Really? An update on our Nottingham salon…

So we’re being forcibly shut again, here at nkd ( ) Nottingham. This time with less than a day and a half’s notice. And how did we find out about this shocking news? Because a client kindly rang us and alerted us to a news update that had just popped up on the Nottingham Post’s website. So despite the fact …

nkd ( ) Leicester – Open Again at Last!

After 22 long weeks, we have finally been given the green light to reopen our beautiful Leicester salon, and we couldn’t be more chuffed about it. Unfortunately, anything facial/lashes & brows related is still not on the treatment menu but hopefully those restrictions will be lifted soon, so that before long we are back to being able to offer all …

We miss you Leicester!

We thought it was important to share an update on Leicester. Although we are really excited to have our Nottingham Salon back open and seeing our clients again has been amazing, we can’t help but feel sad about nkd ( ) Leicester. Obviously, with Leicester still under local lockdown policy we aren’t allowed to open but that doesn’t mean that …

24th June 2020 – Still Shut for Business

For the avoidance of any doubt, I would like to confirm that unfortunately, nkd will not be allowed to reopen on Saturday 4th July along with our hairdressing and barbering friends. At this stage, we’ve got no indication from the government about when our reopening date may be. This news has obviously come as a severe blow, and is really …

12th June 2020 – What A Mess!

I trust you’ve had an OK week….. So this time last week, I told you that we would be reopening our appointment book around now to all those clients who had either purchased a “10 for 8” package at the end of 2019, or who already had an appointment purchased and booked in for sometime during the period 23rd March – …

9th June 2020 – Be Kind.

I saw a post over the weekend that resonated with me. The following are not my words, but they are very much my sentiments. As lockdown starts to ease….. you decide for you, I’ll decide for me. None of us have the same circumstances (medically high-risk child/ family member or a business about to go under, etc.) Let’s all stay …

3rd June 2020 – Why I Switched to Aluminum Free Deodorant…

As always, I hope you’re well today. For me, a really important part of this lockdown has been to use the additional time and headspace that’s been available to think about, and most importantly trial/start new personal initiatives which, in my old life, didn’t get a look-in. These have all been things that were previously on my radar (often for …

29th May 2020 – One Step Closer to Opening…

So it’s the end of yet another gloriously sunny week, almost the end of May and another week closer to “normality”, if such a thing exists right now. If you’re someone whose life will change again on Monday 1st June for whatever reason, then good luck with the transition. Ironically, I think the change back to “normal” (I hate that word!) …

22nd May: There’s Still Time Yet?

Thank you if you’re one of the many clients I’ve received some really useful feedback from this week, following my plea for it in Monday morning’s email. The comments are still coming through thick and fast, which I’m so grateful for. You’ve all provided me with so much food for thought already and I’m also very pleased and excited to …

18th May 2020: Making nkd ( ) a Better Business

I’ve tried hard throughout this lockdown period to use the time as best I can to make nkd ( ) a better business. An example of this is changing our appointment booking software. With this will come another important change, which I know that many of our customers will be pleased to hear…. We will no longer require payment in …

Re-Opening after C19 – It’s Coming!

Until further clarification or updates are received from the government, we are now working to an earliest possible reopening date of Saturday 4th July. We will issue further updates in June about the re-booking process. Clients who purchased a 2019 “10 for 8” package, and clients with existing appointments booked and purchased will be given booking priority before all remaining …

4th May 2020 – Beginning of the 4-Week Countdown?

Despite the massive amount of uncertainty that still exists around the government’s exit strategy and until we’re advised differently, I’m still going for Monday 1st June as my internal reopening date. So that’s 4 weeks’ today. I’ll be sending out information soon about how you can go online and either reschedule or book your own appointments from that date onwards. …

1st May 2020: April – A Month to Forget…. Or Remember?

Wow. So it’s 1st May today. I for one will be raising a glass tonight to celebrate the fact that April 2020 is over. It’s certainly going to be a month that goes down in history isn’t it, but for all the wrong reasons. I guess that applies more than anyone to our esteemed leader, Boris Johnson (!). I spoke a …
