Envy are pleased to inform you that former RWY salon manager, Steve Dyer will be returning to ENVY from Tuesday 15th March 2016.

Steve swapped his Plymouth lifestyle for the endless sunshine and golden beaches of Sydney, in January. However the heat, spiders and drop bears have all got a little too much for Steve, and the ‘Down Under’ lifestyle doesn’t quite compare to good old Janner-ville.

Envy RWY, currently are taking bookings for Steve, to make his return a busy one. He will be working Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Book now to secure your appointment 01752 251351.

Team Envy look forward to welcoming him back, and seeing all his friendly clients again soon.


Friday evening saw Envy RWY host another of its popular VIP Pamper Evenings. In collaboration with Jo Butler, manager of Eden collection, and in association with Bovey Castle – the evening brought together a variety of high profile companies from around Devon.

The VIP styled events started when the Royal William Yard salon opened, in 2012.  The ‘VIP pamper experience’ evenings were invented in aid of creating awareness of the yard- based salon, which now continues as a marketing based event.

The February edition was attended by a mixture of companies including, Ocean BMW, Grosvenor Casino, Kawasaki, Plymouth Chamber of commerce and St Peters Primary School.

The evening consisted of champagne, with a variety of hair and nail services on offer, such as manicures, blow-dries and massages.

It was a very successful night and Envy hope all that attended had an enjoyable and memorable experience.


It certainly has been a busy week for Envy, with management training kicking it  off first thing on Monday morning.


Held at St. Elizabeth’s house just around the corner from Envy PSM, a selection of employee’s started their journey into a six month management training programme in hope of it securing themselves a management role within the Envy brand.

The programme was written and delivered by director Tracie Gunningham, who hopes all her staff enrolled on the programme will find it challenging but rewarding, leaving them with the skills and knowledge to manager her salons.

The next training session will commence on the 29th Feb.


Envy BWY & Envy RWY took part in their first fundraiser of the year this week… and what a success!

Each employee was challenged to bake something to help create a variety of delicious goodies for a cake sale in aid of world cancer day.

The event that was held across 2 days, raised £140 in its first day alone, the total amount is still yet to be confirmed.

Hugs from Henry being Envy’s chosen charity of 2016, means that all proceeds of the charity cake sale will go towards helping Team Hugs support children and their families who are diagnosed with childhood cancer.

Envy would like to thank all clients and local business for making their first event so successful, and for the kind donations.

Envy are proud to announce, their chosen charity for 2016 will be Plymouth based ‘Hugs From Henry’.

Requested specifically by the staff of the 3 Envy salons, all fundraising will go towards raising awareness and support for children suffering a rare childhood cancer.

Henry Hallam was only 3 years old when his family were told he had stage 4 Neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer.  Henry suffered months of gruelling treatments to help save his life, in various locations across the country.

The original charity ‘Hugs For Henry’ was set up to help raise money for treatment available outside the UK, which could be beneficial to Henry.

In 2013, Henry was given the news that his condition is stable. His parents decided to change the charity from ‘Hugs For Henry’ to ‘Hugs From Henry’ – The charity offers any kind of support emotionally and financially for families who find themselves in the same position as the Hallam family did in 2012.

Envy will be hosting a variety of different charity events throughout the year to raise money for their local charity.

More information on Hugs From Henry can be found on the website:

Charity No: 116138
