All of our team at architecthair share the same philosophy, to create fabulous hair and maintain the highest standard of service. We want to delight and make people feel truly great about their hairdressing experience with us. Each of our senior stylists have advanced training in hair cutting, styling, creative and corrective colouring, team members have experience of session and
photographic work that has lead to the salon being featured in high end magazines and informs our creative work. We invest heavily in the training of our team and you’ll find our stylists are at the top of their game both creatively and technically the whole team is is passionate about their work, we value every customer and aim to give the “extra” that other salons don’t.
My names Callum and I literally love every aspect of hairdressing. I don’t really have a favourite part as I love everything hair related and I pride myself on getting to know all my clients and giving them the best service I can provide.
I am caring and very passionate about hair, the best feeling in the world is when a client loves their hair and I strive for that with each appointment with me.
My guilty pleasure would have to be Fanta orange, I literally can’t drink enough of it.
Abi Senior Stylist
Hairdressing has been the biggest part of my life for the past seven years, it developed from a hobby, to a college degree, to work and finally moving to Leeds to take up my role as a stylist at architecthair. Fashion is a passion for me, I’m always aware of current trends, I draw inspiration from the collections into the work I do, it’s incredible how trends filter through into our day to day salon work!!
I’m an all round hairdresser, fully trained in every aspect and I love all elements of my job. I love a good colour challenge and because I like my hair long and sometimes wear extensions myself I enjoy my role as a “Raccoonista” extensionist – I love the drama of making such a change in someone’s looks!! If you’re anything like me, your hair means everything to you, and that’s why I sit down with every client to discuss exactly they want, so working together we can achieve the best look for them From the moment my clients enter the salon, I do everything I can to make them feel relaxed and welcome, and to ensure that they leave feeling strong, confident and sexy…. and look fantastic!!!
Best Hairdressing moment: Working London Collections Men, having my session work for Leeds Beckett University featured in Creative Head and being featured as “the one to watch”. Specialism: I love all aspects of my work but this year I want to focus on extensions. Guilty Pleasure: Dolly Parton and Champagne!!! What gets you through the day: …endless cups of tea!
Claire Senior Stylist & Colour Specialist
I love all aspects of hairdressing but colour is my passion! I am a L’Oreal Colour Specialist, this has given me an understanding of colouring hair that is second to none. The colour specialist qualification sets the standard for professionals that really take colouring hair to perfection seriously and I am one of less than a thousand hairdressers across the UK to have completed the course. This combination of creativity, knowledge and the fact that I am personally obsessed with ensuring that all my clients leave the salon feeling completely satisfied makes me a great choice to be your hairdresser! If you’d like to sit down and talk about your hairstyle and colour call the salon and arrange a free consultation, I love working with my clients as a team to create the right look for them. I believe customer satisfaction is key and that’s what makes my job worthwhile, making people happy and confident with the way that they look all the time.
I helped create the recent collection for architecthair and have worked backstage at the London Collections: Men. I was a regional finalist of L’oreal Colour Trophy 2015.
Specialism: Colour, colour and more colour, as a salon we’ve just got through to the regional final of the L’Oreal colour Trophy so I’m working hard on developing new techniques for that, but day to day I love working closely with my clients to get their colours just right! Best Hairdressing moment: Achieving 94% in my colour degree and working alongside hair god John Vial at London Collections Men. Guilty Pleasure: the 80’s… clothes, music so wrong but I love it!
Emma Senior Stylist
I started work at architecthair as a Saturday girl age 13 and have never looked back, from cutting, colouring to hair ups and everything in between I love it all! Everyone can have beautiful hair! I am passionate, bubbly and an extremely good listener. My aim is perfection! I love meeting new people and finding out about them. Making you feel fabulous is what I am here to do. If you fancy a change but you’re not sure what, then come in for a consultation, I absolutely love a challenge so if you are a bit nervous about getting your hair done you are in safe hands. If you like having your hair put up for a night out, wedding or any special occasion I am the person to book in with!
I really enjoyed working on fashion shows and have entered three competitions as one of the youngest entrants in each category. The BBC 3 Young Hairdresser of the Year, Regional finalist of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy young colourist and L’Oreal Evolution Team
Best Hairdressing moment: getting into the prestigious L’Oreal Evolution team. Specialism: I love doing total transformations, and I love to do long hair dressing. What gets you through the day: Skittles I’ve always got a pack on the go!
Louise Owner & Salon Director
I own and run architecthair and I love to create hair that makes my clients feel confident, sexy and edgy. After many years experience in hairdressing I pride myself on the fact that I really listen to my clients needs, taking into consideration not only the suitability of a hair cut for their face shape and figure as well as skin tones for their colour, but also their lifestyle, personality and budget.
Your hair is the one aspect of your look that you wear 24-7, it’s the very first thing that people notice about you and is so important that it needs to work for you all the time, in business and pleasure, come rain or shine!
Best Hairdressing moment: I’m really lucky because I get a high whenever I see the architecthair Team working together, I’m so proud of them all, lovely people, all fabulous hairdressers. I love my team! What gets you through the day: Earl Grey 2 sugars, the assistants know whenever I get a moment I’ll have one! My guilty pleasure: a nice glass of Chablis! Specialism:, understanding peoples needs I’m a good listener, and I ask lots of questions. I truly believe that to get the best results you’ve got to totally understand your clients and that means knowing about lifestyle, tastes, schedules, so much more than just how they want their hair to look!
