Catching up with you all!
Hi all! It's 2021 and boy are we all glad last year is behind us. I'm back with some tips and tricks to make your hair life a little easier. But first...
A LOT has happened since I've written the last blog. Our regulars know the story, but I thought I'd catch the rest of you up.
We have moved locations and changed ownership as of April 2019. Our merry little core of staff from the old location decided we wanted to make a go of it together. So we found another location close by, renovated it and moved in.
We have been lucky enough to find 2 new staff members to add to our family (another on the way soon) and we were working hard through 2019 through to the beginning of 2020 and then... well, you know what happened. Like all non-essential services, we were shut down in the middle of March just a few weeks shy of our 1 year anniversary.
Our lovely clientele have since expressed to us that they consider us an essential service ( love you all), but the government didn't. Like most of you, the shut down put all of our lives on hold. Luckily, we were only shut down for 2 months. We spent those months keeping connected and working towards our eventual re-opening.
Thanks to our spectacular owner and her magical shopping ability, we had all the necessary PPE and sterilisation supplies in place when the order came to reopen. That, plus the Beauty Council's, " Beauty Safe" refresher course on cleaning protocols, helped us be ready first day.
There was a lot of confusion and questions at first, along with a surge of new clients taking advantage of our online booking option. As we all learned how to navigate this new reality, we were inundated with so many well wishes and positive feedback from our clientele. Our clients truly appreciated the effort we went to to keep them safe.
So... here we are... 2020 behind us. The lessons learned have been many, but Bonnie Henry had the best advice, kindness, patience and respect will help in trying times. I know that this year will be a fresh opportunity to take what we've learned, add it to our knowledge bank and move forward. that what we do best as beauty professionals.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the beautiful people who have supported us through last year. We truly couldn't have got through it without you. Much love and Happy Hair!!!!
