In the first of 4 posts, we are going to give you the chance to get to know the team here at “The Cutting & Colour Room” hair salon in Bradford. This week we catch up with owner of the salon Chris Webster.
Where are you from Chris?
I’m originally from Bradford and proud Yorkshire man.
Who gave you your first break in the hair industry ?
I was actually in trained with “Steiner’s” in Bradford, which as you all know has since been long gone from the city centre.
So after Steiner’s, where did you go next ?
I actually ended up in London, working for Vidal Sassoon, before going out to America to run a large hair dressing academy, I then returned after a few years to the U.K after being recruited to work for Harrods as their hair and beauty director, then over the years I broke away and set up on my own where I had salons across West Yorkshire in Saltaire,Horsforth and Otley.
So does it feel good to come back to your roots now?
Yes, after everything I’ve now come full circle and back in Bradford with a new salon and have recruited some of the finest young talented people from across the region to work, things have changed here in the city so much, but I’m looking forward to showing my home city what we have to offer!
