Angela Gough – Founder & Owner
Tell us something about you? I am so happy to say that I have created a wonderful salon and a spa with an amazing team of happy professional people who are all devoted to offering excellent hairdressing and beauty services alongside excellent customer service. I still enjoy hairdressing and also really enjoy the business side of running the salon and spa. I strive to keep Pure at the top of the guests’ choice as the number one salon for hairdressing and beauty.
Favourite Aveda product? be curly™ family. Having extremely curly hair myself I understand the problems guests with curly hair have! After years of fighting the curls I decided a few years ago to embrace them. I use be curly™ shampoo, conditioner, style prep and curl enhancer; all of the products contain wheat protein which expands when wet and retracts when the hair is dry to lock in curl and eliminate frizz.
Favourite Salon/Spa service? Years spent on my feet has really taken its toll on my back! I love the Aveda Stress-Fix™ Massage. The aromas in the stress fix oils organic lavender, lavandin and clary sage are clinically proven to reduce feelings of stress, combined with deep tissue massage, foot reflexology and guided meditation, the benefits can be felt for weeks afterwards.

I am a trained trichologist and can give you advice on any hair/scalp concerns you may have and I have also gained extensive experience with hair botox.
Favourite Aveda product? The Aveda Cherry Almond hair collection. I think it smells gorgeous! It’s very hydrating without being heavy; light enough to penetrate without leaving a buildup. I find it works well on all hair types too.

James – Artistic Director
Tell us something about you? I began my career at Pure in 2018 and I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing, but my passion is in colour and for the most part crafting the perfect blonde. Creating dimension to flatter each individual guest and using the latest trends.
I love being creative with colour, especially producing a significant distinction from before to after. Enhancing your hair with high quality results, whether you want to brighten your hair with a balayage or looking to make a statement with a fashion colour. I strive to achieve presenting you the hair of your dreams and making you feel confident when you leave the salon in love with your new hair!
Favourite Aveda product? Aveda’s new Blonde Revival. I create a lot of blondes in the salon, and whether you’re a natural blonde or have highlights or a balayage, the new blonde revival shampoo and conditioner has been a game changer from Aveda. I highly recommend using the blonde revival range as it benefits guests in upkeeping their blondes between appointments from home, helping to refresh dull and brassy blondes to ashier and healthier hair. Also leaving the hair shiny and nourished and not dry or brittle like many purple shampoos can.

Favourite Aveda product? Nutriplenish leave -in conditioner is my favourite product as it’s great for all hair types and adds shine and nourishment to hair.. It’s also a heat protectant which makes it great for blow drying and it can also be used in combination with other Aveda products.
