Having twice been crowned Hairdresser of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards, declared President of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing, and being the first British Hairdresser to win the AIPP Grand Trophy, there’s no doubting Andrew Collinge’s immense skills and creativity. He is one of the most revered and most loved leaders in the hairdressing industry today.
Andrew Collinge’s background is steeped in a rich heriage of hairdressing. His grandfather and father were both successful hairdressers so it was no surprise that Andrew would inherit their abilities, follow in their footsteps and join the family business. In the 1980’s along with his wife, make-up artist Liz Collinge, he joined ITV’s This Morning and they became known as the King and Queen of makeovers. Styling hair for royalty and celebrities, Andrew then went on to open a luxury makeover studio in the world famous store, Harrods.
There are now six Andrew Collinge salons and two graduate salons in the North West of England. Andrew Collinge Training has received an Ofsted Outstanding rating in their past three inspections and continues to produce top class hairdressers who have themselves gone on to achieve great things within the hairdressing industry.
In 2016, CO by Andrew Collinge was born as Andrew and Liz collaborated on a new brand. The pair used their experience to develop a range of nine styling products that deliver exactly what clients have asked for. The products work for both men and women and they have a distinctive, spicy fragrance which is androgynous. Products are available exclusively in the UK from all Andrew Collinge salons and online at www.andrewcollinge.com.
