The Gary Rom experience has been developed over a career spanning more than 3 decades. Gary was first exposed to the hair industry when he joined L’Oréal as a sales consultant in 1984. Once he had won salesman of the year in 1985, he decided to pursue a career in hairdressing.
Gary went to London and Paris, and trained at some prestigious hair academies, namely Jingles, Sanrizz and Tony and Guy, to name a few. When Gary returned, he worked as a stylist with his step father, Kelly Manson.
After 2 years Gary decided to go on his own, and opened his first salon which he named Inter Hair Design, which he successfully ran for 3 years, before opening a second salon with the same name. During his ‘formative’ years, Gary studied the industry, and set about creating a salon experience that was based on all of the service touchpoints that other salons did not cater for. Gary Rom has become synonymous with incredible service delivery, unique points of difference and a client consultation approach that is the benchmark in the industry.
