I established The Chair in 2003, with the vision of creating a warm and welcoming salon that also has a strong artistic edge. I have a passion for the industry and am enthusiastic about furthering the profile of the salon and my staff. Thirteen years on, I still enjoy working in the salon with the rest of my team and love having a catch up with my extremely loyal clientele.

Assistant Director

Chantelle

Assistant Director

Hi, I’m Chantelle, one of the things I love the most is how much a good hair pampering can change not only how you feel, but how you perceive your surroundings. I start with a good consultation. Individuality is what separates us from the crowd, so finding a true fit with cut, colour and extensions is my passion. I consider hair my art form and I enjoy keeping up to date on trends and new techniques. I’ve been in the industry for seven years, in that time I have completed a NVQ level 2, advance 3 and a specialist in Easilocks extensions.

I want every person that sits in my chair to feel relaxed, have trust and enjoy their visit to The Chair. I want your hair to be healthy and be you, after care is one of my specialties so I will always let you know what to use and steps to recreate your look.

Rosie

Beauty Manager

Hi, let me introduce myself, I am Rosie your new Beauty Salon Manager.

I have been in the beauty industry for 5 years. It’s something I’ve been passionate about from a young age. I studied beauty at school and was fortunate to follow this with an apprenticeship. In 2016 I was a finalist in the apprentice category of the Kent Excellence in Business Awards.

Since then I have worked full-time in a variety of beauty establishments, most notably the Champneys resort at Eastwell Manor. I have attended several training programmes and have gained extensive and knowledgeable experience.

I enjoy all aspects of beauty, ranging from relaxing massages and facials to help clients de-stress and unwind, to waxing, nail, lash and brow treatments, ensuring each and every one of my clients walk away feeling beautiful in their own way and truly pampered, making my job extremely rewarding.
