Hairdressing has been my passion from a very young age. My mum opened the salon with her then business partner (Moira Watson) when I was 13 years old and from then I knew I wanted to follow in my mum’s footsteps.
I trained at Central College of Commerce in Glasgow at the age of 17, I returned home to join my mum and staff in the business. I’ve now been in the salon for 39 years working alongside my mum. I’m now proud to say that my daughter, Louise, is fully qualified and works alongside me.
I love all aspects of the industry, but my strength/passion is cutting. I have attended many courses over the years, one of which I was proud to gain the level of distinction in advance cutting techniques in a 3-day course. As with all courses we attend as a salon, I love the bond you make with fellow stylists in the industry.
Continual training is at the forefront of our salon education. We strive to keep up-to-date with current trends through training with our L’Oréal Professional Education Team and our GHD Premier Partner Education Team.
Our hard work paid off when we reached the Scottish Regional Finals of the prestigious L’Oréal Colour Trophy three times in a row.
In early 2020 we entered the Scottish Wedding Awards and we were named Scottish Regional Winners. I’m very proud of our team and we hope to go from strength to strength in the future.
