Founder/Boss Lady Haze
Colour and extensions specialist
Hey! I’m Haze Mac, I established Blueberry bangs in 2016 and up to this point I had worked in so many places who’s values and ethos were completely opposite to mine. Businesses without any soul that didn’t care about their clients and team… I needed to break away and set a new standard in creativity and experience.
A happy environment for my clients with second to none service with their needs at the heart of it all. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t take this leap overnight. After juggling my hairdressing with lots of education, gaining a certificate in teaching and an assessor’s award and also gaining a degree in hair and makeup media, not to mention bringing up two boys, I finally gained the confidence to get out there on my own! From the first moment I had the idea of my own salon I knew what my vision was …. The team, the products and the experience.
Colour/hair extensions specialist
So growing up with 6 older brothers in Sheffield wasn’t going to be a walk in the park, but in between the arguing, play fighting and countless broken bones I always found time to help my mum out when she was creating styles for the local ladies in our kitchen. I guess that was when I started to get interested in the hair industry. Seeing her being creative and interacting with her clients was so satisfying and I knew I wanted to make people feel good about themselves just like my mum did.
The day I left school I went straight to my local village salon and started working as an apprentice. I’ve always been eager to learn so I watched the stylists every move and learnt the basics of female styling. I’d research styles at home and practice these whilst training. When my confidence grew I went to work in a city salon so I could learn more about modern styling and gentlemen’s barbering.
So, after 5 years of hard graft and perfecting my trade in the Steel City it was time for a change. Looking through Instagram I came across a new, interesting and creative salon called Blueberry bangs in Manchester – and they were looking for stylists. I sent my CV off straight away, and well the rest is history! Haze has been an amazing mentor and nurtured my talents and creative eye. She’s given me opportunity after opportunity and I have learnt so much about colouring I’m now a colour specialist. The clientele here at Blueberry Bangs are amazing and I’m thoroughly enjoying making the girls and guys of Manchester look and feel their best.
