Squires is a family-run business established in 2004 originally as a barbers shop, but after out growing our existing premises and moving in 2014, we added a separate ladies department, and our training Academy.

We have a fabulous team of 8 hard-working barbers, hairdressers,beautician and make up artist in our traditional decorated, but modern shop in the stunning market town of Leek in Staffordshire.

Our Aim

Our main aim at Squires is to help people gain the confidence and skills to get them out there in the industry doing what they love most. We provide that bridge that sometimes people need, whether it be leaving college feeling like they are lacking skills in some areas, returning to work after a break or wanting to learn a new skill. Up to date 98% of our students have successfully gained employment or started to work for themselves since spending time with us. Please take the time to have a look at some of our testimonials.


You will leave us at the end of your assessments with a recognised certificate accredited by Professional beauty direct and Tower gate professional health and beauty to enable you to gain full insurance cover on the skills that you have learned with us.

We are easily reachable by train to Stoke, Macclesfield, or Congleton train station where a short bus /taxi ride will get you to us.
