Here’s to the next 8 years!

8 years ago an opportunity arose which took me by surprise but I knew that if I didn’t grab it by both hands, I would always regret it. My boss at the time William Guy was closing his Ashley Heath salon and creating a 1 amazing super salon in Ringwood. I approached him and asked if he would give me his blessing to open my own salon in his former salon in Ashley Heath. To my surprise he said yes with love and encouragement (you don’t meet many people as kind and genuine as William). Within a few weeks I took over the salon and renamed it William and Mary (I kept his name as an ode to him and his support) and began my journey as a salon owner. 8 years later, I still can’t believe I’m actually a salon owner and I have created a salon I’m so proud of with staff I love. It’s been an eventful journey and not always an easy one but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I love my little salon and my staff who have become my family. As for my clients, those who were with me from the start and those of you who have joined me along the way, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the last 8 years which would not have been possible without you all. I love and appreciate every single one of you. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank my sister Emma who started up the salon with me and helped me to establish William and Mary but has recently had to leave to look after her son who has autism. Without her, I wouldn’t be where I am today and although it’s bittersweet she had to leave, I know I always have her love and support without which I don’t know what I’d do. Here’s to the next 8 years! And thank you William Guy for making my dream come true ❤️
