Arch 6 Forth St, Central Station, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 3NZ


My name is Ruth Codinha, I am originally from Portugal and moved to Newcastle Upon Tyne in 2004. My hairdressing career spans over 20 years, and when I came to live in Newcastle, I attended South Tyneside College to further enhance my hair styling skills and obtained a degree.

My specialities include Afro hair, All Curly hair types and short hair as I have gained valuable knowledge and experience over the years after working in multiple hair salons in these fields of styling, blow-dry which I have my own technique, colouring, perming, relaxing and many more. I am also very skilled with Asian and European hair as well as cutting children’s hair.

I am dedicated in providing the best advice and service to my clients, and sharing my knowledge and years of experience. And I am proud for my salon to be featured in The Times magazine website, Refinery29, Black Beauty & Hair Magazine and ITV TyneTees.

If you like to book an appointment or come in for a free consultation, please ring the salon 01912612211 or send a message.

Thank you,
Ruth Codinha
