Salon Owner

I started my training in Toni&Guy in Ireland, I worked there for 7 years. While training i took part in many competitions within the salon and also in Dublin. I qualified in both cutting and colour but specialised in cutting in the salon for just over 2 years as a stylist. After leaving Ireland in 2012 moved to Leeds where I began working with Nicky Clarke. I enjoyed a year with the company as a stylist before leaving with plans to open up my own salon. I successfully opened up Emerald Hair&Beauty in the August of 2013. The salon has now been open 3 years and i have built up a good team of hairdressers and beauticians and hopefully, will it continue to grow.

Hair Stylists

Started at Nicky Clarke as an assistant and worked there for just under 5 years, where I competed all my training in both cutting and coloring. I worked my way up through the salon and was involved in many of the hair competitions with finals held in London. I then worked at another top rated salon ( according to Wahanda 2014/15 ) in Leeds city center, prodominanlty working on Colour correction and Colour changes. I joined the lovely team at Emerald Hair & Beauty in the summer of 2015 as a technical stylist. You can also find me and my work on both Facebook and Instagram, both under: Hair By Katie B.


Hair Stylist

I have been a fully qualified hair stylist for 6 years now. I started my hairdressing career in 2011 when i began work at a busy salon in Adel. and worked my way from the bottom to the top, before leaving to work in a different salon to build by clientele and reputation. I am now working for myself at Emerald. I specialise in ombre/balayage and like to keep up to date with the latest colour techniques. I enjoy doing hairs ups, and generally changing someone’s look. I regularly update my social media to keep clients updated on my work.


Beauty Therapist

I’ve been working in the beauty industry for nearly 20 years, originally from France but made my home and work life in England. I’ve studied many different relaxing and distressing Massage techniques, as well as been an expert in waxing. It’s my pleasure to make clients feel relaxed and happy during their treatment time with me. I can also offer many different hand and feet treatments including gels for both nails. I also take time out to study and learn new things so I can offer my clients a wider range of treatments including Lvl lashes. I have recently just started a Facebook and Instagram where I have photos of my work, you can find me under the name of beauty by Flore
