I began my career as an apprentice hairdresser when I was 16 years old. I caught a bus to London every day to work at Vidal Sassoon in Brook Street and after three years I qualified as a fully trained Vidal Sassoon stylist. The passion I had then for working with hair combined with style and beauty still drives me today. My early career was spent at Vidal Sassoon salons in West London where I progressed to the role of Assistant Art Director. During this time I travelled throughout Europe working at shows and exhibitions showcasing the latest in hair design and styling in amongst other places Milan, Stockholm, Lisbon and Madrid. I also carried out demonstrations of advanced cutting skills and promoted the Vidal Sassoon training academy.
In 1992 I transferred to the Covent Garden salon where I continued to travel now teaching young British and American hairdressers. I also during this period did editorial work for American and Italian Vogue magazine and regularly consulted at British Fashion Week working with British designers such as Paul Costello, Katherine Hammnet and Ghost. I also appeared on the BBC’s The Clothes Show demonstrating ways of working with hair as well as producing a number of in-house training videos for Vidal Sassoon.
In 1995 I was invited to join the creative team at Stannard and Slingsby in Kensington. During the eight years I worked for Stannard and Slingsby I continued my editorial and advertising consultancy work as well as working as a tutor at the London College of Fashion.
Following the birth of my son I moved back to Windsor and continued my career with two of the premier hairdressing salons in Windsor before deciding that I would work exclusively for myself. Since 2011 I have built up my business to the stage that I do not advertise but purely rely on recommendation and word of mouth. I always try to understand and achieve the particular look and style my clients want and feel the input I provide is appreciated and valued by them; many of whom travel from London to see me.
I have always loved weddings and brides so in 2016 I undertook a course in Covent Garden where they specialise in bridal hair. I wanted to understand and appreciate the skills needed to make sure that my brides achieved the look they wanted on their most special day.
I hope you will feel you can trust me to help you with every aspect of achieving the look you deserve on your day. Please read my website testimonials and feel free to call me to chat about your special day.
