have wearable, workable wardrobes which are on-trend without being 'trendy'. What I relish is the opportunity to create individual looks for them and give them the tools to continue to grow their own sense of style long after I have left them. The biggest compliment and the most frequent feedback I receive from clients is that I have given them confidence. How awesome is that."I love educating my clients about fashion then teaching them about style. My job is a balancing act on the tightrope between fashion and style.www.networkshe.com57How to make your wardrobe work for youIncrease your wardrobe wearability. You will be surprised how many outfits you can create out of what you already own. Tops especially can be worn two or three ways you just need to use accessories such as belts and tights to create different looks. Invest in a simple shift dress - this can be layered up or down, is great when you are feeling bloated and will work in summer and winter. Plus it is a great item for day-to-night dressing. Make your wardrobe manageable. Separate your key work wardrobe items from your casual and event clothes. Instead of dealing with your whole wardrobe you are dealing with a small section so it's more manageable. Some items are great dual purpose items (a suit jacket can be worn with jeans and flats for a great weekend outfit) but keeping certain items separate will make it easier to spot gaps. Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise. Loop necklaces, bracelets and scarves over the hanger and save yourself some much needed time in the morning. Break glass in case of emergency. Have another option. Mine is my little black dress which I can wear umpteen ways. You always need a back-up in case you spill coffee down your front, get deodorant down your side, or find a rip down your back. Fashion comes in all shapes and sizes. Remove size cubes from hangers: don't worry about what size retailers think you are.
58Network She I Autumn/Winter 2012Mark and I met when we worked together in a salon in Rhyl called Hairmates. I'd qualified in hairdressing and beauty therapy and was doing a bit of both in the salon and Mark had come straight from school as a junior. After five years we moved to another salon working as self employed stylists and married a short time later. Now was the time to go it alone and open our own Salon The End. With furniture from IKEA and a homemade wooden reception desk made by Dad and one junior we made a go of it. Five years later and now with six staff we moved to a larger two storey premises gaining an additional four stylists. It was following a recent house move and a walk in the village that we noticed the old post office and newsagents was up for sale. That was it, we completed our third and final move in 2002 and haven't looked back.Most of our juniors continue their career progression with us staying on after qualifying and we now have a team of 22 and I think it is our staff retention that makes The End different. Clients get used to seeing the same faces which makes them feel confident and relaxed. We are really like a big happy family most of the time anywayTHE END?...Hairdressers Mark and Jan Jones hold the secret of over 21 years of success in marriage and businessThe team celebrate 21 years in businessPictures courtesy of Cat of Catchin Smiles Photography.
