There is nothing we love more at Octopus Hair than shouting about the amazing work our team does, and today is one of those days. We have recently been celebrating after our trainee Morgan has passed exams to become fully fledged graduate stylists and we are SO happy.
The lovely Morgan, who has been a regular feature at Octopus Hair for quite a few years now. In fact, she started working with us every Saturday when she was only 14 years old. Five years later and we have seen her not only grow into the lovely young woman she is today, but also excel from a beginner to the wonderfully confident stylist she is now.
Recently celebrating her 19th birthday, Morgan is an absolute delight to have in the salon. She always greets our clients with so much happiness and enthusiasm and loves nothing more than making sure everyone who walks through our doors is looked after, and most importantly, has fun too!
Morgan’s confidence is growing every day, especially as she is now starting to build up her own client base. Seeing the great work she is already doing makes us so proud, and the best thing is, this is only the beginning for her. She isn’t afraid to try new things, offer advice and make suggestions; we are so proud of everything she has achieved and can’t wait to see her grow even more over the coming months.
Morgan still has space available to take on new clients and is eagerly waiting to welcome you in and show you just what she can do. Whether you, or somebody else you know, are looking for a different stylist or want to try something fresh, why not let Morgan work her magic and show you what she is made of. She is eager to get her hands (and scissors) onto some new heads so give her a call at the salon and book in with her today!
A big warm Hello to you all from Dana, Aimee, Kylie, Lauren, Eli, Lula and Morgan.
We have missed you and can’t wait to catch up and welcome you back to the salon.
As you can appreciate, we have been closed since March and as such have a slight backlog of appointments to manage.
We have planned a phased return of hair services with the appointments pre booked first, followed by those who had added themselves to our waiting list. We have been working very hard over the last 16 weeks planning our return and putting into place extra procedures to keep our staff and customers as safe as possible.
Some of the services we WON'T be doing straight away include:
Due to extra safety measures to minimise the spread of the Covid-19 virus and keep you safe, your visit to the salon will be a little different to the usual experience.
Before you leave home please use the toilet to avoid the need to use the salon facilities.
Please arrive on time. Early arrivals will have to wait outside and late arrivals may miss their appointment slot. Don’t be concerned if the door is locked.
I was grateful for the government grant we had, by no means did it cover the costs for the whole of lockdown. I need to ensure we get back to a viable business and continue to offer you the best service we can.
For this reason we will be suspending most of our discounts including Tuesday colour rescues and Thursday colour sale. We will continue to support our NHS and continue to offer this discount to NHS workers Tuesday-Thursday!
THE GOOD NEWS IS you can continue with your loyalty scans on the app...if you haven't updated it or registered now's the time! You can also use any gift vouchers and I'm freezing our annual price rise which normally takes place in April!
We're also going to have extra costs involved in providing you with a safe service and so there will be an unavoidable £5 covid charge added onto your service.I know this is not what anyone wants to hear and this will stop when we no longer need it.
As a salon we follow strict infection control procedures and our salon has always been a safe place to visit due to continual training and public health guidance. Since the outbreak of Covid-19 we have put into place additional safety measures always following current evidence to minimise the spread of the virus.
I’m hoping we’ll all adapt to this ‘new normal’ very quickly and I’ll be looking at changes in the guidelines regularly. I will be doing everything to ensure your visit is as fantastic as it’s always been.
Meanwhile ‘Enjoy the sunshine and we will look forward to seeing you soon’.
With very best wishes

We're itching to get back behind the chair and to make you feel fabulous! Although we don't have a date yet, we are busy making plans so the salon can open safely.
So, rather than me bombarding you near the opening with information, I'm hoping to drip feed changes as we make them. Here's the first 3, let me know what you think!
1. CARD PAYMENTS ONLY-we stopped taking cash before we closed to help prevent the spread of the virus, but boy our cashing up was so much easier at the end of each day. So for both of those reasons when you come into the salon it will be card or contactless pay only.
2. YOU STAY COMFY-we'll do everything you need from the comfort of your chair. You wont need to visit our reception desk at all! We can take payments from your station, scan your app, fetch your home hair care and book future appointments for you too!
3.YOU TIME!-That's right, this time is all about you so with the new rules we're expecting come on your own...great excuse for some true you time. In fact we may not have any waiting chairs, I'm still measuring out the floor space :)
We hope you love these changes...I think they all add up to an even more pampered experience.
See you soon
