Over the last year, there has been a big hole in the Octopus team because our lovely Aimee has been off on maternity leave, however we're all getting more and more excited because it's not long until she's coming back to work and the whole gang will be together again!
If you are already a client of Aimee's we can image you're just as excited as we are to hear this news, but for those who are new to the salon and haven't met her yet, now is the ideal opportunity to find out more about her.
As colour lead, Aimee has been working at Ocotpus Hair for 10 years and is a well-established, experienced stylist who has an amazing eye for colour techniques and helping clients choose the right shades for them. She's the girl to go to if you are having a colour crisis because she has a great ability to know what will and won't work and can offer the best advice for your hair.
If you're feeling somewhat overwhelmed with the colour choices out there (because let's face it, there are a lot to choose from) or just want to discuss what will work for you, book in with Aimee because her knowledge and experience is priceless and you can guarantee you will walk out of the salon feeling like a new woman. Aimee is a true girly and an absolute expert when it comes to making you look and feel fabulous, and she can't wait to come back and get colouring again.
Aimee will be returning to the salon on 23rd May and her appointments are already filling up. If you would like to book in with her, give us a call today. In the meantime, read on to find out a little bit more about her...
