Suzanne Wilson

Proprietor/Senior Stylist

I have enjoyed my experience in this fabulous industry for over 30 years and am highly qualified in the craft. During these years I have worked as a lecturer for various training providers and colleges, delivering hairdressing and barbering courses to NVQ level 1, 2 & 3 delegates. I have also worked as a Craft Educator for the brand Matrix alongside working in salons.
I decided in August 2013 to take the plunge and open my first salon within the Blackwell Grange Hotel in Darlington. In the first two years the business grew way beyond my expectations and the salon become too small to enable any further growth. I made the decision to move the business to bigger premises and found this fantastic salon in Billingham to which I have carried out a full refurbishment and installed hired a highly skilled team.
I am a State Registered stylist offering all aspects of hairdressing services and training in a friendly but professional environment. With the extensive knowledge that I have gained during my career I pride myself on offering a high quality and value for money service. I am pleased to have this recognised in 2017 by the British Hair & Beauty Awards.


Toni Curwen

Senior Stylist

I can honestly say that “I love my job!!” I began my training with Saks Academy and I have served my time so far at a number of award winning salons including running my own successful business for 5 years. However after getting married and moving to a new area, my business was no longer a viable venture for me.
After taking several months off, enjoying travelling and being a newlywed, I was really looking forward to being back behind the chair! I choose to join the team at Suzanne Wilson Hair & Beauty as I love all the training that is offered within the job role. I was thrilled to be awarded a bronze status for Stylist of the Year North East in 2017 by the British Hair & Beauty Awards.
What I love the most about being a stylist is creating new looks and restyles, especially how it makes people feel to walk out of the salon feeling like a million dollars!

I hold NVQ level 3 qualifications in hairdressing and barbering which I achieved through Saks Academy. In addition to this I hold a level 2 beauty qualification. I am extremely creative and I love to make you all feel amazing when you leave the salon. I specialise in glamorous pin ups, creative cutting and colouring, and male grooming. I am very ambitious and love learning something new so I embrace all the training that we receive at Suzanne Wilson Hair. I can constantly strive for perfection with every client visit whether old or new.
