Well well what can I say April has certainly taken me by surprise. This Saturday we had to open an hour earlier than normal as we were so busy !Myself,Alison, Ali and Kirsty all fully booked.The day went to plan ,we were on time ,produced fantastic work .I started the day with one of our weekly ladies and ending with a set of hair extensions, we use Balmain hair and it looked fabulous. Alis day included a new client travelling down from London to have our 5 star Kerastraight Smoothing System ,she arrived at 12 and left at 5 !A beautiful result that we will share on Facebook and instagram page we hope to see her at Maria Amey Salons for a colour next time. Her boyfriend is now a regular customer to the salon which is lovely.So Allison’s day consisted of new clients to her but not to the salon ,highlights using matrix haircolour and cuts and blow drys for our regulars .The week I had a super excited client email to book in because she’s been given a surprise trip to Palmar, Spain and needed top to toe lash tinting,nails and pedicure using gel 2 Polish, fabulous to see our clients excited to come in ,relax and look polished for a trip.Kirsty also is enjoying the more relaxing side to the salon and performing her facial ,back ,neck and shoulder special for another two clients today.Shes fitting in just nicely as our clients get to know her .I was lucky enough to share my Saturday evening with one of my clients and friends ,25 years of marriage congratulations Vicky and James and what a brilliant party .So next week sees the return of our fabulous nail specialist Gemma Thursday evening and all day Saturday ,I’m looking forward to it already as she brings a lot of fun to the salon and her work is exceptional. Lots of love Maria and the team.
Well 2016 has been a whirlwind !Mixed emotions of pride of how we’ve built the salon and it’s reputation with it .A fabulous group of hairdressers and beauty therapists always busy loving life ,then suddenly gravel Hill closes and we unfortunately quiet down just employing two new members of staff .Ever thinking things would pick up we battled through the extremely tough times ,keeping the staff on as I believed in them and our future.October took tough times as suddenly under staffed and struggling to keep up with the very heavy work load and financially and emotionley unable to say no to clients seeing myself and my right arm Ali working more hours than we felt we could handle ,however we did it and this February 2017 saw the arrival of a fabulous hairdresser to our team.Years of experience yes but also so easy to work with making the salon flow once again and helping by little gestures such as helping with the laundry and staying late to sort my hair !Never in a hurry to get home of an evening and happy to help .In March and April Gemma an old friend came to the rescue to help with our super busy nail salon and then just three weeks ago that arrival of the very sincere Kirsty looking for a new challenge with us and take our beauty salon under her wing creating her own relaxed way about the place. We have Leigh still with us after four years with all her lovely regulars becoming friends of us all .Zoe will be back in the summer after her maternity leave .Ali will be qualified this year and already showing tremendous talent with her hair extensions and kerastraight treatments and to this date never failing an exam .We have a wonderful therapist called lucy joining us this summer also not to mention Beth our specialist in anti wrinkle injections and dermal fillers.This is a bit about us now but I would like to talk about my training, my passion ,our future where it all started but we will leave that for another day. We will be posting tutorials ,hints and tips also .See you all soon Maria .
