Alistair’s earliest ambition was to be a hairdresser. As a child he was fascinated by salon life and the skill and artistry of the hairdressers he observed. Having trained and worked in Stirling, Scotland, Alistair went on to open his own salon at 19. After 12 successful years and feeling the need for new challenges and experiences (and sunshine!) he moved to Cyprus to be retrained by Toni&Guy.
Rising to the position of Art Director as well as managing the Toni&Guy Limassol salon and teaching in their Academy, Alistair also styled hair for photo shoots for Cosmopolitan, bridal magazines & fashion shows. 6 years later and striving for more creativity and ever more challenges, he opened his own highly successful salon, built on good reputation with a warm and intimate “feel at home” vibe, enhanced by client recommendation and trust.
After 12 years in Cyprus and with a strong passion to further develop his skills and experience new adventures in a more challenging setting, Alistair decided it was time to move on.
Having visited Hong Kong in 2013, it was obvious that this was the hub of hair, fashion, art and architectural inspiration, and he wanted to be a part of it. The energy and environment of Hong Kong is like that of no other. Alistair’s search for the best salon in Hong Kong brought him to Paul Gerrard and his fantastic team.
Alistair loves the transformative nature of hairdressing and the positivity it reflects on his clients. He is a perfectionist, with a great eye for detail. Extremely patient, a careful listener and driven by the transformative effects of great hair, Alistair is in his element working with people and building relationships with clients who entrust him with the big occasions in their lives.
Alistair is available for all cutting, colouring and styling services.
