Welcome to Our Newsletter!

It’s been so good to open our doors to our gorgeous guests again after yet another lockdown. I’m really enjoying transforming your hair and making you all look and feel amazing. Here’s a little update about what’s been going on in the salon and some reminders for all our guests.

Salon Refurb

As you will have seen if you follow us on social media, just because our doors have been shut for a lot of the past year, that hasn’t stopped us creating a gorgeous, relaxing environment for you. From installing plant walls and flowers to comfy seating, we’ve made the salon into an Instagrammable and of course, Covid-safe environment for you all. We hope that when you visit, you love it as much as I do!

We’re on our way to becoming an Eco Salon!

We are an Aveda Salon, so we already only use their gorgeous products which are 96% naturally derived* Vegan ,Cruelty free, and Sulphate and Silicone free. Not only that, but we recycle all of our waste products instead of throwing them in the bin so they end up in landfill.

But we’re not stopping there.

Aveda has partnered with the Green Salon Collective to make salons even more sustainable.

Why is this necessary?

Well we all love the hairdressing industry, but it has an ugly side too. Toxic hair colour gets poured down the sink. Foils and colour tubes get thrown in the bin because they can’t be recycled. We use tonnes of plastic and paper, and don’t get me started on the energy we use laundering gowns and towels!

The Green Salon Collective wants to change all of that.

Every salon members gets help with recycling and education on being more sustainable, and the collective recycles, composts, and recovers hair, used foils, empty colour tubes, chemicals, PPE, plastic, paper, and even salon towels on our behalf. This means that recyclable materials like aluminium foil don’t end up in landfill and hair is added to compost, used to absorb oil to keep our waterways clean, or donated to wig making charities. Nothing goes to waste.

What’s even better is that 100% of any money raised from recycling your raw materials or new products made from recycling waste goes to charity.

We are proud to be a salon that cares about our guests and the planet.

We’ve been shortlisted!

We were delighted to win Best Hair Extensions Salon in Bristol last year, and this year, we’ve been shortlisted again! Thank you to all of you who nominated us, it means so much that we’re appreciated for what we do. You all inspire me to keep doing better.

Just a little reminder to get your appointments booked in fast. June is almost full and appointments in July are going fast. We’re fully booked this month and August, but we can still do consultations and add you to our cancellations list.

Reminder about our FCA licence

Don’t forget, ladies, we now have an FCA licence and our Payl8r plan option is live and ready for applications! You don’t need a consultation to apply and you can pay as little as £25 and spread the cost of your services and products over 3-12 months.

If you want to check prices and costs, there’s a calculator on our website, and feel free to message me if you want any more info. Spread the cost and have amazing hair this summer and beyond.

Until next time,

Rainy

Few people would ever associate hairdressing with occupational asbestos exposure. In the past, these workers handled hair dryers that contained asbestos insulation. Barbers and hairdressers were also exposed to asbestos-contaminated talcum powder. Repeated use of these products increased their risk of developing asbestos-related diseases. By
