City centre salon in a village setting
When Spencer and Stephen opened Taylor Hughes Hairdressing on Honley’s high street in 2009, they brought the ethos of a city centre salon into a village setting.
“We wanted our hair salon to offer our clients an ‘experience’ rather than just a haircut. So we introduced little things that make it a memorable experience for clients. We also place a great deal of value on training for everyone in the team, from apprentices to our top stylists,” said Stephen.
It’s also the relaxed, friendly vibe at Taylor Hughes Hairdressing that attracts clients and keeps them coming back. Spencer and Stephen certainly work best as a partnership. Their contrasting characters – Stephen admits to being the talkative one – complement each other perfectly, creating a magical atmosphere that makes working and visiting the salon a treat.
Trained and talented
The two directors certainly have a passion for their craft, which is something they instil in their team at all levels. Spencer and Stephen are both highly trained. They hold L’Oreal colour degrees and are qualified barbers as well as hairstylists, and continually refresh their skills and knowledge through professional development courses.
Keen to pass on their experience and expertise, the directors always have an apprentice in the salon. In fact, Spencer and Stephen work closely with the local college, and are authorised to assess their own apprentices. This means that all Taylor Hughes apprentices are fully trained in-house to their exacting standards.
“There are no short cuts. We start with the basics before moving on. All our apprentices are taught how to blow dry hair properly, which is a dying art these days. There’s no need to rely on straighteners or curling wands if you’re skilled at blow drying hair,” said Stephen.
To help their apprentices progress, Taylor Hughes are often on the search for people to act as models in return for a free cut. Keep an eye on the Taylor Hughes Hairdressing Facebook page and website for details.
