Looking for a luxurious pamper session or getting ready for a big night out? Middlesbrough has you covered. From express manicures to extended treatments, a quick trim or high fashion do!
Middlesbrough has a wide range of hair and beauty salons located in the town centre.
Middlesbrough also has a unique connection to the art of tattooing and is home to a wide range of talented artists. The word tattoo was first used in the published account of Middlesbrough-born Captain Cook's first voyage.
The word 'tattoo' is derived from the Tahitian word 'tatau', meaning to mark. The word 'tattaw' was first used in the published account of Captain Cook's first voyage, which appeared in 1769. It has been suggested that 'tatau' is an onomatopoeic word. 'Tat' refers to tapping the tattooing instrument into the skin; 'au' to the cry of pain from the person being tattooed. Wow!
