Bobble is located on the super stylish Clayton Road and boasts the likes of Jesmond Beauty Clinic, Terry de Havilland and Williamson Brown Jewellers among its new neighbours.
Formerly Salon @ 56 (a nod to its old address – 56 Jesmond Road), the salon’s relocation has also coincided with a complete re-brand for the business. I love its funky new name and eye-catching logo, which you can’t miss on the wall outside its entrance.
Stepping inside, customers are greeted by exposed bricks, stripped wood and large mirrors, complemented by comfy hair washing chairs.
When I visited, the salon was awaiting their new styling chairs, which are coming direct from Italy, no less. I can’t wait to see what these will look (and feel) like!
Price-wise you can expect to pay £35 for a cut by a Senior Stylist, with a full head of highlights coming in at £56. A blow dry costs £18 and £21 for short and long hair respectively. The salon also has a loyalty card – if you visit seven times within a 12 month period, your eighth visit is free.
With regards to the hair care ranges on offer, Bobble stocks Joico and milk_shake. I’ve been using Joico products for the past few months and its shampoo and conditioner is great for cleansing your hair and removing product build up. Meanwhile, the milk_shake treatment range includes a delicious range of masks and hair cocktails featuring ingredients like cocoa and yoghurt (it’s a real shame they’re inedible!).
Bobble can be found at The Coach House, 1A Clayton Road, Jesmond. To book an appointment call 0191 281 0648 or follow its Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.
