salon owner

My Story


My name is Amy-Louise Trevor. I'm an advanced hair stylist and salon owner; with many years of experience within the hair and beauty industry.

 For many years I have dreamt of being self employed-owning a salon and helping others to achieve.

The dream wasn't to have just any old salon. It was a salon that is a safe space, a form of comfort, friendships and somewhere that I could facilitate helping others grow and develop a successful business of their own!

Over the years I have gained numerous qualifications: Hairdressing level 3, colour correction, hair extensions, team leading, business development, customer service, coaching & mentoring - and I'm still growing my skills in a profession I adore, not only to develop myself in the industry but also to help my growing team.



THE WHEN AND THE HOW

October 2018 was when I decided that enough was enough - no more playing small and leading a life less than I desired.  A single mum of two children working part-time in a salon and travelling - doing mobile hair to make ends meet - I made the scary and exciting decision to become self-employed by renting a chair within a beauty boutique - Adore You.

I chased my dreams, turning them into reality. I entered the world of self-employment, organically gaining and reaching out to existing clients in only three days before opening! 
I'd made the leap, now the work really started - and a year and a half later I would take over the building and create my own salon business. It was the birth of AurA Hair and Beauty! 


THE WHAT

Without sounding cliche I hope, AurA is so much bigger than a business. 
I'm proud to have created a welcoming space for people to come and have their hair styled, offering a friendly ear (and the occasional prosecco) in the process.

THE WHO

Our team is growing, individuals becoming independent and growing their successful businesses within an establishment that encourages confidence,  individuality and self-empowerment.


We are quite an exciting and diverse team:

Our young stylist Ella is proving to be an amazing stylist,

Sarah is Aura's first employed hairstylist and is an advanced, award-winning professional who is literally amazing at blonde hair work!

Lizzie, a self-employed MUA, nail technician and beautician. 
So! We've recently expanded the salon, we're introducing new products and services, keeping up-to-date with the latest trends and guidelines, along with Bridal hair and make-up creating individual styles for our Brides and her guests. All go!
