In our Business Spotlight this month we have a chat with Antony Popodic, owner of one of Bury’s longest-standing and most prestigious hair salon’s.
Antony Popodic’s career started at aged 18, after meeting a friend and admiring his hair colour and cut. With an instant gut feeling that this was the career for him, he immediately jumped on the bus to Manchester and convinced the salon owner to train him in the art of hairdressing.
His passion for hair, fashion and music fuelled his progression, which saw him opening his own salon Antony’s for Hair on Tithebarn Street just eight years later. Now his long-standing salon employs sixteen staff and trains students to work within the industry. Commenting on why he thinks his salon has stood the test of time for 30 years, Antony told Your Local BURY, “Our main focus has always been beautiful hair and customer service. We want the customer’s time within the salon to be in a lovely environment and make sure that even during these unprecedented times, that our customer always comes first. From being greeted by our receptionist, to our professional consultation given by our hair designers, we strive to make sure the customers have a wonderful experience and return to the salon again and again.”
Going forward Antony now spends more of his time with his online store where he supplies the finest quality luxury haircare brands and accessories. “I created Bohairmia after my customers always commented on the quality of products that we used within the salon. These products are not for sale in your local supermarket and we have sourced them straight from the manufacturer where possible so that customers can have the same luxury hair care regime from the comfort of their own home.”
