Daccs Hair and Beauty has reopened in a new Washington location with the help of the licensing team at Mincoffs Solicitors.

Daccs, previously based at Kielder House on Emmerson Terrace in Washington, was devastated by fire in February forcing owners Diane and Chris Irwin to find new premises.

Their search led them to the former Sandpiper Pub, in Biddick, Washington, which had recently closed down and offered them the space they needed for their business to thrive.

The owners have spent the last 4 months transforming the old pub to a stunning salon, working with Simon Bartlett of Simon Bartlett Interiors on the interior design. The new salon boasts Italian furnishings, new treatment rooms and a licenced gin bar. The owners have also included external facilities in the design with a view to offering clients treatments in the sunshine during the summer months.

The Licensing team at Mincoffs Solicitors, headed by Matt Foster were instructed by Chris and Diane to advise them on the application for a premises licence.

Diane commented “We are so grateful for our clients for standing by us following the fire and we are thrilled to be able to offer them an absolutely beautiful salon experience.”

“We would like to thank Matt and the team at Mincoffs for their expert advice in helping us apply for a premises licence and change of use licence in order for us to convert the pub into a salon.  Their advice was invaluable”.

Matt Foster, Head of Mincoffs Solicitors’ Licensing team added “Diane and Chris have a clear vision for the future of Daccs Salon for the benefit of its customers and its staff and it has been a pleasure to help them to achieve it. I wish them the best of luck with this exciting venture.”
