About Us

About Hair Mechanics


Jesko and Julie established Hair Mechanics in 2006 and set out to create a warm, friendly, welcoming city centre salon to give their clients a time out from the stresses of daily life.

Katy joined them in 2012 providing 12 years of happy Salon life and we welcomed Abbie to the team in 2023 and Emily in 2024 to continue the journey. Hair Mechanics  has grown into a much loved Salon in Newcastle City Centre which led to winning the 2021 Englands Business Awards  – Best Business in Newcastle  and the Phorest 5* customer experience award for 2023.

Hair Mechanics strength lies in the individuals who create the Team, each one has their own specialised area of knowledge and expertise for you to choose from.

Jesko originates from Germany, so besides English, we can also offer German as an in salon language. The Team works with professional brands like Schwarzkopf, American Crew, Fudge and Neal & Wolf to deliver all the latest technologies, techniques, products and services to satisfy your wishes, hopes and dreams.

The Hair Mechanics Team considers in depth hair consultations, the key to providing the highest standards of customer care. These lead to the perfect harmony of tailored cuts, bespoke colours and customised hair extensions, helping you to reach your happy zone. We can now offer you a privacy screen.

The aftercare advice and products recommended by the Hair Mechanics Team will enable you to maintain your look and keep you in your happy place, even at home.

The salon is situated in a charming 200 year old Grade-ll listed building on Thornton Street, a square just around the corner from the Tyne Theatre, Dance City, the city walls, China Town, The Centre for life and Science Central nestled within the conservation area of Newcastle.

If you are coming to see us by car there is metered on street parking at Waterloo Street which leads you onto the square or Grainger Town Multi Story carpark. If you are traveling by train, metro or bus the central train station is a five minute walk away.

We look forward to welcoming you to Hair Mechanics so that you can experience our relaxing yet invigorating atmosphere and passion for all things hair.


Jesko – love brought Jesko to the U.K., winning a few awards and an 8 week stint on the tv series ‘Hairdo’ brought him to open up Hair Mechanics. A master hairdresser with a warm personality, his style combined with his passion for hair gives the foundation for the ongoing success of Hair Mechanics, despite his quirky taste in music!

Katy – Katy’s lust for life and adventurous ideas gained her the title of Colour Queen, combined with her love of hair extensions she is dynamite.

Julie – Julie is known as the Numbers Queen, the boss woman holding the reins.


Doing our bit

We are aware that there is no planet B and with this in mind we have always aimed to be as energy efficient, water efficient and environmentally friendly as we can without compromising the quality of our services and products we offer.

That is why we introduced an in-salon refill service for you to enjoy your favourite care products at home without the guilt of constant new packaging.

We offer a range of Schwarzkopf Essensity hair colour which is 90% organic, the Schwarzkopf Osis styling and finishing products are 50% natural, Igora Royal colour range is vegan except for the Igora Absolute range. The Schwarzkopf Igora colours use the minimum amount of chemicals needed to achieve the required results. All Schwarzkopf packaging is now made from recycled  aluminium, plastic and paper, the BC Clean Performance range  uses advanced vegan technology to achieve a clean formula, meaning, the products are free of sulphates, silicones and parabens.  Neal and Wolf care products are paraben free, sulphate free, TEA free, DEA free and cruelty free. We are always on the look out for new products to expand and fit with our ethos.

Our extension suppliers are carefully chosen to reflect our aim to provide a humanely sourced product.
