Meet Gill Grant and Steven Suckling
Gill says; ‘I’m quite a busy person so it’s a rare occasion that I get a few hours to sit and do nothing. Getting my hair done gives me that time for myself. I enjoy my appointments with Steven, he’s caring, warm, well travelled and very sociable. Our conversations tend to focus on travel ideas and holiday recommendations. In 2016 my aim was to visit a different country every month and I didn’t fail on that.’
‘A wise woman once said that your hair is the only accessory you wear every day. This couldn’t be more true as I think of my hair like I think of any item that I buy. It’s an investment that should go with everything else in my wardrobe. Hopefully(!) it should be complimented by people who see it. I went to Steven after a recommendation of a friend about 8 years ago. I’m pretty sure I’ve never had the same hair cut twice. If my sums are right Steven has given me 52 hair cuts that have always met my needs. His versatility translates across all ages too because he styles my mum’s hair as well.’
Steven says; ‘Gill has a strong sense of style and a fantastic head of hair which is great to cut. When Gill first became my client she had long hair, once we considered going short there was no looking back. She’s very adventurous with her hair, in fact I don’t think we’ve ever cut the same style twice.
We bonded over our love of adventure, both in travelling and style and I enjoy Gill’s witty sense of humour. She’s kind, smart and lives a fast paced life – I’ve styled her hair for corporate functions, family celebrations and of course for holidays! We’ve both progressed our careers and shared similar experiences in the last eight years and she’s been a good friend to me. It’s amazing the relationship that unfolds when a client sits in a salon chair, it’s one of the best bits of being a hairdresser.’
