“Initially, it was very surreal when we closed the doors, not knowing for how long, or how we could stay productive whilst we were closed,” says James. “What helps is that everyone is in the same boat and instinctively people turn to the internet and social media. This prompted me to look at our own website and social media to look where things could be improved.”
“Lots of our clients have become good friends over the years and we see them on a weekly basis, so closing the salon is like losing a friend and that’s why it’s so important me for to stay positive and check in on them on a regular basis,” he says.
“Prior to this lockdown I was meant to be taking part in the London to Paris bike ride in July in support of the charity, The Little Princess Trust along with Great Lengths UK & Ireland brand director Chris King and commercial director, Julian Murray,” he says. “Sadly though, due to the current restrictions, it has been postponed until next July. This has not stopped my training though and certainly on the positive side, I have the advantage of extra free time and unusually quiet roads!”
