The son of Wally Gould an ex Brighton & Hove Albion player, football had always been a passion and after being signed for Stoke City’s under 18s, Shaun’s career path seemed to be mapped out. With a twist of fate and a move to the South, Shaun was forced to look at other careers and began his training for a large Brighton salon group.
A move to Worthing saw Shaun join a town centre salon group and soon became the stylist in demand. It wasn’t long before he was asked to become a business partner and his passionate dedication in styling resulted in him being invited to join the Fellowship of hairdressers in 1992,being of only 500 salons accepted in the country.
Shaun’s work within the Fellowship saw him develop his skills with hair shows at Salon international@ Excel, Hammersmith Palais and the Wella studios in London.. With work on the Clothes Show Live and Prima magazine show at Wembley Shaun was fast becoming a name in the British hairdressing world.
Top L’Oreal ambassador Guy Kremer noticed his flair and became Shaun’s mentor enabling him to develop his hair photographic work. The Hairdressers Journal, Hair Flair, Hair and famed French style magazine Sop have all featured Shaun’s beautiful work.
With his eye for detail and colour Shaun has been a L’Oreal Colour Trophy finalist no less than 11 times and also been nominated for Southern hairdresser of the year.
In 1998 with a bursting clientele and busy fellowship engagements Shaun decided it was time to open his first salon. With his wife Julie for support Shaun Slater Gould opened its doors in Ann Street Worthing and continued very successfully there for 11 years. It has always his dream to own a prestigious freehold salon in the town centre and now with his fabulous grade 11 listed 4-storey hair and beauty spa now open, Shaun’s dream has finally come to fruition.
