2021 - Is It Time

Now I don’t know about you but the season of Christmas and New Year evoke some strong memories of childhood. At that time my personal vision for the future included travelling in space for our holidays, robots doing all the domestic chores, teleporting, hoverboards instead of bikes and the discovery of life on Mars!

The truth is that as we approach 2020 today’s vision is somewhat different from the 10-year-old me. Whilst we can see some changes the future has never been quite so unsettled, being able to count on certainty in local business is vital. 

So here’s my 2020 vision… 

Value is about respecting our guests and appreciating the importance of time and money spent with us.

Inspiration comes from education and creativity we are committed to a program which nurtures everyone from apprentices through to experienced team members.

Salon hair 365 days of the year is our promise to help you recreate great hair. Keeping up to date with all the emerging trends.

Introduce a friend is a concept we first introduced 25 years ago we feel a personal referral and an immediate reward of 50% saving is a straight forward way to repay the compliment.

Opportunities to indulge in a little luxury a place where the sun shines providing a little sanctuary.

New is always special in products, techniques ideas every visit. No change =no change.

We at Studio2 would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all you love a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

“Beam me up Scottie!”

I’ve known (and loved) Mandy for 17 years next May. In that time I’ve learned a lot about the wonderful world of hairdressing (amongst other things). I confess that prior to our meeting I suspect, like most men, I had a pretty fixed view of the world of female hairdressing which was based largely around “archetypal” discussions around holidays, failing men and yo-yo dieting. Wrong! 

So, my wife cuts hair for a living – but the truth of the matter is that this occupies only some of her time in the salon – she is in parts a psychologist, mother, counsellor, carer, life coach, mediator, teacher, confidant and friend.

Invariably after a day in the salon, she’ll arrive home with the emotion of the day writ large on her lovely face. These emotions range from the extraordinary feeling of helping someone restore their dignity whilst recovering from cancer to the joy of nurturing young talent as they emerge from shy apprentices to confident stylists.

It turns out that hairdressing performs a very wide range of functions for guests and my eyes have been opened not just by the technical skill involved in cutting, styling and colouring hair, but how vital the relationship between hairdresser and guest can be in terms of emotional support. As one of her clients once said to me in town, “a session with Mandy should be prescribed on the NHS!”. 

So gentlemen, when your wife/husband/lover/best friend takes her/his next trip to the salon, remember it’s not just about looking good, it’s about feeling better.
