Colour Me Beautiful
From starting at Timba Hair as the receptionist in 1999, Julie Williams progressed to Salon Manager in 2004 and is now recognised as the ‘heartbeat of the business’.
We asked Julie about the changes that have taken place at Timba.
“There were six members of staff when the salon opened and we now have a team of 14. Timba have always used Goldwell & KMS professional products and our sales rep and business advisor, Richard Robinson, (who has been involved in the hair industry for almost 20 years), was instrumental in helping the salon grow year on year. In 2014 Richard and his wife Rhiannon bought the business and Timba Hair & Beauty was created.”
Have there been a lot of changes to the salon?
“The original premises served us well but we recognized the need to develop the salon. A golden opportunity arose when the building next door became available. It is a much larger premises and has allowed us to design and create a beautiful working environment for the team, and make the salon experience both inspiring and relaxing for the clients.”
What sets Timba Hair & Beauty apart from the rest?
We have three separate colour and cutting zones and a VIP area. We are stockists of the new premium Kerasilk Treatment range and our team are trained to give bespoke, tensionbusting head massages which enhances the treatment experience. Your hair feels beautifully conditioned for up to ten washes.
We also love colour! We have team members with the prestigious Goldwell Colour Expert qualification. Richard was inspired by his wife Rhiannon (who is a scientist in cancer research) to create the UK’s first Colour Lab in the salon, of which we are very proud, and clients can watch the magic as it happens!
The support from Goldwell & KMS has been exceptional and we are very proud to use these professional only products, as we believe our clients deserve the very best in salon and at home. We have a KMS ambassador working in salon so we can advise the very best in home use products suited to each individual client, making sure we look after their hair when we can’t be with them.
Has the feedback been positive?
“Even better than we could have wished for. With the addition of two beauty treatment rooms, two nail bars and a designated spray tan room, we are now ticking all the boxes needed in a luxury five star salon, without paying City centre prices. We are open from Monday to Saturday and have convenient, free parking right outside the salon. To find out more, you can find us on Facebook Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
