We are excited that a new shipment of colourful bow cases has arrived in the shop – we have both single and double bow cases now available in a range of prices and colours. We haven’t had a chance to put them on our site yet, but they are on display in the shop.
Don’t forget to contact us to book an appointment for your next visit.
Although it is no longer a legal requirement to wear masks in the shop, in consideration to our customers, all our staff continue to wear masks and we would appreciate it if you would do so as well, there is also sanitiser at the door for your convenience.
