WHO DO YOU KNOW WHO'D LOVE A STYLIST WITH A SPECIAL OFFER LIKE THIS!

If you have any friends or relatives who'd love both a special offer AND a stylist who's a great listener with the skills to deliver a style they'll feel great wearing I'd like to introduce them to Kasia who will be joining the Octopus Team on April 28th as a Creative Designer. Kasia has a flair for hair and a passion for making people feel good about themselves …exactly what you’d expect from an Octopus stylist!

To tempt them to give Kasia a try, for a limited time only we are offering a Cut & Blow Dry with her for £20 (a saving of £16) or they can upgrade and have a colour as well for just £40!

Could you spread the word for us .... we'd really appreciate it but please makes sure anyone who wants to take advantage of savings like these calls the salon on 01604 756685 ... A.S.A.P. before Kasia's introductory offer closes.

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.

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.

Today’s post is dedicated to all you lovely gentlemen out there who love coming into the salon, but don’t get enough mentions in these blog posts….until now! That’s right guys, this one is all about you!

Now some of you may be surprised to hear this, but we actually have quite a lot of men who love to come and get their hair cut and styled by us, and we love seeing you come back again and again. So much so, we’ve been doing a little bit of thinking about ways in which we can add to your salon experience and we are really excited to tell you we are now fully trained and ready to offer male grooming as part of our salon package.

So what is male grooming and more importantly, what does it entail? Well, in addition to your usual haircut, we are now offering you the opportunity to indulge in getting those little extras tidied up with a bit of in-salon waxing.

Don’t worry, we’re not here to scare you, we’re here to pamper you, and when we say waxing, we’re talking about getting rid of those unwanted nose, ear and eyebrow hairs. That’s right, there’s no end to our talents! Our stylists are now fully qualified in these areas of waxing which means you have the perfect excuse to take some extra time out for yourself and indulge a little bit longer at Octopus HQ.

If you’re reading this and are thinking you could do with a bit of a tidy up, then stop right there and give us a call. We’ll get you booked in and all you need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy some time out.

What are you waiting for, gents? It’s your turn to be pampered now!

KYLIE IN THE SPOT LIGHT...

Octopus April SM Posts 10

Technical haircuts are always a popular style to go for, but it takes someone special with a good eye, creative flair and a no-messing approach to attack this look if it’s going to be done right.
Step aside people, and let’s all give a warm welcome to our resident Hair Director, Kylie.
If you are on the lookout for a style that’s sharp, blunt or edgy that requires something a little bit extra to create, Kylie is the person for you. As one of our longest members of staff at Octopus Hair, Kylie has built up an extensive portfolio of loyal clients who never fail to return to her.
“Kylie is amazing! She never fails to make me feel so good every time I have an appointment with her. I have a tendency to hold back when it comes to my hair, but she has this incredible way of encouraging me to try new looks and I can’t tell you how much it has boosted my self-esteem. I would be lost without her! ” Emma Brown, Octopus Client
With a mass of inspirational ideas, Kylie has the knack of knowing when a style will or won’t work, and will always offer her expert advice to ensure you walk out of the salon looking and feeling like a million dollars!
Not afraid to attack the riskier styles, or create something fresh and on trend, Kylie is without a doubt, the person to book in with if you need a confidence boost, or just want to try something daring. She’s not shy when it comes to cutting and colouring hair, and always has her clients best interest at heart whenever she is making these decisions.
If you would like to arrange an appointment or consultation with Kylie, give the salon a call today and we’ll book you in. In the meantime, you can find out a little bit more about Kylie here with our latest interview...
