Dominique Director

Since beginning her career in hairdressing, it has been Dominique’s dream to open a sassy salon surrounded by amazing people, from her fabulous team right the way through to her wonderful guests. Having previously worked and trained in London with two of the top salons, The Painted Lady (Shoreditch) and Billy & Bo (Soho), she headed to Lancashire to set up The Blonde & The Bears in 2016. As we’ve grown and our team has expanded, Dominique still loves nothing more than working on people’s hair and getting to know everyone who comes through the door.

Leah Self employed stylist

Having trained with Toni & Guy and Gina Conway’s Aveda Hair Salon, Leah is a highly skilled hair stylist and beloved part of our team. Always keen to expand her knowledge of the latest trends and high-end styling, Leah works at London and New York annual fashion weeks, busying herself with session styling and fashion shoots to keep up to date with the latest trends. Although she loves to travel, Leah’s feet are firmly on the ground, always returning to the salon floor with genuine care for all her guests.

“Well deserved 5 star rating for The Blonde and The Bears. The salon is not exactly local to me, but I feel it is definitely worth the journey, they just seem to put that little extra effort into everything they do…All the stylists are amazing, super talented and genuinely care that you are happy with your hair.”
