New Aussie hair salon saves Middlesbrough's bad hair days

A sigh of relief was heard nationwide on Saturday, but nowhere more than Middlesbrough, as locals got a shiny new hair salon on their doorstep. Australian hair salon, Just Cuts, opened its doors in Hillstreet Shopping Centre, with a mission to put an end to bad hair days and refresh those lockdown locks. David Mathie, General Manager, was thrilled with how well the Grand Opening went.

“The people of Middlesbrough certainly didn’t disappoint. We had hygiene procedures and steps in place to ensure social distancing guidelines were being met, but that didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits. After three long months, customers were pleased to get back to some normality, and the whole team were thrilled to be the ones providing that first taste of freedom. I’m proud of the Stylists and how well the situation was handled.

“Our Grand Opening would’ve been a much bigger affair but, of course, this one had to be a little different. To manage customer levels and make it a comfortable environment for everyone, customers were encouraged to use our app. This allows them to check into a virtual queue and wait their turn, not only removing any unnecessary stress, but reducing the risk as they wait for their time in the chair. The safety of our customers is paramount.”

Opening day customers received an extra treat with a goody bag of miniature JUSTICE Professional products, Just Cuts’ exclusive haircare product range. As Super Saturday is behind them, the whole team is excited to make their mark in the local community.

“We’re looking forward to getting back into the routine of salon life. COVID-19 precautions will remain at the forefront of our minds but we aim to make the salon experience as pleasant as possible for our customers. Our salon with its Aussie vibe is just the breath of fresh hair that Middlesbrough needs right now,” added David.
