De-Lovely through and through …



De-Lovely Beauty Salon …….. owner Kate’s warm and personable nature is evident from the moment I stepped into her beautifully appointed salon, greeted with a smile and an outstretched hand :)

Kate spoke to me about her initial vision for the salon and her drive and determination from the beginning …. to create and maintain purely ‘customer focussed high standards of service’ for all of her clients. Her ultimate goal, ‘to pass on new discoveries, whilst being realistic to achievable

Don’t be afraid….

Don’t be afraid….

Don’t be afraid…!

“How scary can a salon experience be??” I asked …. Chatting to a selection of people ….all complete strangers I ‘accosted’, whilst in a ‘truck-normous’ queue for a Halloween costume shop in Leeds this week! …..

“What, if anything, do you find particularly daunting or frightening about your salon experiences as a whole?” …. here’s what they said…..

1/ ‘Getting your ideas across…’ ‘How to explain to the stylist how you’d like your hair to

…Customer service!?

…Customer service!?

I do believe that in some circumstances … it is the stylist, beauty therapist, nail technician that the customer visits ….. Ok.. it does help enormously if they are a skilled professional and carry out a top class service too!

But the professional’s interaction with us, as the client, is really important. Putting our trust in that one person’s hands - we seek that connection early on. In most circumstances - I believe it’s this connection which determines whether or not that client comes back or not ….. I

So what is.. ’a Sea of Salons’ ?

So what is.. ’a Sea of Salons’ ?

‘a Sea of Salons’ is a creation that has evolved (both in my head and on various scribblings!) over a number of years.

The main aim of my blog is too provide a central point in which I’d like to highlight and promote the professional services of salons in and around the Lincolnshire area, thus providing the general public with all manner of up to date salon activity and information, products, services, reviews, personal experiences, training opportunities, recruitment etc …. pretty much ‘all things salon’…..

About me


Hi I’m Helen

Since being mesmerised at just 10 years old, whilst at a friends house - watching his mum having her hair cut I realised; ‘that is what I want to do’. So, no surprise then, that after leaving school, despite comments to dissuade, I trained and became a hairdresser myself.

Since then, in the wonderful world we live - my life has turned corners and crossed streets, but the job I love still found me dealing on a day to day basis with ….. hairdressers :)

Call us what you like - we’ve heard it all! But you’ll not find a good stylist or beauty therapist who doesn’t have a wealth of information and understanding of ‘what people want’? …. (And they’ll enquire about your night out/holiday/weekend too - happy days!)

Of those experiences, loves and understanding of the hair and beauty business - meeting all kinds of people along the way, I have found myself starting a blog that is ‘all things salon’ ….

So, in a sea of salons ….. which do you choose? What do you look for? How do you decide - there are so many!?!!

Your 'me time' is important - seek that 'little bit extra' from your salon experience….

Signature
Enjoy
