Senior Stylist

Jayne

Jayne has been working in the Hairdressing industry for 30 years gaining a wealth of knowledge and experience. Jayne has owned her own 2 floor salon in Hazel Grove and has also attended Lancaster University gaining a Degree in Education which then led onto the delivery of level 1,2,3 hairdressing skills to students with both Skills Solutions and then onto The Manchester College where she managed the Hair & Beauty Department.

Jayne had over 6 stylists operating over 2 floors trading successfully for over 8 years before moving into the field of training.

Having worked in the development of new stylists Jayne has always had to keep up to date with all the latest trends in both cutting and colouring and we are so pleased to be able to offer her unique skills and experience to our clients of The Leading Edge in Great Moor.

Gino

Style Director

Gino

We are pleased to announce that Gino Tuzzolino will be joining our team in Great Moor, Stockport.

Gino brings a wealth of experience with him, having successfully operated several successful family salons for over four decades training and developing his teams along the way where many now have their own hair and beauty salons.

Gino learnt his skills in our fashion capital, London at the much-acclaimed Vidal Sassoon. It was here where his Italian influences came to the fore gaining him enviable recognition amongst his peers for his cutting work.

After working in London Gino then moved up North working in Macclesfield, Stockport and Stalybridge building a strong client base and sharing his skills and techniques with many students over the years. Looking for a new stylist? Then we guarantee that you will not be disappointed with his sharp, clean geometric cutting skills.

Abigail

Stylist

Abigail

Hi everyone, Abigail here.

I have been in the hairdressing industry for over 9 years now. Starting at just 14, I took a 2 day release from school to go to college and learn the trade as a GCSE. I then went on to complete my apprenticeship with The Leading Edge and qualified at 18.

I am constantly looking for new challenges and wanting to learn new techniques. I will continue training on different courses to develop my skills further. This way I can keep up with new techniques and keep you lovely ladies up to date with the new trends.

Hairdressing is my passion, I will help you achieve your hair goals and give you the best advice possible on keeping your hair healthy. I look forward to meeting you in the salon soon.

Maxine

Nail Technician

Maxine

Maxine Hill from "Maxines Salon" on Hall Street in Stockport has joined us at The Leading Edge to provide you with all your nail services. Maxine is fully trained in all aspects of Beauty but decided some time ago to focus on nail services as this was the area she liked best and loves working with the Bio Sculpture Gelbrand.

Maxine has been in the Beauty business for over 7 years and during the time she had her own salon she built the business up and had 4 girls working for her covering nails, waxing, threading, eye lashes and spray tans.

Monika

In loving Memory

Monika

It is with great sadness and a heavy heart to tell you all that our beloved Monika Nos passed away in the early hours on Saturday 6th October 2018. As you all know Monika was a big part of The Leading Edge team. Monika originally worked at the Hyde salon and most recently started at our Great Moor salon, so we know that all of her lovely clients will feel the same pain and sadness that we do. Our thoughts are now with Shak, her family and friends as they go through this very sorrowful time. More information on Monika’s passing will be posted on our website in due course.

We thank you all for your kind thoughts and prayers.

The Leading Edge team.
