Nick has been Rachael’s hair­dresser for 30 years

Loughborough Echo - - NEWS -

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!”
