The Beginning

Gee first started his hairdressing journey by working for a well-known nationwide salon group based in the North East.

Being trained by some of the best stylists within the company, this took Gee to move down to London to explore his creativity and gain some vital inspiration to further his career.

Knowing that he would always come back to the North East, Gee began working in one of Newcastle’s top city centre salon to share his hairdressing knowledge and experience, and now having been hairdressing for over 10 years, he knew he was more than ready to start up a salon. This is where Gee-Kent Ho Salons was created to bring high quality hairdressing and trustworthy service to a new up and coming area of Gateshead.

Wellington Street

Wellington Street is steeped in historic milestones and was the hive of activity in its day.

This photograph is of the Wellington Street approach to Gateshead railway station in the 1920’s. Above the bridge once was home of the Gateshead West station, opened in 1844 and Gateshead East station in 1877, both enclosed by the large wooden structure connected to the High Level Bridge.

Now in Arch 2 & 4, the home of Gee-Kent Ho Salons, it now the place to be once again. The railway line above High Level Parade now is operated by the East Coast Main line and you may be lucky enough to hear the theatrical sound of the train passing when you’re in the salon.
