So where does PJ come from exactly? What's the story?
Danielle our Founder started her Hairdressing Career back in 2003 as a young 13 year old Saturday girl in her local salon. She grew a quick and keen interest, not only in the craft itself, but the business side of operations. She left school & moved onto an apprenticeship in both her Level 2 & 3 NVQ Qualifications. Then moving onto Stylist & Senior Stylist positions in a variety of different salon environments.
She met James, her now Fiancé, in the Summer of 2012. They shared a keen interest for the same aspects of the industry & opened their 1st salon Dani & Co in Bolton, Greater Manchester in 2014. In 2015 James qualified as a Senior Barber.
Late 2015 they welcomed the arrival of their daughter Penelope and closed the salon January 2016.
Moving back to Danielle's home town of Preston the rebuild what you see today from the ground up. Danielle opened Penelope James Hair & Beauty salon in Farington, Leyland in May 2017 and before they knew it they had to grow into an bigger premises due to the growth of both business.
James now owns & runs PJ Barbershop located above Penelope James Hair, that Danielle now owns & runs located also on Towngate, Leyland.
We are now situated in a 2 Storey Building in the heart of Leyland, Lancashire that we renovated in the early months on 2021.
The surroundings within the Salon & Barbershop building, are a real mix of a current and contemporary vibe, meeting the beautiful original features on the building. Creating something organic, original and authentic that our clients can enjoy.
They are growing a successful & reputable company to hopefully, someday, pass onto their daughter, Penelope.
