Welcome to our BEAutiful World
Hi, welcome to Paul Watts Hairdressing
This Is My Story
After his university course failed to live up to his expectations, Paul made a complete career change to fulfil his creativity and decided to attend night school at Tresham college where he completed his NVQ in hairdressing. Paul loved hairdressing and loved learning, attending many courses and undertaking online education to hone and develop his skills. Once he had found his direction, he was unstoppable, initially working from home and then as a manager of a local salon.
Paul's passion for colour, backed up by his technical ability made him the go to stylist in the salon for colour. he is ambitious and when the opportunity arose he bought the salon he was working in and the Paul Watts Salon Group was born.
Paul has opened 6 salons over an 8 year period, which saw 4 operating at once and relocate 2 of them to much bigger premisses. This was down to the demand from clients wanting to visit the salons, but with the size, Paul and the team were unable to fit everyone in.
The model changed from 4 small boutique salons to 2 big salons in the heart of Kettering and Oundle. This has been a complete game changer to the PWH group giving Paul much more time to develop his team and work more internationally, while keeping the quality of work at its highest.
Paul looks at colour in a very unique way, taking inspiration from the make up industry, nature, and art to name a few, transitioning their techniques and colours into hair. Paul loves to create bespoke colour, with a lot of freehand colour melting and blending to suit the salons clients lifestyle.
Paul has won numerous awards in the industry from local community awards, UK and international awards boosting his profile in the industry. One of his biggest achievements was holding the National Hairdressing Federation colourist of the year award from 2012 to 2015 with the awards no longer running.
