Tell us a bit more about you, your experience and your salon
I’m a hairstylist and the salon owner at McQueens Hairdressing, Bristol. I began my own business a month after my 18th birthday and I’ve been running my salon for 25 years now. As a hairdresser, my main aim is to give each of my clients a personalised service that focuses on their needs. I have gained many loyal clients over the years and I pride myself on our long-standing relationships we have.
McQueens is now becoming well known for its fantastic Great Lengths hair extension package and we are proud to have become a Gold Salon in less than a year. I’m passionate about my work with Great Lengths and in 2015 I plan to open a flagship salon dedicated to my work with hair extensions.
What was the inspiration behind your winning Great Lengths Awards entry?
My inspiration for my entry came from my day-to-day work. My clients range from late teens to late 60’s and I’ve developed skills to fulfill all requirements. From filling in gaps and creating thickness to adding a full head of extensions, I believe my varied use of extensions has set me apart and this is why I decided to enter the Great Lengths awards.
How long have you been working with Great Lengths?
I have been qualified in Great Length hair extensions for two years. I’ve used other hair extensions companies in the past but I wasn’t happy with the results I was getting. I developed a passion to re-educate my clients on how extensions should look. As soon as I touched Great Lengths’ hair I knew investing in the product was going to be a huge benefit. Great Lengths use 100% human hair and look completely natural, which allows me to give my clients the hair they have always dreamed of.
What’s your most requested hair extensions look, and why?
Most of my clients want a fuller and sexier look but at the same time to appear as natural as possible. To maintain this look I put trust in all of my clients and work to a strict policy, which includes complimentary maintenance, products, brushes and removal.
