Paul Knights started his career at Vidal Sassoon where he gained inspiration and direction from some of the biggest names in our industry, in 1999 he opened his salon in Leeds where for the past 16 years he has been able to deliver his unique brand of service and education.
One of his proudest achievements is working with the Peter Gray team at London fashion week which has taken him around the world doing numerous hair/fashion shows such as working for designers such as Paul Smith, Vivienne Westwood and Jasper Conran.

His commitment to education is of great personal significance and he is proud to be recently appointed as the northern Aveda educator and more recently has worked teaching hair courses at the Estee Lauder academy in London.
