Elite first opened its doors at 30 high street, Shirehampton,Bristol, BS11 0DL in August 2004. Our aim was to bring a stylish up beat salon to the village.
The building was a massive project with time being of the essence to totally refurbish the property inside and out, the building went from derelict to elite hair and beauty in five months.
Lorraine has been hairdressing now for 33 years and is a qualified Assessor in the trade, Lorraine regularly attends training courses as do the team, the salon has picked up several excellence awards in 2008, 2009 and 2010. Training is at the forefront of the business and is really paying off. Elite hair and beauty was nominated for 2 awards with the City of Bristol College and has won apprentice of the year in 2012 for nail services. Lorraine was honoured to be presented with the award by Bush and Troy (the breakfast crew) on the awards evening at Aston Gate stadium.
Elite hair and beauty ran a 10 week training session in 2009 with students from oasis academy the winner was signed up for a 2 year apprenticeship with Elite and won a pair of professional hair straighteners. Elite hair and beauty has worked with students from Gateway school to give some of the pupils an in site to the hairdressing and beauty trade and profession.
Every year in February Lorraine takes time out of the salon to help Reflection academy to Judge the students on their creative work, I very much in joy helping with the competition work as I was in the students position many years ago, I want to give something back to the hairdressing community .
