We are delighted to kick off our ‘Hair Salon of the Month’ series of blogs with a worthy winner!
You see, when it comes to hair and beauty makeovers I automatically think of a person getting an 'on camera transformation'...hair, makeup, clothes....you get the picture....so when we visited BLACK AMBER Hairdressing recently, it struck me very quickly that I was witnessing one of the most stunning 'salon makeovers' in recent years!!!!
Previously operating as Talking Heads with hair salons in Rathfarnham and Templeogue, this salon group has experienced a genuine transformation. I really liked Talking Heads, the relaxed and friendly atmosphere, the attention to detail in both cutting and colour and the fact that I knew I was in the hands of a motivated professional who knew how to make me look and feel great. So I was apprehensive!!! I am delighted to say, however, that all the stuff I loved about Talking Heads has been captured in and upgraded by BLACK AMBER. The salons now comprise 2,000 sq. ft of luxurious surroundings and an attention to detail normally reserved for only the best salons internationally!! BLACK AMBER provide great hairdressing, fantastic customer service and all at a very affordable price.
When I walked into BLACK AMBER Templeogue it was like entering a boutique hotel....a well positioned reception area 'manned' or should that be 'wommaned' (mmnnn??) by a very friendly and welcoming front of house expert....the extremely comfortable waiting area was spacious, bright and well stocked with up to date magazines and look books....I was getting 'drawn in' to BLACK AMBER.
While there, I took the opportunity to meet with BLACK AMBER Managing Director and Head of Colour Roy Kennedy. I knew Roy from a previous life when we met in London on an international colour shoot for L'Oreal Professional. I asked Roy about the hair salon transformation, to share his motivation for BLACK AMBER and his goals for the future....
It was he explained a “natural progression for the salons and the salon teams. We had built a very loyal base of clients with our focus on 100% customer satisfaction and technical excellence and it was time to upgrade the brand image....after all who doesn’t love an upgrade! In addition we always encouraged our teams to understand the needs of every client and to use their expertise to deliver cuts, colours and styles that made clients look and feel fabulous and this just worked!! We also found that stylists react very positively to such encouragement and we are happy to say that they rarely leave. This is key to our business and it's evolution” Roy continued..."Of course adding Liam Kennedy, one of the most experienced and popular names in Irish hairdressing to the team was a big boost to the salons as he guided the transformation from Talking Heads to BLACK AMBER"!
BEUTiFi says......."A great salon group with a very bright future!! Keep watching this space...."
