Rainbow Room International Celebrates Its 40th Anniversary

Wednesday, 29 May 2019 14:27

Alan and Linda Stewart founded Rainbow Room International in 1979 and the business has grown to become Scotland’s largest hairdressing group, going from strength to strength over the years and winning a plethora of awards and accolades.

In 1979, the first Rainbow Room International salon opened in Buchanan Street, and now there are twelve salons throughout Glasgow, Ayr, Clarkston, Stirling, East Kilbride, Uddingston and Bearsden. The salons are all organically franchised, with many of the franchisees and Salon Directors being with Rainbow Room International since the very start, starting as apprentices and growing to own their own salons and managing their own teams. Some now franchise more than one Rainbow Room International salon, truly showing the group's family bond and the Salon Directors long-term commitment to the brand. In 1983 The Rainbow Room International Academy opened, a very revolutionary concept, based on Alan and Linda’s philosophy to allow their team to continually improve, develop and progress in the company, and to be able to provide training courses and apprenticeship schemes to stylists and students from throughout the UK. The 7,500 sq ft Academy is now the forefront of today’s most advanced development programme. As well as being a centre of education for the Rainbow Room International team, the Academy is open to all hairdressers and attracts many hairdressing professionals from the UK and overseas, looking to learn new skills and perfect existing ones. 

The group have also put many programmes into place, including: an induction programme, structured training programme and fast track training programme, along with client feedback, financial, and monitoring and appraisal systems. Rainbow Room international also provide a sold career structure with on-going staff training and management training and have a Fame Academy for young stylists, as well as an awards programme. 

40 years down, Rainbow Room International have shown not only their incredible success, but also their dedication and commitment to the industry and we can’t wait to see what’s next in store for the brand. Alan Stewart, Owner of Rainbow Room International with Linda Stewart, commented: "I feel extremely proud of hitting another milestone. In some ways it seems as if it was yesterday and gone in a flash, but as everyone knows it is down to learning, education, meticulous planning and re planning. It has been an incredible journey, which Linda and I are still enjoying. Our team of Directors and Creative Team push us harder than ever and we both appreciate that. We will continue to develop the brand with our amazing team and have fun doing what we have been doing every day."
