Salon Spotlight: Gold Class x Nicola Smyth

Recognised as one of the best hairdresser’s in the Midlands, Nicola Smyth is the owner of her very own prestigious, award-winning salons in Leamington Spa, Warwick, Kenilworth and most recently opened her 4th salon in Knowle.


At just 32-years-of-age, the ambitious salon-owner, award-winning colourist and educator already has a hairdressing career spanning 18 years under her belt. Nicola began working in a local salon when she was just 14 and quickly realised it was the career for her. By the time she was 17, she was already recognised in the community and had gained a flock of loyal clients. She went on to scoop Apprentice of the Year at the Mid Warwickshire Business Awards shortly after.

Marrying her passion for business and her creative flair for inspiring colours and hair design, Nicola went on to develop her career working in an array of leading salons before launching her own salon in 2012.

With almost two decades in the industry and last year wining her biggest title to date “Midlands Hairdresser of the Year” at the British Hairdressing 2018 Awards. Nicola has a reputation as one of the most talented hairdressers in the country. Extremely passionate and hard-working, Nicola always seeks to find and offer her loyal clientele the latest and very best trends, cuts, colours and extensions. And we are honoured that Nicola has chosen to only use Gold Class extensions across all her salons.


Having worked with the KMS California UK team, styled a variety of fashion and editorial shoots, Nicola has an exceptional eye for detail and quality and explains that this is why she has chosen to partner with us and use Gold Class extensions for the last 5 years.

As a colour specialist, Nicola understands that adding extensions to hair with colour damage and ensuring that the coloured extensions match the hair is a very difficult job. In addition to finding extensions that are good enough to perfect the colour, any good hairdresser has to be cautious to not add more damage or breakage when applying extensions to treated hair. Following years of using our extensions and seeing premium hair quality and minimum breakage, Nicola explained to us that this was another reason she has chosen to only use Gold Class extensions in her salon.

“Nicola has worked backstage with us on some of our LFW and MFW shows in the past and most recently joined myself and the Inanch London team Front Row Pro in May. Using our renowned Gold Class extensions for the Girl Power Gold Class Hair Master Class. It was a great success and received high praise from the audience made up of our fellow professionals.

We had an incredible time and it was great to join forces with Nicola once again” commented Inanch Emir.

We are very proud of the success of our Gold Class extensions and of the relationships we have built with talented hairdressers like Nicola, who choose to use our extensions to give their respected clients the most natural, luxurious extensions they can.
