Inspired by their daughter’s five year remission following Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, owners of Poole-based salon chain Synergy Hairdressing, Colina and Steve Currell, are celebrating the success of ‘Mondays at Synergy’ since it was originally introduced last summer.
On the first Monday of every month, the Synergy team opens its doors to provide cancer sufferers with customised haircuts and head shaves, gentle blow-dries, wig washes, reiki therapy, hair and scalp masques. Make-up and nail services were also provided by Athena Beauty, all completely free of charge.
Synergy Hairdressing has been touched by the strength and courage of those who have shared their personal battle against a disease which has affected many friends, family and clients. Owner, Colina Currell, has been particularly drawn to 22 year-old Natasha Coleman from Bournemouth, who first visited the salon in April for styling of her recently grown back hair.
Coincidently like Colina’s own daughter, who is also called Natasha, she finished having treatment for Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in November and is now in remission following major spinal surgery. Natasha also originates from Durban in South Africa where Colina first trained as a hairdresser.
Colina explains: “We have had a lot of very strong beautiful women of all ages walk through our doors since we decided to offer complimentary treatments. I hope we can continue to offer love, touch and understanding to anyone who needs a quiet personal space, whilst receiving a little TLC via hair and nail treatments. What also makes this time special is seeing new friendships develop amongst the ladies who have been coming to us regularly. ‘’
‘Mondays at Synergy’ launched on Monday August 4 2014; the service will be offered to clients on the first Monday of every month between 10am-1pm. Synergy always welcomes new faces to turn up and enjoy their services.
