Frank Michael from The Salon, Linwood shares his hair expertise
Frank Michael, owner of The Salon in Linwood, takes us inside his career…
How did you start?
I first started my training in Daly’s on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow before making my way to Fraser’s on Buchanan Street.
How long have you been a hair stylist and how have things changed over the years?
I have been a stylist for 44 years and things have definitely changed over the years. When I first started, perms were in and there wasn’t a lot of demand for colour. Now, it’s all colour and you only see a few perms.
What’s your most asked for celebrity look?
What’s your go-to product? And why?
Go to products would definitely be Schwarzkopf, they’re the best all round. On top of that, Olaplex is brilliant when it comes to repairing damaged hair.
One thing you’d advise all clients to do?
Always use a good shampoo and conditioner for coloured hair.
- Ingliston Country Club & Hotel – making luxury sustainable
- Subtopian Planning Board – ‘Outsiders Hymn’ review by Mya Brown
- The Gleniffer – the transformation of a Glenburn landmark
In terms of hair trends, what’s been your favourite during 2021?
Choppy cuts are great for those who want something a little less high maintenance. All you need to do is just add some texturising spray and it looks great.
What’s the best thing about owning a salon in Linwood?
I’ve been in Linwood for 41 years and I’ve got to know a lot of lovely clients in that time. In fact, I think of them more as friends.
