Nicki Boswell - Salon Manager/Owner

I have been in the hairdressing industry for 13 years, beginning training in 2007 with an apprenticeship though Leek College & moving forward to complete MUA training at Stockport college in 2014.

Through the years I’ve gained experience working on an employed basis in a salon, renting a chair, co-owning a salon & moving forward to solely owning The VenU.

Whilst being passionate about the entire hairdressing industry, my passion really lies in bridal and special occasion hair, with vast experience gathered through many weddings over the years. After discovering the passion for bridal hair quite early on in my career, I wanted to expand my skill set to offer my bridal clients the complete package. So, I decided to undertake an intense two-year makeup course where I learnt amazing techniques for achieving the perfect make up for all skin types.

Outside of work, I have 2 beautiful girls and an amazing husband. We enjoy precious family time together on days out to wildlife centres or parks or even days in. I also have a fabulous group of long-standing friends, that have supported me through my personal and professional journey.

I am extremely proud of my team here at The VenU, we have developed a family like bond which has created a relaxed, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere for all new and existing clients.


Georgia - Beauty Therapist

    I've been a qualified beauty therapist for 5 years. I specialise in all beauty treatments from waxing, spray tans, nails and eyelash extensions. I am passionate about what I do and strive to offer new and improved techniques to ensure you are 100% happy with the end finish. Eyelashes are my absolute passion as I love seeing the transformation. I love working at the Venu, it's my second home and the girls are all amazing.


    Martha - Senior Stylist

      I've been a qualified hairdresser for 6 years and couldn't see myself doing anything else. I love making my client feel and look fabulous, from colouring, cutting, blow drying and styling. I spend most of my waking hours in the salon doing what I love, having a laugh and catch up with all my amazing clients. I give each and every client the best professional and personal experience each and every time. I couldn't ask for a better team to work with here at the VenU.


      Emily - Hair Extension Technician

        I have been hairdressing for 10 years as well as my 5 years experience of hair extension knowledge. I originally trained with Easilocks and more recently started to collaborate with Remi Cachet hair to broaden my range of service. I believe that hair extensions are for everyone, regardless of age, gender or style. I take huge pride in my work and am a total perfectionist. Alongside my work I love being a mum and taking my beautiful children on adventures such as country walks, cycling and swimming. I enjoy spending vaulable time with my husband gardening or renovating our beautiful home. 


        El - Junior Stylist

          I am currently doing my apprenticeship at Newcastle College and of course here at VenU. I have wanted to be a hairdresser since I was 10 years old and I absolutely love it! The girls are here in the salon are amazing and very supportive. Out of work I love music so you will find me at gigs and festivals. I visit Newcastle Upon Tyne a lot to see my family as I am a Geordie orginally :) I am bulding my client base on a weekly basis and all my exsiting clients are fantastic.


            Vicky - Senior Stylist

              I have been a fully qualified hairdresser for over 20 years. I am extremely passionate about cutting & colouring, and love seeing the transformation and the smile on my clients face. I have owned my own salon in the past but I love nothing more than working with the amazing team here at The VenU. I am full of life, always smiling and giving my clients the best experience from start to finish.
