Olivia Gallagher from Allerton, is launching a selection of hair colour tools that are guaranteed to generate expert results for hair colourists and those in training
Olivia Gallagher, a 29-year-old expert colour specialist, is launching a selection of hair colour tools after 10 successful years in business.
Having always known she wanted to be an accomplished hair colour specialist and stylist, Olivia left St Edward’s College at 16 to train with the renowned Liverpool-based salon Barbara Daley, and three years later she pledged to follow her dream and become a self-employed hair colour specialist.
Determined to broaden her knowledge and gain further experience in the hair industry, at 19 Olivia travelled to London for six weeks to undergo an intensive training course where she learned so much about hair colouring.
She said: “I’m a huge advocate for learning and 10 years later, I’m still attending a number of courses each year.”
Olivia worked hard to perfect her craft and build her clientele further, and in 2014 the opportunity arose to open her first salon on Smithdown Road and Olivia Gallagher Hairdressing was incorporated.
Olivia, from Allerton, continued study and in 2017, she graduated from the L’Oréal Academy as a hair colour specialist and since then, has gone on to secure partnerships and ambassadorship with some of the most prestigious brands in the hair and beauty industry around the world including L’Oréal pro and becoming an official L’Oréal partner salon, GHD Pro and Bellami, an American brand which just a handful of people work with in the North West. Olivia has also become a Bellami mentor.
Since opening her salon in 2014, Olivia worked tirelessly to create a brand that is built on quality, luxury and beautiful results, whilst also giving other hairdressers and beauty technicians a space to work from in her salon.
Olivia has also earned a reputation for colour transformation corrections and is regularly asked for advice and her opinion from other hair stylists.
During the pandemic, a further opportunity arose and she’s since opened her new flagship salon on Dovedale Road named Gallagher & Washington.
Olivia has used the pandemic to focus on developing her new product line and believes now is the time to diversify the Olivia Gallagher Hairdressing brand.
Olivia added: “After a decade in the industry and working to perfect my skills and knowledge, I feel so ready to launch my first line of hair tools to help other hair colourists and those who are in training with creating perfect results every time. As hair styles and trends change and adapt, my hair tools will be applicable to each and every process including highlights, full colours and more intricate requests like balayage.
“I really hope industry specialists love them as much as I do. After helping and advising so many colleagues within the industry, I’ve also decided to open a training academy to support other stylists and budding hairdressers which I’m currently working towards.”
Olivia Gallagher Hairdressing tools will be available to purchase via her Instagram page @oliviagallagherhairdressing initially, before Olivia launches a dedicated website.
