About Off the Fringe

We are very excited to welcome you to indulge in an Off the Fringe experience in our beautiful new Organic Hair Studio.  We officially opened our doors on the 18th February 2013.

Megan and Bridgette worked closely together for six years, and it became evident that their need to expand, in respect of premises as well as the OCS brand was fast becoming a necessity.  In 2012 the ideal premises presented itself along with the opportunity to grow the salon, thereby affording them the opportunity to further expose the OCS range to a broader demographic.  Bridgette did not hesitate to sign a lease and get the ball rolling.  After months of hard work, contemplating the ideal setting for our clients, the vision became a reality.  We thank our loyal clients for your continued support and hope you will continue to come back for many years to come, this is all for you!!  We welcome you all to come in and see our home, we know you will be very happy here, we know we will!

We are looking forward to providing you with that special personal touch that you will come to love over the years.  To all our new and future clients, we look forward to getting to know each and every one of you and welcome you to join the Off the Fringe family.

How is Off the Fringe Different?

Off the Fringe sets itself apart from other hair salons by offering an in-depth consultation and hair styling service using certified Organic products manufactured by Herb UK.  “Herb UK Ltd has had one primary objective: to formulate and manufacture a range of high performance hair products, which are safer for hairdressers to use than traditional ammonia-based colours.  This is the guiding philosophy of the company.  Our products maximize the use of gentle, nourishing, natural ingredients, whilst minimizing the necessity for potentially harsh or damaging chemical additives”.  Visit our OCS Products page if you would like to read a little more on the OCS product range offered at Off the Fringe.

With ongoing training, Bridgette has become more passionate about the service and treatment given to clients using the OCS products.  No other salon offers the in depth consultation and hair analysis that comes with using the products.  After the initial consultation, clients are given the opportunity to visually see the improvement in their hair through treatments before any colour or other chemical service is performed.  This consultation gives the stylist the opportunity to recommend suitable products to use at home to maintain the integrity of the hair as well as the colour service.  We will offer a guarantee on the colour if the client uses the recommended home products only.

Every client is given a skin patch test 48 hours prior to any chemical service being performed.  This is to ensure there is no skin reaction after the service is performed.  After the initial skin patch test, clients are given a complementary six monthly patch test.

Our business atmosphere is a relaxing one where clients can be pampered and educated at the same time.
