Brighouse hairdresser Gary Taylor, from Edward & Co, has come a long way since he first opened his salon doors in the early 90s.
The ambassador to Clynol salon exclusive is now turning his concerns to matters closer to home as he joins the Hairdressing Council in its campaign to get all hairdressers to become state registered. His concern is for the safety of the public in Brighouse.
“As hairdressers we handle a lot of strong chemicals and our clients put their trust in us to safely use these on their hair and scalp. There are certain protocols and procedures that need to be adhered to so to ensure that we are not putting people at risk of infection, allergic reaction or even worse.
“I decided to join the Hairdressing Council so that I can make sure that all of these are adhered to in my salon and make sure that I am providing the very best and safest service in Brighouse that I can.
“All too often you hear stories about people having allergic reactions to chemicals used in salons and I want to lead by example to other salons in the area.
“This is something that I feel very strongly about as I am a Yorkshire man at heart who loves his home town.”
To demonstrate his devotion to safety and the accountability of hairdressers, Gary decided that it was time to take a stand and join the Hairdressing Council in its campaign to get the law passed for all hairdressers to be state registered in the UK.
