Hey! Iím 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
Since joining Yazz in June 2010
I have already experienced so many new things
and had lots of exciting opportunities presented
to me. Iíve travelled to London on several
occasions visiting the TIGI Academy to meet all
of the team there which was great fun and really
inspiring and also to attend Salon International
to support one of the team on stage. Iím
qualified up to and including my NVQ Level 3 and
have been hairdressing since 2004. I would love
to get more involved with Yazzís creative team
doing photo-shoot work and competitions.
Ultimately I would like to become a trainer and
go into education within hairdressing. I feel
really excited about my future in hairdressing
and all that I can now do and achieve!
I became a qualified stylist in
2006 and since then Iíve built up a busy
clientele 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.
I have worked at Yazz No. 1 Hair Studio in Rawdon for approximately six years. I was trained as a Gents Stylist many years ago and since then I have attended many gents cutting and colouring courses in order to keep my knowledge up to date. I work with a wonderful team of people and I really enjoy the creative work I do.
I joined Yazz in Rawdon in October 2010 and am really enjoying working here. The newly refurbished beauty room creates the perfect atmosphere and surroundings for all clients to enjoy their treatments and Ďmeí time!
I have been qualified since 1995 and have built on my original training as new treatments and trends emerge. Since joining Yazz I have trained in Minx nail system and also the Jessica Geleration system which has been great fun and I love seeing the fantastic results that both of these products deliver.
I offer a ĎNo handsí massage which is absolutely brilliant and both the stylists and my new clients are enjoying this new service. This treatment is more relaxing than conventional massage as I use the soft surface of my forearms to release all the tension and stress from the body!
joining Yazz in 2009 I have achieved lots and
Iím 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 Iím building a reliable clientele 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
