Michelle : Team Leader/StylistMy favourite part of hairdressing is cutting & styling and seeing the difference a good haircut can make.
I’ve been hairdressing for 18 years and I enjoy working with the public and having a good old chat! I have lived and worked in a salon abroad and I really enjoy travel.
In my years of working in a salon I have had clients fall asleep while having their hair blow dried, clients been sick on me and a lady pass out whilst having rollers put in, which resulted in a ambulance being needed! But I still would not change the job that I do as everyday is different and that’s what keeps it exciting.
My working days are: Thursday 9-5.30pm Friday 9-5.30pm & Saturday 8-1pm.
Tracy: StylistThis is the perfect job for me as I like to express creativity through hair and making people feel great about themselves. As chatting is one of my favourite pastimes, this is a major bonus.
I’ve been at Constantines Salon since we opened in November 2016. Outside of work I enjoy horse riding and gardening but the thing I love most is spending time with my family, 2 children and friends.
When I was training I couldn’t understand why the perm I did didn’t go curly. Later I realised it was because I’d used the neutraliser instead of the perm lotion and had to redo it.
My working days are: Tuesday 9am-3pm and Wednesday 9am-3pm
Kirsty: StylistMy favourite part of hairdressing is seeing my clients happy face when I have finished their treatment, putting all my skills into practice and doing something that I love doing as my job.
I got into hairdressing 11 years ago as I loved being creative and practical and enjoyed putting hair up. I started with work experience in a salon which then led to a full time apprenticeship, I have been qualified 7 years with a Level 2 NVQ.
The worst/most embarrassing moment in my hairdressing career was when I first got my thinning scissors I tried them out on my now husband. Let’s just say I got a little carried away and he wasn’t left with much hair at the end of it. However, 11 years on we are still together, married and have a little girl. He has just about let me use them on him again while being supervised ;-)
My working days are: Wednesday 9-3pm Thursday 9-5.30 Friday 9-5.30 & Saturday 8-3pm.

Nicole : ReceptionistBeing the receptionist at Constantines salon is absolutely perfect for me. I get to work with a great team and meet some really interesting people that come through our doors.
I was very fortunate to be a stay at home Mum for all of my 4 boys over the last 30 plus years but they have all grown up now. With only 2 at home I was left feeling a little redundant after many years of being Mum, Cleaner, Cook, Nurse , etc I knew I wanted to do something for myself that would able me to meet new and interesting people so when the perfect opportunity came my way I jumped at the chance to be part of something new and exciting.
