Get to know Kirsty, one of our talented Stylists from Hair Solved Manchester.
It feels like quite a while since we last shared one of our 5 Minute Interviews with a member of the Hair Solved Team.
We couldn’t be more delighted that our newest Q&A is with Kirsty, one of the newest members of the team at Hair Solved Manchester. As you will read Kirsty’s attitude to her work is perfectly aligned with that of Hair Solved; delivering the highest possible standard of hairdressing in a welcoming and caring environment.
Q1. What did you do before you worked at Hair Solved?

Q2. What attracted you to Hair Solved as an employer?
I have always had an interest in hair loss solutions and Trichology.
The work the girls do at Hair Solved is amazing! I know that female hair loss and hair thinning can affect every aspect of a woman’s life and seeing our client’s confidence grow is so rewarding.

Really important, when I have a client in the chair, I want them to feel relaxed and comfortable. Building a good rapport and providing an in-depth consultation helps ease their fears and ensures I provide the best service.

Q7. Do you find that customers get emotional when you talk to them about hair loss?
Some do. Everyone is different and deals with their hair loss differently. But no matter how motional a client may feel we are always there for them every step of the way.
Q8. Do you find this difficult or fulfilling to deal with? Do you feel that you help them regain their confidence?
Absolutely, it is amazing to see our client’s transformations, both their hair and their confidence.It is a really fulfilling and rewarding job.

Most clients are overjoyed, some a little overwhelmed but we always ensure clients are happy when they leave. It is especially important that we ensure they are confident in maintaining and styling their new hair.

Yes, I have just finished my Level 4 and am currently studying Level 5. I really enjoy studying and developing my skills and bringing all that I learn to my work at Hair Solved.

A good old movie night with the Kids.
