Clients will find it easy to remove colour, using a standard shower head over a bath or a sink. My assistance may be required.
Do I need to wash my hair before you arrive ?
Haircuts : If it is our first meeting, I prefer to see your hair in its natural dry state so we can chat and I can understand your needs or concerns.
For further appointments please wash as close as possible before the cut, please shampoo and condition hair as normal.
Colour :please leave dry/unwashed for me, thank you.
What areas do you cover, do you charge for travel ?
I cover Oxford and surrounding areas, there is no travel charge for anywhere within a three mile radius of Oxford city centre, I charge a fee of 50p a mile for visits beyond this zone although for group bookings of two or more this fee does not apply within reasonable distance.
What hours do you work,do you work evenings or weekends ?
I am able to work any day except Sundays and Mondays, and any time between 9am and 6pm on weekdays 9am-4 pm Saturdays (With exception for weddings and special occasions)
What made you decide to become a hairdresser?
From a very young age I have been creative and 25 years ago I found my love and vocation in hairdressing.
I enjoy meeting new people and especially making them feel and look the best I can .
I have made genuine friendships with clients and feel hairdressing at home can ease the pressure of busy salon visits making it more enjoyable for myself and my clients.
Do you cut childrens hair?
Yes, if the child is comfortable and not distressed or scared See price list for details.
How much notice do I need to give for booking?
I recommend at least two weeks in advance although sooner will be more preferable, last minute bookings are also available sometimes due to cancellation.
If you need to cancel or reschedule ,as soon as possible would be appreciated
Thank you .
