We often say Academy Salons is like one big family – everyone knows everyone. However, we think our customers should also be familiar with our fantastic team.
This month, Georgia Hann reveals her top hair repair tips, the Royal whose locks she’d kill for, and the stylists she loves to follow on Instagram.
Name: Georgia Hann
Position: Assistant Manager
Working at Academy Salons since: 01.11.11
Specialisms: Colouring, Styling, Extensions, Blow-Drying
Why do you love working for Academy Salons?
I love my team, I love my clientele and I love how far I have progressed with Academy. I started working as a Saturday girl – now I’m assistant manager in the Claygate branch, and I couldn’t picture myself working anywhere else.
Do you have a specialism with Academy Salons? What would customers book in with you for?
Mainly cutting (ladies and gents) but I can also style and colour. I’m comfortable with everything from base colours and highlights to ombré and balayage. Customers also book with me for extensions and Brazilian blow-dries.
If you had to give a top hair tip, what would it be?
I’d recommend having a weekly repair treatment on your hair. It’s really easy, but most people don’t actually do it, and you’ll be amazed at the difference it can make. Alterna Recovery shampoo in the Caviar range works miracles.
What’s your favourite style at the moment? Is there a style/trend that you’re being asked for or seeing a lot of?
At the moment, my favourite is a cool boho midi haircut, just below shoulders with a loose beach wave. A soft balayage really brings out this trendy style too.
What’s your favourite hair colour tone at the moment?
At the moment I really like chestnut and coppery colours – a nice sandy, warm blonde looks very stylish if foiled.
Whose hair would you love to have?
Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex. Beautiful shine, full of life, lots of it and so effortlessly done. Always stunning!
Who are your top recommended people to follow right now?
Salvmule_salon_director (always positive and loves a positive quote) and Guy_tang (his hair colours are insane).
