The Salon

The salon opened its doors on the 29th April 2016, with literally the paint wet.  There was a opening party with Honey Fungus playing acoustic, lots of Prosecco, Cup Cakes and Friends.

The work within the salon was done on a budget, with the help of friends and family only and in a big big rush as clients were knocking at the door.

Kala chose to use Paul Mitchell Styling and Colouring Products as she loves the predictability of the colours and the luxury of the styling products.  She also loves the fact that none of the products are tested on animals.

The salon also uses disposable towels as they are kinder on the environment and can be put on the compost heap.

You can relax enjoy unlimited tea, coffee, bubbles, wine, herbal tea, a homemade cake from the Country Kitchen while browsing the internet using our free WiFi.

The atmosphere is relaxed with clients working, online shopping or just enjoying the purpose made play lists.

Over the next 12 months the salon is hoping to develop its existing Beauty Services, enter some hairdressing competitions and learn lots of new skills, there over over 14 hair courses booked for 2017. Education is key.
