Author James D Mortain cut the ribbon for the newly relocated Urban Wave Hairdressers in Northam on Sunday. The event was well attended despite Storm Ciara raging outside.
James told Ray Goldsmith: “We all have dreams, which is how they remain until you add a few ingredients, which are a sprinkling of luck, a heap of self-belief, and a ton of dedication. It’s good to see that Sandra has put all that together because we’re standing inside Sandra’s dream right now. It’s great to be part of that on this special day.”
Prior to relocating to its new corner spot at the junction of Fore street and Cross street, the salon’s owner Sandra Ramsey first set up shop in Northam Square in 2014 and moved to Cross street in 2018.
In that time the business has enjoyed a loyal clientele and continues to grow. Sandra said, “I fell in love with hairdressing 25 years ago and have been in the business ever since. I love my work and the amazing people I get to meet. I’m so looking forward to my journey in Northam. It is an amazing place and so are the people in Devon. I’m very lucky.”
Sandra achieved an A+ in her training qualifications and continues to train when new courses become available, ensuring she can accommodate all aspects of hairdressing for men and women including: Colour, colour correction, balayage, hair extensions, bridal hair and advanced colour and cutting techniques. She is also a fully trained barber, trichologist and an advanced bridal stylist. She has also trained many advanced Petroc hairdressing students, where she also teaches.
Sandra has been a big fan of James’ work for a long time. His new book ‘Dead Ringer’ will be available from the 21 February at www.jamesdmortain.com and will also be available at the salon.
The salon’s motto is ‘Life isn’t perfect but your hair can be.’
