About the employer

"Established early 2013 and now in its fifth year of business we have strived to create a space that represents our hair artists as individuals. The hair workshop is built on a pre tense that the RCNQ team are a family and all the clients that enter the workshop are our extended family.

We want you to feel completely relaxed within our workshop and we like to break down as many barriers that have been in place for years within hair salons. One of the ways we do this is to introduce all our artists on 'the team' page. Here you can view each stylists blog to find out more personal information about each artist."
