This year Frizz & Freckles has gone through a bit of a rebrand, alongside a new website, new products and a new look I have also been keeping myself busy trying to come up with ways to help promote my shop and reach a wider audience. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the opportunities that trading online gives you but as anyone else with an online shop will tell you its hard being stuck behind your laptop all of the time.

A few weeks ago I was offered the most wonderful opportunity. Lets just say the small business Gods had heard my prayers and well and truly answered them!

The lovely Emily from Browns Salon in Loughborough had her own secret plans at the time to expand her empire by consolidating her two (ridiculously successful) salons in to one AMAZING new uber salon. She got in touch with a very cryptic text and next thing I knew I was being offered the opportunity to open my very first concession shop inside her salon. (All hail the small business Gods!!) I of course said yes instantly, silently inside taking a mental stock take to see if I could actually fill it, and so the start of a whirlwind shop building began.

My husband and I donned our DIY hats and began to transform the area into a little Frizz & Freckles haven. (and I frantically bought more stock.) Eventually, after a few iced coffee’s and elbows in paint pots we got there and my little shop dreams came true. Im so pleased with how its all turned out and so thankful to Emily for giving me this amazing opportunity. If you’re ever in the Loughborough area do pop in and take a look and you MUST get your nails done whilst you’re there. I have been going to Browns for years for manicures and wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else!
