Saturday 30th April 2016 hosts #HairstyleAppreciationDay. In aid of this we felt it would be a good way to promote careers in the Hairdressing industry and have worked closely with Grace Bowman and her team at Boutique Hair Spa in Largs to showcase this.

Boutique Hair Spa is a salon that is a one stop shop offering a variety of services and treatments to their clients. The salon offers a vast amount of services including every aspect of hairdressing, nails and make-up with clients being offered a complimentary drink including a glass of fizz!

When entering the salon we were greeted by several staff members who were incredibly friendly and made our time there that much more enjoyable. Firstly, we interviewed 19 year old Modern Apprentice Erin Harvey who is currently undertaking her Level 2 Modern Apprenticeship in Hairdressing.

Erin’s passion for her job was clear to see as she informed us that she is keen to further her hairdressing career and hopes to be a senior stylist within Boutique Hair Spa in the near future. When asked what her advice would be to other young people who may be considering a career in hairdressing, her response was training in a salon gives you invaluable knowledge and experience and she would definitely recommend this as a career choice! Erin’s full interview can be viewed below…

After interviewing Erin, next up was Grace Bowman, owner of Boutique Hair Spa. We were keen to find out Grace’s views on recruiting young people and why she loves her career in hairdressing so much.

Grace informed us that she always encourages people in business to recruit young people as not only is it financially a good decision but you can train them to develop the skills and qualities needed within your own specific business and industry. Many of Grace’s employees fall within the 16-24 age bracket so it is clear to see that Grace is highly committed to giving young people a chance in the world of work through giving them employment within her business. You can see our full interview with Grace below…

After our interviews had took place we were keen to see the talent of young Modern Apprentice Erin as she carried out a ‘bouncy blow-dry’ on one of her clients, the end result was amazing! See below:


It is clear to see that Erin will have a bright future ahead of her as a stylist within the Hairdressing industry and with employer Grace being so involved with recruiting young people I’m sure she wont be the last talented Modern Apprentice to be working within Boutique Hair Spa!

We would like to thank all the team at Boutique Hair Spa and especially Grace & Erin for taking part in the lead up to #HairstyleAppreciationDay.
