SOM PARKASH - MASTER BARBER
CLARE HAMMERSLEY - MANAGERESS/STYLIST
I started working in the hairdressing industry 15 years ago, starting as a Saturday helper, going on to do an NVQ Apprenticeship, I have had a passion for hairdressing and working in a salon environment ever since my first day in a salon.
I’ve worked at Style Guru for just over 10 years now and love working with the team we have created but even more so, the amazing clients that we are blessed to have. The friendships we have with our clients is just like having a catch up with friends.
I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing, but it’s always exciting to have a client in the chair wanting a whole new look, whether it’s just a cut or colour. Seeing clients leave the salon feeling fantastic about themselves is always the best feeling we receive.

LIBBY FRANKLIN - APPRENTICE HAIRDRESSER
I'm currently studying and doing my GCSE’s at Longsands Academy while currently working at Style Guru.
I looking forward to joining the team in September where I will be able to spend more time at the salon, learning and practising techniques that are passed onto me from all of the team at Style Guru and Freestyle Unisex Hair Salon, which will then lead me onto our client’s hair.
I really look forward to being able to give the clients in both salons a great experience for which help them feel relaxed and satisfied.
STEPHANIE RYAN - HAIR STYLIST & BARBER
I have been working in the hairdressing industry for 7 years and I completed my NVQ Level 3 Qualification in Hairdressing at Peterborough Regional College. I have recently attended a Cut and Colour course at 'The Goldwell Academy' and completed full Academy Training at TIGI.
I have continued to improve my skill set by attending long hair workshops to enhance my hair cutting and styling techniques and I've also recently attended a Hair Extension course which helps me give our clients the best possible experience and service that everyone deserves. I have worked on my own column of clients for 4 years.
I can offer all aspects of hairdressing and barbering but I really enjoy the creative side as this allows me to release my creative flair upon the customers creating the unique hairstyle that you crave for.
SHANNON BRYANS - STYLIST & BEAUTICIAN
I have been working in the industry for 3 years now, making every client feel fabulous is my aim.
I have an NVQ in Hairdressing, which I achieved whilst doing an apprenticeship.
My favourite service to do is a cut and finish, creating shapes with the hair and doing the final touches, this personalises each client’s look to suit their style.
My other qualification is NVQ Level 3 in Beauty Therapy, having both hair and Beauty keeps my day really varied.
I have just joined the team and am looking forward to meeting new people, also building my client base here at Freestyle.
