Visit Helmsley's "Featured Business"
Viva Hair of Helmsley offers a wide range of friendly and professional services for all the family.

We use WELLA products for our technical procedures and sell a huge range of retail products that you can take away and use at home to create that "salon" look. Owner Mandy Silk runs the business with her dedicated team of stylists and she works in the salon on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Manageress Kirsty has been with the team for 12 years after coming on work experience from school. Kirsty has an amazing talent with hair and after completing her apprenticeship went on to become a tutor and assessor at York College, whilst working part-time in the salon. She now works full-time, Monday to Friday.

Mary is our most experienced senior stylist and has been with us since 1985. She has a great knowledge and dedication to the job, resulting in a long list of loyal clients. Mary works on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Lesley, who retrained in hairdressing after a career in nursing, has built up a good client base and is a very valuable member of the team. Lesley works Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

We would also like to welcome Chloe as our new apprentice.

Special Introductory Offer:
Blow dry or shampoo & set for £5 with Chloe.
This is offered under full supervision from a Senior member of staff.
Subject to availability. Wed-Sat only.

Britain's Top 20 Best Places to Raise a Family
Helmsley has featured in the Daily Telegraph, in a secion focussed on the Top 20 Places to Raise a Family in Britain. Helmsley came in at Number 11, which is a fantasic advert for the town. Skipton came in at number 8 and no other Yorkshire locations featured in the Top 20!

See the article here.

The article says, "The market town of Helmsley has a recently opened, proper, old-fashioned sweet shop, with row upon row of jars filled with all the old favourites,” explains Ben Pridden of Savills York. If you are reluctant to see your offspring stuffing themselves with humbugs and liquorice allsorts, there are plenty of alternative attractions. Try the riding school in the grounds of the Duncombe Park Estate, or the doll’s house collection at Nunnington Hall. The surrounding moors are ripe for roaming, too."

Lost Sheep in Pink Jerseys

What is it?
Lost Sheep in Pink Jerseys is a fun challenge, for visitors to the North York Moors. Take a new or longer look at this beautiful area. Whether you are local or from further afield, we want to encourage you to slow down, explore and stay longer. The pink jerseys relate to the heather on the Moors.

Lost Sheep is Simple:
Visitors are asked to spot at least three "lost sheep" around the North York Moors and coastal area, enter the details online with a chance to win a large selection of prizes. You can enter as many times as you like, so try hard to spot as many sheep as you can in different places.

The Lost Sheep will be on show from 20th June - 20th September 2014.
