Over the coming months we will be featuring YOUR hairdresser here on our blog.
We are very proud of the fact that some of our team have been with us for a long long time, many having spent almost all their working life here at Cheynes.
As every client of every hairdresser knows, the relationship you share is built on a foundation of trust and professionalism. That first meeting with a new stylist or technician is a tentative moment when first impressions count for everything. Gradually, over a period of time you and your chosen stylist develop a relationship that evolves and grows.
So whilst you both get to know lots of information about each other that adds to the personal experience you receive, there are always things that you maybe don’t know about your stylist.
So keep checking in to find out about your very own Cheynes hairdresser.

Q, Do you have a funny Cheynes story to share?
A, Every year at our annual conference, long standing members of the team are awarded for their time with the company. 5 years ago I was celebrating 20 years with Cheynes, and coincidentally I was 40 on the day of the conference. I was invited on stage to receive my ‘long service award’ only to find myself, 5 minutes later, wrapped up in cling film by a male ‘go-go’ dancer. I was a horrified, but, at the end of the day, it was one of those moments that makes being part of Cheynes so special.
