Hi, my name is Dylan and here is my journey so far. I have over 30 years experience in hairdressing. Starting as a stroppy 15 year old junior working my way up to an experienced hair salon owner in the North East. I love my job! The care and professionalism you’ll receive once in my chair you’ll leave with a smile from ear to ear 😆! Cutting and styling are my specialities but I am qualified and experienced in all aspects of the industry, colouring, colour corrections, balayages and barbering. However, I am always looking to educate myself with new trends to stay fresh! I believe this new opportunity with team at Avesta will allow me to achieve this. I’ve moved to Salford to be with my partner and I’m very excited with this new chapter of my life. Thanks for taking the time to read my bio and I look forward to you joining me and sharing this new journey and adventure!
Hi all reading this. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself and my work. For me, there was no eureka moment when I decided that the future of my career lay in the hands of hair. My decision was far more gradual! From playing hair salon with my friends in a younger age to working amongst some of the most talented stylists I have met, my love for hair and my dream of becoming an amazing hairdresser has never changed! I am obsessed with creating colours, hair ups and styling hair to suit the client’s image. My favourite part of hairdressing is colouring, everybody’s perception of colour is different and that is why I love creating colours with other stylists. My current favourite technique to do is a balayage as the blend and colours you can achieve are so fascinating and personalised. In my spare time I participate in Morris dancing which has given me great teamwork and social skills. I interpret these skills into my work and that is why I enjoy working at Avesta. I am an outgoing social person so you will not be bored sitting on my chair! My job does not feel like work, it feels like my passion and vocation! Thanks for reading.
Hello/Hi/Greetings! Thanks for taking the time to read my personal bio, I hope you enjoy the read. A little about me. I’ve been a hairdresser for over 30 years and I absolutely love my job! I started as an apprentice and worked my way up to being salon manager of large company, to having my own business. Now, I’m here at AVESTA embarking on a new chapter and I’m excited for what’s in store. I love the relationships that are built with my clients from the very first time that they walk through the door. Salons can be very daunting for some people and I will try my best to make you feel comfortable and at ease from the offset. I enjoy doing all aspects of hair from cutting to colouring to weaves and blow drying, for that extra occasion I do a fab curly blow-dry so that your hair is ready anytime time of the week! Colouring is an art that I particularly enjoy especially when doing highlights, balayage, toning, glossing etc. That’s when you can be creative and also create a bespoke look for my client. I also do hair weaves that can add length or thickness to your hair for when you just fancy a change! I’m always up for learning new techniques as its good to stay ahead and up to date in the industry. See you soon! Marion X
Hi my name is Gemma and I've been hairdressing for over 20 years. I started off my career in a busy local salon as a Saturday girl where I would shampoo client's hair and assist the stylists. As I finished school, I started my hairdressing career. Despite achieving all the qualifications in hair and beauty industry over the years, I always found myself back as a hairdresser. This is where I could be my creative self! I worked in high Street salons and then owned my own salon at a young age. Over the years, I have done many other training courses in salon which involved new styles, colour techniques/colours and products to keep updated with trends. I am qualified in all areas of hairdressing including colour correction, balayage, highlights and barbering. I am very creative and a little quirky so I really enjoy creative colouring, using brights, funky cuts and restyles. Out of all, I would say I love doing short/pixie hair styles especially if they are a little funky!! I enjoy barbering an I believe it has changed so much over the years, gents are now being a little more adventurous with their hair which makes this area an interesting part of our industry. I love seeing my client’s reactions when they see their new look, I believe it can boost their confidence so much and make them feel great about themselves! that is where I get great satisfaction!. I am a very outgoing person who loves to chat and laugh, I will always make your visit enjoyable and send you out with a smile!!
Hi everyone and thank you for reading my bio. I have always had a passion for hair. My hairdressing journey started by experimenting on my friends hair when I was a young girl. I then joined the Trafford Collage doing my full time level 2 hair and beauty and I enjoyed every minute of it. I have experienced working in high street salons and finally found the right one for me at Avesta. I enjoy working with long hair. Balayages and other colour techniques are my favourites as the allow me to use my talent and creative side. curls/ curlyblowdry and curly hair are my other specialities. I love doing a full transformation from start to finish and make people amazed and happy. I'm a positive, friendly and smiley person and love to talk about the most random thing. So take a sit on my chair and let me make your day more delightful.
Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I wanted to be a hairdresser from a very young age. My barbie dolls were my first clients and I literally did everything to their hair! I started working in a salon as a Saturday and evening girl when I was 14 years old and I absolutely loved it. I trained with Mr Andrew Collinge which was a great achievement for me as I grew up watching him on TV. My favourite part of my job is making my clients happy, listening to them and creating something bespoke and outstanding for them. I love chatting with my clients and making them feel comfortable and at ease because let’s face it, trying to find that perfect hairdresser for you can be pretty challenging but I’ll make sure you’re well looked after. I specialise in: long polished hair, I love hair that is smooth, sleek and shines like silk. classic hairstyles such as bobs are one of my favourites as they are timeless cuts. Whether it’s short or medium length bob, I can have this look created for you. I love the fact that this look never dates and it’s suitable for any age. So if you fancy a restyle, I am here for you. curly blows are my favourite blow drys they they are natural but classy and perfect for night outs. So if you need to Look amazing for your events and you are happy to have every brush I own in your hair to get that perfect look, then I’m your girl. Highlights again another classic and another favourite technique of mine. This look is perfect for people who want to be on the brighter side and don’t mind seeing me for a good old catch up and brew every 6-12 weeks. Balayage is one of my favourite colour techniques as it can be tailored to you to show your style and your identity. It can be made subtle and perfectly natural like the sun’s just lightened your hair slightly. Subtle balayages are perfect for low maintenance but still look amazing after six months. You can even go bright with balayage and have vivid colours. Balayages aren’t just for blonde hair and they can be copper, pink, peach etc. So if you want subtle or extreme, I love doing either and I’m happy to create. Thank you for taking the time to read about me I am looking forward to meeting you.
Hello to all of you lovely ladies and gentleman reading my personal bio. I Hope you all enjoy my little story. I started hairdressing nearly 20 years ago and I had my own salon at the age of 19. After developing my skills in each and every area of hair, beauty and barbering industry, I started working as an educator and an ambassador in market leading brands such as Loreal Paris. Eventually, I realised that my love for hairdressing is neither working in high street catwalks nor as an educator in hair seminars, it is the satisfaction of making my clients feeling amazing about themselves and leaving the salon with a smile on their faces. I am an all round hairdresser and it is very difficult to choose my favourites however here are a few: I get very excited on drastic colour changes and colour corrections. I love the challenge and technical services are my specialities. I love working with asian and middle eastern hair to create the hair goal which seems impossible to achieve. I also like to mix and match my colouring techniques to create your ultimate hair goals. I love working with naturally curly and Afro Caribbean hair as this is another one of my specialities. Having naturally curly hair myself, I understand the challenge of finding the right haircut and style for my clients. Don’t worry as I will pamper your beautiful curls and advise you on suitable products to style your hair at home. I love cutting and styling hair. I cut depending on the feel and texture of the hair and can create your desired hairstyle from short bobs to long layered look. I really enjoy barbering. As men’s hair services are not as versatile as ladies, this is a great opportunity for me to get creative. You will be amazed how minor changes can make major impacts on your looks. Hair extensions are one my favourites as I started doing them when they were first introduced to the industry. From classic weavs to micro and nano beads and tapes, I love adding to your hair whether you are looking for volume, length or both. I can always advise you on choosing the right colour and cut which suites your face shape, skin tone and your lifestyle to achieve the ultimate personalised look for you. It is a delight to see my clients walk out of the salon with a boost of confidence and say to themselves “god I look amazing today”. I cannot express my love and excitement for hair as I live breath and sleep it. Thank you for reading my bio and I hope to see you soon!
