Our story first began back in 2002 as a small retail shop named Potter & Moore. Fast forward 15 years, 4 retail stores, 1 wholesale outlet and a name change later, we are a go-to retail destination for all hair, beauty and fashion accessory needs. We are a "one stop shop" boutique!
Fortunately for us, our industry is evolving every day allowing us to grow and develop our extensive range of cosmetics, skin care ranges, hair products, styling tools, hair extensions, fascinators, jewellery, shoes, bags- well the list goes on ….
Stockists of brands like Ghd, Dermalogica, Schwarzkopf to name only a few, we strive to offer the highest quality & the most sought-after products at the most attractive prices.
In 2012 after a seemingly endless search to find a quality hair extension range, our own brand of hair extensions was born. We welcomed ‘Dream Goddess’ to our portfolio and added sister product ‘FairyTale’ ponytails a year later.
These additions gave us a renewed vision for our own brand and started us on the journey to our next adventure…
