking bookings, subscribe to our emails.

 

Is there a waitlist?

During the lockdown, we’ve put in place a new salon booking system, so no waitlist is needed this time around! Clients will be able to book all our services online and set up their own accounts to manage their appointments.

 

Keep in touch

As we get closer to reopening, stay up to date by subscribing to our email or text updates – simply complete the form below.

 

If you do have any questions whilst the salon is still closed, please contact us by email where possible or reach out to us via Facebook. Of course, we are available on 01706 217129, but it’s preferable if you can contact us online where possible.

 

Take care and we looking forward to seeing you soon.

Antony & Patricia celebrates 50 years in business

Source: Rossendale Free Press

A sparkling Sixties-style celebration to mark a business’s 50th anniversary raised more than £4,000 for three good causes.

It was in 1969 when Tony Winder and his then-wife Patricia opened Antony and Patricia’s Hair Salon in Rawtenstall, initially in premises on Newchurch Road.

Many visitors attending the celebration at The Whitaker, in Rawtenstall, entered into the spirit by dressing in 60s style clothing. More than 150 guests included actor Jane Horrocks, originally from Rossendale.

Horrocks, best known for Little Voice and her character Bubbles in Absolutely Fabulous, recounted her days modelling in one of Tony’s hair shows as a punk. Describing the salon as like a home from home, she said: I have very fond memories.

My mum also modelled in the shows and Tony would always do a demonstration of every generation of hair. To have a punk hairstyle in the show was fantastic for the Valley.

Antony & Patricia moved to the former laundrette premises in Bank Street in 1972 and the business has never stopped evolving, opening Bosun’s Barbers on the upper deck in 2016 and the hugely successful Noah’s Ark Children’s Salon in 2018.

Bosun’s Barbers arrives in port

We’ve gone back to our roots and opened a traditional barbershop located on the upper deck of Antony and Patricia. It reflects the history of our Director Tony Winder when in 1967 he went to sea as a cruise ship’s barber initially on the SS Southern Cross then SS Oriana when he circumnavigated the globe several times.

Tony sailed through the Panama Canal, got to be in Tonga on Independence Day, visited New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and all over the South Pacific & the Caribbean. Following on from this amazing experience he was ship’s barber on aircraft carrier HMS Eagle and HMS Raleigh and also spent two seasons as a camp barber at Butlins in Filey and Minehead.

Bosun's Barbers

Interior of Bosun’s Barbers

The barbershop opening also marks 47 in business. Since completing his training in 1962, Tony has been collecting barbershop memorabilia and his artefacts are finally on display inside Bosuns.

Come aboard and experience the nautical theme authentic ship’s windows converted into mirrors and lighting fixtures also originate from a ship. Relax into authentic barber chairs that are nearly 80 years old, which have been renovated and stripped down to the last nut and bolt. Outside the salon and barbershop, we have installed a renovated rare 1966 Dexter’s barber’s pole.

When we opened A&P in 1969 the barbershop and ladies hairdressers were separate, then in the late 70s unisex was the vogue and men and women would have their haircut, permed and highlighted sitting side by side. Returning to 2016, the beard and barbershop have seen a revival we’re pleased that the salon is going back to its roots and separating the two.

Carly Nicholas is an experienced barber who recently joined the team to oversee the barbershop and as expected she is excited to be barbering in such a unique salon. She brings with her over 11 years of ladies and gentlemen’s hairdressing skills, the latter four years working solely as a barber.

Bookings can be made by calling 01706 217129
