Manager / Art Director
Toni & Guy was the clear career choice for me as they are renound for their professional training and fashion focused branding and I was lucky enough to join them 11 years ago. Being a naturally shy person at 16 I was a little apprehensive to start a job within the fashion industry but to my surprise I was immediately welcomed in to my lovely family at Toni & Guy Colchester. In time I realised that people can feel intimidated about coming in to a Salon, like I was and that actually, being a relaxed person makes them feel welcomed and comfortable and I love that I am able to do that for them. Im confident in what I do and im happy to be able to help people with their hair so that they can enjoy it. We have a mixture of characters within our team and there is someone to suit every customer. We get so many great comments about the atmosphere in the salon and we really pride ourselves on that as we strive to give every customer an enjoyable experience. I feel incredibly lucky to have such a great team working along side me as they teach me so much and I genuinely find them so inspiring.

Rob's client Kirstine Lee says " 5 star service. I’d never get my hair cut anywhere else. If you get your hair cut by Rob you’ll be in the best hands. I’ve never been disappointed."
I started working for Toni and Guy 14 years ago and I have never looked back. I quickly realised I had a passion for styling and I was lucky enough to win the junior competition for my region which was very exciting. I later entered the finals for the L'Oréal Colour trophy Competition which was a lot of fun to take part in. There are so many paths to take within this company and it tailors a career to suit everyone of its staff members which is why I love it. My path was teaching which is a skill I am so glad to have gained as I have been able to pass my knowledge on to so many talented hair stylists. I enjoy cutting all hair styles but particularly love cutting bobs, curly hair and long men's hair

I am now very excited to start my next chapter here at TONI&GUY Colchester with such an amazing and professional team that I have been immediately welcomed into. I specialise in classic cutting and styling and I enjoy creating both men's and women's hair. My team would describe me as creative, motivated, bubbly, attentive and easygoing which I guess is why I have loved my job for the last 25 years

Style Director / Staff Trainer
IM AIMEE! I joined the company in 2009 and immediately knew I had found a place where I could flourish, grow and be supported in any path that I wished to take. I quickly realised that I have a passion for Hair up, Bridal and Occasional hair. My passion for Hair up has taken me everywhere, I have worked on top shows along side our amazing International Artistic Directors at London Fashion Week and in pop up salons at Fashion Week Festival. Bridal hair has even taken me as far as Santorini where I was flown out by my stunning client to do her hair for her special day, it was amazing! When I'm in the salon I love all aspects of hairdressing including cutting, styling and colouring. I also act as the Strength in Style Consultant and take great pride in helping people through their difficult times. I have true love for seeing the smile on a clients face when you reveal their hair to them. I love this brand and all the amazing courses that keep me knowledgeable within this industry.

My highlight with the company has to be the high standard of education you receive and the training courses that are offered to you to ensure that you are the best that you can be.

Stylist / Technician
I have been hairdressing since 2013 and working for Toni and Guy Colchester for over 2 years now.

I have been lucky enough to work at London Fashion Week which is something I had always wanted to do.

***Congratulations to Agnes who is currently on Maternity Leave, she will return in 2020***
Growing up I always had a passion for hairdressing. In my eyes there is no better feeling then being the reason that someone feels confident and proud to show off their image that you contributed in creating. Women's hair is their crown that they wear constantly and its my job to make sure they always feel brave and courageous when leaving the house. Throughout school it was common knowledge that Toni & Guy was undoubtedly one of the best in the game when it comes to their level of training and opportunities. Knowing this, I started my journey in 2015 as an assistant at the Colchester Salon. I achieved so many great things throughout my years of being an assistant, such as working at London Fashion Week and winning the London Region of the 2017 assistant competition. I have a real passion for Braiding and Blow Drying, these are things that I very naturally became strong at and have always enjoyed. I'm very proud to work for such a global company that could potentially take you anywhere around the world.
Days Off: Sunday, Wednesday and Friday
Danny's client Asana says: "This talented young man did exactly what I had envisioned for my hair. I can’t express enough how happy I am with my results. You only know how damaged your hair is once you get home and wash it yourself after a bleaching session- feels like I never had anything done!"
I've been working for Toni & GUY since 2006 where I started my journey as a Saturday girl , once I finished school I joined the company full time which is when I passed my Vardering with a Level 4 Certificate. I love working for Toni & Guy as it allows me to push the boundary's and be creative within the hairdressing industry. I love that I get to meet all kinds of clients and I really enjoy talking to them all. I particularly enjoy doing Collection Colours and Colour changes as a dramatic change always makes the clients go wow! While working in the salon I have completed many training courses which is something I love to do.
Days Off: Monday & Wednesday
Jade's client Emma Clark says "Jade is lovely and very helpful when advising me on my hair"
I began my career with Toni and Guy in 2004 as a Saturday Girl. I feel really lucky to have worked here as a junior as I got to gain so many great skills at such a young age. Education is very important to me and its great to work for a company that believes education is key for a successful and happy career. I love that with hairdressing I can entirely change the way someone feels about themselves increasing their self esteem and making them feel fabulous. I enjoy all aspects of Colouring hair with highlights being a particular strength of mine. Thanks to the opportunities given to me I have been able to train our assistants in colour and its been a pleasure. I think its rare to be able to say that you love what you do, the company you work for and the team of people you work with but I really do!
