Kate's hairdressing I booked at last minute (my first experience) as I was desperate to have a hair cut keeping in my mind that if I try somebody new there is a risk involved and I was ready to take it on. It took me a little while to get my head around what it means "mobile hairdresser' as it is not clarified on the treat well side, it means that you go to Kate's home (house). The street was not so difficult to find, but the house is at the very end of the street (on your left hand side) and funnily enough I struggled for a little while to work it out where exactly it was as I was on the other side of the street... ( people from the street are aware of Kate being a hairdresser)
So I was inspired to give a go to Kate because of the reviews, although I am not very good coming to somebody's else house for that matter. (her prise reflects that, as I would argue that her work would be otherwise much more) I arrived 20 min. earlier as I gave my self more time to find the place... Kate was busy with somebody colouring they hair, but she sited me in a bedroom where she cuts hairs and I felt at easy, comfortable. Upon my arrival, it was very straight forward, walking straight up the stairs and although it is in her personal bedroom her set up is like in a professional hairdresser, chair etc.
Kate is talkative hairdresser :0) saying loads of sense, she can discuss anything at hand, as well can give a broad advise on hair if you shall ask or be concerned.That was my first experience while she paid her full attention to her old client while I was waiting. I have seen a result of her colouring somebody's hair, I'd like to say, I was impressed.
Then when the client left, she took me bang on time. I liked the energy of Kate, as well as warmth. I am one of these clients who are so hard to please.
We discussed loads of things, what I'd liked as soon as I mentioned 'I do tend to use natural products' she immediately offered advise on what I was concerned about. (without chemicals) .
When it comes to my hair cut. I washed my hair before hand, so she just made it wet, but gently told me she would prefer me to have it washed in her place for a next time as it is better for having a hair cut, but also explained she did not want to over stress my hair by washing it too much. (where on earth a hairdresser speaks to you in this way or explains everything? Not many places).So if somebody wants to just treat themselves Kate is right one to go to.
She discussed my hair cut with me and what I wanted and explained what she was going to do. The end result was better than when I walked in. I am very fussy client and can get very easily frustrated as I am able to see ... or I know what I wanted or how I wanted. To give Kate complete "tick" I would need to come maybe a few more times.
I have to stress one thing, SHE CARES ENORMOUSLY ABOUT HER CLIENTS AND WORK it is felt in everything she does. She loves her job, and said that so many times.
I was leaving bang on time. I will not mind going to her house again, (well set up for her mobile business). What's more I would like to try her few more times, to see . I am ready to take that risk. She is as good as any hairdressers on a high street, offering better prise! amazing explanations! wonderful client care! skilled haircuts! and also on the top of that can advise on style ! She is inspiring in her attitude to work and her lover for what she does.
