helen gerrardI have been part of the hairdressing business for 20 years and I have loved every minute of it, I started my apprenticeship in 1996, and it was always my ambition to own my own my salon.
After I completed my apprenticeship in 1999 I became co-owner of Trevor Mitchell International in North Baddesley, then in 2005 I became sole shareholder. In January 2014 I re-branded the business under the new name of ‘Chez Gerrard Hair and Beauty’. I also gave the salon a complete makeover turning into the modern boutique salon it is today.
I enjoy entering competitions as I am a very competitive person and like to challenge myself against other stylists.
My future goals are to complete advanced courses in both beauty and hair and to continue to grow our current salons and eventually have a salon in London.
I love trying out new styles and making my clients feel special when they leave the salon.

Helen also takes great pride in her in house training with her employees, she believes in developing her staff in many ways , apprentiships, College Nvq, photoshoots and competitions will help her staff to be one of the best in the Region. And she will be there all the step of the way to assess them and pass them in their qualifications.
