After leaving school in 2014 I knew I wanted to pursue career in hairdressing
I was particularly interested in starting an apprenticeship. I had a few interviews at other salons in Oxford, but after hearing such great things about Popham through David and Shirley’s son Ted I knew Popham was for me. What stood out the most was the friendly vibe that I got from everyone – it’s like one big family!
After a year and a half of training I qualified with the company gaining my NVQ level 2 and the Popham diploma. Almost immediately after this I went on a week long course to Sassoon which really gave me the confidence that I needed.
Now almost a year into my qualification I’m still really enjoying my job and love that I can change how a person feels about themselves through their experience here at Popham.
Outside of work I enjoy socialising and catching up with friends, the majority of which are at university where I go to visit them.
“A Brilliant salon and a brilliant stylist. I am very happy with my new haircut. After having a baby 4 weeks ago my hair feels fabulous and Molly was really great – her skills are amazing. Thank you again.”
“Molly is simply brilliant at everything – cutting, styling, colouring, communicating, the whole package! She listens properly (a real skill) and makes sure she understands before proceeding. She has an amazing future ahead of her.”
“Thank you Molly – I adore my new highlights! The service at Popham is always incredible and I refuse to go to any other hair salon! Everyone is always so friendly and I always leave feeling very happy with my hair. Thank you Molly and Popham! xx”
“Molly was wonderful. Great lowlights and trim and relaxed conversation; thank you so much. This was my 4th visit to Popham’s in Summertown and as usual didn’t disappoint. Very friendly, helpful staff and the coffee’s good too!”
“I absolutely love my cut and colour. From start to end Molly was so attentive and has done an outstanding job. She really understood what I wanted and talked me through the whole process. The whole team are friendly and will to go above and beyond!”
“A brilliant service from Molly as always! She listens so carefully, takes great care in all that she does and ensures you feel looked after the whole way through your appointment.”
Fab from start to finish. Very welcoming and professional throughout!
Best of all, I Love the colour.
Thank you Molly.
Molly was great today, she listened to my colour needs and interpreted exactly what I wanted. My experience at the salon was nice and relaxing, with a lovely head massage and a good coffee. I really couldn’t fault the standard of the service at the salon and the way Molly looked after me.. I will definitely return!
“Molly was great – competent and ready to listen to what I had to say then executed a great cut. Fantastic tea too.”
“The staff are lovely, the hair cut was exactly what I have asked for, couldn’t be happier! From the moment I stepped in I felt welcomed, Laura immediately offered me a drink took and my coat, Molly was listening carefully to what I wanted before cutting, asking questions and making sure she understood my needs. I would highly recommend this salon.”
