Top stylist joins Shrewsbury salon

A Shropshire salon has recruited one of the region’s leading stylists.

Gary Smith has become the 20th member of the team at Toni & Guy in Castle Street, Shrewsbury.

A former manager at Toni & Guy in Telford, Gary has also worked at a Midlands training academy teaching young hairdressers.

“We are delighted to have Gary on board, he is one of the area’s most experienced and talented creative stylists and is passionate about training,” said Gavin Pulham, owner of Toni & Guy in Shrewsbury.

“He has NVQ qualifications at levels two and three as well as being an NVQ assessor and has passed the very intense Toni & Guy cutting and colouring courses and has taken part in a range of competitions. We are very enthusiastic about training here and so it is a real coup to recruit Gary as our 20th member of staff.”

Gary commented: “I am really pleased to be here in Shrewsbury. They seem like a fantastic team at the salon and have made me very welcome.

“Everyone works to very high professional standard but there is also a warm, friendly and buzzing atmosphere which people appreciate.”
