A Cut Above - Rod Smith Hairdressing
After weeks of waiting we are excited to reveal the winner of our #LetItRain salon display competition. Salons all across the UK showed off their creative prowess, but there could be only one victor... Congratulations to Rod Smith Hairdressing in Falkirk.
We caught up the salon owner Gill (wife to Rod Smith) to find out more about their super stylish salon…
1. When was Rod Smith hairdressing founded?
Our salon has been open since September 2013. Rod had been in hairdressing since he was 15, and I worked in a chemist so it was a big step for us to finally open the salon, but we haven’t looked back!
2. What makes Rod Smith Hairdressing great?
It is important to us that our team and clients enjoy a happy and friendly atmosphere in the salon. We think this is vital for our passionate team to create hairstyles suited for each individual. Our consultations are crucial – we want our clients to step out of our salon proud and confident and loving their hair! Our motto is ‘love your hair’.
3. Have you been involved in any national hairdressing awards?
For the last two years we have qualified for the L’Oreal Colour Trophy - Ladies and Gents Image Awards for Scotland. It was a great motivation for the team to produce creative and on trend looks.
4. What inspired your #LetitRain display?
We think the Cloud Nine packaging is very Chanel inspired, so we took inspiration from this. The classic black and white with a hint of teal has a real Chanel feel and this is what we wanted to represent in our display.
5. How long have you been working with Cloud Nine? What do you love about the tools?
We have used Cloud Nine products since the day we opened. We chose Cloud Nine because we wanted to use premium, luxurious tools that are kind to the hair and give a modern yet classic look that can be created in the salon and at home.
