Neil – Salon Director

Neil Ainscough…

Hi I’m Neil, the owner of Northcotes Hair. I love my work and Salon and that’s why you still see me on the shop floor, styling customers hair and talking to all our customers.

I started work in Manchester City Centre with ‘Micheal Paul Hair’ and was trained at the top by the Salon Directors. Working at ‘Michael Paul Hair’ gave me a real insight and hunger to develop my styling and management skills, so that I could one day open my own Salon.
My highlight of working there was definitely getting my work featured in VOGUE Magazine.

I then bought my first salon in Bolton in 1989 but had a slight problem straight away… within a week all the staff had left; quite simply because they didn’t understand that to provide an exciting and vibrant Salon, everyone had to work hard and look after our clients with the best Customer Care.

After that slight hiccup we were back on track and we created a great team of motivated, stylish and dedicated staff that all wanted to learn and achieve the best they could.

Over the next 8 years we built up the reputation of the salon into one of the best in the area. It was then he saw a building up for sale in Chorley Town Centre and decided the time was right to create the Northcotes Hair Brand.

Northcotes Hair became a member of 3-6-5 a group of hairdresser dedicated to improve the standard of salons around the world and because of my passion for hair dressing and training, was asked to become a lecturer with them.
