Meet Our Team at Rawdon:

Jemma. Style Director, Rawdon SalonJemma
Style Director, Rawdon Salon

I became a qualified stylist in 2006 and since then I’ve built up a busy clientèle at Yazz. In 2007 I was successful in gaining a place on the TIGI Inspirational Youth programme at the academy in London. Through Inspirational Youth I learnt advanced cutting and colouring techniques, spent time working on photo-shoots and also with catwalk models. It was an amazing experience and I learnt an enormous amount from this, as well as building my confidence and exploring creative ideas. In 2008 I reached the finals of the Clothes Show hair competition in Birmingham. The competition is for young hairdressers and it was a really good experience to compete on a national basis. I also competed in the Matrix Destination of Fame in 2008 and got through to the finals in London. Through my work with Inspirational Youth I had a 3 page-spread published in Creative Hair magazine. I enjoy updating clients images and suggesting new ways to style their hair.

Style Director, Rawdon

Hi I’m Olivia and I’m a Style Director here at Yazz Number One Hair Studio. I have worked at Yazz since 2006 and absolutely love it! I am qualified up to and including NVQ Level 3 in hairdressing and now run a really busy clientele. Since working at Yazz I have been presented the most amazing opportunities, including been part of Inspirational Youth at the TIGI Academy, assisting at hair shows, photo shoots and furthering my training through advanced cutting and colouring courses. Attending hair shows in London to see the world of hairdressing come alive has been a huge inspiration. Anyway, enough about me, it will be fantastic to meet you and take care of all your hairdressing needs!

Style Director, Rawdon Salon

I have worked at the salon since October 1995 and have seen many changes throughout the business bringing it to the standard it is today. Over this time I have built up a strong clientèle. I have a number of regular clients and I now class most of them as friends, so much so I can hardly fit anyone in my column!! I work 3 days a week and am married with a teenage daughter. I really enjoy working with the team at Yazz and the whole atmosphere that the salon creates, I also have a diploma in Customer Service and use this to the best of my ability.

Hey! I’m Abi and I specialise in TIGI colour. In January I will be furthering my education by doing a colour degree at the TIGI Academy in London. I absolutely LOVE doing highlights and seeing the outcome of the colour I have created. I recently attended The British Hairdressing Awards in London and whilst there me and Rosie were offered the opportunity to assist the TIGI Creative Team at a Vivienne Westwood show. I absolutely love photo shoots and jumped at the chance! I met Janice Dickinson and The Saturdays, which was ace!! I have been on a number of retail and development courses and next year I hope to be part of the TIGI Inspiration Youth Team. I really hope to see you soon. Love Abi x

Melissa Yazz Rawdon, Leeds StylistMelissa
Senior Stylist, Rawdon Salon

Since joining Yazz in 2009 I have achieved lots and I’m really excited about my future career in hairdressing because of this. I attended the Yazz Training Academy run by Karen which was really good as it brought my hairdressing skills up to speed and to the high standards expected by this salon. I now run my own column each week and I’m building a reliable clientèle of my own. On top of attending in-house training I have also travelled to London to the TIGI Academy and completed their Transitional Cutting Course which was really good fun and re-enforced what I had already learnt. I have attended TIGI product courses both at the salon and in Leeds to help me in understanding how to get the best out of each and every style I create. As part of a really good team at Yazz I have supported other stylists when on stage at shows and competitions and this is always great fun and a good opportunity to see what else is being done in the industry.
