With over 25 years experience in hairdressing,with city & guild and advanced city & guild, colour keys and advanced colour keys.  Well I won't bore you with all my credentials " I took over The Big Yin 03 seven years ago building a great team offering everything you desire for all your hair a beauty needs. Hairdressing is not just a job for me it's a lifestyle, I was born into hairdressing and barbering with my dad (Adam Sloan ) being The Big Yin. So for a great hair or beauty experience with a friendly family atmosphere, please come and let us create a new u at my lovely seafront salon."

Gemma Westgate

I started with the big yin 5 years ago, from work experience at school, to volunteering every Thursday until I started my apprenticeship. I am now a fully qualified level 2 barber and level 3 hairdresser, I now also manager the salon. I have since completed my L’Oreal colour keyes and colour change course. I am very passionate about exploring new colouring techniques, and take great care and pride in my work, always striving to grow as a hairdresser. I focus and push myself so much to ensure all of my colour and cuts are to the best of my ability. I love learning from my colleagues and am excited about the future of hairdressing!
