12th of April – here we come!

Following the government’s announcement on the 22nd of February, we are really hoping to open our doors and welcome you back on the 12th of April – we have missed you all so much!

Our phone lines for pre-bookings will open from Tuesday the 6th of April from 10am – 3pm (excluding Sunday) with our salon opening and resuming normal hours from the 12th of April. We have attempted at least once to contact all clients who had appointments booked during lockdown to reschedule and now all future booking enquiries can be made when our phone lines open on the 6th.

As always thank you for your patience and overwhelming support.

Sue, Sarah and Team Sands xx
