Having been part of the Paul Mitchell ART Team for 6 years has fuelled Holly’s confidence and talent, which she has demonstrated on stage professionally, including showcasing in Poland and back here at Gershwins. Holly has featured in our video and editorial work across the country showcasing the best of her work. Holly loves to share her knowledge with her guests and educates the Team with Creative Collection sessions.

‘Being able to bring my knowledge back to Gershwins and use it in creative training sessions to develop my colleagues, makes all the hard work worthwhile. It’s really important in hairdressing not to limit yourself and accept any opportunities that are available to you.

Kylie is a key member of our Salon Coordinator team. Compassion and commitment best describe the way that Kylie works with her guests, putting everyone at ease, making them feel relaxed and leave feeling fantastic. Our Future Professionals also benefit from the caring and meticulous approach Kylie has to training NVQ2. Previously a Paul Mitchell ART Team member, Kylie is now part of our specialist wedding hair and makeup team and loves nothing more than being out on location at a photo shoot or travelling to a venue to prepare her brides on their wedding day.

‘I feel lucky to have found such an amazing career and haven’t limited myself to just being on the salon floor. With many years under my belt and experience in different sectors,
I feel very privileged to be part of the management team and helping nurture our growing team.

Encouraging them to graduate to a high standard beyond the normal parameters of NVQ2. Her commitment and dedication to education has gained her a teaching degree, showing her students the opportunities that can be achieved at Gershwins. Her students have described her as ‘caring and dedicated to sharing her knowledge’. South Devon College regularly praise her teaching skills as ‘outstanding and concise’. You will be in safe hands with her brilliant attention to detail.

‘Teaching has always been a great passion for me, and a goal I have been aiming for since I started my training and I’m so excited to be able to pass on my knowledge. I love all aspects of hairdressing and love a new challenge! Its great to see our Future Professionals passion and skill grow. As an Educator I believe training within a salon environment is so important. I started at Gershwins as a trainee myself and know, first hand, it gives greater opportunities for learners to be hands on, and really get a feel for salon life.

Matt has been involved in demonstrating product and technique to South Devon College students. ‘I love nothing more than the transformation process of a bespoke colour
and cut and how it makes a difference to my guests’ day and their confidence. Throughout my career I have been inspired by hairdressers and guests alike enabling me to push the boundaries on a day to day basis. The industry is evolving and at Gershwins we constantly develop, giving me the opportunity to offer my guests the best experience. Being able to offer a make-up service is also a bonus and something that I’m really interested in. With the growing trend in men’s cutting I love to keep on track and with our on-going training programme offer my male guests all the new techniques’.
