How have you been spending lockdown and what have you been up to?
During lockdown I have started a Trichology course so I can take over Maya's brilliant work on our scalp clinic when we reopen. I have also been keeping in touch with all our lovely clients and managing our waiting lists. When it hasn't been absolutely freezing I have been going out for some nice local walks and watching plenty of Netflix.

The team, the clients, sustainability

The team have been amazing and lifted each other up when times got tough as well as encourage each other when we're doing well. It's been great to work for a salon that has such high standards and professionalism whilst having fun and taking into account sustainability which was always my goal when working in a salon. The clients are also wonderful,  making for a lovely salon atmosphere that feels comfortable to everyone. I will miss them all very much ❤️

I've been spending lockdown packing my things to move away and preparing for the new job, as well as thinking about when we will be allowed to see everyone again and I can come back for a visit to celebrate good times ahead ????
