We’re Back & Raring To Go At Gavin Ashley Hairdressing in Bury St Edmunds!

The past few months have certainly been turbulent, to say the least, but we wanted to let all our wonderful clients know that now we have reopened our doors we will do everything we can to ensure you have a relaxed and enjoyable salon experience.

Rest assured, we are closely following Government guidelines to keep you as safe as possible during your visit. We are fortunate to have a large salon which makes social distancing easier, plus a highly experienced team who are regularly disinfecting the salon, styling stations and equipment between clients.

Coronavirus will not stop us from delivering an amazing salon visit for you, from the minute you book your appointment to the moment you leave. You can check out what the new ‘normal’ looks like at Gavin Ashley by watching our short video which explains a little bit more about what to expect.

It’s Social Distancing Without Feeling Distant

I would just like to thank all the staff for all your hard work in making us feel safe and thought about during this difficult time. You went out of your way to make things happen and although it wasn’t the same experience, it was still a very enjoyable one. Melissa, you did a brilliant-cut and colour. Thank you. I would also like to add that all the girls looked so smart and everyone was so friendly under difficult circumstances. With love and very grateful thanks, Wendy Fincham xx

Happy Birthday To Us!

We are delighted to have recently celebrated our 42nd birthday. Ironic really the relax of lockdown restrictions means we get to go back to work 42 years to the day the salon first opened!

We cannot wait to welcome back clients old and new!

PREPARING TO RE-OPEN - WHAT TO EXPECT at gavin ashley hair salon in bury st edmunds

The ‘New’ Normal At Gavin Ashley Hairdressing in Bury St Edmunds

Rest assured Gavin Ashley have a firm focus to keeping our clients and team safe whilst maintaining a spotless salon when we re-open. We have been very busy during the lockdown period and have worked hard to transform our salon, taking the social distancing, hygiene and safeguarding into account.

As recommended, we will be doing the following:

  • A deep commercial clean before reopening
  • We will be regularly disinfecting key areas such as door handles, styling stations, reception, till and toilet areas
  • We will provide a sanitisation station at the entrance to the salon
  • We will have sneeze screens in place at Reception
  • We have ordered lots of PPE including face masks, disposable gloves, disposable gowns and disposable towels. Staff will wear face masks and we will ask clients to do the same, in case of a delay in delivery of our PPE we would ask that clients come prepared with their own
  • Far fewer styling chairs will be in each section of the salon so that we can observe a safe distance
  • You will always be 2 metres from other clients
  • Stylists will be working from the same styling position all day
  • There will be fewer staff working on busy days
  • Clients will only be allowed into the salon when their appointment is due. We ask that clients come for their appointments alone. Partners or family members accompanying clients will not be allowed into the salon.
  • Shampoo room to be limited to two clients at any given time
  • Clients to hang their own coats up
  • In the first phase, no drinks will be served or magazines provided, clients will be asked to bring in their own
  • The back door of the salon will be open (weather permitting) to allow for extra ventilation as this may reduce airborne droplets
  • As we will only have enough chairs for Stylists to take one client at a time, styling positions will be sanitised after every use, we will not be able to work at full capacity and we will have no waiting areas. We would, therefore, ask that clients are patient as we try to accommodate the backlog of appointments. We will, however, be offering extended opening hours where possible.

Tousled & Messy Pixie Cuts & Crops

Take the plunge in 2020 with a short, messy hairstyle that requires little styling time! Simply apply a little styling gel or paste to create a textured, tousled look. Your Gavin Ashley stylist can suggest the most suitable professional hair products for you and your hair type.

Vintage Hairstyles with Volume & Bounce

2020 will see hairstyles taking inspiration from the swinging 60’s with lots of voluminous, 60’s bouffant looks and deep side partings. We love retro hairstyles at Gavin Ashley especially the classic beehive hairstyle and super short micro fringes. 

What’s Next For Balayage in 2020?

Caramel and blonde balayage hair colours are also known as ‘bronde’ and are set to be huge hair colours in the year ahead. Your skilled Gavin Ashley hair colourist will carefully hand paint soft blonde shades in vertical sections throughout your hair to give you a hair colour you’ll fall in love with.  

Messy, Choppy Bobs

2019 was all about short sharp lines and blunt cut bobs. 2020 sees the classic bob hairstyle getting a makeover with more relaxed longer bobs & lobs predicted to be very popular.
