I have been a hair dresser for almost 35 years.
My first job was at a Manchester salon which was a great learning experience. I then started work here at Elegance Hair Design, Gatley. Then it was called Stephen James. Four years later I took over the salon and I have never looked back.
Some of the reasons why I love hairdressing:-
It gives me the chance to be creative. Even though many people come to the hairdressers with an idea of what they want, their chosen style or hair colour may not fit their face shape. My experience allows me to give them some alternative ideas.
I get to meet new people and also keep in touch with clients I have had for many years. I really enjoy a good chat, finding out what is going on locally.
I love the village atmosphere. I consider my clients as friends as well, people are always popping in for a chat when passing by.
It's hard work sometimes being on your feet all day - but I would not change it for the world!
Hope to see you soon
