WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE LOOK?
Big textured, short or long, lots of movement and definition
WHAT ARE YOU MOST PASSIONATE ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO HAIRDRESSING?
Consultation – getting to know my guests on a personal level to really understand the direction in which we are heading with their hair and how I can best help them to achieve that.
WHO INSPIRES YOU IN HAIR AND FASHION?
Sienna Miller, Fearne Cotton and Kelly Osbourne
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY CLIENT IN YOUR CHAIR, WHO WOULD IT BE?
Christina Aguilera. I saw her on a show once and I wish at that point I had been able to do her hair.
DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR AREA OF EXPERTISE? My most prominent skill lies within technical hair cutting for both men and women. I have an eye for visualising the appropriate shapes and colours to suit your face shape and skin tone.
