Read about Kate... Hide about Kate...
Kate started an apprenticeship in 2004 at the age of 16 at a local hair salon, whilst also travelling an 80 mile round trip to study at Strode College once a week.
In 2009 after 5 years in the hair industry around the Somerset area, Kate had the opportunity to open her own salon "Tranquillity Hair". After 8 weeks of long hours and hard work, all the decorating, designing and most importantly shopping paid off! On the 9th June 2009 the salon was unveiled. The salon has grown from strength to strength with Kate being the backbone, supporting her ever-growing team, of which she is very proud. Molding young hair dressing students into brilliant and creative stylists, to create a successful team around her.
Kate prides herself in being able to adapt to each and every individual's needs, from a classic bob to short and edgy haircuts. She used this to her full advantage when working within a team and Mark Woolley for an L'Oreal catwalk event.
Recently Kate has also enjoyed studying her business diploma with Helen Ward and is now putting it all to practice with Jess her business partner.

Read about Jess... Hide about Jess...
Jess met Kate in 2004, when she started as a Saturday girl also at the local hair salon. She continued her learning there until leaving in 2009 to join Kate in the opening of Tranquillity Hair.
Jess has played a big role in making Tranquillity Hair a successful business and in September 2012 became a partner in the business.
Jess is our in house training provider, offering her skills, knowledge and dedication to all the junior stylists. As well as this, Jess runs a successful column, her passion lying in creative colouring. Between January and April 2014 Jess spent one day a week in London at the L'Oreal academy studying her L'Oreal Colour Specialist Degree. She loved every minute of the course even though it took over her life for 4 months as she put every ounce of effort into the course passing with a massive 96%. We are very lucky to have her in our salon, as there are only a few colour specialists in the whole of the southwest.

Tilly joined our team in Tranquillity in July 2015. She studied at Strode College as a full time student straight after school. She has always wanted to be a hairdresser but sadly when she finished her course she couldn't find a job in a salon. Tilly had no other option but to get a job to earn some money and she started work in Clarks village. In June 2015 we decided that we needed another stylist, we intreviewed Tilly and decided she was the girl for the job! Tilly had some intense training when she first joined to bring her up to scratch with how we work at Tranquillity. She has recently been promoted to Stylist in October 2016 and is really glad to be finally living her dream. Since joining us she has successfully built up a busy column and is blossoming into a fantastic young hairdresser.Back to top
