" I love to make people happy and being a hairdresser for so long I have enjoyed every bit of it. Hairdressing has been such fun over the years and I've been lucky enough to travel around the UK. Progressing to the art of hair extensions has and is fantastic. I make people feel strong, confident or just in fact delighted. I also enjoy the balance from not only buying hair but donating my time cutting hair and sending off to the Little Princess Trust to help make free wigs for children who have cancer.
I started my first job at Charlies, a very popular salon in Frome on the bridge, which closed in the early 1990s. I then worked in a Salon in Bath on Saturdays while finishing Hair & Beauty training at College. I landed my first job as a full-time hairstylist with Joseph Harling, previously known as Headmasters, which is also based Frome.
Joseph Harling was a perfect place to continue my training. It was this training that shaped me into becoming a true professional in my work at all times. After learning the importance of a '5 step consultation'' this training really helped me understand the benefits of sitting down with my clients and asking as many questions as possible about there wishes, wants, desires and needs....highlighting any problems before they arise. This, in turn, would stay with me as a hairdresser and show my clients that they come first!...this is about them and not me. Of course, I am here if they would like my guidance as we both strive for a perfect end result. Acquiring valuable knowledge in competition work, shows, seminars there, I then left to have my first baby and while binging her up on my own I started my first mobile hairdressing business Elite hair by Elle ( with baby in tow). After 10yrs of a successful business, I fell pregnant again and sold my business and moved to Staffordshire for a short period of time. Circumstances changed and because of missing the South West so much, I moved back! I then continued to bring both daughters up on my own and started my next business, Popellas-hair in 2013.
I started from scratch and found it a lot harder to gain new clients, with the market flooded with `can do cheaply` hairdressing. While gaining clients I qualified with mimmiks Face & Bodypainting.
It was only after having a terrible hair cut from an unknown hairdresser, I decided to get hair extensions...
and was smitten!
I enjoyed them so much I decided to seek training from the best. Great lengths trained me to become a certified Great lengths hair extension technician, there was no turning back. I now focus on making other people as happy as I am with my own hair extensions...shhhhh nobody would ever know that I am wearing them!
My originally fine hair is left undamaged and my new hair is much nicer than my original hair...result. I've been lucky enough to work on a music video and add extensions to my client which rocked her look at Studio No1 London as was even asked to come back ....however family comes first for now.
Just had my hair done by Popellas hair and I am so pleased, my hair looks ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! Michelle has been doing my hair for over a year now and it has never looked so good. A top-class professional service, worth every penny! At the consultation, Elle will give you a personal quotation ensuring that you are happy every step of the way. Elle specialises in hair extensions and only uses the best quality hair. She can be relied upon to choose the right colour match for you, suitable length and size bond. During the extension fitting, Elle is keen for you to enjoy the experience. She is always delightful company with a warm and hilarious sense of humor making you feel at ease. - Thank-you Popellas Hair, a very, very happy customer!!!!!

A new hairdresser gave me the most awful hair cut, really really short and I was devastated. Elle has perfectly colour matched and added extensions to totally transform it! I could not be happier. Supper subtle and looks amazing. Woohoo
Michelle did an amazing job of taking my weave extensions out. Amazing service would definitely recommend and will certainly be returning.
Absolutely in love with my hair extensions! Cant recommend popellas- hair enough! Felt really comfortable as Elle is really lovely and
Fantastic service really helped out at short notice. Outstanding, would highly recommend
