About Us

PHINIX Hair and Beauty was founded in 2010 by professional hair stylists and best friends Fiona Haydon and Nichola Jones.

First meeting at primary school, both friends went on to train with the prestigious Umberto Giannini. After achieving Regional L’Oréal colour trophy finalists twice, and gaining professional experience at a number of leading Midlands salons, the pals decided to go it alone and launch their own brand.

The PHINIX ethos is one loved by clients both old and new.

Professional, unrivalled service in a stylish, comfortable and friendly environment.

Fi
Co-founder/Director

Hi, I’m Fi, the Phi in Phinix!

Although it definitely doesn’t feel like it I have been hairdressing for over 20 years & am so fortunate to still absolutely love what I do & love even more that I do it alongside my best friend & fabulous team that we have created.

Although I have grown to love all aspects of hairdressing & love the variety of what we do, being a blonde I am super passionate about blondes & love foiling, creating anything from striking ash blondes to lower maintenance natural tones.

Hair condition has also become a huge part of what we do & looking after our clients hair comes of upmost importance & always strive to use the best products to help us achieve this.

I love helping people find what works best for them & low maintenance hair has become a big thing, there’s no better compliment than someone returning & minus roots their hair still looking great!

Our job has also progressed to beyond the hair & having people leave the salon feeling wonderful outside & in has to be one of the most rewarding parts of our job!

Nic
Co-founder/Director

I’m Nic, the other half of the Phinix Partnership.

I’m lucky enough to have been working alongside my best friend for almost 22 years now & still love everything about my job. What we have created, how we inspire each other & the wonderful team we work with.

Over that time span, I have developed a deep understanding of all hair types; natural texture and curly but still especially love short precision work & boy….do I love a color correction!

I’d say I’m creative, versatile & passionate, still!

I Just love all things Hair tailoring what needs to be done….to suit my clients needs….time & Budget.
