We’ve all ventured into uncharted hair territory only to walk out with an accidental bob, a botched fringe, and probably some tears. The salon experience is something we should enjoy, not dread. At Lou Lou’s in Gullane, not only can you truly trust them with your tresses, but they’ll also ensure your visit is a delightful experience.
Admit it, you’re not prepared to trust just anyone with your hair. Getting your hair cut or coloured is a very important task. You need to be able to trust your hairdresser and be certain that he or she understands exactly what you’re after. The first quality to look for in a hairdresser is obviously professional expertise. The team at Gullane-based Lou Lou’s take great pride in achieving the highest professional standards possible, to give clients the level of care that they deserve. Owner Louise Salmon says; “There needs to be a sense of trust and understanding, so that you come out of the salon with a hairstyle that looks and feels fabulous.”
Working alongside Louise is apprentice, Elizabeth and fully qualified stylists, Jo (who has recently returned from maternity leave, and works Thursdays and Fridays), Danielle and Taylor, who between them all have over 57 years experience in the industry. Lou Lou’s senior stylists specialise in ladies and gents cutting, and Danielle has extensive knowledge in barbering. Both Taylor and Elizabeth provide hair extensions expertise including; tape, micro rings, mini tube, fusion bonds, la weave and invisible weave.
And it’s not only professional standards that the team at Lou Lou’s take seriously. They’re advocates of all-natural beauty products too. As the only Aveda stockist in the county, Louise explains; “Natural products, such as Aveda’s, which are plant and flower-based, are not as aggressive as man-made ingredients and are less damaging to both the hair and our environment. Natural emollients are great for styling and wash right out, versus synthetics that coat the hair, generating product build-up which can create dull, heavy-looking hair.” Another product synonymous with beauty and sustainability is Davines – made from the highest quality natural ingredients, the family-run company’s products are renowned for being a luxury to massage into hair and skin. Plus, all staff regularly attend courses with Aveda and Davines to keep up-to-date with the latest trends and products on the market.
The team at Lou Lou’s encompasses a holistic approach to their services, they’re attentive and listen to what their clients want in order to better anticipate and satisfy their needs. Aiming to make every client’s visit a delightful experience, making every day – a perfect hair day.
