Adam and Potsie: The Cutting Edge

Adam and Potsie: The Cutting Edge

Adam and Potsie

Whatever the style, colour or cut, Adam and Potsie provide first-class professional hair care with a delightful personal touch

The first thing that strikes you about Adam and Potsie’s bright hairdressing salon in Ravenscourt Park is a picture gallery of hundreds of beaming faces. ‘Our business is all about making people feel positive, so it seemed an excellent idea,’ explains Adam.

‘We’ve been putting up photos of happy customers since February and now there must be almost 500 on the wall. We’ve found that the gallery helps to make new clients feel at home and it’s become an attraction in itself.’

Adam and Potsie are familiar, well respected faces on the local hairdressing scene. For 15 years they ran the Essensuals/Toni&Guy salon in Hammersmith, building a 20-strong team and attracting a loyal following. When that venture came to an end, and after a spell at Toni&Guy in Chiswick, Adam decided it was time to launch their own salon. ‘We had lots of clients in Chiswick and Hammersmith, so this location is perfect.’

Unsurprisingly, with so much experience, the couple has a clearly defined business philosophy. While they offer all the technical skills of a major salon – Potsie is a superb colour technician and Adam is the master of cutting and blow-drying – what matters most is what Potsie calls ‘a genuinely friendly service.’

‘In some salons, it can seem like you’re on a relentless conveyor belt,’ she says. ‘That’s not us. We take time to chat and get to know our customers; we listen to what they want, we like to introduce them to one another and we provide tea, coffee, wine or Prosecco. It’s like joining a family.’

‘We like people to come to us, relax and be confident that they’ll be completely satisfied with the results,’ adds Adam. ‘We can bring every style and colour to life and handle everything from cuts and re-styles to wedding and party hair. We deliver consistently high quality – and leave clients with a smile on their faces.’
