Alan Hunter

When did you begin your career as a stylist?  

Whilst at school I worked as an Assistant in House of Liberty on the Perth Road in Dundee. During that time, I was always watching the stylists with their guests what was going on. My love for hair was born from there!

I then started in Partners as a Trainee Apprentice (I carried my SVQ City and Guilds Level 2 whilst working in the salon in conjunction with Dundee College) – and the rest is history! 

What do you love about being a hairdresser?

I love learning new things every day. At Partners, our training is ongoing and we are pushed to be the best possible stylists we can be. I really enjoy spending time with my guests and giving them exceptional hairstyles.

Which celebrity hair would you like to get your hands on and why? What would you do to their hair?

I would love to barber Connor McGregor. I think his banter would be a great laugh!

Who or what inspires you to create fabulous hair?

I love to make people feel and look great. I love to create classic Hollywood waves using my ghd styler, along with big bouncy blowdries with my ghd air dyer – my guests always look great, and their hair is full of volume and movement. I’m always looking for inspiration on Social Media, especially on Instagram.

What is your ultimate ambition?

My ultimate aim is to open my own salon one day.

How would you describe yourself in three words?

Hyper, Fun and Outgoing
