A Royal Invitation For Jeremy Farber At Award-Winning Headfirst In Leeds

Headfirst is at the very heart of the North Leeds community.  Over the past three and a half decades, owner Jeremy Farber and his team have been involved in lots of creative fundraising events which earned Jeremy an invitation to King Charles' first garden party at Buckingham Palace on May 9th 2023.

Together we have raised more than £30,000 for a number of charities over the last decade – through sponsored waxing, family fun days and even turning the salon into a creperie for the day. 

Jeremy said: "I’m absolutely honoured and privileged to have been recognised for my contributions to charity through creative fundraising events - particularly as all attendees must receive nominations to attend.

The Headfirst team has earned many awards over the years including Best Community Salon, Best UK Salon Experience, Best Independent UK Salon, and Yorkshire Evening Post’s Salon of the Year.

Jeremy added: “The community in Alwoodley is very supportive when we organise charity events, and each year I look forward to coming up with a new idea to raise money for a great cause. It’s been really difficult for businesses like ours over the last few years, but it’s been great to see people returning to a normal way of life – and I encourage people to continue supporting their local shops and communities.”

Jeremy is currently planning the next fundraiser – an open-water swim to raise money for children’s diabetes.
