Happy New Year's 2017 and a Sneaky Peaky

by Carl Keeley

Did someone say 2016 can just F-off now? Well it's about to peeps and we're happy to see that sucker never return lol!

So just to help rush that 'memorable for all of the wrong reasons' year out the door or down the proverbial poo chute. We thought it'd be nice to brighten and lighten the mood by sharing a sneak peek of our upcoming Brand Collection titled 'DNA'.

This collection is of and for our salon clients. It shows you what we are lucky enough to do daily here - and before you ask, yes of course these are professional models (since we do their hair of course). And yes this is everyday cuts and colours around this joint. And yes this is commercial for us. And yes we are lucky buggers. And yes we are grateful to be this blessed to do this. But that my friends isjust how we roll right!

Remember for 2017, 'Cover Bands Don't Change the World - be who You Are'. And that's in Life as well as in Hair. We can't really help with the Life part but we can sure as hell help you design your Hair look to be the best '2017 You' that you can be.

Happy New Year from the Chumba Tribe!

It's Christmas Time - aka Christmas Nuts

by Carl Keeley

It's here and as hard as we've tried to ignore it - it really has happenned, Christmas has arrived (along with Summer thank you;-).

For those looking to spruce up their follicles and strands before your family judges you along with the 'Chrissy Pav' we do have so availability remaining for our Senior Stylists in both salons. We've got some great new hairdressers onboard recently so catch them early before they get their client bases choker blocked like the big guns around here.

Slots with Art Directors and Creative Team members are on the 'rare and endangered species bulletin'. Both salon's have an active cancellation list for those wanting to roll the dice before Christmas day and that works more often than not so please have a go at that one.

Both salons are fully stocked for stocking stuffers and Gift Vouchers too. These we can arrange over the phone for all of the slackers out there (myself included).

Opening hours are as per usual in the salons as the Team decided they needed to sleep and eat like a 'normal human' - very selfish of them! But the good news is they will be alive and healthy for your next visit so that's always a bonus.

Just for fun check out this wacky bunch of scissor nerds below...
