Nick has been Rachael’s hairdresser for 30 years
THEY say a woman will never leave her hairdresser once she finds the perfect stylist - and that is certainly the case for resident Rachael Davies who has followed hers from Loughborough to London and back for more than 30 years!
Rachael celebrated a significant birthday recently and was delighted when salon owner Nick Tedd agreed to style her hair.
Nick owns and runs three Bliss Hair Salons in Loughborough and Nottingham so rarely cuts hair these days, but was proud to bring out the scissors once more for Rachael.
He said: “I started doing Rachael’s hair in 1985 and she still comes to Bliss Hair today. Over the years, she has followed me to every salon I’ve ever worked in or owned, even making the journey from Loughborough to London’s West End for her hair appointment. It was my pleasure to treat her to a cut and blow dry.”
The two first met 32 years ago when Nick was a newly qualified graduate stylist at Fydella in Loughborough.
Three years later and Nick moved to London where he worked in a central London salon.
Nick said: “It was a huge contrast to Loughborough but, because I used to do all the art students hair from Loughborough University, I had an edge. I soon gained a big clientele and worked with celebrities, models and international clients.”
Among Nick’s regular clientele was Rachael who was a frequent visitor to London.
She said: “I have wavy hair and wanted it to look better but couldn’t find a hairdresser who could do it as I wanted. A friend told me about Nick and he just ‘got it’.
“He worked his magic on my hair and I’ve been visiting him and his team ever since!”
