As many of you will already know we like to promote one of our favourite UK salons every month on the blog. We pick salons who we genuinely admire with talented staff who are working at a high level within the industry. This month is no exception with the David Thomas salon.
David Thomas has over 30 years of experience in the hairdressing industry. He is a commercial hairdresser as well as an educator, with 3 salons in the North West, which he has developed to become one of the leading hairdressing groups in the region.
David Thomas Hairdressing has recently celebrated its 26th year in business so to say David knows the industry well is an understatement! David's had his fair share of accolades and his photographic work has appeared in both national and international magazines and his talent has been recognised by the prestigious British Hairdressing Awards.
All the current team at David Thomas have been with the salon since leaving school including the salon manager, Gemma who is now 30. The salon challenges the team of hairdressers and constantly encourages them to work on new styles and techniques. Delivering seminars for Neal & Wolf also ensures that the stylist team are always researching and looking for the latest fashion ideas.
Questions & Answer Session
We put our questions to David Thomas to get his thoughts on the industry. Here is what he had to say.
What makes your salon different from the others in the area?
As a hairdresser our role is to get the hair to do something it naturally doesn't want to do!
It is imperative that we have amazing products to get the hair to perform. Here at DT we use a combination of tools and products to create fab hair.
Why do you choose Neal & Wolf for your salon?
Neal & Wolf is a small compact, profitable range that delivers exactly what the products say on the bottle! They look great on the shelf and smell fantastic!
What is your star Neal & Wolf product?
My favourite product is Elevate...a volumising product that lifts and elevates the hair...it allows to create movement, shine and shape within the hair...but gives lots of protection from heat too!
