Busy summer

Summer months are always busy in the salon, everyone getting ready for their holidays and looking good in the sun. And it’s no exception in the wig department. We are extremely busy over the summer, helping people look their best and finding different solutions for different people. Our Total Cover Plus clientele has gone through the roof in the last couple of months and the salon is now seeing at least one TCP client per day which is great for our small and growing business and great that the word is spreading about how brilliant these hair systems are. Get you appointments booked early to avoid disappointment as Adrian is quite fully booked already for the rest of the summer, especially weekends, and me only being in 2 days per week, am very busy on the days I’m here and booked weeks in advance. Some interesting cases to tell you about next week, so come back to see what I’m getting up to!

It’s been a while…..

Hi everyone,

Its been a while since ive written a blog, the social media bubble has taken over and I’ve been concentrating a lot on the Instagram and setting up a new Facebook page, more focused on what’s going on on a daily basis with us and Total Cover Plus, lots of client photos and information about how things are working. The previous page we had was a bit messy and I felt I needed to clean it up and get it more focused on what’s actually relevant. So if you are an old follower of the page, and haven’t yet seen the new one, our new page address is; http://www.facebook.com/essexwig

the instagram account which is working really well, is now available to follow @essexwigcentre and the Twitter account is the same as always @info_essexwig

Just a reminder to all potential clients that all our consultations are FREE and no obligation, come in for a friendly chat about your hair loss needs and requirements and see if I can help you, or point you in the right direction of the right solution for you.

Glad to be back blogging! If there’s any topic anyone would particularly like me to cover in my next post, please comment below and I will do my best!

Off sick……

Hi everyone,

Just to to let you all know that I’m not going to be in the salon this week, ive some how managed to get gout in my foot, and can’t put weight on it at all at the moment, so the doc has said to stay off my feet this week while the medicine gets to work. Long days standing in the wig room are a no go for me this week 😦 so sorry to have let anyone down for their appointments, but do believe I am seeing most of those who were booked in this week, next week, so look forward to catching up with you all then.

While im off, I am going to spend some time making sure the Instagram account is up to date with all of the work I’ve done recently, so bare with me with all the posts you are likely to see coming up in the next few days! Hopefully you will find it interesting!

Follow the instagram account directly @essexwigcentre, and if you haven’t already, then please like our facebook page and follow us on Twitter too!

Busy Saturday’s…..

The salon is buzzing with life today, every stylist fully booked, the beauty room busy all day and the nail bar too. The wig centre is busy busy too. Today we have seen a regular total cover plus client get a new system fitted and cut in, two chemotherapy consultations, a returning wig client coming in to try on eight different new wigs which she can hopefully choose from and a regular alopecia client coming back for a new wig also.

We have also had news today of some exciting new ranges from our suppliers, a special range for small and large sizes, meaning that we now have up to date styles for those with different sized heads, not just two or three to choose from! And a great new range of mens wigs, meaning the guys can go through chemo without feeling that they have to go bald with it, which is great. There are a great range of different quality bases and different hair types, which means we should now be able to cater for everyone that comes in without needing to create bespoke wigs for special circumstances, which keeps the cost down for all involved which a great thing to be able to offer. Looking forward to showing lots of new clients the great new ranges. Dont forget get to book your Saturday appointments well in advsnce if you need them. The weekend is the busiest time of us, so if you need to see us over the weekend, call ASAP to avoid disappointment.
