Society Hair – is all about the experience

A new hairdressing experience has recently opened in Yamba.

April Carlin opened her new hairdressing business ‘Society Hair’ on October 28, in the old ANZ Bank location at Shop 3, 4 Yamba Street, Yamba.

“I moved from Sydney to Yamba nearly 9 years ago and decided to change my career from finance to hairdressing and fell in love with it,” April said.

“It’s always been a dream of mine to own a salon and I felt the timing was right. I felt ready, so I decided to do it.

“The name “Society” is derived from wanting people to feel (a sense of connection) like they belonged to something, if that makes sense. I wanted to create a bit of an “ah” moment when people walked in; a place where you could feel comfortable and relaxed – a little bit of luxury and glamour, in Yamba.

“We offer everything hair,  specialising in current trend colour and cuts, as well as wedding or event styling and of course a great experience.

“I’ve got a fantastic team working with me; Lorraine Allen and Rachael Hall are both fully qualified hairdressers with over 20 years experience in the industry.

My mum Vicky has been an integral part in the opening of the salon and is currently the voice of Society Hair and an expert ‘tea and tidy’ lady.

“Next year, we’re looking at offering some exciting packages such as girls nights out even hen’s parties. We’ll be focusing on education and keeping our skills up to date and fresh.

“So we’re looking forward to a few different things in the new year,” she said.

“Come in and check us out and have a chat. We can assist you with anything that you want to know about your hair or products.

Open Tuesday – Saturdays
