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
Director / Manager
Since joining Leeds based Salon,Yazz Number One Hair Studio in June 2010. I have already experienced so many new experiences presented to me. I am qualified to NVQ Level 3 and have been hairdressing since 2004.
Last year, out of thousands of young hopefuls, I was selected to take part in Tigi Inspirational Youth 2012. This is an 18 month training programme where I was lucky enough to receive intensive training from the likes of Tigis Nick Irwin and Anthony Mascolo, from Tigis Creative and Educational Teams and experience working on professional models, photographic shoots, session styling and much more. I also worked on stage at the Excel Centre, at Salon International, London, October 2012.
In 2012 I was also selected as one of the top 20 finalists of Young British Hairdresser.
I feel really excited about hairdressing, all that I can do now and achieve in the future!
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.
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
