Gypsy Rose

Gypsy Rose Salon Opens

Friday last week saw the grand opening and launch night for a brand spanking new hair salon that’s opened on Abbeydale Road (just opposite Jameson’s and Forge Bakehouse). Gypsy Rose Salon has finally opened its doors due to popular demand and it’s all down to the fabulous Niamh Kavanagh. Some of you may recognise Niamh as the lead singer from local rockabilly band Carmen Ghia and the Hot Rods, but now the ‘50s fashionista is helping us all find that inner glamour goddess. As a fully qualified and experienced hairdresser and barber, Niamh specialises in all forms of hair from vintage up-dos to crazy pastel mermaid colours. You are bound to leave feeling like a total vixen. And it’s not just us ladies that are in for a treat as there’s a long list of loyal gents on her books too!

gypsy rose salonI originally found Niamh creating the most amazing beehive at Lou Lou’s Vintage fair and after having long, straight, brown hair for nearly two years I was desperate for her to get her hands on my locks and do something exciting. I now have bright blue hair! One thing that sticks out more than anything about having your hair done at Gypsy Rose Salon is the atmosphere. If you want to go somewhere that you feel completely comfortable and like part of the family this is the place for you.

DSC01357My appointment last week was a five hour session, and I could have stayed there another five! There’s nothing like knowing you can have a good old natter and a cup of tea – priceless. Speaking of price, you are not going to get overcharged here. Niamh is a big believer in the right price for the job – a full bleach, cut and full colour cost me less than £60 which is an absolute steal. With that spare cash you could even buy a few locally made gifts that Niamh is planning to stock in store as she is a big believer in supporting local business – think glittery Mexican sugar skull candle holders and funky one off pieces of jewellery. With 2016 only weeks away, try something different and get yourselves down there, I guarantee you won’t want to leave.

    Well, the Salon is just as fantastic as Niamh is. Months of hard work in getting the Salon ready were preceded by years of honing her craft to become one of the country’s top vintage stylists.

    Beautiful Lady, fantastic company, excellent salon brilliant prices.

    Good luck Niamh – you deserve it x
