I have been hairdressing for over 16 years now and have established a strong client base and portfolio.
EXPERIENCE & INSPIRATION
I have worked for salons such as John Carne, Saks hair and beauty, Toni&Guy and Charles Worthington. I gained great knowledge and experience from each salon and continue to grow and develop my experience as a freelance hairstylist.
The level of training I received at John Carne was highly professional it opened my eyes to what the industry had on offer in and outside a salon and I really appreciated everything I learnt during my time at the company and would recommend the apprenticeship to any one starting out in the industry.
I then went on to Saks hair and beauty,
During my time there I went on a few courses and learnt a variety of different techniques but still found myself wanting more and was drawn to Toni and guy as I was inspired by there creative team.
I followed my dreams and got a job at Toni & Guy, I loved the company's creativity and learnt more about colouring technique's and working with skin tone. I also took part in the L'Oreal hair idol and helped out on talent spotting 2005. Toni & Guy was great fun and I met some wonderful hairdressers. It's amazing how much you can learn just by working with different people.
I then went on to work for Charles Worthington in London, My time there was spent working as a Personal Assistant for two of the art directors. One of the directors worked within the Charles Worthington art team, I was working alongside two amazing hairdressers and was shown many different techniques and given lots of valuable advice. Working as a PA was a position I couldn't turn down as it was a great learning curve and I got to meet some amazingly talented and very well known hairdressers as well as progressing my knowledge.
The next step was starting my own business. I wanted to specialise in weddings and session work, as well as working with my regular clients.
When I started out I teamed up with a friend Jo and her wedding company lovehair, Jo gave me some training and opened the door into the wedding industry for me which I was very grateful for, I got started on my new venture with great success.
I was fortunate enough to meet a photographer and a couple of make up artists who I still work with now, Nathalie Eleni & Natacha Schmitt, Two amazingly talented Make up artists who really took me under there wing and helped me build confidence and a portfolio in the other side of the industry and would book me regularly to work on their clients hair ahead of Red Carpet events.
My work has been published in many magazines, TV and music video's I have worked with a celebrity clientele, I am so grateful to everyone I have met on my journey as I really feel that without there inspiration I would not have had the career and experience I have been fortunate enough to have so far.
There is always something to learn in hairdressing you can never say you know it all and that's why I love my job as there is always something new and exciting around the corner, I cant wait to see what the future years bring!
