Karen McLeod - Owner

Hi, my name is Karen. I am the owner of Headstart Hairdressing in Exeter.  I have been hairdressing for over twenty-four years. I am as enthusiastic about hairdressing today as I was on my first day.  I gained my City & Guilds Qualification and have been working at Headstart Hairdressing ever since. I have attended many cutting, colouring and ‘hair up’ courses here in Exeter and also in London.  I am very lucky to work with a friendly enthusiastic and professional team, who are always keen to meet new clients.

Tracy - Stylist

Hi, my name is Tracy. I have been working at Headstart Hairdressing for over thirty years. I have gained advanced qualifications throughout my hairdressing career by attending various courses on cutting and colouring hair. I really enjoy working with a great team who are extremely enthusiastic. Furthermore, I enjoy meeting new clients.

Jeannette – Stylist

Hello, my name is Jeannette and I have worked at Headstart Hairdressing for the past twenty-nine years, (and very happy ones they have been too!) I cover all aspects of Hairdressing and love seeing my regular clients as well as meeting new ones. Hairdressing has always been my passion and I knew from a very early age that this is all I ever wanted to and started my full apprenticeship at fifteen years of age. My many years of hairdressing experience range from working in some of the most prestigious salons in Exeter including workshops with Cyril Galley and Charles Worthington. Here at Headstart Hairdressing I absolutely adore being part of such a professional and friendly team. I am lucky having had the privilege of working with hundreds of truly amazing people and still enjoy it very much to this day.

I gained my City & Guilds qualification and I have gone onto various cutting and colouring courses which I have really enjoyed. I also instruct the trainees on our training evenings, which I enjoy, seeing them learn new techniques. I have a lovely clientele whom I enjoy seeing regularly but also look forward to meeting new clients.
