Choose Your Perfect Hairdresser
Sandra Snowdon Head of Education
Sandra is a brilliant hairdresser and an outstanding, inspirational tutor. She is trained in hairdressing and customer service and is also a qualified lecturer, assessor and internal verifier.
Rebecca Liddle Senior Stylist
As a mum of three little girls, you would think that senior stylist Rebecca already had her hands full, but this busy creative stylist loves hairdressing. She particularly enjoys foiling but is a classy act at cutting too.
Donna McKay Senior Stylist
Donna has more than 15 years experience in hairdressing. She is really into her music and fashion and loves the Ibiza scene. A really cool character with a great knowledge of what’s going on at street level both in fashion and the coolest tracks, she looks after the salon playlist so we’re always on trend.
Adam Robinson Senior Stylist
Adam brings bags of skill and enthusiasm to the team. He has recently returned from Sassoon in London and is wowing Gilesgate with his new skills.
Lizzie Milburn Junior Stylist
The lovely Lizzie is an expert at head massage and really loves to make our clients feel relaxed and special. She has a keen eye for fashion and make-up and is currently studying hard for her level 3 qualification.
Zoe Crawford Junior Stylist
Zoe has been with Janet Maitland Hair Excellence since September 2013 and you’re sure to be impressed by her amazing relaxing head massages. Zoe’s a fan of streamline silky locks so is a brilliant option for sleek smooth blow-dries.
Emma Carter Beauty Therapist
Emma is our calming, nurturing beauty specialist. A fully-qualified beauty therapist, she’s also trained in Indian Head Massage, Hopi Ear Candles and Aromatheraphy. If you’re looking for ‘wow!’ nails for a special occasion Emma is a stiletto nails star!
Leah Allen Senior Stylist
Leah is a hairdresser who very much subscribes to the ‘never stop learning’ school of thought. She loves trying new hair trends and colours. One of her many talents is fashion gents – but don’t expect her to talk football while you’re having your cut!
Lauren Anderson Stylist
Lauren is a busy mum, but she just loves her passion: hairdressing. She’s a stylist who loves to stay up to date with the latest new trends and looks – it’s what keeps her away from her cleaning compulsion.
Nicholas Greeves Apprentice
Nicholas has been one of our Saturday guys for quite a while now so he is already settled well into his new career. He loves fashion and is relishing his role in the salon team and he’s already been involved in an award-winning photoshoot.
Caitlin Pollard Apprentice
Caitlin decided she wanted to be a hairdressing star after she’d finished her A-Levels, so where else would she go to to help her fulfil her ambitions? Already a very popular member of the team, Caitlin has a great future ahead of her in the salon.
Beau Cordell Apprentice
One of our newer team member, Beau, is already getting to grips with the world of hairdressing. We believe he is destined to be a big part of the team, although we doubt he’ll get the older team members involved in his sport – skateboarding!
