Gary has been in the hairdressing industry for over 30 years, full training was undertaken under the guidance of Terence Ashley at the tender age of 15yrs.
From there has managed several salons until finally opening his first two separate salons in Royton.
However after four years it made sense to concentrate the business in one place, which is now the Thornham two storey salon on Rochdale Road.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank my loyal customers who have followed me throughout and also welcome new customers to come and visit my salon.” Gary – salon owner
My name is Nathan I started working at a salon in well known trendy salon in Chadderton 2004 desperate become a hairdresser. I started as a junior working Saturdays and after school whilst still doing a paperound to keep me active. By 17 I was already running my own column of clients. By 18 I had finished my level 2 in hairdressing and was now qualified. I decided to start my level 3 which back then was a higher qualification in hairdressing.
By 21 I had qualified level 3 and was asked by Micheal John training academy in Manchester (the college where I trained) to teach there one day a week, I took up their offer and taught students from all walks of life to become hairdressers. I taught for two years but decided this was too much alongside my salon duties. By 24 I had decided I wanted to open my own business so left the salon I had always known to pursue my dreams of becoming a business owner. 2015 I successfully opened a very busy and well known salon in wilmslow. After 4 years of doing this and travelling to and from wilmslow I realised I would rather stick close to my roots and sold my business to my business partner and moved on to Gary Peters (much closer to home) since that I have carried on growing my knowledge and business here at Gary Peters where I am very happy and at home 😊 I thoroughly enjoy balayage colours and fashion colours. But my true passion is a good old chin wag with down to earth clients.
These are a few shots from a park local to the salon.
