Going pink for Breast Cancer Care

admin Beauty, Blog, Hair

Grace is proud to be raising funds for the charity Breast Cancer Care throughout October.

As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month we’ll be making donations to Breast Cancer Care and having plenty of pink days to help raise awareness and funds.

The team will be going pink throughout the month, as follows:

  • Week 1 – pink feet
  • Week 2 – pink tops, t-shirts and jumpers
  • Week 3 – pink hair and/or hair accessories
  • Week 4 – pink jewellery

If you’d like to join in the fun and wear something pink during your October appointment, go for it!

We’d also love to raise a huge amount for the charity, so feel free to donate via us or directly to Breast Cancer Care.

One of the region’s most popular salons…

admin Beauty, Blog, Hair

In a matter of months Grace Hair & Beauty has become one of the region’s most popular hair and beauty salons.

Opened in late 2014, the beautiful salon is nestled on Stamford Bridge’s Main Street, and offers a wide range of services in a relaxing environment.

The experienced, friendly and professional team is passionate about ‘on-trend’ colour and cutting techniques, and the salon stocks the latest Wella products, but it’s not just about following fashion as salon owner Georgina explains:

‘We regularly enjoy training sessions and keep abreast of the latest trends as you’ll see from our website blog, but above all our services are tailored to meet your needs; we listen to you,
discuss the options, browse styles on the salon iPads and give you results you’ll really love.’

This friendly, personal approach is proving very popular. 

‘Absolutely divine!!’ client Liz Robinson recently wrote about her visit. ‘Given how fussy I am about how I have my hair cut I am delighted with it. Definitely recommend a visit to see Georgina and her team whether it’s for hair or beauty. Such a welcoming, relaxed atmosphere.’
