At Academy Salons, we love showcasing our fantastic employees, as demonstrated by our annual awards. Every member of the team - from stylists to front of house - delivers an invaluable service, but they also have a story to tell. This month, we hear from Charlotte, assistant manager and salon consultant at our Weybridge salon, which opened in July 2016. She reveals who inspired her to pursue a career in hairdressing and shares some of her top hair tips.

Why do you love working for Academy Salons?

I love working for Academy Salons as I feel like I'm always getting up-to-date training, and the company always pushes and supports you to the best of your ability and beyond.

If you had to give a top hair, what would it be?

My top hair tip would be to always use Olaplex treatments in your colour and at home. It’s saved my hair and I’d never ever look back. You can never go wrong with Olaplex!y to

What’s your favourite style of the moment?

I love the beachy wave look. Everyone is loving this at the moment.

Who is your hair inspiration?

Many people inspired me as I was growing up, including my Nan, who was a hairdresser. I used to watch her every Friday morning doing a colour and a set, even though the hood dryers were scary!

What’s your favourite colour tone at the moment?

My favourite colour tone would be white pearl. It's such a lovely colour as it's just got that slight hint of lilac.

Whose hair would you love to have?

I would love to have the singer-songwriter Anne-Marie’s hair. It's wicked!
