Maya is our talented Creative Stylist. She‘s been in the industry ever since she left school and and in the past 10 years has worked her way through a host of qualifications, recently passing her HNC with the highest grade available! In her time with L’Oreal, Maya achieved distinction as a Colour Specialist. Now at McGills, she‘s our colour guru and is someone we all turn to when we’ve got a question because of her knowledge and experience and friendly, helpful manner.

“My hairdressing style is about caring for the individual and listening to what they want. I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing, I like to colour and put hair up. It‘s great working with others and meeting people. No two days are the same so it’s never boring!”
