Christos obituary

Christos Periclis
10th November 1935 – 20th May 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Christos who passed peacefully away on 20th May after battling Dementia followed by a short illness. Christos came to the UK in 1954 from his native Cyprus. He had just £10 in his pocket and a small suitcase which contained a few clothes and his hairdressing kit. He started work on the Cruise ships sailing out of London at the time as a hairdresser, and travelled the world providing hairdressing services to the cruise ship passengers. He met Margaret at the Hammersmith Palais, and they married in 1963.

Christos had saved every penny of his pay and had ambition. In 1968 he and Margaret moved to the new town of Milton Keynes where he opened his first salon in Wolverton. He worked tirelessly to build a successful business and expanded to Newport Pagnell. For over 50 years the business started from such humble origins has been providing attentive and professional hairdressing services to the people of Milton Keynes.

Christos opened Hair & Beauty salons in Wolverton/Stony Stratford And Newport Pagnell. He was particularly proud of the patient haircare work that looked after the cancer patients & teenage children with hair loss. His loved his family, wife Margaret, Mark Alison and his grandchildren Jo, Alex & Louise. He loved his work and all of his clients.

Christos’s funeral which takes place at Crownhill Crematorium at 2pm on Tuesday 4th June. All who knew him are very welcome to attend and following at the Swan Revived Hotel Newport Pagnell.

An Exciting New Salon – Especially For You

Featured

We are one week into our salon refurbishment and are excited to see the work underway as we create a wonderful new salon especially for you.

It is still business as usual and we have a temporary entrance via Union Street, just follow the signs and you will soon be greeted by our popup barber shop.

The great news is that the air con is working, the tea (or something cooler in this weather) is flowing and all our stylists are on hand to get you looking fabulous this summer.

Key highlights for the works include;

          Barbering services are business as usual with appointments and drop ins available with Steph, Cad and Mark. Don’t forget we have late night opening on Thursday too.

          All colour, cutting and speciality services remain the same and we have some availability throughout July and August to get you ready for your holidays.

          We have some availability for prom and festival hair but spaces are booking up fast so please get in touch.

          Patient Hair Care is open as usual and we have added two additional late nights on Monday and Tuesday for all clients that are experiencing hair loss or hair thinning.

This refurbishment is the result of the feedback from our clients and team and will incorporate many of the ideas that they have shared. We would like to reassure you that the renovation costs will be funded by Christos and you will not see any price increases to our services as a result of the refurbishment.

Thank you all for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you in the salon soon.

Texture

beach-waves

 

Finally we can go into summer with these amazing new Moroccan oil texture products. Designed to help create volume, beach waves and root support.

We have been trialing out these products in the salon this week and we’re liking what we see 🙂

Firstly, we have been using the Texture Clay, its moldable ability defines and sculptures the hair to create a strong hold and matte finish. Great for the men but also for the ladies we have found a small amount on dry wavy/curled hair can roughen up the hair and make it look more casual. Ingredients include, shea butter, argan oil and bentonite clay.

Secondly, we have the Beach Wave Mousse, for long lasting beach hair at anytime of the year. It is designed to provide tousled texture while keeping the hair hydrated at the same time. We have found that the mousse needs a really good shake before using as the oil is in twined with the mousse so can come out a bit runny. For best results air-dry or diffuse hair.

Thirdly, the Dry Texture Spray is infused with argan oil it helps create effortless undone styles but with a long lasting hold. We have found that spraying it in at the roots (not too close to the scalp) can help build a foundation and a bit of grit for backcombing or hair up, if you struggle to get volume in your hair this spray will help achieve it.

Available In Store Today! Olaplex

Olaplex this is a brand new innovation which has just in from the U.S.A, with only 10 salons in the UK, north of London we are the only store who sells this amazing product.

We had carried out nearly 40 treatments within the first week of receiving Olaplex in store, and the results we have seen in our customers previously damaged hair are just amazing!

In the Christos Salon during usage we have witnessed that Olaplex strengthens hair which has been weakend by the constant colouring, bleaching, highlights, and chemical straightening services which we tend to use today. It has provided our customers with amazing results!

During use it rebuilds the broken down bonds in hair that has been damaged, leaving the hair in a virgin state, used alongside Keratin treatments and as an addition to styling ranges like Morroccanoil, it is a fantastic, reasonably priced salon service, £15.00 per application.

In the Christos Salon we are also using the Olaplex on hair that has been growing back from Chemotherapy, as the protein bonds in new hair growth have also been disrupted we recommend the patient being post Chemo treatments for at least 6 months. Put simply it makes fragile hair Stronger, healthier, and helps stop coloured hair fading. Olaplex is not tested on animals, and is free from silicone’s, oils, aldehydes and parabens.

Tina: “I have used Olaplex just after bleaching hair, to re strengthen the individual hair shafts, we have used it on full head colours like ombre, and balayage, and it works as a stand alone service, on the fabulous new Wella Instamatic pastel colours.”

Find out why you would want to use OlaPlex:

 

We do require a consultation first and a colour skin test 48 hrs prior to any new color service.
