Welcome to our website for Poppy's parlour and Topknots 2 Tails, myself and my fiancee Frankie have such a love for animals that we decided to open our own grooming Parlour in Jan 2016 and we have had the chance to meet all your beautiful pets. And now we have two Parlours!! More pooches, more pampers and more cuddles xx

Let me introduce myself my name is Ky Marie, myself and my fiancée Frankie have over 10 years in the trade between us and we are both fully qualified. We also are qualified with canine behaviour training, pet sitting and dog walking.

We our selves were the proud owners of a beautiful standard poodle called Poppy who was 14 years old and was a rescue, she was dumped in a grooming parlour and was not wanted back, so my partner took her home and nursed her back to health and she was just stunning. In April 2017 we lost our beautiful girl but her memory lives on in her shop.

Here at Poppy's Parlour we may be small even with our bigger premises but our love for animals is big and it shows in our work so why not give us a try our prices are competitive and our work is of the highest standard. We love what we do and we will always do our best for all your pooches.

Our team is amazing and we love how passionate they are xx

Emma started with us in Oct 2016 so she has been with us the longest.... she absolutely adores all dogs but does have a passion for poodles!! She is level 2 qualified and working towards her level 3. She is our supervisor and keeps Poppys running so well.

Tiger joined us in Feb 2017 as a school work experience girl and well she never left. Tiger has owned cats and dogs for most of her life and has also got a knack for dog showing and cat grooming.

Aimee is our newest apprentice, she started as a school work experience girl in Feb 2018 and has since then started her level 2 qualification.

Sammi is a level 2 groomer who has been volunteering with us for over a year and is now a fully pledged member of poppys. She is also the other pick up driver.

And we are one of the only parlours to even have a super friendly receptionist!! May 2017 we welcomed Kim to our team and she is super efficient and waiting for your call. She also steals all the pooches for cuddles and kisses.

 And remember we are the ONLY award winning Parlour in the Clacton area and speciliase in nervous aggressive dogs, nervous dogs and dogs that are not keen on the grooming experience.


And now we will be spreading our knowledge and grooming to the Harwich and Dovercourt area from April 2nd on 256 High street Harwich co12 3pa.

 And Kim and Aimee are joining me up at Topknots as we build the team 

We are open Tuesday to Saturdays each week from 9.30 till 5. Pop over to our Topknots page to see our new fully equipped parlour xx

 We have been open for a year and are just so overwhelmed by the support and response we have received we love all our new clients and have reached over 400 already xx

 Also Ky is now a CAPG alongside the ICMG training network and a member of IPG. She is able to offer training courses which will be come more detailed as she works towards her master groomer qualification. 

Thank you to all our clients new and regular xx

Kind regards

Ky and Frankie
