Putting the 'head' in headquarters, careyjones design for hair products brand ghd completes 

The striking new 15,600 sq ft headquarters for global hair beauty brand ghd, is now complete. Designed by careyjones interiors, the high specification project at landmark development, Bridgewater Place in Leeds provides a stunning central location for the market-leading styling iron and hair products manufacturer.

careyjones interiors worked with a project team from ghd, fit out specialists Overbury and Project Managers Fox Lloyd Jones to create the innovative space that provides a unique setting which brings ghd’s fashion style and image core values to life. The new HQ has a wide variety of uses including being a showcase for products, plus hosting events and developments to the international market. It also provides an office for more than 55 members of staff.

The space offers a unique environment for staff, clients and visitors. Key elements include the creation of a striking reception area with a catwalk, a multi-functional training academy, open plan offices with a high specification boardroom and break out meeting areas.

Beth Watson, project manager for the development of ghd and the education director at ghd, said: “It has taken two years to plan and develop our new HQ and it is amazing to finally move in. We wanted to stay loyal to our Yorkshire heritage as a brand and felt that Leeds was the right location to invest in as we move forward to the next stage of our development."

Project Director at careyjones, Scott Ryalls continued: “Hopefully people will be blown away by the aesthetics of the whole journey through the space, ghd’s commitment to the overall interior design married with their own strength of brand should synergise the company, staff and visitors alike.”
