Back to Hair

Gone for the chop!

With more rural hair dressing salons that urban in Norfolk, I decided to drop my city ways and head back to my country 'roots' to where I had my first ever hair cut!


Norfolk is full of wonderful hair salons, the sheer number being nominated in the Muddy Awards is testament to that. Importantly not all talented hairdressers can be found in city salons and indeed there are a plethora of small salons across Norfolk with only a Facebook page for promotion and a huge local client list.

I decided to go back to my first ever hairdressers – Fountain Hair & Beauty in Watton as I’d been hearing some great reviews and thought I’d put them to the test.

Owner Louise (and my first hairdresser) has successfully converted her home into a medium size hair and beauty salon, consisting of four downstairs areas, two beauty rooms and a bridal dressing room. You can hire the whole salon for special occasions and this is the perfect place for girlies to get pampered in privacy for their big day. Whether that be a high school prom or wedding – it’s not just Muddy that gets the VIP Bucks Fizz treatment.

My hairdresser was the lovely Andreea Andrei and she started by carrying out a stretch test on my hair to check the condition (surprisingly not too bad) which then helped her pick the best products. Fountain Hair & Beauty use all organic products, which gets a big muddy tick and you don’t get high on chemical fumes.

I prefer the natural look but Andreea was desperate to show me how good the cut was and insisted on blow drying it straight. I know how tricky it is to get a bob right, believe me many a time I’ve ben in tears over a wonky bob. I wasn’t disappointed and it’s the first time in years I’ve received so many compliments – always a sign of a good cut!

Much to my mums annoyance as she loves it looking all neat and shiny, I do prefer the just got out of bed look but for a special occasion I might dust off the old GHD’s.

I’m already planning my next trip back (6 weeks not 6 months) as I want to maintain this healthy looking style plus I swear my face looks lifted!

I’ll let you decide which looks best!
