Gemma – Senior Stylist

Gemma began training as a hair stylist in 2006 at Charlie Taylor’s in Bridge of Allan and joined Lumia in 2009. Gemma is now one of our most senior members of staff and is involved in the training of junior members. Gemma qualified as an assessor in November 2016 to teach junior staff members in SVQ level 2 and level 3 and that is an area of her job she loves. Gemma enjoys working as part of a team and boosting team moral with training days focusing on different techniques.

She has broadened her creative skills by attending advanced colour and cutting courses at the Rainbow Room Academy, Advanced Gents barbering course and has also been on a hair up course driven towards bridal hair. From this Gemma has developed a love of dressing hair for weddings and special occasions whether it be an up-do, curls or a glamorous curly blow dry. While she really enjoys this area of hairdressing, she also enjoys cutting and colouring especially creating textured hair cuts with scissors then finishing them off with her favourite OSiS styling products – Powder Cloud or Coal Putty.

Gemma considers the client consultation before the styling takes place to be essential in understanding exactly what the client desires. She really enjoys doing colour corrections and restyles that make a real difference to peoples lives. She finds this a very rewarding part of her job.

Gemma loves to hang out with the team outside of work and sees everyone as friends for life and not just work friends!
