Jo – Salon Director

Jo – Salon Director

PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT I've been in the hairdressing industry for an amazing 14 years and I absolutely love it! I've done some really exciting things so far in my career such as travelling across Europe supporting L'Oreal as an ID Artist promoting new products and hair techniques. I've worked on a number of high profile fashion shows and photo shoots and have had my work on front covers on National magazines such as Vogue. I've worked overseas in Australia which was a great experience and whilst I was there I worked alongside Australian Hairdresser of the Year and Colourist of the Year. I'm part of the Stuart Holmes Creative Team and I love being involved in the variety of creative work that we do as a salon. One of my favourite and most rewarding aspects of my role as a hairdresser is that I love making someone look and feel the best that they possibly can. I enjoy working with clients who might be a little 'lost' with their image and I like to make a real difference for them - it's really important to me that my clients feel amazing and that they feel that their look is 'on trend' and suits their lifestyle.

TOP TIP: Make sure you book in for your cut and colour every six weeks to ensure your hair always looks amazing.

FAVOURITE PRODUCT: I love Shu Uemura Essence Absolue as it can be used for nourishing your hair and maintaining good condition whilst also adding shine and smoothness.

IF YOU COULD HAVE A SUPER POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE: I would love to able to read people’s minds…. It would be so telling!

FIRST THING TO BUY IF YOU WON THE LOTTERY: A round the world ticket. Travelling is in my blood and I love seeing foreign places and experiencing different cultures.

"Hello.Please could you let Jo know how absolutely delighted I was with my hair yesterday. When I got home and had chance to have a proper look, the colour was absolutely perfect - as well (of course!) as the cut being just fab. The last few times Jo has done my hair, it's the best colour I've EVER had anywhere. Please do pass on my thanks"

"Hi all. I had to write to you - I've been in a state all week from a sketchy hair cut (not with you!) that Jo put right today, and I cannot believe what an incredible job she did! She understood straight away what I wanted in the long run and how I can get there, and blended my rubbish layers into something a million times better! All the staff I met were lovely and so helpful and friendly, I will most definitely be coming back and won't think of going anywhere else, you have a customer for life and I have already told people about the salon after receiving compliments already! Thank you so so much I could not be happier!!"

"Hi there.I just wanted to take a moment to give you some feedback on my wonderful hairdresser Jo. Jo is always a ray of sunshine - cheerful and bubbly. And I LOVE my hair! I asked a for something different this month and Jo has mixed up my highlights, given me exactly what I wanted and totally nailed my style. She rocks! A big thank you to Stuart Holmes generally too - I came in with my little boy because he was feeling a bit under the weather, everyone was so kind to him and accommodating to us both. Thank you to Jo's assistant and the lovely ladies on reception. Best Wishes"

"Good Morning. Yesterday I received a text asking if I was happy with my cut and colour last week. I would like to say I was more than happy! Jade did a really great job of the colour (for the second time) and Jo G did a fabulous cut (for the fifth time). Both of them listened to what I wanted, were very helpful in making suggestions and very professional.Thank you very much Jo G and Jade!"

"Hi there. I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the wedding hair yesterday. Everyone was really happy - the girls loved their plaits and my sis LOVED her blow dry. But best of all was my side bun - it stayed in all day and all evening despite some fairly wild drunken dancing! Please say a huge thank you to everyone but especially Jo who did an amazing job with thick, heavy, layered hair! Thank you".

"I recently moved to Gloucestershire from New York where I had been with the same salon and stylist for over 20 years so I was quite nervous about finding a new salon. I tried a few in Cirencester but was quite disappointed with the level of service and the skill. I picked Stuart Holmes based on their views and the location in Cheltenham. From the moment I walked in the door I felt at home. The reception desk is very helpful and Jo the Stylist was quite solicitous. She asked me all sorts of questions about how I care for my hair and what kind of cut I was looking for. She gave me a wonderful scalp massage during the shampoo and got me a lovely cup of coffee before cutting my hair. She did exactly as I asked which was to replicate the cut had. But as a result I know I could trust her to suggest other ideas. She also alerted me to attend the Cheltenham Literary Festival - which I have just done. At the end of my visit I felt that my initial reaction had been family: I had found a new home for my hair".

"I came in earlier today to see the lovely Jo, who, as always did a great colour and an exceptional cut. As I always tell Jo, I often get complimented on my hair and asked who my hairdresser is. Today beat all records. Within 10 minutes of leaving the salon I was complimented by a complete stranger! I thank you all for a fab service but mostly to Jo who enables me to really enjoy my hair and gives me the ego the size of a house!"
