Craig Duncan Hair is the culmination of a long held vision by Owner and Director Craig Simpson to have his name above the door, since diving headfirst into the world of hairdressing as a Modern Apprentice over 12 years ago.
From the start, he wanted to weave his own fresh, and on-trend hair magic for all people which would be unrivalled in the area.
His journey to St John Street navigated stringent training regimes with top salons in Perth and Edinburgh. Further to cutting and colouring, his talent would be brought to bear through photo shoots, trend anticipation, colour correction and online engagement.
This was encompassed within an ethos of continual development and competitiveness leading to awards with the Scottish Hair and Beauty Awards (SHABA), National Hair Federation (NHF) and the world renowned L’Oreal Colour Trophy.
Craig Duncan Hair was formed in April 2018 upon becoming self-employed. Craig worked to build up a clientele whilst furthering his sought after skill set with Hair Extension education.
The Salon opened in June 2019 bringing an experience which would be totally in tune with 21st century ecological concerns. This represented a first in the area.
By bringing nature in, Craig, together with stylists Ashley McKechnie and Emma Hutchison, would work ethically by being passionate about their environmental responsibilities whilst welcoming clients of all identities and backgrounds.
The story of Craig Duncan Hair is continually evolving. At present, Trainee Stylist Rhianna Lindridge is fast progressing, ensuring the Salon’s high-end experience is maintained.
