TUNES & GROOVES

It’s all abcx-bj_mxgaarvgdout the music…

 

Last week we  launched the new Simon Webster Hair client-interactive music system in collaboration with PRS for Music and the party was a big one!

 

We were thrilled to announce earlier in the year that we had won a music makeover for the salon, courtesy of PRS for Music, in recognition of our work with musicians and artists as well as our passion for creativity and ideas about the importance of music in a working and social environment.

The prize was £5000 to spend on an integrated music system that would improve our clients’ experience of the music we play in-salon. For months we’ve been working with Radio 6’s Steve Levine and PRS to design a music system with improved sound quality and that encourages our clients to engage with the music they’re listening to; picking out tracks, adding to playlists and set the tone for their visit. Now, each of the salon floors has it’s own independent music network, accessed via an i-pad. A new vinyl deck allows for favourite 45s and LPs to be played through the system, complete with atmospheric crackle, and we’ll be planning some special events with clients bringing along their old favourite 45s to play whilst being pampered.

 

The launch party was a fabul15230700_10154783378916803_7358882468724815907_nous evening celebrating the products of local businesses (Hell’s Kitchen and Bison Beer supplying a wicked selection of refreshments), local creatives (Toy Pincher and Cassette Lord showcasing theirskills), local musicians (Lakuta and DJ Ovre set the beat for the after party) and independents all over Brighton (Merlin & Ellis and Bend, Fit, Mend was super fab to have you with us). Massive thanks to all involved.

Already the new system has made a great difference by defining the floors of the salon as separate zones with their won feel and buzz. Clients and staff alike love it and we’re taking lots of requests! So come in, try it out and be your own DJ for your appointment!
