Ali is the owner of Studio No.4.

“I have been hairdressing for 13 years. I started at a salon in Didsbury called AJM Hairdressing. I was there for 9 years and loved every minute of it.

I always wanted to setup my own salon and after meeting my amazing boyfriend Rick in 2014 he gave me the confidence boost that I needed to do this. So after lots of back and forth I set up a tiny salon on the 8 July 2016.

It was amazing after 18 months I was so busy that I expanded and created Studio No.4….Best decision I ever made. Now I have an amazing team and a huge clientele. I’m very lucky.

I have a crazy cockapoo puppy who all my clients hear me moan about. I have a wonderful family and friendship group who support so much. I’m always being called boring by the girls in the salon because I have one drink and I’m drunk I’m a huge lightweight who can’t deal with hangovers!”


Brogan is a senior stylist at Studio No.4.

“I’ve been hairdressing for 12 years now. I always knew that I wanted to be a hairdresser from when I was young. I would cut my dolls hair and had to hide them under my bed so I wouldn’t get in trouble with my mum!

I’m fully qualified with my NVQ level 1, 2 and 3 and my barbering NVQ Level 2. I n the salon we are always taking courses on the next upcoming trends such as balayage and cutting. I’ve also done Beautyworks course in tape and weave extensions.

I love all aspects of hairdressing from a blow dry to a balayage. The best thing for me is when someone comes in and has just given up on their hair and I transform them with tips and advice on how to do it at home. The next time they see me they me how much I’ve changed their views on it and that they now love their hair.

The best thing at Studio No.4 is that we are one big happy family and when we all get involved, help each other out and just have the best time. If I’m not doing hair I’m normally spending time with my friends and family or st with a glass of wine sometimes even with my clients!”


Yasmin is a stylist at Studio No.4

“Level 2/3 qualified. I’m qualified in fitting nano bonds, micro bonds and weaves. I am a hairstylist with 5 years experience. I trained at Terence Paul.

For over two years I have been specialising in Nano bonds. My favourite thing about doing hair extensions is the before and after results, adding extra length, thickness and volume to my clients hair. Especially to damaged or fine hair and the confidence it gives them when walking out of the salon.

I have always loved colouring from ashy blondes to sunkissed balayages. In the future I would like to specialise in all aspects of colouring as this is something I have a passion for.”


Amy is a junior stylist at Studio No.4.

“My favourite things about Studio No.4 are how well we all get along and the atmosphere in the salon.

My fave thing is definitely getting models in for colours especially highlights. I would like to specialise in colour in the future.

My hobbies are spending time with my family and friends. I’m a pro at having a lie in and eating snacks!”
