A Unique, Covid-Secure Salon with a Difference

November 9th, 2020

Georgie is an experienced London-trained hairdresser and Colour Analyst, and now opens her NEW Redken boutique salon at 30 Lion Street, Abergavenny. Georgie has worked in multi award-winning salons “The Chapel” in Islington and “Gielly Green” at The Four Seasons, where she was named top hair cutter by lipstick magazine.

She loves creating tailor made colours that suit your skin tone, and haircuts for every texture and ability. She prides herself on listening to her clients to help them achieve their desired look.

A balayage, foliage and highlighting specialist, Georgie believes it’s imperative to keep the integrity of your hair at all times. Whether you want to be a Californian blonde, a beautiful multi-tonal brunette or just mask those pesky greys, she’s got you covered!

Georgie says: ‘’ It’s just not as simple as one cut fits all. A haircut and colour needs to be manageable at home, and not just look good when you leave the salon. That’s why it has to be personalised to suit your lifestyle, taste and personality’’. With a wealth of knowledge and a friendly approach, Georgie enjoys giving her guests back their confidence with a great cut and personally prescribed colour.

The salon operates as an entirely covid-secure environment, with full PPE worn at all times and a strict policy of one guest (or household) at a time. Deep cleaned and disinfected between each guest, every booking will also be given complementary PPE as required. Opening soon, the salon will take bookings from Tuesday–Saturday, and offers two late closures per week (9pm). A skin test is always required for new guests and a complimentary 15-minute consultation is always added for new guests.

10% off for all new guests when you quote “FOCUS” and for NHS staff with ID card.
