5 minutes with pro hair training

Profile – Diane Griffiths, Owner of Pro Hair Training Academy


There are so many amazing people who are insured with Salon Gold and we wanted to speak to those that have experienced incredible journeys and give you an insight into their lives.  This week we speak with Diane Griffiths, owner of Pro Hair Training Academy.


Diane Griffiths, 53, a hairdresser and owner of Pro Hair Training Academy. She lives in Southport with her husband who currently works away and her 2 children. Diane has been hairdressing since the age of 17 but took time out to take care of her 2 children before slowly returning to work.

My typical day at Pro Hair Training Academy…

My usual day at the moment consists of lots and lots of paperwork as I’m trying to launch myself as a company as well as starting my very own hair care range.  A marketing company has just let me down so I am in the process of doing it all over again.

I trained to be a hairdresser by…

I attended as many courses as I possibly could to try and get into the work I do now. This included hair training courses in hair extensions, barbering, make-up, hair loss, basic trichology and even Level 3 in Education and Training.

The best/worst parts of my job are…

As well as doing my paperwork I do tend to see my clients on a daily basis. The best part of my day is seeing how I can improve someone’s confidence and self-esteem with my work. The worst part of my day is when people think that I have no life!

In my down time I like to…

I like to go to the gym on most days to keep myself fit and healthy. I also love walking my dog but for most of the time I do try to see my husband.

My plan B is…

At the moment I’m trying to launch my own hair care range for extensions so my Plan B would be to provide this and hopefully one day be stocked in Boots and Superdrug.

Hey I’m looking to get Micro Loop Hair Extentions and I need to know how much it’d cost.

Hi there Jess!

In response to your question, the cost of Micro Loop Hair Extensions varies quite a bit from salon to salon. The best we can advise is that you contact your local salon directly and they should be able to tell you exactly what the cost will be.
