Cheynes People: Paul








Over the coming months we will be featuring YOUR hairdresser here on our new 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, When i was a  slightly cocky young hairdresser at our South Bridge Salon, i remember spinning my scissors, ‘gunslinger style’  to try and impress a very attractive lady who i had in the chair, only to slice down the length of my nose in the process. To make matters worse i proceeded to tell her that all the blood over my face was due to me suffering from, wait for it…. nose bleeds! I still get a red face when I think about it now!


Q, Tell us a secret about yourself.

A, Way, way,  back in the day, i achieved my 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon-Do, hence the answer to the career question earlier.


A few people have been in touch asking for advice on where to study Tae Kwon-Do in Edinburgh, i would wholeheartedly recommend The United Kingdom Taekwon-Do Council (UKTC)

The President is Grand Master Peter Harkess, he is a 9th Degree Black Belt’ and was my instructor way back then and i’m proud to call him a friend all these years on.
