About Hobson & Holmes
How H&H Was Created
Andrew Hobson, a resident on the Westpark estate (Darlington) was inspired to create a business within the Westpark Village after speaking with local developers and town planners. It was clear to Andrew that all of the parties involved in creating Westpark and it’s unique environment were all striving for the same goal – a self-sufficient modern village.
Andrew looked at various businesses, however, decided that the ideal would be a contemporary stylish hair and beauty salon. The premises, the architect, the builder and an accountant were in place – the major missing aspect that was missing was a salon manager.
Andrew was introduced to Nick, who was working at management level within a busy high street salon group. Both Andrew and Nick quickly established a relationship and discovered that their vision were very similar on how the salon should look and how it should be run.
Soon after Andrew invited Nick to join the business as Creative Director and Hobson and Holmes was created.
