ABOUT US

Yazz Number One Hair Studio 

Yazz Number One Hair Studio opened for trading 19 years ago at a little shop in Yeadon with a small and enthusiastic team.

Paul Shakeshaft, the owner of the group of salons has always been keen to build the business and move the company forward within the hairdressing industry, ensuring that Yazz is definitely on the map.

We have expanded our business and now have three salons: Rawdon – our flagship hair and beauty salon, Yeadon and Guiseley, and now recently opened, in Leeds, a new Yazz Hairdressing Academy.

We believe education is key – we employ a full time in-house educator who supports our trainees and keeps our Creative Team up to date with new techniques and cutting styles.

We regularly attend seminars, cutting courses and are frequent visitors to the TIGI Academies in London and Manchester. Here we are encouraged to be bold with our creativity inspiring us to move forward and re-evaluate the things we have previously learnt.

We come back into the salon with renewed enthusiasm and passion, in turn passing this on to clientèle.

We continually push ourselves – studying trends, practising techniques, and more importantly listening and learning.

We work in an environment where customer care is key; the service industry is extremely competitive so we work hard to ensure standards are always 110%. The levels of service and professionalism we expect from our team is exceptionally high, however in return for their commitment we offer great rewards including holidays to exotic locations such as Barbados, Las Vegas or Los Angeles.

For the fun side of our work we attend fashion shows, charity events and our artistic team are continually entering competitions with our photo shoot work. It is definitely fun but also hard work, requiring determination and dedication from everyone involved.

Thanks for taking the time to read about us, it would be great to see you soon!

Paul and the Yazz Team.

"First visit to Yazz. It has a relaxed atmosphere, which is just what I needed. I had my hair done by Melissa, she was really nice and did a great job on my hair. Prices are reasonable and I like that you can get a rough idea of cost from their website before your visit. I'll definitely be returning."
