Leicestershire Salon celebrates NHS and Front-Line Workers by giving away FREE salon sessions

George’s Hairdressing has been inspiring the ladies and gents of Leicestershire for almost 40 years across its two salons located on Allandale Road and Oadby.

But during lockdown, they were the ones who became inspired by all of the hard work demonstrated by NHS staff and Front-Line Workers across the country.

Which is why they decided to kickstart their very own ‘Glamsformation’ campaign, to recognise the true efforts of all the inspirational NHS and Front-Line workers across Leicestershire the best way they can – with a FREE session in the salon, giving opportunity for people who have gone above and beyond in recent months to have their story heard.

The Glamsformation Campaign took place on the George’s Hairdressing website during lockdown, where friends and family of NHS and Front-Line workers could share stories and nominate them for a salon session, where they would win a cut, blow-dry and style with a complimentary glass of bubbly – all for free!

The campaign was originally meant to see one lucky winner but Salon Director, Katie Katon, found the task of only choosing one person to be impossible and has decided to treat all nominees (there was over 100)! All of those nominated have now been informed and are having their appointment scheduled in.

Salon Director Katie commented:

‘The NHS and Front-Line workers of Leicestershire have continuously inspired us, not just during lockdown, but over the years. We want to say a big thank you to them and this felt like the perfect way for us to start.”

She further explains: “Lockdown has been hard for many, but we’ve been very fortunate to have been able to furlough all of our staff and see the full team return to our salons. It’s been hard work reopening, especially with the local lockdown changing our original opening date, but it’s been nowhere near as hard for us as it has been for our NHS and Front-Line workers. As hairdressers, we get to hear all kinds of inspiring stories from nurses, doctors, carers and more every day – so it will be a great feeling to give back to them in the best way we can.”

For George’s Hairdressing, giving back to their local community isn’t just a ticking a box on their PR plan. At their Allandale Road Salon, they have a facility they call the ‘Jakki Williams room’ which offers a comprehensive service for clients suffering from medical hair loss such as alopecia or cancer treatment. This service includes a full consultation costing just £25 which is redeemable off a wig, wig ordering, wig cutting and styling by senior stylists qualified through the MY NEW HAIR training programme. George’s Hairdressing also support The Bold Over Club, a support group for people suffering from medical hair loss. The group meets bimonthly on a Sunday at the same salon, where people can meet others with similar conditions.
