Daniel Russell

Let us introduce you to Daniel Russell, our Salon Manager/Artistic Director at Lisa Edwards Hair Salon in Fareham. After trying several different jobs and working abroad, Daniel eventually discovered a career that his loved in his early 20s.  Now, 12 years on, he’s managing the lovely team in our Fareham salon.

Which styles or colours do you absolutely love doing?  My favourite thing to do is blowdries and styling! It allows me to show off a beautiful cut and colour and have my client feeling amazing. I really enjoy colour corrections and the challenges they present and of course the transformation!

What do you love about being a hairdresser?  I love that it is a limitless career and that it can take you in loads of different directions! I also love training and being able to pass on my skills and knowledge to the apprentices and seeing them flourish and become amazing hairdressers themselves. And my clients make my day, being able to put a smile on their faces is very satisfying.

Who or what inspires you to create fabulous hair?  My team inspire me every day. Working with such a great team of people and seeing their creativity and dedication always pushes me to go above and beyond and make the team proud.

What is your ultimate ambition?  My ultimate ambition is to see my team become the best that they can be and achieving all the things they want to in life.

How would you describe yourself… in three words?  Cheeky, honest and a perfectionist. 

Tell us something about you that would surprise others.  I used to race motorbikes.
