Pastels and Positivity in a Pandemic
Isn’t it a sign that we are living in extraordinary times when weekends and holidays have become just like any other day? With the exception of indulging in some Easter egg joy, plans are few and far between. Easter has always been one of our favourite times in the salons. There is a palpable energy in the air, with a freshness that generally sees clients opt for lighter tones and springtime cuts. It’s the time of the year for celebration when talk at the wash basin turns to communions, confirmations and weddings and the heavy winter coats we hang on your arrival are swapped for lighter versions. We miss all of that and we miss you.
Like us, we know you are at home waiting on news of when your favourite restaurants, shops and of course salons can reopen. We can assure you that absence truly does make the heart grow fonder! As ever, we are using our time away from the salons to think about how we can best serve you, our clients. While our lights remain off, we are keeping our on-line shop stocked with the latest products. We know that it’s not the same as the salon experience but we hope they keep you feeling and looking good, and encourage you to take the time for some good old TLC. We are also working behind the scenes to ensure our salons exceed the health and safety requirements for a safe re-opening.
You can rest assured that we are always keeping a very close eye on virtual catwalks, alternative fashion weeks and social media so we stay as trend savvy as ever. Speaking of which, we’re delighted to see that the pop and pastel colours reminiscent of candyfloss and sherbet are still trending – those Easter shades are a fun way to freshen up tired blonde highlights and balayage and take the focus away from the roots (until you can get to us).
Thank you for your ongoing support and for championing local businesses. To you and your families, we wish an Easter break filled with chocolate delights and the hope of returning to life as we know it very soon. We have come this far and shortly, this pandemic will be something we talk about in the past tense. And oh, how we’ll celebrate.
