Tell me a bit about your salon/business
We are a holistic hair salon and we believe in promoting inner beauty just as much as outer beauty. The salon was born from my own struggles with mental health and learning to love and appreciate myself more by using holistic elements such as aromatherapy, reiki and crystals. These elements are incorporated into the salon as a way of introducing clients to different therapies. We pride ourselves in being a sustainable salon.
