March 2021 - Calm before the storm
Monday 12th April, is the date that has been dropped for all of the Hair and Beauty industry to aim towards re opening granted everything goes to plan on the road map ahead for England.
This means great news we have a date, and better then that the whole salon can return together rather then staggered like before. Until this date is 100% set in stone and confirmed the salons books will stay shut, as soon as we get the nod, our books will be open and get all you lovely people back in.
Keep your eyes peeled on our social channels for updates from now up to the 12th as we look forward to welcoming you all back once again - Lets hope for third time lucky

December 2020 - Jet Black Advent Calendar
2020 What a year for so many people for so many reasons
This year we have decided we wanted to give as many people as possible a smile on their faces so we have introduced our Advent Calendar, each day we will draw a name at random from everyone that has an appointment in the salon to get a treat from us. Costs nothing to enter, just need to be 'in it, to win it' if you have an appointment you have a chance of winning
Just a little way of saying thank you to all you lovely clients, friends and family that has continued to support us through thick and thin
Lets see the end of 2020 in the right way with positivity flowing xx
November 2020 - Let it snow, let it snow
As soon as Boris made the announcement we gathered the Jet Black Babes and got ourselves into the salon for a massive deep clean of the salon, got all the stock back out and re done the salon front windows that will see us into the new year.....
This is normally the salons favourite time of year with lots of fun, cheer, fancy dress and Christmas raffles this year will have to be toned down, but we are hoping we can still make the most of what has been a year none of us will ever forget
With the salon well and truly ready to welcome everyone back in again, Lets have a blast and fix all them crowns ready for a festive Christmas (hopefully with loved ones)
Emma & Family xx

September 2020 - Autumn Arrives
Summer well and truly gone with the weather turning from tropic heat to wind and rain...
Faye and Kirsty put in the work to make our summer window into Autumn, full of products we stock from the Matrix products, to the GHD umbrella to the barbers range and beauty products really showing we are not 'just a salon'. A lot of thought goes into each and every window display at the salon, it's not a 10 minute job and trust me Faye will already have her little book out planning ahead for the rest of the year, which shows the dedication Faye and the family put in at the salon.
So make sure you keep your eyes peeled when passing to see what we have up our sleeve next

Well where do we begin, at this time 9.10am of writting this i would of been still on the go from an all day and nighter trying to get everything in place ready for our open evening at 4pm (30th July)
The thought, energy and hard work that went into making this dream a reality was truly unbelievable - 1 year in the making we finally opened the doors on the biggest achievement to date with Jet Black, something i will look back on in life and be proud of what we have achieved. I never thought (although dreamed) of owning my own salon, and to say by the age of 30 i own my own salon, and expanded into one of the biggest salons in the area, of such unique qualities that hadn't been done before with bespoke custom barbers stations, kids cutting chairs, mixing the home from home feel with modern updates in a happy atmosphere where everyone wants to be i just couldnt of imagined it... Even with the virus interupting us, it hasn't stopped us doing what we do best
I couldn't of done it without all you lovely clients, the massive help from close family and friends and my beautiful work family - i am truly blessed to have everyone in my life and around me as i do now - Emma (bit emotional) xxx

Kirsty is a valued member of the family, regularly gets involved in social media and being the glamorous assistant to Faye in doing our window displays and being the camera lady.
Kirsty has grown since joining us and gained herself a loyal regular clientele, expanding on her knowledge and really is part of the furniture at the salon, although its 2 years it seems like she's been here alot longer (in a good way) Although our yearly trip to salon international looks in doubt we will have to do it doubley big next year!
When all this blows over we have so much to catch up on with missed birthday celebrations and now this landmark, but im sure we will do it in style.... Here's to many more years as a Jet Black Babe xx
July 2020 - Return of the Jet Black

April 2020 - This Is Not An April Fools- We Are Closed
I never thought we would EVER be in a position to say the salon is closed until further notice, but this is a position everyone else is in because of the coronavirus.
We have no idea on when we will be able to re open, but will NOT be open until we are 100% sure it is safe for both staff and clients to do so, this will be alongside government guidelines. With this is mind the salons booking system is shut temporarily and will be re opened as soon as we know more.

Feb 2020 - Kids Cutting Chairs
6 months ago (approx) we reopened with our bespoke childrens cutting chairs
Was really a massive talking point in and around the salon - believed to be the only salon for miles around to have these
At Jet Black we try to make everyone's trip to the hairdressers a special one! We have a designated area away from the hussle and bussle of the main salon where your little people can relax and sit in comfort to get that haircut. When asked the chairs are done on a weight / height limit but as a guideline we say up to 5 years old should be okay to use the chairs

Jan 2019 Pt 2
Half way through the month and the builders have been in the salon, preparing the salon to be opened up
We have lost a wall in our side and next week the back wash units will move to the other side of the salon
With this being done, it will then be the huge job of opening the main wall up and joining the 2 buildings together
Massive massive changes , cant wait for the end result
New year , how about a new salon???
Work is progressing rapidly on doubling the size, yes double! by taking over next door
It's been a long 6 months, but things are getting there and nearing the end of a long road

This Christmas 2018 has been one of my favourites in the salon, yes its been hard work with everyone putting in the extra hours to fit in everyone possible before Christmas, but the festive cheer flowed throughout the staff and clients and made it a joy to be here. Below you can see we wore the jumpers for National Christmas Jumper Day, and even got into fancy dress for the last day of work before Christmas. The Christmas draw went down well, big thank you for all that took part and indeed the winners.
Happy Christmas to clients old and new, and wishing you all a happy New year
Roll on 2018.... Jet Black is ready for you xxx
