Hairdresser Sandra Ramsay, who owns North Devon’s Urban Wave Hair, moved into and fully renovated new premises just before lockdown, as we reported in February, and so was disappointed at having to close her dream salon due to COVID-19, not least at the financial implications.
But Sandra stuck to the rules, always wearing a mask when going out and observing social distancing wherever she went, so the salon could reopen as soon as possible.
In love with hairdressing
“I fell in love with hairdressing 25 years ago and have been in the business ever since,” she said. “I’ve never appreciated my job so much until I couldn’t do it. I’ve always loved the work but even more so now.
“The fact that people have been happy to come back is really rewarding. In fact, I am fully booked until September, which I am very grateful to my loyal clients for.
“I love the amazing people I get to meet and now I’m looking forward to continuing my journey in Northam, which is an amazing place and so are the people in Devon. I’m very lucky.”
To offer visitors safety assurance you will see a notice on the salon’s front door that Sandra participated in the BARBICIDE® COVID-19 Certification Course which is pertinent to the Professional Beauty industry and shows dedication to infection control in salons, spas, and barbershops.
Maybe it’s time to make an appointment and give those Covid-19 locks the chop and pop along to North Devon’s Urban Wave Hair.
