Martine opened the hair and beauty salon with very little customers, originally opening the beauty salon back in 2014, and in 2016 she expanded and opened her hairdressing salon in the shop next door, her business has been growing year on year.
She loves feeding her team with all the knowledge they need to become great hairdressers and therapists and offers ongoing training and support for all her employees.
Martine is a true pro and very knowledgable, she loves the concept of organic, and more transparency in the beauty industry.

After leaving her job at a top salon in Truro and teaching at Truro College, Martine left Cornwall to head up as a newly appointed Toni&Guy Franchisee in Saudi Arabia.
Being a franchisee in Jeddah, was a great opportunity to educate, manage and work in one of the most prestigious new salons in Saudi Arabia.
Major is our front of house head of sales and marketing manager. He has a great passion for all things hair and beauty having trained in hairdressing when he was 17 years old.
Major is very eco-conscious, and plays his part in keeping his recycling to a maximum and his general waste to a minimum. He loves plants, and at one point had a plant family of over 130 named plants. You can find him in the salon sweeping up the guest's hair to take home, and place in his plant pots, it helps them to flourish, he says. We believe him!
You might see Major on the early morning journey to the salon, or last journey of the day, heading home on his bike. It's a great way for him to keep fit, and helps save the planet a little.
Major has a welath of knowledge with marketing and he is a very valued member of the team. Now and again he will be seen behind the chair, doing a blow dry or shampooing hair, he likes to keep his hand in.
The salon dogs are a feature now and again. This is Hughie, he is very chilled and loves being in the salon with his mummy and all the guests.
We are a dog friendly salon, and quite often the dogs that walk by will always try to walk in, and say hello.
