Mix-d: Hair Product Review - by mixed.up.mama

Our first Stockist in London.

Our first Stockist in London.

Thank you to Charlie at Charlie’s Hair and Beauty - Shepard Bush. 

I recently visited London and spoke to over 13 potential shop owners. Over a 3 day period I travelled from Lewisham, to Stafford, to Peckham, Woolich, Shepard Bush and many locations in-between. 

My last stop before returning to Manchester was Charlie's, in Shepard Bush. They are a family owned business with a great  values. I liked them immediately and wanted them to be our first stockist in the south.

We made history!!

I like to build relationships which go far rather than fast. I hope this is the beginning of a long journey together. 

Cheers Charlie. 

Brad.

A mention in the voice!!

A proud week.

Our first mention in The Voice news paper.

Thank you to Juliette Bucknor for inviting me to exhibit at ‘Don’t touch my hair’. It was a great honour to share the room with other industry specialists and to learn about trading at our first event.

Inspite of the nerves and uncertainty, I was proud to have met lots of wonderful people, sold some products and got a space along side Juliette in The Voice article.

Thanks again Juliette for the opportunity and Abigail Reid for the photo article.

My beautiful dad would have been proud of me today!! If you believe in something; make it happen!!! Now available to buy www.mix-d.uk. Thank you for sharing this moment with me.
