Some people say that when you dream BIG the universe conspires in your favour. For Team Loyal, further success is just around the corner in 2016 with the announcement of a strategic partnership with Colin Ford who will join the team in January 2016. Colin is the Founder of FORDMomentum, a consultancy designed to enable and inspire individuals to live their dreams by being the best they can be. Intentions that ambitious can only help make the world a little bit happier.

Colin’s experience boasts over 40 years of Hairdressing experience, which began in his native country of New Zealand, until immigrating to Canada 20 years ago. With the move to Canada, Colin was appointed National Education and Events Director for L’Oreal Professionnel Canada and later Paris, France, where Colin accepted the role of International Education Director for L’Oréal Professionnel. He was responsible for all professional development for the brand, which included traveling internationally and training the industry’s leading Hairdressing Educators all over the globe. In addition, Colin has been a Master Facilitator hosting many national award shows such as L’Oréal Professionnel’s Colour Trophy and The Mirror Awards.
In joining Team Loyal as the Brand Director, Colin will be taking on a new role.  He will work both behind the chair as a Lead Mentor Hairstylist, as well as the Key Director of both the Internship Training Program (Loyal’s exclusive immersion program for new talent) and also the Mastery Program (Loyal’s ongoing professional development for all Stylists). As the vision of the Loyal brand expands, Colin will remain a key partner in the development and roll out of new initiatives to be announced in the first quarter of 2016. With his industry experience, along with the inspired vision of the Loyal group of salons, the inspiration is to elevate the craft of the Hairdressing industry.” I am truly excited to be embarking on a new direction in my life, a direction that allows me to continue to follow my dreams of positively impacting our amazing industry of hairdressing while also working with a dynamic young team of unlimited potential…” says Ford.

Personal and professional development is the key to success of developing any brand. This remains to be the driving force behind the Loyal group of salons which invests heavily into the development of the team that delivers a world class beauty experience. “.. The combination of Loyal’s youthful vision, passion, and energy, along with my wealth of experience and maturity can only be a winning combination that will naturally make a difference in the lives all of we touch daily. I am so fortunate to be able to do this and live in such a beautiful environment that truly reminds me of my beloved homeland, New Zealand.” Ford continues.

Visionary and CEO, Loyal Wooldridge says ‘We are beyond honoured to have Colin Ford join our team to take what we already do to the next level. His industry experience will enhance our team by empowering and supporting them to achieve the career of their dreams!’

Wooldridge will also be joining the team of FORDMomentum as a Trainer and Coach working in seminars and one to one coaching for business professionals. ‘We (Colin) believe in creating our partnership to take both company visions to the next level. With our vision for the salon and Colin’s industry experience we are confident that this will be a life changing journey for our entire team.’

Colin will be joining the team mid-January and is excited to begin developing his Hairdressing career in the gorgeous Okanagan Valley. The Okanagan was chosen for it’s development potential and most importantly the lifestyle that reminds him so much of his home in New Zealand.
