John Paul has over 30 years global industry experience, beginning his career in Glasgow at the esteemed Harold Kramer salon. John Paul was an extremely passionate salon assistant, which led to him, after the completion of his apprenticeship, winning “best salon assistant”. This won him a Vidal Sassoon training course, which was then to set him up with the foundation skills that led to him becoming a top stylist within Glasgow’s leading salon group for 5 years.
Eager to get into business himself, at the young age of 24, John Paul joined forces with a colleague to open their own salon which they ran successfully for a further 18 years. John Paul developed a strong team and was responsible for all the salon education, whilst also managing the business and running a full column of clients.
The next chapter brought John Paul to Hong Kong, where his wife who is in the fashion business was offered a job here. They quickly decided it would be a fun adventure so he sold his business in Glasgow and moved to HK where he started working with Paul Gerrard for 8 years.
In 2014 John Paul and his wife moved back to Europe, but within 1 year, they really missed the offering of Hong Kong and John Paul especially missed working for Paul Gerrard. After hearing of the news, Paul Gerrard and Hong Kong of course opened its doors to John Paul who has returned to reside and work.
John Paul is an amazing all round stylist who has developed a strong clientele within the Hong Kong expat community. He is a precision haircutter who prides himself on producing tasteful and classic, wearable hair.
We are proud to have John Paul back at Paul Gerrard and look forward to an amazing new chapter working together.
