April 2019 - Inside the 'New' Jet Black
As you can see the shop is really coming along
Electrics in, first layer of paint applied after the white wash
Skirting boards added, new lighting is up and live....
All coming together
April 2019 - New shop front
Many hours paint stripping , scraping back paint, and general tidying has seen the new shop front pulled back from the lime green to the bare brick / metal / wood and concrete - yes couldn't believe how many different layers and materials one shop front could have!
Now taking it back to match the original salon front with the bold white and black - although only first coat has made a huge difference in appearance to the shop frontage.
Once completely coated and finished it will be ready for the new signage to go up in following few weeks
March 2019 - Little Princess Trust
We had this lovely lady Louise come to us asking us to help her donate 14 inches of hair to a good cause
Of course this is something we was more than happy to help Louise assist with
Afterwards salon owner Emma, restyled Louise's hair into a inverted bob which i'm sure we can all agree looks great
If anyone knows of anyone else wanting to do something for charity in which they think we can assist, previously done Little Princess trust and Brave the Shave, please do get in touch or pop into the salon to discuss further
