New Website!

Our new website is now up and live!

Redesigned by Laura –

After a little bit of a re-decorate in the salon, we have changed the colours of our branding to grey and black, using the red subtly here and there. We wanted to reflect the same in our branding online as well, so we have gone to a black and grey background for the new website:

New Bliss Website Background

The logo is now in white, and we have used a palette of greys, black and white for the website, with the red for links and highlighting text:

New Home Page

New Home Page

And whilst it may look a little different with the navigation at the top of the page, the structure remains very similar, so you can look up the details and prices of your favourite treatments, where we are, and find out a little bit about each of us.

We have added images here and there as an example of what we can do, like here on our “Eyelash Extensions” page:

Eyelash Extensions: Before and After

Eyelash Extensions: Before and After

And we have added a mini-gallery to give you some ideas on some of the other treatment and package pages, like here on our “Bridal Packages” page:

Brides Gallery

Brides Gallery

We are starting to add the products that we stock and sell, with pricelists and links for more information. The first to be added, was Skulls and Rubys!

As well as our contact details, an email form and a google map to help you find us, we have also added a new section – galleries! We have all of Niki’s wonderful nail art, from the glittery rockstar through to shiny shellac and everything in between:

So you have enough inspiration to keep you going for a while! We also have lots of pictures of Emma’s wonderful Hair-up Designs, and the girls working their magic!

Staff Profile – Carly Macauley

Meet Carly, one of our talented hairdressers…

Carly Macauley - Hairstylist

Carly’s career began in 2006, when she attended South Devon College and obtained her NVQ 1 in hairdressing, whilst being trained in house by the salon manager of a busy Paignton salon. After working there for a year, Carly was promoted to the Torquay branch, but left shortly after feeling she had more to give as a hairdresser. Carly moved to a local Brixham salon, where she felt she could reach her full potential and be closer to home. She studied for her diploma in Colour Correction, and a “TIGI” qualification in advanced cutting. Carly likes to keep up to date with what is current, regularly attending seminars including Loreal Professional and TIGI female and men fashion shows, but likes to do more traditional looks too. Her future ambition is to add her NVQ 3 to her qualifications, and to carry on enjoying working at Bliss with the girls, and meeting many more new clients.

So if you want to book in with Carly or find out more about hair treatments, give us a ring on: 01803 859289 or visit our website for more details.
