Laceys 35th anniversary 

Malcolm Lacey

Forget dry January, we’re raising a glass to Laceys Hair & Beauty who are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year. To honour this milestone… 

Laceys will support the Hair & Beauty Charity all throughout 2024, helping raise funds and awareness. We applaud this generous celebration and look forward to the year ahead. To further the celebrations, Malcolm Lacey, founder of Laceys, details the company’s history and three things which have stood out for him over the years:  

Malcolm Lacey celebrates Laceys 35th anniversary 

Malcolm says: “2024 marks a significant year for Laceys as we celebrate 35 years in business. I feel incredibly proud of our journey, team, and customers. When my wife Paula and I started Laceys in 1989, we had a clear vision of how we wanted the business to be. Our desire was to give a better service than large corporations. We show a caring and personal approach supporting professional hairdressers in their creative and business growth. These values helped steer the business and remain true. They are especially relevant today when many large companies have chosen to adopt supermarket strategies that disappoint their professional customers.  

While we focus firmly on the future, Paula and I have been reflecting on what we’re most proud of over the last 35 years, and three things stand out. 


Great products 

We’re proud that we’ve chosen to partner only with quality brands and great products. We want to give the best options to our customers. We know that when you have the best products to combine with your creative skills, you’ll get fantastic results which delight your clients. 


Our education has grown immensely. We have two full-time educators delivering training both in-salon and at our studio, and a network of excellent guest educators and presenters. 2024 has our most extensive program to-date. This includes In Salon Sessions targeted to your needs, the amazing Color Excellence degree course, Cutting & Coloring with the multi award-winning Marc Antony Artistic team, Runway Ready (the only UK session course that guarantees you a place on a backstage team at Fashion Week), Social Media training, Blonde focus with blonde ambassador Lea Shaw, Cutting Skills with Melissa Timperley, and other sessions yet to be scheduled. All to support your skills and creativity. 

The training extends to business education with industry experts like Andrew Dale, Steve Hilliard, and Sagahaus. We’re proud to facilitate business-support skills to our customers with these sessions and the knoweldge and experience of the Laceys team. 


Our Interiors expert Terry can help with any salon project from design concepts to helping you choose the right chair or basins for your salon. Whether it’s selecting the right product portfolio for your brand, helping make your dream salon a reality, team motivation, bespoke marketing, or tailored education, the Laceys team can help your business grow. 

We feel as passionate and excited about the industry as we did in 1989 and love working with you all. When contemplating how we should mark this anniversary, an easy decision came to us. We are supporting the Hair & Beauty Charity and will be raising money for them throughout 2024, and donating generously ourselves. 

Our mission is as meaningful to us as it was 35 years ago: Providing quality products, education and expertise to help professional hairdressers grow. I would like to personally thank everyone connected with Laceys. Thank you for your custom, loyalty, support, and wonderful creativity. We appreciate every one of you. Here’s to an exciting 2024 for us all.”
