We take training very seriously at Octopus HQ and pride ourselves on finding the best people to join our family and then watch them grow into amazing stylists, and that’s exactly what is happening now with our very own Courtney.
Working with us for 14 months, Courtney has been a natural in the salon since she first walked through our doors. She has been building great relationships with our clients since day one and has shown us nothing but determination and drive to be a successful stylist one day.
With that in mind, we are really pleased to share that we have only gone and promoted her to graduate stylist....a position that we think she is most deserving of! This now means Courtney will officially be colouring and blow drying hair in the salon and we can’t wait to see the transformations she is going to make.
Alongside this, we have lined her up for lots of training courses over the next few months so she can really get into the role and explore colour and styling and put her own stamp on it within the salon.
We're so excited and happy to provide this opportunity for Courtney and also be able to share it with you all too. If you’re not familiar with her, then where have you been? Don’t worry though, it won’t be long before you’re recognising her in the salon. We absolutely adore her; she’s caring, reliable, funny, kind...everything you’d expect from an octopus stylist, and the best thing is, this is only the beginning for her.
So join us in raising a glass to celebrate the start of another team Octopus adventure as we congratulate Courtney and we can’t wait to see just how amazing she is going to be with us! Go girl!
We have seen some incredible hair colour transformations take place in our salon over the years and we are constantly being surprised at the wonderful results they bring. However, every now and then, even as colour experts, we are taken aback when we see new trends coming through, and that is what's happening to us right now.
Only a few weeks ago we were astonishing our clients with vibrant pinks and purples and now we have something new on the scene, that is the complete opposite, and might actually take you a little bit by surprise too: mushroom!
Yes, you heard right – mushroom hair colour is a thing and its happening right now in our salon! Now don't fret, we are talking colour here, not some weird fungi potion that's hitting the shelves, and when we say colour think Portobello mushroom and then we'll definitely be on the same page. That’s right, think rich, earthy and neutral; a colour combo that is proving so beautiful, you're not going to want to wait any longer to try it yourself!
Mushroom shades work really well for everyone, in particular if you’re blonde or brunette because they provide the right balance of light and dark. Starting with an ash brown base, a combination of lowlights and highlights are then used to create the finished look. It’s the ideal opportunity for blondes to try out darker shades and brunettes to play with lighter colours and if your sporting a few grey hairs, don’t worry, mushroom brown will fix that, no problem!
