Red Lion Street Selfie Wall

Introducing our new Selfie Wall at the Red Lion Street salon in Norwich.

Instead of trying to find a suitable un-windy backdrop to snap your new hair photo on your walk home from the salon, you can now take your picture on our selfie wall, capturing that actual exact moment when your hair looks totally salon-fresh perfect.

The handsome young man is Louis (one of our trainee hairdressers), who recently received his NVQ2, modelling his new hair cut.

New Norwich Trainees

Welcome to our new Norwich trainees: Ellie, Callum, Jade, Chloe, Faith and Bethany.  Good luck to them all as they start their training with the JO Academy and Norwich salons.
