Salon Director (owner)

It’s an unusual route into the business, but Riccardo first came to RRI as a client at the Royal Exchange Square salon (in his own words “back when I still had hair”). He fell in love with the craft of hairdressing and the RRI ethos, and set about training under our founder Alan. That was 25 years ago. He was the first RRI Assistant to become a Salon Director, and his commitment has never waned – you’ll still find him in the salon seven days a week. One of our most experienced hairdressers, Riccardo works on all types of hair. Cutting, styling, colouring – he makes a masterpiece of everything he does. When he’s not in the salon, he might be off styling at high-profile events like T in the Park, or off riding his beloved Ducati motorbike.


Salon Director

With 30 years’ experience 20 with RRI, Jackie is one of the company’s most award winning stylists at salon director level.  Jackie is a specialist with extensions trained at the highest level with Barclay wolf taped extensions and great lengths bonded extensions. Having been a great length hall of fame winner twice, Jackie also has her Schwarzkopf master colour degree and is an expert at keratin smoothing treatments. Having picked up total excellence and the fantastic hairdresser awards at the RRI congress, Jackie’s love for hair is backed up with her passion for art and painting which helps her create and tailor individual looks for her clients. She has continuously developed her expertise for cutting, colouring and extension work and has become an influential member within rainbow room international. We are delighted to have her as part of the team at Rainbow Room International Ayr.


Art Director

Rachel believes the key to creating amazing hair lies in building a genuine bond with clients from day one. We couldn’t agree more. With that level of service, Rachel’s able to turn any hair idea into a reality – be it a hair-up, colour correction or edgy gent’s cut. A true ‘designer’, Rachel has a uniquely wild yet polished style of her own, which is reflected in everything she does.


Designer Stylist

Zoey joined the RRI family in 2011 as an Assistant, and is fast becoming one of our rising stars. Since qualifying from our training programme in 2013, she has built a diverse range of clients – giving her the opportunity to showcase her equally diverse range of skills. Zoey has recently completed her Schwarzkopf Master Colourist Degree, making her one of our colour experts. For a skillful cut or creative colour, along with loads of great ideas and inspiration, Zoey’s your woman.


Designer Stylist

Ross' interest in hairdressing began at the young age of 7 when he used to style his mothers hair, albeit not to her taste!

Ross left school at the tender age of 15 to start his career in hairdressing and has never looked back.

The enthusiasm he has at 15 is still with him now and as the years have progressed her is always looking to embrace new styles and trends.

Ross loves all aspects of hairdressing but his passion lies in weddings, hair ups and style dries.



Carly is a second generation stylist coming to the RRI Ayr team after leaving school. 

She is always driving team energy with her infectious smile and passion for perfection.

Carly's natural ability makes her a very dynamic individual, she embraces the challenge of any hair style or colour and relishes the opportunity to exceed her clients expectations. 


Front of House Manager

Guido has been the face of our salon for ten years, and we’d be lost without him. He makes it his job to ensure every client’s experience more than lives up to their expectation, while at the same time keeping the salon running smoothly and looking perfect. 


Front of House

Milly joined the team in 2011, and originally trained to become a stylist. Before long, she realised her real passion lay in building rapport with clients and helping to run the salon.  Milly gives every client a warm welcome, so come in and say hello – she’ll be more than happy to help.

If you really can't make your appointment please try to give us at least 24 hours notice.


We understand that finding the right stylist is a very personal choice. As a team we embrace and encourage clients who are just looking for a change to try a different stylist.


As a little added bonus, if you book your next appointment online we’ll take £4.50 off the cost of your treatment! Unfortunately this doesn't apply to our Beauty Salon or Howard Street Training Academy.


If you’re thinking of going for a new style or colour, feel free to bring photos or references with you. And if you have a preferred stylist and time slot, it’s also a good idea to book your next appointment before you leave the salon.

Skin Test

Being colour experts, we never (ever) colour hair without a skin test at least 48 hours in advance. You’ll need to pop in, but it only takes 2 minutes. We really can’t put colour on your hair without it. If you're not sure if you've had one before, check with your RRI salon.


At every appointment, you can expect an in-depth consultation - to ensure your stylist fully understands the look you want, and how to work with your type of hair. From there, you can relax in safe hands – from a heavenly shiatsu massage to perfectly-applied finishing touches.
