22 for ’22: Celebrating Bath & Somerset’s Most Inspiring Women

By Anita Jaynes on 18 March, 2022

We’re celebrating Bath and North East Somerset’s most inspiring women to mark International Women’s Day 2022 which this year took place on Tuesday 8th March.

Through our social media channels, we asked our readers which women in our community inspire them and created a list of 22 for ’22. The list is printed in our spring Bath magazine and from Tuesday 1st March, each weekday throughout the month we’re profiling and championing each of these fantastic women online and via our social feeds.

This feature is sponsored by Milsted Langdon accountants. Milsted Langdon decided to support this activity as they are passionate about supporting women in business and helping local communities thrive through their work with business owners, charities and not-for-profits. 

Gill Freeman, Partner and Head of Charity and Not-For-Profit at Milsted Langdon, said, “The business world is full of hugely talented and successful women who not only run businesses or work in demanding roles, but they often also juggle caring responsibilities at the same time. It’s important to highlight the contribution that women make to the wider community, and to support each other whilst encouraging and empowering the younger generations.”

Today we put the spotlight on twin sisters Martha and Mathilde Heather, Co-Founders of Bath’s The Suite Hair and Beauty.

The business which was established in 2017 combines the skills of the two sisters. Martha is a beautician and Mathilde is a hairdresser. Together with their team they offer a wide range of services from haircuts, styles and colouring to manicures, pedicures, eyelash and eyebrow maintenance and cosmetic treatments.

Martha and Mathilde have worked hard to build their brand and reputation and have an enviable following on social media, with 12.6k followers on Instagram alone. They are known for their fun and lighthearted approach sharing their salon life through reels and memes.

The Suite is situated on 35 Gay Street (next to the Jane Austen Centre). Visit online at: www.thesuitebath.co.uk and follow on Instagram  @thesuitehairandbeauty
