FretwellBennett – The Flagship Aveda Salon in Manchester City Centre

Aveda is one of the hairdressing industry’s leading brands recognised for its ethical approach and ethos. FretwellBennett‘s City Centre Aveda Salon is the premier location to fully experience the Aveda brand in its entirety.

Aveda was a natural choice for Fretwell Bennett, as the brand values mirror ours so incredibly well. Aveda value professionalism, integrity, ethics and the idea of connecting beauty, environment and well-being. Hair expertise is at the core of what FretwellBennett stand for – but the ‘Aveda experience’ is what enhances our client’s visit. As a brand in its own right, Aveda has a massive following.

I have finally found a stylist who listens to what I want and gives me the cut I asked for. The whole experience was refreshing and enjoyable. I will definitely return for future cuts and treatments, and I will be recommending this salon to my friends and family

I'm very thankful for the interest in making me happy with my hair. They really wanted my opinion and did everything possible to please me, with patience and good will. I recommend the salon because it's not usual such kindness and professionalism. I think they are trustworthy, so I'll come back. Thanks to Rosie in particular who cut my hair off.
