We often get asked why we decided to start Glide Hair Tools and how we manage to work together as a husband and wife team. With both of us beginning our apprenticeships as hairdressers in our late teens this is an industry that we know and love. We started Glide 15 years ago now because we saw a need for a specialised company that was based solely on hairdressing tools. With our prior experience we had knowledge on the market and wanted to help salons by creating the best possible products they could use on their clients.
Since then we have continued to grow our business and the products that we offer, which is another reason why we love this job so much! The industry is constantly changing and it can be so exciting and challenging at the same time to continue to learn and grow and adapt to changes. This was really evident at the start of the year when covid-19 hit, which forced us to learn and grow quicker then we ever have before. We were so proud when we were able to offer hand sanitiser in a period of just three weeks and it has been so rewarding to be able to help salons through this tough time.
We can’t wait to see where we will end up in the future and what we will come up with next! To learn more about how we started Glide and tips for your business make sure to check our Instagram and Facebook page! @glidehairtools
