Sexton & Co, the Skipton-based hair, beauty and nail salon has a new owner.
Long-serving employee Emma Day, who began working at Sexton & Co 16 years ago, has taken over from founder Tom Sexton who has gone out to pursue a new career around his passion for horses.
Emma said: “I’m delighted to become the new owner of Sexton & Co – Tom presented me with a fantastic opportunity and I simply couldn’t say no!
“Sexton & Co has been established since December 2003 and has a large, loyal customer base. It’s also the only salon in the town to have the latest CACI Synergy machinery – offering a non-surgical face lift.
“I have a number of exciting plans for the business, but my first priority is to build on the salon’s beauty offering, extending its services and expanding the hairdressing team.”
Located in the medieval High Corn Mill, Sexton & Co offers a wide range of services including hair treatments, manicures and pedicures, bridal makeup, waxing and massages.
It employs a total of four members of staff; owner and hairdresser Emma Day, hairdresser Karen Cowens, nail technician Linda O’Hagan and beauty therapist Anne-Marie O’Hagan.
Situated in the heart of Skipton and just a stone’s throw away from the High Street, High Corn Mill has been an integral part of Skipton’s life for over 700 years with records dating back to 1310 and once formed part of the castle’s property. The mill’s offering for the 21st century is somewhat different to 700 years ago – educational fun and a selection of independent shops plus hair and beauty establishments.
