Meet some of The Hair Gallery team

 

Meet Katie - Manager

I started with The Hair Gallery as a Graduate Stylist in the Bicester Salon, and I am now the Manager of our Brackley Salon.

In this role, I’m excited about growing and developing our reputation as one of the best Salons in our area.  I think it’s important for our team to continually be gaining experience, improving practical skills, and building relationships with clients.

We are good self motivators!  We read hair magazines, follow creative stylists on social media and try out new techniques so we can develop in the areas we are passionate about.

Personally, I am really enthusiastic about wedding hair.  I think it is a privilege to be involved in the build up to someone’s wedding and to make them feel beautiful for their special day.

Career progression in this industry takes commitment, practice and skill, and you need a supportive environment to grow.

At The Hair Gallery, Sam and Debbie encourage us to get involved in our own professional development, look for ways to improve, and ask for help where we need it.

This has given me the confidence to progress in my own career and, now, to support and develop the team too.

We stand out when we consistently hit our markers on customer service, and that’s obvious because clients come back to us.

I deal with customer feedback and feel such pride when I receive positive comments about any member of our team.  It is good for encouraging them, and we think it’s important to celebrate the team successes!

Meet Georgina Senior Creative Stylist

I started as an Apprentice here 10 years ago, straight from school – nervous about talking to people or answering the phone. 

Looking back now as a Senior Creative Stylist , I’ve changed a lot through working here.

We are encouraged to ask and learn, whatever our role, so my confidence and professional skills have really grown.

I love the technical aspect of my work, especially colour.

We have training from Schwarzkopf technicians on new products, and I find the hands on experience really helpful.

Clients look and feel transformed when they’ve had a colour change and it is great to have the knowledge to advise and style them.

Sam and Debbie are interested in finding out which areas of our career we want to develop, and how we want to achieve that.

For example, I have practical understanding of how a Salon is run but wanted to learn more about management so I’ve completed a Management and Team Leading course to help prepare me for the next stage in my career. I’m proud of the progress I’ve made.

In this job I have a varied client list, training opportunities and the ability to develop my career based on my interests.

My favourite part of the job is my relationships with my team, and getting to know clients and making them feel good about how they look!

Meet Michelle - Graduate Stylist

I started a hairdressing apprenticeship after school, but moved to a job with shorter hours so that I could look after my little one. Now she’s older I decided to come back to hairdressing. I worried that my age would put employers off.

I enrolled at college, but the teaching was not work based. I saw the apprenticeship vacancy here and sent in my CV, thinking nothing would come of it.  I was very happy when I was offered the place!

My apprenticeship was exactly what I wanted, hands on.

I was doing jobs in the Salon all day, sweeping up, making drinks for clients, blow drying hair.

I am very keen to learn, and I picked things up by seeing how they should be done – like the correct angles for washing or blow drying a client’s hair.

I qualified as a Graduate Stylist at the start of December 2017!

There is still lots to learn so when I have quiet periods in the Salon I practice techniques or ask others to teach me new skills.

I’ve also been on cutting and hair up courses, and one teaching hairdressers how to prepare models for photo shoots.

To anyone thinking about apprenticeship, I would say make sure you are prepared to put in the hard work and make the time for training.

Learning as you go is important but you’ll need to practice when you’re not on the Salon floor too.

Find a supportive team.  Here we help each other out each day and the senior team members are great role models for me.
