2. Creating a 5* Client Experience

Karen Wright Hair Salon in Thornton Heath, Croydon, Client ReviewsCreating a welcoming, friendly and professional environment for our clients is a top priority in our salon, we know that for many clients it may be the only time they have seen a friendly face or had a conversation in some time. Your experience therefore, alongside enjoying a fabulous hair service, should be warm, fun and relaxing. 

Our stylists are highly trained to create the hair colour and styles that you love, we will listen to your needs and work with you to create your ideal look.

We love a good chat and hope that you feel you can discuss anything with us - our conversations are always more interesting than "so where are you off on holiday then?"!

4. Move More, Feel Better

Walking, Exercise For Good Mental and Physical HealthNot only does exercise help us to look our best by raising our metabolism, but it also helps us to feel our best by increasing serotonin. Serotonin is a hormone from the endorphin family that enhances positive moods and put a smile on our faces.

As little as 10 minutes can have a significant benefit to help you feel good, such as a quick walk at lunchtime. Once we have built stamina we could increase the exercise but it's important not to push too hard simply because of the "New Year, New Me" belief!

Perhaps you could join with a friend for a walk, the conversation and fresh air will make you feel great!

5. Drink More Water

Hydrate for Healthier Skin, Hair and Mental HealthWe know this is something you'll have heard often, but drinking enough water is important to look and feel our best, and so simple to do!

Water regulates body temperature, so the body and organs can function properly. Being well hydrated keeps joints lubricated, helps to prevent infections and delivers nutrients to the working body/muscle cells and helps your hair to look and feel softer and more manageable. 

When we are well hydrated, we see improvements in sleep quality, concentration, performance, and focus. It helps maintain levels of feel-good hormones and can help to reduce depression and anxiety, enhance calmness, and promote a positive mood. Add fresh fruit slices for taste and aim for 6-8 glasses of water per day.
