Ragamuffins – for me it’s not just a hair appointment, it’s a very personal experience with sophisticated hair colouring and complete after care.
Since moving with my family to Devon in 1999, I have been a client at Ragamuffins and Nikki Farrant has been my Hair Stylist. I used to live about 15 minutes away from the salon, 10 years ago we moved but the hour-long journey is always worth it.
Before we moved I had had my hair coloured in various salons for 13 years using Goldwell, Wella and L’Oréal products. What I was looking for in a new Salon was a lasting relationship with a professional and experienced Stylist – one who didn’t ask what I was doing that evening 🙄
Having a young family, I was hoping to find a good Salon that wasn’t miles away from Exeter. Luckily, I came across Ragamuffins in Yellow Pages back then as Google, let alone the Internet, didn’t exist!
It was in a great location with easy parking but I wasn’t sure about the “Organic Colour” as it was quite a new thing then and I thought it might be quite an alternative, hippy thing which wasn’t me. Still I was interested in this new type of colouring and decided to ring nevertheless. Ragamuffins was the first and ONLY salon I ever called and since then I have always had fabulously coloured hair.
When I chatted to Nikki Farrant all those years ago, she completely explained about Organic Colour and how it differed from Chemical Colour. Her professionalism and passion are as fresh today as it was then when she spoke to me on the phone. From that moment, I knew I would be in very safe hands.
Each of my appointments have always been first and foremost about the health of my hair. Prior to colouring, the condition of my hair is purposely checked to determine which hair treatments are appropriate before the colouring process. Hair treatments are done in the salon and can be continued at home to maintain great hair condition.
Nikki works hard to build a relationship with you so that she always knows how you are feeling about your hair colour and condition. At every appointment, she discusses all the appropriate options before tailoring how she colours your hair. It is amazing to have a Hair Stylist who actually listens!
Now that I am mainly grey, I have an all over colour with tons of foils in different tones which gives a beautiful natural look. It may be a long appointment each time but it is enjoyable and without doubt worth it. I have had so many compliments over the years which is lovely.
Nikki’s expertise, attention to detail and genuine caring attitude are second to none. The Ragamuffins team around her are equally passionate and knowledgeable and work well together to create a relaxed and happy salon.
Once you have been, you will want to come back.
