Butterflies Essentials Salon
Updates to Butterflies during this time
Please find information and updates below with regards to all things Butterflies related and the latest on the covid 19 virus.
WEDNESDAY 13TH MAY – I HAD HOPED TO UPDATE AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENTS SUNDAY BUT THEN IT GOT MORE DETAILS ADDED MONDAY SO I HAVE BEEN CLOSELY MONITORING MY EMAILS AND UPDATES FROM THE NATIONAL HAIRDRESSING FEDERATION WITH WHOME IM REGISTERED AND A MEMBER WITH.
THEY HAVE JUST SENT UPDATES AS FOLLOWS – THE GOVERNMENT HAS CONFIRMED THAT THE HAIR AND BEAUTY SALONS IN ENGLAND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RE-OPEN UNTIL 4TH JULY 2020 AT THE EARLIEST.
IT REALLY IS SOMETHING THAT WHILE I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER I FULLY STAND BEHIND THE REASONS BEHIND THIS TO PROTECT LIVES NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS WORTH MORE THAN A LIFE.
THURSDAY 16TH APRIL – THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY, SO WITH THE LOCKDOWN AND SOCIAL DISTANCING VERY MUCH STILL BEING A NEW NORM FOR A MINIMUM OF ANOTHER THREE WEEKS I DONT KNOW HOW LONG THIS WILL GO ON FOR SO THE SALON WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
WITH GUIDELINES STILL VERY MUCH STILL IN PLACE WITH REGARDS TO THE 2 METRE DISTANCE RULE, THATS NOT A DISTANCE WE CAN PROVIDE OUR SERVICES WITH, THE SALON WILL CONTINUE TO BE CLOSED UNLESS THE GOVERNMENT STATES IT IS SAFE OTHERWISE.
TAKE THE TIME TO ENJOY TIME AT HOME DON’T THINK OF IT AS “STUCK AT HOME” CHANGE YOUR MINDSET TO “SAFE AT HOME”
As I sit here to write this I am at home isolating with my daughters safe, but that doesn’t mean I am living a life of luxury.
I miss my clients, going to work is a big thing for me, both physically and mentally sharing experiences, laughter and sadness, good times and bad.
The salon is a safe space for all and for many its their bit of pampering and also company if living alone.
My time at home gives me chance to spend time with my girls, try new recipes, cook, get in the garden, I even have managed to read a few books.But that doesn’t mean its not hard, every day brings its only challenges being in the house 24/7 for all but our daily exercise allowance.
Taking on the task of a teacher, which if im honest I feel im failing at, I lack patience and training however I am reminding myself that I am their mother I am teaching them other things, as I said we have baked, we are growing our own vegetables and have enjoyed cooking together and having picnics in the garden.
However with all that said it is hard, its hard for all of us with social media and people sharing the happy photos of themselves its great, but the reality is if their photos are anything like mine you dont see the house thats a mess, the mountain of washing, or hear the shouting (more often than not between each other, but you know when in Rome) so when you see the fun and the smiles enjoy those moments, we are all missing our family our friends our loved ones but hopefully we can start to get back to a new sort of normal gradually as and when its safe to do so.
BUTTERFLIES ESSENTIALS SALON
When we are allowed to open our doors I know so many of you are desperate to get in and get you looking and feeling fabulous again im not sure how it will work yet to keep all of you as safe as possible I will take as much advice from professionals and if it means also working a Sunday or longer Saturdays we will try and accommodate.
We miss you as much as you miss us, please wait for us.
Iv had requests for “home visits” and color to apply, im really sorry this isn’t something I can do, it really isn’t safe for me or you to be going and doing home visits, the color we use is for professional use only im not legally aloud to give out and I would not be covered by my insurance, Id like to think you come to us because we are professionals so please trust us this is for the best.
If you are struggling with having roots you are not alone, there are a few options – stay in, you shouldn’t be leaving your house much anyway.
Wear a hat,
Order a spray on root spray, there are lots of color options out there that will keep you going til we are back,
And my personal favourite – EMBRACE THEM it won’t be forever.
I hope you are well and if you need anything please get in touch, even if it is just a chat.
I did post a mini video on Facebook a few weeks ago go check it out for the best tip I could give.
BUTTERFLIES HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTIST
Im sorry that some of your weddings have been cancelled and are being rescheduled im working with you as much as I can, please if you have your wedding coming up get in touch if you think you may have to move your wedding. I would much rather be proactive and help if I can.

While im not currently in the salon I will be calling from my mobile and some of you may have had emails already as I have worked through the night to try and contact some of you whose email addresses I had on our database.
Butterflies Essentials Salon is the latest addition to the Butterflies branding.
It’s a new and luxury salon based in the peaceful village of Kedington, nestled on the borders of Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex.
Established by internationally published hair and makeup artist Danielle Baker who felt everyone should have a little luxury brought into their everyday salon experience.
With a team of knowledgable friendly staff, quality professional products and a choice of luxury hot drinks why wouldn’t you want to indulge yourself in the Butterflies experience, all based in a stylish modern salon?
Within the salon, we offer unisex cutting and styling services, a variety of colour services, and children’s hair.
And as the salon evolves we already have plans in place to expand into more beauty services and can’t wait to share our passion for the very best with you.
We are proud to say all our products we use within the salon are cruetly free, and we have a number of vegan friendly options too.
Trust us to make you and your hair feel that little bit more special. All you have to do is relax and enjoy yourself.
Don’t worry for those of you who still want the freedom of having hair and makeup done for weddings, bridal, photoshoots and events owner Danielle is still able to offer the freelance services on location that was always offered by Butterflies so you can take a breath knowing there is no mad rush of trying to rush trying to time your day around getting to the salon.
