Our salon assistant Abby has been with us since last summer. She is always running around keeping the salon looking clean and tidy. However, she gives an awesome head massage so think yourself lucky if you get Abby for your hair wash and head massage!
We thought we would take this chance to chat to Abby. We wanted to know why she chose to work for Locks and Shades, what she loves and hates, and a little more about her.
So Abby, why have you chosen to join the Locks and Shades Team?
My mum first told me about Locks and Shades. It was a new hair salon in Peterborough we both decided to try out. That was about 2 years ago and we haven’t been anywhere else since. I love the atmosphere at Locks and Shades, everyone is so friendly. When I saw they were hiring for a Salon Assistant job I jumped at the chance.
What do you think is the best thing about Locks and Shades?
The best thing is the commitment and dedication all the hairdressers have. They are so committed to making clients feel like the Queen from the minute they walk in and as they leave. All the team are really friendly and chatty naturally. This creates the nice atmosphere. The hair stylists work really hard to make sure clients are always happy with their hair style.
Talking of hairstyles, what is your favourite hairstyle Abby?
I love the straight and sleek look. However I will admit to being quite boring when it comes to my own hair. Every now and again I will have a little play with my hair but it doesn’t go much further than simple braids or half up and down.
Have you ever had any hair nightmares?
Yes! But they weren’t my fault! My mum decided to give me a bob hair cut when I was a child. This was not a good look for me. It was the classic bob with a box fringe. If you’re not sure what I mean, think of a female lego character. It was not a good look for me, but it was definitely the ‘in-style’ at school.
Which celebrity do you think has the best hair?
I love Emily Ratajkowski’s hair. It always looks so nice and fresh. You can clearly tell it has been well cared for. However, I have to admit to loving Kylie Jenner’s hair. The colour of her hair makes me want to get my hair coloured. I know that some of the hairstyles she has are wigs, but she still looks awesome in the looks she creates.
As you know from being a salon assistant Abby, we love to talk holidays! What is your dream holiday?
I would like to go to the Bahamas and visit Pig Island. It’s a place where you can swim with wild pigs. I think it would be amazing! Have a Google of it and you’ll see what I mean. The pictures are stunning and it would certainly be a memorable experience.
What would you do if you won the lottery?
If I won the lottery I would definitely book that trip to Pig Island in the Bahamas. I would literally spend all the money if I won the lottery. People say it would be too much to spend, but I reckon I could do it. I am the biggest Shopaholic at the best of times, and that’s without unlimited spend! I would just the money to live my best possible life.
So, backing away from, hairy pigs and back to hair; what is your top tip as a salon assistant Abby?
I would recommend that you always use the correct products for your hair. By doing this you can maintain the health of your hair. Since starting at Locks and Shades I have started to care much more for my hair and can really notice the difference. My hair feels so much healthier now I have stopped buying the hair products in the shops that contain silicone!
Why not ask for salon assistant Abby to wash your hair during your next hair appointment? We can guarantee she’ll give you an awesome head massage that is literally to die for!
