The Trove – Dinglehoppers & Whosits and Whatsits: The Little Mermaid ‘meets’ Mansfield

‘The Trove is my little sanctuary, Dinglehoppers salon, cruelty free, eco & vegan friendly, plus my workshop for Whosits & Whatsits handmade products.’

Jo’s garden sanctuary remains the perfect slice of paradise. The Little Mermaid meets Mansfield. I love it.

Jo has been hairdressing for 11 years this summer, but only recently ventured into her very own garden Trove, given how the recent lockdowns had changed how we work and operate. Jo had been working from home, making her products throughout lockdown, and felt it was the way forward for herself and her family. The salon is a  lovely set up in her garden, a spacious little trove for her hair appointments, and a place to sell whosits and whatsits galore. The Little Mermaid references do not stop with the name either, as Jo’s salon is decorated with a beach feel, with subtle nods to the Disney Classic and her red locks are a massive giveaway to the inspiration behind her small business. With my faded red hair, and plans to refresh the red, I felt like I fit in with the surroundings and overall vibe for sure.

Jo invited me up for a patch test beforehand, and then the magic was done on May 28th. I say magic because anybody tackling my bird’s nest of hair will know the patience and perseverance required to do wonders with my wild mane. She did a fantastic job, I will let the pictures illustrate how much of a good job she did. My hair needed some TLC, and The Trove delivered.

Jo has worked her magic!

I felt in safe hands and found Jo very easy to talk to, as we chatted about our lives, the local area and she told me more about how she had ended up with a garden salon. Some of what the Warsop-based hairdresser sells, are featured in the read more section below.

Jo’s business is unique and inventive, and affordable, accessible, and environmentally conscious. So many great reasons to support her service, by either visiting the salon or purchasing her products.
