Deddington care home residents enjoy a cut and blow dry from their hairdresser in Featherton House's new-look salon.

Deddington Care Home Greets Hairdresser With Style

Deddington care home Featherton House has welcomed back its residents’ regular hairdresser with a new-look salon.

The news of the easing of restrictions around hairdressers was well received by the Featherton House residents, who dearly missed their hairdresser Dawn. The care home near Banbury is proud to have its own in-house hair salon which was given its own makeover at the end of 2020. With a light and modern new look, the Featherton House salon has been awaiting the return of the professional.

Dawn has since been welcomed into the newly renovated salon with much jubilation, ready to transform our residents’ lockdown hairdos and keep them looking their best.

In line with current government guidance, hairdressers are now allowed to visit care homes following a dynamic risk assessment. With strict infection control procedures in place for the visiting professional, including a negative LFD Covid test, residents can enjoy the pampering they have missed.

Residents were still able to visit the home’s salon during lockdown, with kind members of the Featherton House care team offering to keep their hair in tip-top condition. However, it certainly didn’t beat Dawn’s professional experience!

Much Appreciated Pampering

Resident Jean Waddup said: “It’s lovely to have our hair done again. Especially when you have short hair it’s nice to keep on top of it, keep it looking lovely.”

Another resident of the Deddington care home, Heather Starling, commented: “It’s just wonderful, it makes me feel like a new woman!”

Resident Jane Kellet, who is a keen visitor to the Featherton House hair salon, said: “I used to have my hair done every two weeks. So to have our fabulous hairdresser Dawn back is great. I don’t feel myself without my perm done and my hair in place!”
