Sally Adams Latest News
On Saturday 7th June we said our Goodbyes to Marion.
Marion joined the Sally Adams team when the salon opened in July 2007 and since then worked as Front of House, where she was an invaluable member of the team. Marion however has decided she needs a rest from us all so has left and is now enjoying a well deserved rest.
We would like to say a massive Thank You Marion for all the hard work she has done over the years and wish her a relaxing retirement.
On Sunday 22nd April, Fiona will be running in the London Marathon.
Here is what Fiona has to say about why she's doing this and the Charity she has chosen to raise money & awareness for, Hospice UK;
"The reason I'm doing the marathon is to raise as much as I can for Hospice UK. The help I received looking after my mum and the care she had at the end of her life was second to none. Even after she died, the support carried on. Having a positive focus is important to me and thememory of my lovely mum. At the age of 47 I never thought I would be doing my first marathon ߘ젢ut I'm going to give it my best shot, so thank you everyone for the donations, no matter the amount, I really appreciate it!"
In Support of Fiona we are now selling Raffle Tickets at £5 each and have 3 fabulous raffle Prizes available

Congratulations to Vicky & Charlotte
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Vicky who has been promoted to Creative Technician and to Charlotte who has been promoted to Senior Stylist.
These promotions are in recognition of the commitment and success both Charlotte & Vicky have both shown to developing their skills and careers, with Sally Adams.
On Sunday 24th September, Charlotte bravely took part in Tough Mudder, in aid of this wonderful charity, Winston’s Wish.
For those who don’t know about Tough Mudder; it is a 10-12 mile race, battling against 20+ crazy obstacles along with way, mostly involving mud, water and at times electricity!!
The Winston’s Wish Charity supports children, young people and their families after the death of a parent or sibling. They also help the people supporting a bereaved child or young person.
So far, we have received £290 from our fabulous guests and with this added onto what Charlotte had already raised, she has achieved an amazing total of £1090 (her target was £500!!). If you do still wish to donate, we will have a collection bag in the salon until mid October.

ALICE'S 1ST DAY RUNWAY STYLING COURSE AVEDA ACADEMY
What a day! First day at the Aveda Academy. The most jam packed day I've ever had before in the academy. We practiced our basic styling techniques on mannequin heads that will creat solid foundations for out looks, these include smoothing and curling with brushes, ponytails, pinning and plaits. I learnt lots of new variations of each which I'm looking forward to trying again ߘꊼ/p>

This was my first day at London Fashion Week! I was put in a team of 8 that went to Freemasons Hall, Great Queen Street. Our look was 'strand' braids that were put into different styles.

I was part of an amazing team who pulled it all together backstage at the end and had such a brilliant day!!! #avedaeducation #avedauk #lfw

"Such a different day today! The styles weren't confirmed until we arrived which meant when we did start we had to move FAST! I was just getting in and helping wherever I could. It was a total buzz at the end when we had 15 models to complete in 20mins! I had a fab day and worked with some amazing inspirational people once again ߘa href="https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/avedauk/" target="_blank">#avedauk #avedaeducation #avedaartist @jonreymanhair @cimoneuk

This promotion is not only in recognition of the commitment and success Alice has shown to developing her own skills and career with Sally Adams but also in becoming our very own Aveda Full Spectrum Ambassador and Sally Adams In-salon Educator.
James Valentine, Aveda Salon Education Executive commented
"The Colour Ambassador Program was specifically designed for exciting young talent like Alice. It gave her the opportunity to share her knowledge and expertise with Aveda and we were delighted that she passed the certification process. We could tell that Alice had thrown herself into the project.After attending workshops and training over 18 months at the Aveda Advanced Training Academy in London it was evident that the experience has helped develop Alice into a strong technical hairdresser. It was amazing to see all the hard work and dedication that was put into preparing for the Certification day. Well Done Alice"
