2017 has been a very exciting year for the team at CrownCouture. We welcome positive change, new beginnings and new ideas; and we would like to keep you updated on what’s new and current at 6-8 Bread Street.

Hair extension innovation and business development

Our Hair extension master Nikki is working on various exciting new projects for the CrownCouture team. She has been the driving force of the business to date and her dream of becoming one of the UK’s top hair extension suppliers has finally become reality. Her dream doesn’t end there. Nikki’s imagination never stops. She is in the midst of designing and innovating a new original hair enhancement system. Watch this space….for now, she is keeping her ideas firmly under wraps!

Salon service

Weave diva Claire, who has been with us for nearly two years, has been training hard to perfect her hair extension application techniques. Although Claire joined us as our weave specialist, with Nikki’s support and guidance, Claire has also been beavering away to perfect her INVISILOCKS technique. Due to high demand, and client waiting lists, Claire will be assisting Nikki with fitting INVISILOCKS in the salon from mid-No

Trade take off

Office-genie come lash queen, Lorraine, is spreading her wings. From mid-November, Lorraine will be in and out of the salon and office, focusing on trade sales. CrownCouture has made headway in the hair extension market over the last three years; with CrownCouture sourcing, distributing and retailing hair extensions and hair pieces globally. Having secured a large number of trade accounts (salons and independent hair technicians purchasing and using our products) up and down the country, Lorraine now aims to focus on our trade client base.  I bet you thought she was just sitting in her office pretending to do some work!

As such, she will only be offering an eyelash extension service on a Saturday. If you would like to book in for festive lashes, to save disappointment, please call 0131 229 2128. A deposit is required at the time of booking.
