Northam hairdresser Sandra Ramsay, who runs Urban Wave Hair in Fore Street, recently welcomed stylist Helen to the salon who moved to the county all the way from Essex.

Sandra said, “I would like to say hello to everyone again as we reopen after the restrictions and look forward to seeing all of our loyal clients. Work since reopening has been amazing but very busy, so I felt now is the time to introduce Helen to Urban Wave to help the salon catch up with demand.”

Helen has three decades of experience since starting her training at a French salon based in both Essex and London during the 1990’s. From there she managed one of the UK’s top salons of the time before opening her own.

Helen said, “The business was based near where “The Only Way is Essex” was made so I have met and provided services for many of the original cast members and maintained the locks of several footballers wives, as well as many other high profile clients.”

However, Helen decided to take things a little slower two years ago and retired from the buzz of her hectic life as a salon owner. “Along the way I met the lovely Sandra who I am looking forward to working with here in the beautiful county of Devon.”

Visitors can rest assured that Covid safety measures, safety and cleanliness remain the hallmark of the salon and it will continue to stick to the rules as illustrated by the notice on the salon’s front door that UW participated in the BARBICIDE® COVID-19 Certification Course which is pertinent to the Professional Beauty industry and shows dedication to infection control in salons, spas, and barbershops.
