Salon update….

What has been happening in the salon?

It has now been a year since we celebrated our 10 year anniversary last October! We therefore thought we would give you a quick update on what has been happening in the salon over the past year.

Firstly, let me say what a busy  few months we have been having, and it looks like it is set to continue in the run up to Christmas! Thanks again to all the team for working extra hard; especially on the extra busy Saturdays we have had!

Our salon continues to love being part of the local Stockbridge community. This year we have taken part in the Botanic Garden Wedding Fair which seen us working alongside Freja Fashion providing the hair and make-up services for the bridal fashion show. Could not reccomend their dresses enough they are truly stunning! We also took part in the local Stockbridge festival Stockfest. This was a celebration of the area with local businesses providing special offers and events for the locals. Kim and Holly also continue to attend local meetings regarding developments in the area to ensure we are up-to-date on  what’s happening in the community.

Blog updates and our Facebook page continue to be a hit with clients as they are able to keep up to the minute with information on appointments, products and special offers.

We continue to be open until 8pm on a Thursday and Friday with these times are proving to be very popular with clients. We now have up to 5 stylists working in the evenings to accommodate our clients.

Our Stylist Mark is back from London Fashion Week where he had a great time working on several shows over the weekend! Mark has some great photos showing some amazing hair and trends; check our Facebook page to see these.

Big congratulations to our Junior Stylist Emma on becoming a qualified Stylist! Emma has already built up a loyal clientèle in the short time she has been on the shop-floor! Emma also continues to provide the very popular Indian Head Massages as she is our only Stylist fully accredited in this treatment.

Clients have also been loving adding their beauty treatments to their hair appointments! We now offer all services in eyebrows, nails and lashes! We now have some lovely new Shellac and OPI nail colours in for Autumn!

We are also looking forward to getting our Head Stylist Mike Quigley’s latest photoshoot photographs up in the salon! All the photographs look amazing and it was so difficult choosing which photos to be printed! We finally decided and hope to have these pictures up in the coming weeks!

 We would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our clients for their continued support of the salon: we really hope that you continue to enjoy having your hair styled at Kim McGregor! We would also warmly welcome new clients to the salon- please feel free to call, or pop in for a free consultation. 

We  very much look forward to seeing you in the salon!

Beauty @ Kim McGregor

We are very excited to now be incorporating Beauty at Kim McGregor. For a long time now clients have been requesting manicures while they get their hair coloured. Clients are also keen to  combine both their hair and beauty treatments under the one roof and we are glad to announce this is now possible.

Whilst your hair colour develops why not get for eyebrows tinted and shaped or your nails filed and polished and leave the salon with both your hair and nails looking fab!

Royal Botanic Garden Wedding Fayre

Last month our salon was lucky enough to invited to be involved in the Annual Royal Botanic Garden Wedding Fayre. The show was to promote the gorgeous Caledonian Hall venue whilst showcasing many other wedding services. Our salon was responsible for the all the hair and make-up for the catwalk show. The stunning individually designed dresses were supplied by Freja Fashion and past brides modelled their own dresses which was a lovely touch! The day was a huge success all the models looked gorgeous despite the very early 8am start in the salon! We even had salon owner Kim shed a tear during the catwalk rehearsal as Mette from Freja Fashion told the bride’s  individual wedding dress stories and what made them each opt for a bespoke dress. Thanks again to everyone involved in the day and thanks again team for the very early Sunday morning start in the salon – great all round team effort!!
