The ‘Invisibobble’

On first impression I was slightly bemused by these little gadgets! And I'll be honest ..... after catching their name, my thoughts were.... 'Invisible'?? .... How so?? - it's a bright coloured plastic spring?!

Noooooo, how wrong was I?! .... The name 'Invisibobble' refers to the fact that it is a 'traceless hair ring'. So simple, yet so versatile and every 'long haired lovelies' new best friend :)

....they do also come in a multitude of colours from neutral and clear tones to 'submarine

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
