As we approach the first anniversary of our official salon launch party, what better time to reflect on the rollercoaster ride that was 2020. If I'm honest, it's been no walk in the park; having to close our doors for more months than we've been open has definitely had its challenges! But we've loved being able to see your gorgeous (masked) faces in the salon whenever we could, and are looking forward to the day we can see you once again.

In any normal year, January can feel bleak as the festive cheer fades away, so this year perhaps more than any other I wanted to take time to take the time to really see all the things in my life that empower, enliven and enrich me. There is so much to be grateful for.

I am so happy to say that my family is safe and well, and I wish the same for all of you and your families. The salon brings me so much joy - all the more so for seeing all of your beautiful faces there again soon. That we can connect so easily with text and video to send on funny videos to make each other laugh, or a simple "hello" to show we're thinking of each other even when we can't see each other.

With the love and support of my family, friends and my delicious clients I know we are all going to have a fabulous 2021.

Love Gustav.
