Meet the team



I have been working in the hairdressing industry for over 30 years! During this time I have worked and managed in some great salons and met some amazing people!

I thoroughly enjoyed my time teaching & Assessing Hairdressing, passing on my skills & knowledge to aspiring students, but then realised it was time to open my own salon.

My main focus is to build a great team, making sure we always deliver the best customer experience we can!


Assistant Manager

After completing my NVQ Level 2 in 2011 I worked in top London salon D&J Ambrose, where I assisted with the preparation of shows and shoots for both colour and styling. There I trained under award-winning stylists such as as British hairdresser of the Year Darren Ambrose.

I also received training with both HOB and RUSH of whom I also worked for 2 years. It is working with these names and many talented stylists, that has broadened my knowledge, skill and experience.

I specialise in personalised bespoke haircuts and balayages.

In my free time, I enjoy long walks in the countryside, and planning exciting trips abroad!


Senior Stylist

I’ve been hairdressing since 2014. I studied my level 2 in college and then went on to working in a salon where I completed my level 3. I’ve also completed a number of colour courses.

I enjoy creative cutting and fashion colours. I also enjoy putting hair up (prom, weddings and party events)

In my spare time I like to spend time with family and friends, day trips and travelling to new places!
