“Leaving school at 16 I went to college in order to start my career as a hairdresser gaining an NVQ level 3 in Hairdressing”
“Going into the fast paced world of salon life as a young 18 year old girl was very overwhelming and resembled nothing of the sheltered college environment I had been used to over the previous 2 years.
So I decided to take a new adventure in life under the hospitality umbrella working my way up the pecking order from waitress to manager, exploring different areas of the trade and opening new doors on the way.
One day on my way home from work I found myself staring into a salon window, lost in a trance watching the stylists work there magic, immediately feeling a sense of reconnection and longing for what could have been.
A short time passed with this moment outside the salon still very much on my mind, and indeed a reality check was upon me. After some research I decided to email Popham hairdressing asking if they would possibly consider retraining me.
David and Shirley kindly agreed to take me under their wing and provide me with the tools and knowledge needed to be my authentic self…a hair stylist.”
“I had a superb hair cut with Ashli. She is a fun conversationalist and at the same time a very professional cutter. All in all a great experience!”
“Ashli has been colouring my hair regularly for two years now and really deserves a great review. She is an excellent, professional hair colourist and I am very happy with my hair colour and texture. I always leave Popham with a smile on my face, not just because I am happy with my hair, but because Ashli is always punctual, attentive, considerate, friendly and fun. I look forward to my visits and chats with Ashli. A big thank-you to her (and a hug!)”
“Such a joy to be back with Ashli today. I felt completely relaxed and at ease with her. She has so many amazing skills, especially attentive listening – she is just brilliant at that. I noticed too how impressive she is in her confidence as a professional – testament to Popham’s careful nurturing of their staff. Ashli gave me a first class service today, what more can I say, apart from it was lovely to chat with her once again! I am very happy with both cut & colour. Thank you!”
“I absolutely love my hair! Ashli did a fantastic job – I would definitely recommend her. She is always very friendly and welcoming too.”
“Really enjoyed my appointment. I wanted someone to take their time and give me a really good haircut and that is exactly what I got. Thank you. See you again.”
“Ashli was amazing, she really listened and took onboard what I was asking for and delivered! The service provided was friendly, professional along with a great vibe in the salon. My hair feels revitalised, thank you!”
“Ashli was great. I don’t really ever know what I want when I get my hair cut , so it was great that she was able to make suggestions about what would suit me. She did a great job and I am so happy with how the cut turned out. I will definitely come back next time.”
