Operating as usual
Down memory lane....or when we walked down the aisle all these years ago.
Where do the years go?
Been great fun thinking back...what were we doing now.
This morning about 9.30 Anne recounted how she was heading into Glasgow at that time 50 years ago. What to do? Only to collect her dress! Talk about last minute or what?
Anyway she maintains she was perfectly cool, calm and knew it would fit her perfectly...which it did!
Golden Wedding celebration just got tastier. Thanks to Anne and Henry for special delivery of THE most tasty homebaked cheesecake and flowers. Brightening the day and the tastebuds!
It’s our Golden Wedding today...yes, an amazing 50 years since we said we do!
We shall raise a glass later to mark this special day ❤️👍❤️
The new photo was taken on Saturday night - a Golden Wedding is the perfect excuse for dressing up and having some bubbles in the garden with son Taylor and daughter-in-law Justine. 🍸👍
Hair today: another delivery of more GreatLengths extensions for our clients. Look forward to seeing them for their extensions appointment from April 5.
GOOD NEWS UPDATE: go ahead given for hair salons to open from
Monday April 5. Our team is taking appointments. We are looking forward to welcoming clients...

HAPPY 45TH TO THE SALON!
AS we mark the 45th anniversary of the opening of our Bath Street salon we’ve been looking back and have come up with 45 facts and insights you might not know about me, the salon and our hairdressing history.
On the first day of opening on March 10, 1976, we took in just over £9. We were a little concerned but we persevered and kept on building up the business.
Our salon has had six major makeover during the 45 years. Aside from structural and furniture updates we’ve also changed the paint colours and window displays.
I have a pair of scissors made from the same material as used in the construction of tiles on the Space Shuttle. They are made in Japan and are super-sharp.
Our salon was previously a surgical supplies store. It took us six months to fit out.
As a keen gardener I love nothing more than sitting on my mini tractor to cut the front garden.
In the garden there’s a statue of a Greek god – holding a hairdryer, naturally!
I use an inversion machine which turns me upside down. I hang in that position to help boost circulation and ease pressure from my back and legs. Standing day-long cutting hair can put strain on the body – ask any hairdresser!
My favourite dinner dish is Beef Wellington. Like it so much I used the recipe in a charity cook book organised by the late psychic astrologer Darlinda who was a dearly loved pal.
Confession time! En route for a client assignment in Monaco I arrived at the airport with my old passport and couldn’t board the plane. An assistant who was travelling with me went ahead and looked after the client.
In the 1980s we opened up in-hotel salons in the old Thistle and Holiday Inn hotels in Glasgow.
A few years ago we turned the salon into a makeshift dance studio for post-work and Sunday training sessions when I was taking part in a charity version of Strictly for the Prince and Princess of Wales hospice. With my fellow dancers, we raised more than £100,000. Dance coach/partner Maria did her very best!
My favourite holiday pastime is people watching over a coffee in a London street café. I can sit there for hours.
We’ve no less than three Taylor Fergusons in the family. Me, our son Taylor who’s an accountant and grandson Taylor who’s 12.
In the late 80s during international hair shows in New York Anne and I appeared on coast-to-coast breakfast TV shows talking about our hair creations.
I can happily graze all day. I love eating. Thanks thought to my ultra-fast metabolic rate I manage to maintain a lithe shape much to everyone’s amazement - and sometimes, envy!
The salon has played host to some live entertainment for clients including Billy Connolly with some story-telling and music man Darius who, complete with keyboard, sang some festive numbers. Lewis McLeod also entertained us with some impersonations.
For many years we were contracted to look after the haircare of presenters on the hit ITV quiz show Wheel of Fortune. Sometimes the presenters would come into the salon but normally we’d head for the studios to tend to the hair during the recordings.
For some of the big hair shows we took part in we created amazing hair sculptures – even one of a Charles Rennie Mackintosh chair!
I love to read crime novels. Current favourite author is Peter James.
Anne loves to read about Coco Chanel whose life fascinates her.
My favourite tipple is a glass of wine. I enjoy both red and white but would probably pick a white as preference.
Over the years the salon team has worked on many Miss Scotland campaigns and looked after the haircare needs of the title winners for the year of their reign.
I've given hair styling masterclasses in a number of local schools.
My favourite garden task is clearing up leaves. I can be gone for hours gathering them up with my super-sized gardening gloves which act like giant shovels.
My favourite after-shave is Creed. Anne’s perfume preferences are Chanel or Hermes.
I trained as a hairdresser in Paris for several years.
I met wife Anne when she was working as a salon assistant – known back then as a junior – in my mother Patricia’s salon in Coatbridge.
As a child I was destined to follow one of my parents into their respective businesses. I worked in both – dad ran a bakery business while mum had the hair salon. Hairdressing won me over - and the rest, as they say, is history.
During a hair show in London’s Albert Hall I was minutes away from taking to the stage when he realised I’d forgotten my ‘show suit’. It was jeans and T-shirt for the appearance – but we still wowed the audience!
Anne and I were proud recipients of the Lord Provost’s Gold Medals for business. We also received a Great Scots Award from the Sunday Mail. We were well chuffed.
Anne and I supported the Kilbryde Hospice by kitting out a hair salon for patients. Grandsons Taylor and Alexander helped us declare it open.
My mum Patricia died at the grand old age of 100 in 2018.
I used to be a keen golfer – indeed lifted many championship trophies and medals. Don't golf very often at all now though.
I still look after clients who have been coming to salon throughout the 45 years it’s been opened.
I've appeared several times on BBC Scotland’s Off the Ball with Tam Cowan and Stuart Cosgrove. Always makes me a little nervous!
Back in the 80s our family took part in one of the first-ever ‘reality’ shows – a fly on the wall documentary on STV which featured three Scottish families.
My proposal to Anne perhaps wouldn’t win the title of most romantic! Anne recalls: “He said - it’s always better to be sorry for something you’ve done rather for something you don’t do. Let’s get married!’
We honeymooned in Marbella which became a popular holiday haunt for us as a family when young Taylor came along.
My global travels promoting hairdressing and showcasing styles took me to places such as Barbados, New York, Paris, Amsterdam, Thailand, London and Hong Kong.
The salon houses its ‘wall of fame’ showcasing photos of celebritites and other big names who the team and I have cared for over the years.
While the salon has tallied up 45 years I've been cutting and styling hair for more than 50 years now.
When younger I was a total ginger head, proudly sporting flame-coloured hair.
I once described on a TV show that with all the secrets my clients entrusted me with I felt like a priest!
Anne and I flew on Concorde to attend a hair show in New York. Flying supersonic meant we had less time away from the Glasgow salon. The experience was ‘phenomenal’.
I'm often asked for words of advice to anyone pursuing a career in hairdressing and I say: “Don’t look back, look forward. Keep totally focused, be prepared to work long hours and listen to every word your client says when they’re discussing their hair aspirations.”
We hope you enjoyed this insight which gives a little snapshot or two of what’s been going on in the salon and our lives over the last 45 years.
45 YEARS OF SALON LOOKS! Thinking back to this day in 1976 and we were run ragged getting the new salon in Bath Street open for the first time. The clock was ticking. Less than 24 hours to go. But we made it. And we've had some different looks over the years - both on the inside and outside. The photo of the interior 'carnage' reminds us of one makeover we were doing over a long weekend. We'd popped in the day before we were due to reopen just to check on progress. We were greeted by the sight of the loos sitting in the middle of the floor!
But we got there...and were ready to welcome our clients back in.
IT'S A BIG WEEK...we mark the 45th anniversary of our salon opening on Wednesday. Our heartfelt thanks from us and the team go to each and every one of our loyal clients who crossed the threshold over these four and a half decades. We appreciate your support every single day.
We're a little sad we can't properly celebrate because of course we're closed due to the restrictions but we look forward to reopening asap when the green light is given and we can welcome clients back into 106 Bath Street.
Thanks from Taylor and Anne x
BIG MILESTONE IN THE PIPELINE!
Next week we mark the 45th anniversary of our Glasgow salon opening. I say mark as opposed to celebrate as any celebrations are on ice until lockdown eases.
This is a feature in new online mag from Business Women Scotland which interviews Anne - who is a regular columnist with them - about what it's like working alongside a life partner for 45 years!
Many of you out there may have seen more of your partner in the last year than you'd usually but how many of you work together as well? Hope you find the article interesting folks.
We'll be rolling out a series of posts marking our salon's special 1976-2021 milestone.
Earlier today I was speaking to presenter Winifred Robinson on BBC Radio 4's Your and Yours programme. Topic for today...how businesses faring in the lockdowns. Anne caught me on cam mid-flow during the chat.
Tammy doing another online colour course with our partners at Schwarzkopf. Helps pass the lockdown hours - and great increasing new technique knowledge ahead of our return to the salon!
Devastated not to get an actual date to work towards reopening. We had hoped for some hope...just a date...
According to FM it’s likely to be sometime at end of April...
All a bit too uncertain.....
Feels less of a roadmap - more of a mystery tour!
We just need to remain as positive as we can be...
Back in salon today for a live link with ITN News’ Scotland reporter Peter Smith - discussing the restriction easing plan announcement. Peter’s report appeared on the lunch news. Apparently our chat will appear on the teatime bulletin.
Team busy with online courses to keep ahead (no pun intended) on colour techniques and trends. Courtesy of the partnership with experts at Schwarzkopf.
Mags prepares for Day 2 of her courses.
Another sign of spring? Time to put away the leaf grabbers until autumn.
Normally I'd be reading the appointment book on a Saturday but today, for an hour or two, this book of choice gets my attention. Been reading books from this crime case author for the last 9 months or so. Gripping. Helps pass the lockdown hours!
Who or what are you reading to pass the time?
Big love to all...
Took Anne for her Covid-19 jag. All went very smoothly and she was well impressed by the team in action.
Anne for the Pfizer vaccine while I was given the Oxford one last week. Best of both worlds hopefully to deliver the outcome we're all praying for in the coming months...
SIGN of things to come...
The bollards have gone from Bath Street. Perhaps the first signs of seeing life being able to return to our great city.
Certainly makes for easier client parking outside the salon when we get the green light to reopen.
HOME after getting my Covid-19 jag done. Another step in the right direction and looking towards the day we can reopen the salon. DIdn't even feel the vaccination. Thanks to the NHS team for doing the needful!
HAIR MYTHS: what's right and what's wrong? In her latest column in Business Women Scotland's online magazine Anne dispels some of the myths about hair. Interesting reading.
Link here if you'd like to know more about the magazine.
How Saturday nights have changed! Anne, Leanne, Mags and Tammy swap the glam gear and a night out for their jammies and a night in catching up. I’m reading my book but can hear the chat going on in the background!
Was flicking through the OK! Magazine at the feature on our pals Tessa Hartmann and family. Reminded me one of my fave pix of Anne - with Tessa in London when they celebrated her receiving the CBE. Now we're enjoying seeing the gang on telly's Real Housewives Of Jersey UK. Great seeing pic of Anne glammed up for a night out - such a LONG time since we've had that 'going out' pleasure. But we'll do it again soon - hopefully!
🎂🎂🎂 Happy lockdown birthday to our son Taylor. Have a great day! 🎂🎂🎂
Off and running: the serious business of getting some fresh air and keeping fit during lockdown with Anne and grandson Taylor.
10 THINGS WE’RE MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO POST-LOCKDOWN
SWITCHING on the alarm again. Yes, it’s an early start but it means we’d be getting up at 545am to get ready for the salon again.
TURNING the key in the salon door to open up for the first day back seeing our colleagues and clients again.
SOUNDS like the whirr of the hairdryers and the splashing of water at the back-wash basins.
CATCH-UP CHATS with the clients and hearing their news.
EATING OUT in one of our favourite restaurants - having the experts make our dinner especially after a long day in the salon!
SCHOOL RUN time - dropping off and picking up our two grandsons and ferrying them to and fro their after-school activities on day off.
SATURDAY mornings’ food shop. That early dash round the corner to Marks and Spencer for some weekend food. All done and dusted before we welcome our first customers of the day.
SUMMER evenings sitting in the garden. Just chilling. Thinking about the flowers growing and not the virus numbers growing all the time.
BUZZ of the city centre of Glasgow coming alive again. In the 45 years we’ve been in Bath Street we’ve never seen the city look and sound SO quiet. Understandably of course but we long for the day the streets are buzzing once more.
HUGS. Last but certainly not least. These may still be some time off but we’re keeping things optimistic for the day we can give a hug to our friends again.
What are some of the things YOU look forward to when we’re out of lockdown and restrictions are eased?
