The Entrepreneurial Exchange

On The Agenda

It's been a busy few weeks for Charlie Taylor, the Perth-based hairdresser whose entrepreneurial skills are becoming as well-known as her handling of a pair of scissors. Taylor, whose Charlie Taylor Hair Health & Beauty group now operates four salons frequented by the likes of Radio 1's Edith Bowman, opera diva Lesley Garrett, footballer Stephen Pressley and even Tiger Woods, will need to buy a bigger trophy cabinet after adding the Scottish Woman of Achievement award at the prestigious Association of Scottish Business Woman's Awards to her clutch of gongs. And with all those illustrious clients, it's no surprise to hear that she has also recently been named Celebrity Hairdresser of the Year by the National Hairdressing Federation. Taylor, a member of The Entrepreneurial Exchange, is a three-times winner of the Scottish Hairdresser of the Year title and a strong believer in nurturing and developing her staff. We know where to take our crowning glory for its next short back and sides Although the early October weather has been quite kind to us, it is probably the general lack of sunshine this year that has led to 32% of Scots considering a home in warmer climes, particularly Spain. According to Clydesdale Bank, almost a quarter of us see buying a property abroad as a long-term investment while one in 10 would consider buying overseas as their best option to get a foot on the property ladder. But for those of us with concerns about the legal and financial issues involved, the Clydesale has launched a new Buy Abroad, Feel At Home package to guide you through the entire process. What's more, the lovely Amanda Lamb from Channel 4's A Place In The Sun has this advice: "Taking professional advice throughout the process and going into it with a full understanding of what you're doing is paramount."
