New From The Chimney House: Laundry for Hair.
Following on from The Chimney House is Laundry for Hair. Laundry stands as a independent brand but with the benefit of its Sheffield big sister, multi-award winning events specialist – The Chimney House.
Occupying the grand building of Arundel Street’s Sellers Wheel Laundry is a specialist collective of hair experts. Top of their game stylists led by Glen John Lewis and Chris Lock and a second to none technical team presented by Billie Mo Tredgett.
They are brought together as a team by Mitchell Wilson who is responsible for bringing the Toni&Guy brand to Sheffield and Chesterfield in the mid ’90′s.
Sally Clark owner of The Chimney House comments ‘we’re really proud to launch another new brand in Sheffield– the City feels buoyant and poised for adventure, Laundry is fresh and bold with plenty of bounce and we can’t wait to embrace the City’s current vibe’.
Mitchell comments ‘we’ve assembled an opening team whose skill sets are completely tuned into quality and the needs of today. What we do here is very relevant to the City. Everyone who works at Laundry has an advanced skill set and technical ability which allows us to offer a top notch service but at very competitive prices, we’ve selected the cream of the crop from Sheffield and London bringing into the City a fresh cycle of skill and innovation in approach’.
Linked in thought – The Chimney House and Laundry both take their interior vibe from the honest and interesting tales and history from reclaim and salvaged materials. The design team have used this as a platform and have taken the application of restoration, reclaim, salvage and heritage a whole jump further. The interior which has been crafted by award winning Sheffield agency 93ft and celebrates honest fabrics – rescued woods, smooth and cool to the touch concrete polished and buffed up, luxurious upholstering, exposed brick and iron wrought in Sheffield.
Tim Hubbard of 93ft comments ‘we have been very mindful of Sheffield in our design and build, everything in Laundry has been designed, made bespoke and fitted in Sheffield. Laundry has fuelled jobs over the past 9months calling on specialist artisans and skilled trade to craft the heart of Laundry’.
The brief of ‘comfortable luxury’ means Laundry is a place for both men and women to feel right at home and it also gives confidence. Mitchell comments ‘We are able to extend our term ‘comfortable luxury’ beyond our interior to our pricing structure giving a real luxe feel and amazing end result but comfortable prices.
Sally Clark comments ‘We are very proud of Laundry. The Chimney House has been an incredible way to show how we can deliver beautiful and unusual events for both meetings, weddings and private dining. Our brand has been adopted by thousands of people in this year alone. Laundry is a way of being able to extend our level of service by helping our guests look and feel fabulous in a City that is certainly looking and feeling the part’.

King of cool. Mitch was a leading name and shining star in the Toni&Guy brand. With the brand since 1991 and an indisputable trail-blazer for the group – he came to Sheffield in 1996 to head up their flagship store of the North. A creative, a visionary but humble as pie with razor sharp wit and naturally a keen business mind, makes Mitch as the head of Laundry a match made in hairdressing heaven.
Mitch’s policy on opening Laundry is that he is keen to open with a small select team of quality and passion – who also have strong links to the City and a reason to come home if travelling from afar.
