Who’s Who

Donna

I started working at Elaine Stewart's in 1994. I know what you're thinking;  I don't look old enough !! ( ha ! ha !)

I love working for Elaine and Kay as much as I did when I started as a young trainee. I have been given many opportunities working at Elaine Stewarts with continuous training in a strong and thriving industry. 

You always enjoy doing things you're good at. My speciality is dressing hair, may it be for a wedding, formal occasion or a girly night out, I'm the perosn to see!  Dressing hair to create a temporary new image really gives me a buzz. Being a Balmain Hair Extension Technician allows me to really create and expand on this ever growing market. We all want to look and feel good and using these fabulous extensions I can achieve instant transformations which can be temporary or that will last as long as you like.

Wedding hair, here in the salon, at home or your venue is something that we offer at Elaine Stewarts. Being involved on such a special day is a wonderful thing and very rewarding. We will provide a full service that can cater for you, your family and your friends.

I am a Redken specialist. Cut and condition are so important. Using the right products enables you to give internal and long lasting nourishment to the hair and scalp. This will give your hair amazing shine and movement that everyone will envy. So book in with me for a free consultation and you'll leave with ideas and more on how we're going to create a style/lifestyle for you.

Hello my name is Lorraine Rigby and I have had the pleasure of working at Elaine Stewart’s since 1999.  What fun it has been as well ! I have been hairdressing for over 20 years and can honestly say that I love the job more today than the first day I started.

My job is varied, as each client is an individual. I love listening to the wants and needs of each client . However I will always give my honest and experienced opinion. I enjoy all aspects of the job, but mostly aspire to being creative with cutting and colouring ( and no that doesn’t mean scissor happy ). It just keeps each day interesting.

I am also passionately involved in the 'My New Hair' side of the business, working with people with medical hair loss. Trevor Sorbie is the ambassador and we have all had the pleasure of meeting him here at the salon. An inspirational person!! Please read about this on the seperate page.  

I enjoy doing photographic and show work and have worked on 'The clothes show' which was a brilliant experience. 

At the salon, we have a fab team and work in a great atmosphere ( believe me I've worked in a few salons). We all get on so well and are like one big happy family. I am a friendly, honest, chatty and bubbly person and look forward to meeting you all soon.

Thanks for taking time to check out our web site. It would be great to see you in person.

From being a little girl I’ve always wanted to be a hairdresser. I started hairdressing straight from school.  I have worked at Elaine Stewart's since 2005 and have been hairdressing since 2003.

I enjoy all aspects of the job. I love working on different styles and learning new techniques. If pushed to decide I must admit that I enjoy colouring hair the most, each is equally as important. I did the colour on Kay's male model in the Redken hair competition. Being part of that winning team has really given me a taste for competition and I'm looking forward to entering more. 

We are a close team and all support eachother with whatever we are doing. Everyday is different and there will always be new styles and techniques to learn keeping the industry alive.

Attending hair shows, creating our own shows, photographic and competition work makes the salon an amazing place to work and grow. Being in this environment enables us to continually grow and for me personally as a stylist, it makes me more and more determined to be the best I can be. We are lucky to have a wide range of clients and personalities coming through our door on a daily basis ,and this for me keeps my imagination flowing with ideas. I love the fashion industry that we are in and the ever changing styles we are fortunate to create and be involved in. Here at the salon we hold workshops to keep on growing our skills. This allows our creative juices to flow freely and really expand our minds. So come along for a free consultation and I will create something new and exciting for you.

Hello, I have been a practising Beauty Therapist for over 20 years. During that time I have worked and managed busy spas all over the North West. I moved to Bermuda in 2001 to work in  a city spa . Over the years that I was there I built up a large client base of locals and ex-pats, with ongoing training in new therapies throughout.

I've been involved in teaching beauty therapy to students and personally updating and refreshing my knowledge in the field.

It was my responsibility to establish the Beauty Rooms here at Elaine Stewart's and was my reason for returning home to the North West.

Building the Beauty Therapy side of the business, working with Elaine and the girls as a team, continues to be immense fun and very rewarding to me. Sincebecoming part of the team I've introduced  many new aspects of beauty therapy. I am an advanced skincare specialist and working with Dermalogica enables me to gain amazing and lasting results with any skin conditions that I am presented with.

Over the years beauty treatments have progressed rapidly, I have always aimed to keep up with and evaluate these new trends . As a result of this offer diamond tip microdermabrasion which can treat even the most sensitive of skins, semi permanent make up offering the perfect brow, shellac nails, the latest trend for natural nails.

I am also a strong believer in an holistic approach to beauty therapy and treating from within. I offer and enjoy giving Reiki treatments to heal and enhance my clients wellbeing. 

Please take some time to look at all the treatments available, ranging from waxing to Reiki, for both men and women. I look forward to meeting you soon here at Elaine Stewart's.

 Hi, I'm Emma. I have worked at Elaine Stewart Hair & Beauty since 2009. I can honestly say I love my job. I enjoy every part of hairdressing, from washing hair, blow drying to cutting and colouring, I am currently advancing my cutting skills by doing creative cutting work shops, I want to take my techniques to the next level and in this job you are always learning. I enjoy doing photographic work, we are always challenging ourselves to do more and to achieve the best. The photoshoots we do give us opportunity to be imaginative and are great for team spirit as we get to bounce ideas around and think out of the box. I like to socialise with friends but am also a homebird and love snuggles on the couch with my little boy. If I were to make over any celebrity it would be Rihanna, I admire her strong yet feminine image and ever changing styles. I like a challenge, so if you're in need of a fresh, new style and some new ideas come to me!! Look forward to seeing you soon.

Hi, I'm Kay Stewart - Cooney. I have been hairdressing since 1998 . Although as Elaine is my mum you can say that I''ve grown up involved in this fantastic industry, it's definitely in the blood. Along with my mum, Elaine, I am proud to be a director of  Elaine Stewart Hair and Beauty.

I am outgoing, fun loving and the responsible one in the team. I organise our team building activities and make sure everyone enjoys them. I am loyal, caring and always there to listen whenever a friend needs a confidant. I try to use my head but usually my heart takes over, especially where family and friends are concerned. I put 100% into whatever I do and I am proud and extremely privaleged to have a wonderful family and career that I really love.

Hairdressing is a passion for me and to bring confidence to my clients through a hair cut is a fantastic feeling. The transformation a hairstyle can bring is second to none. It can completely change your image and make you feel like a new you!

Here at the salon we have a great team of dedicated professionals. We are a family unit and work together to ensure every part of your experience with us is special.

I am inspired by Vidal Sassoon but also by 'Elaine Stewart' my mum and my colleagues. Each and every day brings something different which ensures the motivation behind what we do. We bounce off eachother, constantly building ideas, doing photographic work and allowing the creative juices to flow.

Hair fashion and music are one and the same. I love the eclectic style of Gwen Stephani and the fantastic designs of Vivienne Westwood. If I could cut anyones hair it would be Coco Chanel I would use the opportunity to ask her she came up with her designs. She is a true inspiration to women in the fashion industry, i love her quote - " In order to be irreplacable one must always be different". So true!

I reached the final at the Redken NYC awards 2010 in the male category, working along side leading international stylists such as Andrew Barton. This experience gave me a taste of success and encouraged me to always strive to do the best that I can.

My guilty pleasure are clothes, I like to have my own style and this carries through to everything I do.
