My Story

With over 19 years of hairdressing experience, Gemma prides herself on providing up-to-date styles and colouring techniques delivered in her very own salon, Patrick Ryan. Her passion for hairdressing was influenced by her life-long dream to cut hair, and now, located in Dunchurch, Warwickshire, Gemma has successfully grown her salon which is named after her beautiful son.

In a short time, Gemma has turned her salon into a popular venue for locals where she proudly works with a leading hair product brand, Goldwell, the top-rated line of colour products available exclusively to hair stylist professionals. In addition to her other accolades, and as a prestigious hairdresser, Gemma was deservedly awarded the 2005 Stylist of the Year by Essensuals.

With an honest and sensitive approach to hairdressing, each client is dealt with on an individual basis. Her skills in hair-up, cutting and colouring mean that booking in advance is advised if you would like Gemma to work magic on your mane.

Hairstyling is a skilled job, and with each client after a different look, Gemma will ease you in by taking the time to talk you through the cut, colour and texture changes you want. She is more than happy to discuss your needs for both the lifestyle you embrace and the look you desire; she places an undoubtedly high level of value when it comes to listening to you, her client, taking the time to understand your needs and respect your hair.

From the minute you enter Patrick Ryan, you will be greeted with a smile and invited to enjoy a coffee, tea or glass of bubbles, while you sit back and enjoy a high-class service in a relaxing environment. Once you are happy and confident with your modern new hairstyle, your experience in the Patrick Ryan salon is complete…Until next time.
