Please note

Masks will not be mandatory anymore, but your stylist will wear one if preferred. You are more than welcome to bring in outside beverages or enjoy a tea or coffee on us. What will not be changing for now is; we still do not have a waiting sitting area, we kindly ask that if it’s nice outside to enjoy the sun until your stylist is ready for you. Because we do not have a waiting area we cannot accommodate accompanying guests. 

We will remain as by appointment only. Thank you.
