We take training and qualifications very seriously. All our Juniors are on apprentice programmes, training in the salon and at college, working towards NVQ level 3.

Alongside this, our stylists constantly update their skills gaining extra qualifications and accreditations to keep up with product changes, new trends and updates in the industry – for their own personal development and to ensure that our customers get the very best treatment possible.
