Pat, Tina, Sue, Rebecca & Beccie
Excellence comes as standard at Total Look. All our hair stylists and colour technicians are rigorously trained and have developed a thorough knowledge of hair and scalp conditions, precision cutting, expert colouring and creative styling.
These high standards have been achieved under the direction, vision and individual mentoring of salon director and owner Pat Gammon.
Pat's ability to interpret the latest style trends together with her technical cutting skills have gained her a reputation that has clients returning to her time and time again. Confident, caring and fun to be with, Pat's warm personality endears her to both her clients and staff alike.
Through her bespoke in-salon training programme Pat has taught her team not just the importance of creativity, technique and product knowledge, but also to take time to listen to you and truly understand who you really are, before you leave the salon with your own beautiful total look.
Pat Director & Owner
Pat's career as a hair stylist has been her life-long driving force, her hobby, her profession and her passion. It's a bit of a cliche to say that Pat is a consummate professional but she truly is just that - a professional in her art and her business. She has style and flair, superb technical skill and she's an inspirational teacher.
Pat loves the romantic and sophisticated glamour of styling long hair. That said, her short cuts are exceptional - on trend, perfectly cut and easy to manage.
Pat personally chooses every product she uses in the salon and if you ask her to recommend her favourite she'll want to know first of all what your hair needs. She'll also tell you what not to use... for goodness sake don't mention henna!
Tina Turner "...and a trip to Switzerland where she lives please!"
Tina Director & Senior Stylist

Without doubt Tina's favourite hair style is a classic, sleek, chin-length bob.
The award-winning Philip Kingsley shampoos for relieving flaking scalps and providing luscious gloss.
The beautiful Duchess of Cambridge is Tina's dream client. "I would love to see Kate's hair beautifully layered and cut a bit shorter to give more fluid movement to her gorgeous hair. Some subtle caramel highlights would look really on-trend for her sophisticated formal occasions."
Sue Senior Colour & Cutting Technician
Sue trained at Total Look when she was sixteen years old and worked her way up to become a valued senior stylist. After marriage and having a family Sue returned to the salon in 2007.. Sue's specialist area covers all aspects of hairdressing including colour and cutting.
Sue loves the asymmetric styles popular in the 80's (when Sue was an apprentice hairdresser) these elegant, sleek cuts and are now making a much awaited come-back.
Moroccan Oil is Sue's go-to hair product. "Without it my hair would be a lot less shiny and manageable" She is also loves the innovative In-Salon Fusion Treatment and home-care range. "It truly works on damaged hair like no other product I've seen".

Beccie's favourite style is a wavy 'lob' - that's a long bob if you weren't sure!
If Beccie could only be allowed one product it would be Moroccan Oil for anti-frizz and super gloss. If she could have more then it would be the entire Sassoon Professional range.
Kelly Osborne would be delighted to learn that she is Beccie's dream client because in Beccie's own words - "She's adventurous, fun-loving and likes to be different".

Pat Reception & Salon Assistant
Our super salon assistant and receptionist is often known as 'the other Pat' although she usually describes herself as the salon's 'Girl Friday'. Pat loves her job at Total Look and when she's not busy meeting and greeting clients she turns her hand to shampooing, coffee-making and sorting out the salon laundry (and a host of other jobs). Her background in the hotel industry and customer liaison management makes Pat a highly valued member of the Total Look team.
Pat absolutely loves the Phillip Kingsley hairbrush.
"It gives my hair a wonderfully smooth, shiny finish and together with the Philip Kingsley Prep Perfecting Spray and the Elasticizer from the same range my hair behaves perfectly!"
