Meet the Team
Meet the team at Unique Hair Salon, a warm and friendly salon situated in a small town in the Kent countryside.
My name is Nicki Slaney, the owner of Unique. I’m an experienced and successful colourist and all-round stylist. I’ve been in the hairdressing industry for 17 years, having trained at The Hammersmith and West London College and have gained NVQ level 2 and 3 in Hairdressing.
After graduation I worked in various salons across London including High Street Kensington, Mayfair, Finchley and Wimbledon. I moved to Kent where I took over Unique after working here for two years. I have now been running this successful salon for over eleven years.
I keep up-to-date with the latest hair trends and like to bring a little of London’s magic to the countryside. I also enjoy training my staff to the highest standards, I’m very proud of them and they all contribute to the fun and friendly ambience at Unique
Charlotte has been working for us for 6 years and is one of two senior stylists at Unique. She is a very hard working and talented hairdresser with over twelve years experience, having qualified to level NVQ 2 at Dartford College.
She previously developed her skills for seven years at a salon in Belvedere, and has now worked up to the position of senior stylist at Unique.
Charlotte has now built up a large number of loyal clients and knows exactly what it takes to keep the salon running smoothly, often covering for Nicki during holidays.
Amy joined us in February 2017 as a senior stylist after working in the industry for ten years. She is trained to NVQ Level 2 and 3. She started with an apprenticeship in Harlow, then moved on after six years to work in a popular celebrity salon in Brentwood.
After marrying and moving to Kent she worked freelance for a couple of years and has now decided to return to working in a salon as she enjoys the atmosphere and working with a wide range of clients. She especially enjoys doing hair ups.

She has become a key member of our team and continues to grow in to a successful stylist.
