Meet The Team
Salon Owner - Theresa Holt
Theresa our salon owner started her career as a fresh faced 14 year old Saturday assistant back in 1988 in the highly acclaimed Antonious hair salon. After 4 years there she moved on to progress her career in a different direction concentrating mainly on growing her colour knowledge as that was a passion of hers. By the age of 40 Theresa decided it was time to giver her heart and soul to her own salon and the ideas for Saffron hair were written in note books all over her home until they all came together in May 2015 when we opened the doors to Saffron hair. Since then the salon has won numerous gold and bronze awards in the industry including Theresa winning ‘Kent stylist of the year’ 2 consecutive years running! This year we look forward to the chance to win a few more to adorn our wall.
Salon manageress -
Beccy is our Salon manager with 17 years salon experience. realising from an early age that hairdressing was her passion she started working in a long standing Folkestone salon at the age of 13, going on to complete her apprenticeship there. After working a couple of years on the salon floor she decided to combine her love of hairdressing and travel by working for the prestige ‘steiner leisure’ on board ‘carnival cruise lines’. this allowed her to see the world whilst growing hair knowledge working with varied hair types e.g African-Caribbean hair. Once back on dry land beccy continued hairdressing in a few salons varying from hythe to fenwick Canterbury before joining us in 2017. In the salon, as well as running an extremely busy column she is our ‘in salon trainer’ educating our young apprentices on our trade and coaching them throughout their learning.
