Helping the Homeless
Helping the Homeless want to make at least 500 ‘Winter Proof’ packs which they plan to distribute 27-28 May. We’re helping out by acting as a collection point for donations. If you would like to help this worthy cause, you can get your donations to us by Saturday 21 May, and we’ll drop them off to the organisers. Find out more about Helping the Homeless here.

What's needed

Simone and Gina recently attended an Olaplex education evening and are thrilled to be able to offer this service to our clients. It stops hair breakage by multiplying bonds, leaving your hair stronger and healthier, while helping your colour stay vibrant and last longer.
Olaplex stops chemical treatments damaging your hair and can be added to your next colour service, or be used as a stand alone repair treatment.
