We can’t believe that we’ve been here one year, what an adventure it has been!
To mark the occasion, we’ve decided to look back at our five most memorable moments of our first year…
#1 When Shareefa overslept!
When we think back to the day we opened, one thing comes to mind – Shareefa overslept!
As you can imagine, we wanted everything to be just right as we opened our doors and so we’d spent many long nights in the salon trying to make everything as perfect as possible. The night before we opened, we were in the salon preparing those finishing touches when before we knew it, it was 2am! We were SO tired. Imaginary blue lights were flashing before our eyes and we even took a wrong turning on the way back home that night – thanks Martin! So when the big day finally arrived, I was on my way into work and decided to call Shareefa at 8am (the exact time she was meant to be at the salon). Oh my gosh, she’d slept through her alarm clock and had only just woken up – and our very first client EVER was at 9am! Thankfully Shareefa managed to reach work on time and our very first client left the salon with a big smile on her face!
What way to begin!
#2 The best shopping trip EVER!
Setting up a business can be stressful to say the least – but it does come with some perks. One of those perks was the opportunity to go on our business set-up shopping spree to buy lots of little bits and bobs for the salon – it was so much fun, and we definitely shopped till we dropped! Some of our favourite purchases are our retro 746 telephone in French blue (which we know so many of you love too!) our large vintage wall clock, and our Nespresso coffee machine which means you can enjoy fine quality coffee whilst you sit back and relax!
#3 Our very first Christmas party
To celebrate our very first Christmas in Earlsfield we wanted to keep it close and local, so we decided to show our support to a great local and independent business in the area, The Eclectic Collection. The festivities went down with an outstanding seven course taster menu which featured a delicious steak tartare, turkey wellington, and white chocolate cheese with pear for dessert. It was an array of beautifully crafted creative dishes which kept us and our guests feeling filled as we had a merry time celebrating Christmas together!
#4 Baby Arthur gets his first haircut 😊
Being in the heart of Nappy Valley (otherwise know as Earlsfield) we’ve cut a fair share of children’s hair! But our most memorable kiddies cut must be when 3-month-old baby Arthur came to get his first little haircut. Not only was this the cutest, most adorable haircut we’ve done, but he is still our youngest client to date!
#5 Magdalen Nursery Fair
Another one of our most memorable moments was spending an afternoon networking at the Magdalen Nursery Fair. It was lovely to see so many of our regular clients and spend time getting to know the community of Earlsfield outside of the salon. We had so much fun catching up with our clients, playing with the children and supporting other local businesses who kindly supplied lots of delicious food for the event!
