Hi my name is Paul Chandler. I’m a qualified hairstylist and beauty therapist of over 30 years. I started my career in Farnborough, Hampshire. After completing my apprenticeship I moved to Byfleet, Surrey where I worked for a salon for seven years. In that time I was manager of the salon for 5 years.
In 1990 at the age of 26, I went into a partnership, opening Paul Martins in East Molesey, Surrey. Sadly the partnership dissolved seven years later.
Twelve years later, I changed the name to Chandlers Artistry In Hair and the business underwent a complete rebranding. I then after 20 years decided to sell the business and work from home.
During my career I have had the privilege of being the Hair Stylist to:
- Sir Cliff Richard.
- Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues.
- Rick Parfitt of Status Quo.
- Hazel Dean. Singer.
- Nicki French. Singer.
- Caprice. Model and Business woman.
- Jimmy Tarbuck. Comedian.
Plus many other celebrities over the years as I have worked on many celebrity Charity shows in the West End, and still maintain a celebrity clientele base.
I have also worked in Rome on a hair show.
In 1998 I won Surrey Hairstylist of the year
In 1994 I won the National Hairdressers’ Federations award for Best kept head of hair in Britain.
I decided to return to college in 2010 to become a qualified beauty therapist. I attended Isis Beauty Academy in Walton on Thames (now Omni Academy Of Beauty, http://www.omniacademyofbeauty.co.uk/walton-thames/). Here, I achieved my qualifications in level II and level III Beauty therapy, also getting my qualifications for male Intimate waxing, Indian head massage, Swedish Massage, Hot Stones and Aromatherapy.
Then in October 2015, I moved to Burnham-On-Crouch to be with my partner and here I soon found a shop. This shop, now called Chandlers Hair & Beauty underwent a major refurbishment, opening its doors for business on 22 March 2016.
I am very fortunate that a lot of my clients from Surrey still travel to me to get their hair done. I also have clients that come from all over the UK, as well as the United States of America, Australia, Germany and Monaco.
