What a hectic few months it’s been over here at Dean Jones Hairdressing, from our refurbishment of downstairs, to The Edinburgh Festival and our team trip down to London for Salon International 2018. It has indeed been crazy but we’ve enjoyed every minute!
Refurbishment of Downstairs
Firstly thank you to all our clients for your patience throughout the renovation process, it was noisy, dusty and Dean was uncontrollable, but we are so pleased with our new downstairs salon space. With our Senior Assistant Neve coming up the ranks we look forward to making full use of this new salon space, and creating loads more gorgeous looks along the way. This can also be used for Private Bridal Parties or Birthday’s where we can organise a full glam squad to look after you in your own space. We hope you love our new area as much as we do!
It’s always our favorite time of the year. Edinburgh just blooms with entertainment and cool pop up bars / restaurants. We made sure to have a team outing to Assembly Room’s drag show ‘Yummy’ which was a real giggle and if you get the chance to next year definitely give them a visit.
Of course our most favorite part of this crazy month is meeting a whole bunch of people from all over the globe and making them feel beautiful or rescuing them from the rain.
Our New Manager!!
We had a very exciting promotion this quarter for our Senior Stylist from the very start – Linden! She is now salon manager, taking care of not only salon education, being a mum to all staff and now taking care of a whole bunch of serious stuff. Congrats to our salon OG.
Salon International 2018
The whole team took a trip down to London at the start of October. Apart from a disastrous journey down, with weather warnings and a 3 hour delay – We all had a blast! We spent the whole Sunday going around London’s Excel Center trying and testing new products and getting inspired from a whole bunch of famous stylist’s showcasing their work on stages scattered around the arena.
We were even lucky enough to get a tour and insiders glimpse of our favorite London salon “ Not Another Salon”, their wacky colours and creative styles inspires us daily, as does salon director Sophia Hilton’s hilarious Instagram posts. We got a whole salon tour and some of the guys managed to bump into Sophia after her seminar at the tradeshow and get some selfies. Head over to our social media outlets for all footage from our London trip.
Education, Education, Education
We’ve had a whole bunch of courses over this half of the year, with our Director Dean recently graduating with his Wella Master Colour Award. We also visited Sophia Hilton’s Balayage Bash (which we then had to bring back to the salon and do our own salon education evening),Stylists got inspired with Wella Educator Abby with the launch of new Koleston Perfect with Me+ whilst our Assistant’s got creative at the launch of the all new GHD Platinum+.
