Kerry began her career at the age of 16, training under the late Willy Rosedale, from whom she acquired a strong understanding of salon fundamentals based on his extensive experience in the art of hairdressing.
Having trained in precision cutting and extensive colour work, at the Vidal Sassoon Academy, as well as with Wella and L’ANZA, Kerry really enjoys the creative aspects of hairdressing and she feels her ongoing training keeps her skills current and perspective fresh - two things that in turn benefit her clientele and staff.
She is constantly focused on developing new ideas and growing Purdey, with a clear passion for music and fashion evident in her work within the salon, for both male and female clients.
Paul has over twenty years experience in the hairdressing industry.
He was part of the original team, alongside Kerry and Damian, to establish Purdey.
Over the years he has attended workshops and seminars with some of the country’s most influential hairdressers, from Brian Drum, whom in the 80’s introduced his take on the fifties flat top, to Irvine & Rita Rusk famed for their under cuts, texturising and disconnection haircuts that are now seeing a huge come back.
Paul’s early career was greatly shaped by instrumental training from two times Scottish Hairdresser of the Year, Phillip Bell & Malcolm McNeil of Ishoka. Most recently Paul attended an advanced cutting course at Cheynes. Paul is keen to keep his skills fresh and up to date.
His ability to produce creative and classic cuts has earned him an extremely valued loyal client list.
