It was over six years ago that Jay said she wanted a career change and asked us if we would train her to be a hairdresser. At the time she was a singer and dancer for an award-winning holiday resort!
She put all the discipline of her dancing career and outgoing personality into her new career and has never looked back!
Describing herself as friendly, positive and energetic, Jay couldn't pick just one favourite service, so her top three are curly blow dry’s, balayage and graduated bobs.
Jay says she likes to make people feel more confident when they leave the salon.
You will still find Jay performing in musicals across The Bay.

Alex gets a lot of her inspiration from celebrity hairdressers and social media.
If she had to take one product to a desert island she wouldn’t be without Moroccanoil. She describes herself as 'chunky but funky'!
