Maria Bates

With nearly 30 years experience in the hair and beauty industry, Maria opened up the original salon in 1999 working solely on her own to build a reputable and successful Northampton hair salon.

Maria made the tough decision to come out of the salon whilst pregnant with her youngest Maria, allowing for her to concentrate all her energies on motherhood. Around this time her eldest daughter Ellie was just entering the industry on an apprenticeship scheme.

After a 3 year hiatus, Marie and Ellie were presented with the exciting opportunity to go into partnership and restore the salon back to the successful and much loved business it once was.

With a brand new identity, the salon was redesigned and brought to life with big help from Maria’s parents and husband Darren.

A real family affair, the M and the E in Pamper Me stand for Maria & Ellie.

Clients at the salon are in very safe and skilled hands, with Maria having learnt her trade under the late Mr Colin Vokes. She has an extensive range of qualifications in beauty, ladies hairdressing, gents barbering and Racoon hair extensions.
