We want everyone to feel comfortable, so the choice is yours. Face masks and sanitiser will still be available when entering reception. #staysafe #FreedomDay

If you forget your face covering or sanitiser, don't worry we have plenty! . If you don't have a direct contact for your stylist then send us a message or call 01244 313606 🎄

Dear Clients, as I'm sure you are aware, the imposed lockdown means we have had to close the salon from today and we will be reopening on the 3rd December, if all goes well. All appointments until, and including, 2nd December are now cancelled. Your stylist will be contacting you to reschedule. If you don't hear from us then please send a message.
*please note: Edward is now fully booked in December and has begun a waiting list*
Take care and stay safe. ABRA

[08/12/20]   Wow! What a busy opening month! We have now worked through most of our waiting list and the diary is opening up for new bookings again, please send a message on here or call 01244 313606.

Hoping everybody is safe and well. Just a little update as there has been no news on lifting the measures on the lockdown, the call divert on the salon number 01244 313606 is successfully coming through to myself for any queries. I have personally cancelled appointments until April 30th, if anything changes we will contact clients with existing appointments. #staysafestayhome, Edward.

[03/31/20]   Hello everyone, hope you're all safe and well. I'd just like to update you all on the call divert from the salon. Unfortunately, after requesting it last Tuesday, the company in charge of our phone lines has still not completed the service. If you or anybody you know wants to contact the salon, please send a message on here and I will gladly share my direct phone number. Many thanks, Edward

Dear Clients. As per the announcements yesterday, im sorry to say that as of today I have had to close Abra Hairdressing for the foreseeable future. Me and Nick are contacting our clients about existing appointments and I will be contacting clients of Simon with booked appointments. It seems an update from the government will come in a few weeks, so stay tuned for information. At present I am personally not offering rescheduling as we can't promise a reopening date. Please be patient, look after yourselves, and those you can help. Let's get through this together. A divert is being set up for the salon number: 01244 313606, which should get you through to myself. Thankyou to those who have sent supportive messages, please don't hesitate to contact me on here, by phone, or Instagram @edwardjohn_hair. Much love, Edward.

[03/21/20]   A little note to ease concern. We are a small team in a large salon, we have plenty of space to keep our distance while enjoying your hair appointment. If anybody has concerns and would like to be kept at a distance from other clients, we have extra sections away from the main salon where your service can be carried out. Amongst all this unease and uncertainty we are hoping to give you the pleasant experience you are used to and keep our lovely client base happy, any concerns then please do contact us.

[03/18/20]   Hello Everybody! What a crazy time we're going though! We just wanted to let all our lovely clients know that it's BUSINESS AS USUAL for us, until we are advised otherwise your scheduled appointments are safe. If, however, you feel unwell with the reported symptoms of Coronavirus and feel like it is unwise to come to your appointment, we would like to say that it is absolutely no problem to reschedule your appointment to another time when this has all blown over (fingers crossed that's soon!). We are doing what we can in the salon to stay extra sanitary, we have to look after each other and follow the advice that we have been given so far. Saying that, we hope you're all fit and well, any questions contact 01244 313606 or send a message on here. Many thanks, Abra.

rachelryanphotography.co.uk What a day we had at Emma and Matt’s beautifully colourful Eccleston Village Hall Wedding. Given that we were predicted torrential rain all day I think we did pretty well! Not that rain was going to spoil anything for Emma and Matt. They were well prepared with big umbrellas, wellies and a positiv...

The good old salon service VS at home kits. The pictures speak for themselves. The before shows an at home attempt at Balayage with an off the shelf product, the after is 3 hours of work in salon today correcting it and creating the desired outcome.
We know hair services can be pricey, but it's worth saving the pennies and having what you want rather than paying twice to correct an at home product.
Trust your stylist, trust a professional, a box will never compare.

Hair is a work of art.

Many clients will think that you arrive for the appointment and your stylist creates magic there and then.

We pride ourselves on preparation and skill, today, Edward has been playing with colour pigments in preparation for a drastic colour change tomorrow.
The result was something quite mesmerising so he decided to take a picture to show you guys that we are thinking about your appointment long before you arrive.

We will be sure to share the colour change with you tomorrow 🥰
