  1. Tammy Neillings – L’Oréal Colour Trophy Semi-Finalist

    Leave a Comment


    Tammy Neillings is semi finalist at the L’Oréal Colour Trophy and has been hairdressing for 8 years. Salon Manager at our Ocean Terminal salon she is one of our six Colour Specialists. She always likes to have something new and creative to focus on and after competing in the L’Oréal Colour Trophy last year and getting a taste for the competition Tammy just knew she had to compete again this year. This time round she has decided to set herself a challenge and has entered the Men’s Image Award.

    After extensive research into current fashion trends Tammy decided that she wanted to create an image rather than a look. She wanted the hair to describe a personality and a lifestyle and has chosen  her male model to complement this. Think “young American”.

    After entering earlier this year and reaching the semi-finals Tammy’s team at Ocean Terminal has been well and truly inspired. The younger team in particular have been involved in mixing colour formulas. They are looking forward to see the final look at the semi-finals. Especially because they can say that they were part of the process. The team knows that one day, with the right support, they too can compete.


    Tammy is currently spending her nights handpicking potential outfits that her model will wear at the semi-finals. She has confessed that the Awards are all she can think about at the moment. “I’ve been dreaming about the clothes, it’s so exciting to be using a male model because the thinking and styling is totally different. Looking at it from a guy’s point of view we’re selling a totally different image which is an exciting change for me’.

    After the Awards are all said and done Tammy is looking forward to a holiday to celebrate all her hard work before going back to the drawing board and deciding what will be her next focus!

    In a bid to reach the Grand Finals of the 2018 L’Oréal Colour Trophy in London in June, Tammy is competing in the semi-finals of this prestigious event at the SEC in Glasgow on April 18th alongside 2 other Charlie Miller Colourists, Rosslyn Orr and Leigh Forrest.

    We wish them all the very best of luck!

  2. Shining a spotlight on our Apprentices for #ScotAppWeek17

    Leave a Comment

    Scottish Apprenticeship Week ends today 10th March 2017 and we want to shine the spotlight on our wonderful trainees as we highlight some of their reasons for choosing their apprenticeship journey. We asked a few of them what 3 words best describe the experience of being a Trainee Stylist and why someone should choose hairdressing as a career and here’s what they said:

    In business for over 50 years literally hundreds of young apprentices have started their careers with us, sharpening their scissors and mastering their craft en route to a rewarding career. There are many attractive benefits a hairdressing career can bring: expert training in the craft and in personal growth; ongoing developments to keep a young person inspired and ahead of the game, competing in awards, climbing the ladder to manage a salon or join the Creative Team, plus a consistent and competitive salary.

    Variety is guaranteed as each client has their own story and every day a hairdresser has the opportunity to make their client feel and look fabulous. From welcoming clients to the salon for their ‘first day at school’ haircut to the potential of travelling the world for fashion shoots or catwalk and professional hair shows. Relationships are at the heart of everything we do and investing in the professional and personal growth our young apprentices is a commitment we take very seriously. Alongside the company’s regular in-depth salon expert training programme in cutting and colouring techniques, advances and new products, the  trainees are also enlisted on SVQ Hairdressing Levels 2 & 3 which is managed by ACT (Ambition Centre for Training) and offers accredited and structured theoretical education.

    Throughout the year trainees growth and achievements are recognised and our Trainee Competitions are an opportunity for them to show off their creativity and skills and wow our judges to win cool prizes. In addition, our individual salon Trainee of the Year Awards are run annually and are presented at our Achievement Awards night.
