For me, hairdressing isn’t a job. It’s a passion and truly believe it has the power to change the way people live their lives. Whether its a flawless cut, a glossy colour or a gorgeous blow dry a person’s locks have a direct impact on poise, first impressions and above all, self confidence.

senior stylist

Working at GTH is amazing; we are a great charismatic team and thrive off each other with experiences, knowledge, and vision. I have been in the hair industry for over 20 years, starting off in a city centre salon, gaining all of my qualifications and learning from those valuable experiences. I then became a trainer and assessor teaching hairdressing to students throughout Leicestershire. But being back in the salon is where my heart is. This is not just a job it’s my passion and there is nothing better than making a client look and feel great. I love all aspects of hairdressing and love using my skills at GTH.



I am super excited to be working alongside such an inventive team at GTH. I've been evolving my hairdressing career over the past 6 years I've gained many qualifications and trained with some of the industry's leading hairdressers.

I successfully gained a place on a young artistic team in London giving me amazing experiences such as doing hair at London fashion week, and several hair shows.

In every aspect of hairdressing I pride myself on making beautiful hair for all of my clients. 



fantastic hairdresser in the making!!

I am loving every moment of being part of the Gavin Taylor Hair team. I'm currently studying an NVQ level 2 in Hairdressing and will continue onto level 3 so that I can gain as much knowledge as I can before I qualify as a hair stylist. I have also completed a Theatrical Make-up course and love combining hair and make-up to create a total look.

I love meeting new people in the salon and getting to know each and every client.



junior stylist

I enjoy every minute of my time working at Gavin Taylor Hair. Qualifying and becoming a Juniour Stylist is a big achievement for me as it has always been my dream to be a hairdresser.

I work with a great team with great ideas that helps me grow with experience, passion and positivity everyday. I can't wait to see what the future holds and going on more courses and entering competitions.

I love getting to know our clients and can't wait to meet you all.




Woof! I generally sit back and ensure no riff raff comes into my salon!  I particularly enjoy getting lots of fuss and attention from our clients.

I am resident in the salon every Wednesday and Thursday, so if you have an appointment on these days, I cant wait to meet you!

By listening closely to his clients, Gavin was able to move the business into new directions.

We care about people, consumers, suppliers and the products we create.


In our research we discovered that through using chemicals in cosmetics such as shampoos and conditioners, instead of curing both dry itchy scalps and greasy limp hair, these so called shampoos are causing these effects, causing you to buy more of their product to eradicate the symptoms. This exciting new range of shampoos & conditioners provide both health benefits and a sense of well being at same time as caring for your hair, naturally.
