Those of us with overgrown roots and split ends rejoiced as hair salons re-opened after the most recent lockdown. And for the team at Lou Lou’s in Gullane re-opening meant a new-look salon, new ideas and renewed optimism.

If you couldn’t wait to head back to the hairdressers, after the most recent lockdown, to have your unruly mop sorted out then just imagine how frustrating it must have felt for stylists who were waiting months to pick up their scissors once again. It’s been a frustrating and challenging year for those in the hair and beauty industry. Yet, behind the scenes many salon owners, including Louise Salmon owner of Gullane-based Lou Lou’s have been coming up with new ideas and plans for the future and rethinking their salon’s concept, to ensure their businesses bounces back successfully. Louise said; “The last year has been a bit of a yo-yo for us. But we’ve used the time to refurbish and decorate, so the salon feels fresh and new – clients are excited to be back, the team are excited to get back to work and there is a good energy throughout the salon. 

Working alongside Louise is trainee stylist, Elizabeth and fully qualified stylists; Jo, 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 and are the only Aveda stockist in the county. After months of relying on our best hair dryer and DIY skills, our hair may well be in need of some extra TLC, and help is at hand with Aveda’s Botanical Repair professional treatments. Louise explains; “We’re so happy to be able to offer our customers this new treatment from Aveda. This ten-minute treatment is amazing, it instantly strengthens so your hair is visibly revived, shinier and naturally full of life. Plus it’s 93% naturally derived from plants, and scientifically formulated to work on all hair types and textures, while also being safe for use on colour treated and chemically processed hair. It’s also vegan, cruelty free and silicone and sulphate cleanser free so you can look good and feel even better about using our high-performance hair treatments.

Along with their natural products, 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 good hair day.
