Curious Hair Studio
79 Devonport road
Plymouth PL3 4DF Devon
I opened Curious Hair Studio in the quaint historic Stoke,village in Plymouth in February 2020 completely unaware that 3 weeks later the uk would go into a strict national lockdown. I knew I could not sit and wait around for the time to pass. I contacted vulnerable clients to offer to collect essential items, shopping, and boost their mood by delivering our amazing product.
Having a great response from my clientele I then wanted to offer more help. I got in contact with the local neighbourhood care network and volunteered by collecting prescriptions and essential items for locals in the area.
Standing at the doorstep and having a general chat to help combat loneliness and isolation.
We then started to receive donations from FareShare and weekly I would go to the warehouse and collect a van full of free food to be able to make food packages for people struggling to make ends meet in these unfamiliar times. It was a humbling experience seeing people in need, but it gave me purpose.
Curious hair studio is dedicated to sustainability, freedom and style but now I feel community is so, so important and knowing I was able to help those in the studios location has made a huge difference to how the pandemic affected me mentally.
Volunteering from March 2020 until we were able to reopen in July 2020. And then again with the 2nd and 3rd uk lockdown- nov 2020 and jan2021-April 2021. I still offer my help to the NCN and love that we now have a great community feel, chatting to locals as they pass and always giving a friendly smile.
