Rejuvenation clinic now open at The Rock

A clinic specialising in face, hand, hair and body rejuvenation has opened its doors at The Rock Shopping Centre.

Urban Radiance, at 114 The Rock, has been opened by Teresa Solarczyk Burke, with a focus on helping clients slow down the ageing process.

The clinic officially opened on Friday (26th May) and is running a number of special opening offers across its facials, vitamin injections and anti-wrinkle treatments.

Teresa said: “I am so excited to see my dream of opening my own clinic become a reality, I have always been so interested in skin care and I have worked hard to learn and understand exactly what my clients need. I am proud to be working with and stocking Million Dollar Facial products.”

The 57-year-old from Bury worked in customer service for a number of years before retraining in this field. The clinic will be open seven days a week and is appointment only.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director at The Rock, said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Urban Radiance to The Rock and wish Teresa well in her new venture.”

Some star-studded stats surfaced from Wella’s study. 55% of Virgos credit their hair for attracting romantic partners, for instance, while 45% of Libras admitted that dirty hair gave them the “ick”.

One thing was for sure, Aries are the most influenced by social media when it comes to their hair – with one in ten reporting they love to try TikTok trends.

Did you know that people with a Sagittarius Sun sign place a high value on their hair appearance? So much so, that it’s advised for them to experiment with different hairstyles and colours to enhance their natural beauty and captivating nature.

While if your sun is in Gemini, and you hate making decisions, Wella has made things easier for you.

Expert astrologer, Lisa Stardust, commented:

“The correlation between astrology and hair habits, as revealed by Wella, comes as no surprise,” comments Lisa, “Our zodiac signs encompass not only our personality traits but also our overall demeanour and self-presentation. Hence, it is only natural to observe Scorpios devoting additional time and attention to perfecting their styles, Leos striving to make their hair stand out as a bold statement, and Cancers bravely venturing beyond their comfort zones to embrace transformative changes. This harmonious fusion of astrology and hair care serves as a powerful reminder that our zodiac signs play a significant role in shaping not just our behaviour, but also how we confidently present ourselves to the world.”

So, never underestimate the role of the stars on your locks – whether your rising sign is in Pisces and you would go to drastic lengths to avoid a bad hair day, or your Moon is in Leo and you only need to spend 5 minutes on your hair as a result of your infectious confidence.

Find the right products for your hair with Wella when shopping at The Rock.

Coronation celebrations at The Rock

Families enjoyed a day of truly British fun as they joined The Rock Shopping Centre in celebrating the Coronation of King Charles III.

The shopping and leisure destination held a day of free family fun on Bank Holiday Monday (8th May).

Visitors enjoyed traditional face painting, a treasure hunt around the centre and ceramic crown craft making.

The event was held in a marquee in front of The Range and also included royal stilt walkers and the king’s guards to oversee the activity.

Whilst the fun was free, donations in aid of The Rock’s partner charity were encouraged and £55 was raised for Jigsaw Bury.

Arnold Wilcox-Wood, Centre Director at The Rock, said: “We had a wonderful time celebrating this historic occasion with our customers, it was great to see so many families taking part in our treasure hunt around The Rock and those who completed the hunt were awarded with a handful of gold from the King’s treasury…of the chocolate variety! The crown craft station and face painting were busy for the whole day and our royal themed characters were hugely popular. Thank you to everyone who joined us.”
