It was a snip! Christos Hair Salon have been overwhelmingly voted Newport Pagnell Independent Shop of 2015 by their devoted customers.
Mark & Tina Periclis, owners of the salon were over the moon to hear that they had won the accolade and the recognition is particularly special, as 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the setting up their business.
Mark’s father, Christos, started the business in 1965 and the world of hairdressing has changed beyond recognition since. Today’s salon is a constant hive of activity and the commitment to customer service is second to none. They have adapted their business to meet the needs of today’s busy client and keeping ahead of the fast moving techniques and trends has put them at top of their game.
The salon has also been working in partnership for the past 2 years with both MK and Bedford Hospitals and MacMillan to offer a unique and personal service to cancer patients and those who suffer with alopecia in their private first floor salon.
Mark said, “I was born and bred in Newport Pagnell, also 50 years ago! Dad has since returned home and I’ve been keeping this competition a secret from him, I just can’t wait to tell him the amazing news. What a great year its turning out to be!”
As an advocate of our local independant shops, I was so pleased with the fantastic response to this campaign as it gives customers the opportunity to be able to say thank you to their favourite butcher, florist, grocer, or whoever it maybe.
Many congratulations to Mark, Tina and all the dedicated team at Christos, it’s clearly not a case of “hair today and gone tomorrow!”
It’s Enough To Make Your Hair Curl!
It was a joy to be able to meet lucky voter, Ro Smith from Sherington and congratulate him on winning £100 to spend at Christos Hair Centre.
Ro was randomly chosen from over 350 people who voted in my campaign to find the most popular Independent Shop of 2015 in Newport Pagnell.

Since the salon opened over 48 years ago, the main focus has always been around great hairdressing and superb client care. Many things have changed over time, equipment, for one is more high tech, there was no such thing as ghd’s in the 60’s and now we cannot last a day without using them. The research and development of salon professional products and the enhancement of colour techniques have pushed us to educate ourselves to create advanced forward thinking styles for today’s busy client.
We have introduced the runway, a 30 minute colour service for a quick re-do for those in-between times. We have trained extensively with professional Wella technicians on Illumina the first sheer colour that’s luminous in every kind of light. Introducing the new curl machine from Babyliss made the exceptionally busy prom work a lot easier and allowed us to experiment with lots more styles which in turn will no doubt look great on a lot of our Brides. Working with our brides’ right from the beginning and planning their big day with them provides us with a lot of happiness and job satisfaction.
I am lucky to work with some of the most amazing creative stylists who are passionate about producing superb results for their clients. Our barbers, led by Mark, have extensive knowledge of all men’s cuts and they continue to amaze me with the individual service they provide for every client.
