After a short break we moved back into the front of the salon for a Hair Up and Make Up demonstration with Charlotte

followed by a Hair Up demonstration with Alice and Make Up from Lauren.

Alzheimers Society Memory Walk

Marion, Jo and Fiona were joined by a few friends, all of which gave up their own time and walked the 7km Memory Walk at the stunning Painshill Park in Cobham on Sunday 9th October.

The Memory Walk sees thousands of people raising money for a world without dementia across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. People of all ages and abilities join in, from grandparents to grandchildren, and even furry four-legged friends. They all walk together to celebrate loved ones affected by dementia, and raise money to reclaim the future.

So far Marion and the team at Sally Adams have raised in excess of £1000 which is amazing….HOWEVER we still have Raffle tickets available in salon at £5 each with 2 fabulous prizes to be won, If you would like to come into the salon to purchase one or two?! The raffle will take place on Saturday 22nd October all the money going directly to this extremely worth-while cause.

TEAM DAY HORSLEY PARK MAY 2016

Sally Adams Team Day 2016

On Wednesday 18th May, Sally Adams held our Annual Team Day at the beautiful venue of Horsley Park.
Every year we close the salon for one day to focus on our team and the business; working to ensure consistency and improve on the service we offer our guests.

We chose Horsley Park as this year’s venue as it is local to Sally Adams and our team members and offered us a stunning space both inside, in The Grand Hall for our training morning, and outside for our afternoon’s team building activity.


Our mission at Sally Adams Lifestyle Salon & Spa is to provide an environment that enhances our guests well-being & appearance, without detriment to the environment or neglecting the needs of our staff;

         - To be professional.

         - To be hard working and innovative.

         - To work as a team.

         - To be environmentally aware.

         - To be open communicators. 

 

In keeping with our goals, this year we organised the day to focus on enhancing our Communication Skills. The morning session was hosted with the assistance of the training team from Aveda UK, where we learnt how to recognise and develop the different forms of positive communication actions and behaviours.

After a fabulous BBQ lunch we enjoyed something very unusual as a Team Building Exercise….Duck & Geese Herding; which was not only great fun but tied in appropriately to the theme of the day - communication. The link was not as obvious to some as it was to others - we had to listen to the verbal instructions and watch the demonstration by the trainer, then work as a team to ensure the dogs, ducks and geese completed the obstacle course as required. Everyone had a great laugh, albeit it was raining so we got a little wet. There were prizes for the team who performed the best as well as a special award to 'Herder of the Day'!! At the end of the day, Sally presented our Annual Prize Giving Awards which also recognises the great efforts of members of the Sally Adams Team.


 

As a side note, while the Team were busy at Horsley Park, Adam was busy over-seeing a mini-refit at the salon. We have a great new wardrobe, improvements to the back-wash area and some other re-Instatement works following our flood over the New Year.


 

THE GREAT SALLY ADAMS BAKE OFF DECEMBER 2015

Sally Adams bake Off.

Over 3 dates in late November and early December, members of the salon and spa team baked their best goodies all in the name of Charity. We chose the Tiltwood Care Home in Cobham as our charity for this year’s fundraising; a centre which provides personalised residential, respite and day care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Marion also kindly baked and offered our usual selection of fabulous Christmas bakes continuing not only our support with our donations to this great local cause but also raising awareness of this centre.

We raised in total £750 and would like to thank our Sally Adams bakers, our Tasting Panel and lastly our fabulous salon guests who were all very generous with their donations for these cakes/bakes, at what is already a costly time of the year.

THANK YOU

 

 

STRESS FIX EVENT JULY 2015

Stress Fix Event

Sally Adams hosted for a group of local school teachers and support team, our first Stress Fix Event.

The purpose of the event was to introduce the Aveda Stress Fix services and products available in the salon and also stress-relieving techniques which can be used at home or at work; through massage and breath.

After the lovely group of ladies enjoyed their welcome drink, Julie, our Spa Ambassador talked about the different types of stress, some of the day to day symptoms and how we can try to manage those symptoms/feelings. The Sally Adams team that took part; Linda, Carla, Lauren and Alison along with Julie performed Stress Relieving Rituals on the ladies; including Foot Rituals, Hand & Arm Massages and Neck & Shoulder massages. Available on the evening apart from Prosecco, was a selection of clinically-proven Stress Relieving nibbles, such as Almonds, Blueberries, Dark Chocolate and Dried apricots and well as cups of Aveda Comforting Tea. All the ladies left with a Goody bag and 2 lucky ladies won fabulous prizes in the raffle; consisting of a bag full of the fabulous Stress Fix products and a 60minute Stress Fix Massage.


 

TEAM DAY COSWORTH PARK MAY 2015

Sally Adams Team Day 2015

On Wednesday 13th May, Sally Adams held our Annual Team Day at the fabulous Coworth Park in Ascot.

Every year we close the salon for one day to focus on our team and the business; working to ensure consistency and improve on the service we offer our guests.

We chose Coworth Park in Ascot as the venue this year. Coworth Park is part of the Dorchester Collection. The service provided by the staff there and the attention they pay to their guests is superlative - not to mention the magnificent surroundings. There is no substitute for experiencing excellent service. Our aim was for our own Team to understand how it made them feel and what we wish our guests to experience every time they visit us.

Our mission at Sally Adams Lifestyle Salon & Spa is to provide an environment that enhances our guests well-being & appearance, without detriment to the environment or neglecting the needs of our staff;

         - To be professional.

         - To be hard working and innovative.

         - To work as a team.

         - To be environmentally aware.

         - To be open communicators. 


In keeping with our goals, this year we organised the day to focus on enhancing our Customer Service. The morning session was hosted with the fantastic assistance of some of the Team from Aveda UK. We were also lucky to have Ann Costelloe, one of the senior managers at Coworth Park, who kindly took time out of her day to explain some of Coworth’s philosophy behind promoting excellent service. We had a great morning and felt very inspired and motived by the Aveda Team and Ann Costelloe. After a fabulous lunch in the glorious sunshine we enjoyed some Team Building exercises involving a beautiful walk around the grounds and adjoining polo fields followed by a fun session “Chocolate Tasting & Making Masterclass". At the end of the day, Sally held our Annual Prize Giving Awards to recognise the great efforts of members of the Sally Adams Team.


 

LITTLE PRINCESS TRUST DAY 2015

Little Princess Trust Day

On Sunday 12th April we hosted our first Little Princess Day at Sally Adams

We raised over £460 as well as provided the charity with 21 hair donations; in total 190 inches of hair, all of which can be used to make wigs for children with cancer and other hair loss conditions.

The Little Princess Trust provide real-hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment. As a result of treatment for cancer, most children will suffer hair loss as a side effect. Some boys and girls cope remarkably well but for others this can be very upsetting.

In addition they assist children with other conditions which also result in hair loss, the most common being alopecia. Their commitment to these children is different. Despite being set up to help children with cancer, the Trust is able to supply children that do not have a cancer diagnosis with one wig. Whilst they are unable to commit to supplying more than one wig to each child, they hope that this gesture will help the family whilst they decide on their long-term plans for dealing with this condition.

Thank you to everyone for not only their financial donations but hair donations too.
