Advanced Stylist Lilly Rapley has been a stylist for nearly two years and says her experience so far has been incredible.  She says: “I have learnt many new skills along the way, made a great bond with my clients and have worked with an amazing team!”

Which hairstyles do you love doing?  The styles I love doing at the moment are short blunt bobs. I think they look really trendy and classy! My favourite colouring technique is balayage. I think it’s a really natural technique to achieve lightened with little maintenance needed!

What do you love about being a hairdresser?  There are many reasons why I love being a hairdresser. I love making people feel more confident within themselves and knowing I’ve made them feel happy when they leave the salon. I also love how sociable my job is and how I can have so many close relationships with my clients!

Who inspires you to create fabulous hair? A lot of celebrity hairdressers that I follow on Instagram inspire me as I scroll through their pages and see them producing some incredible hairstyles! I love how all of them produce modern and new hairstyles too.

What is your ultimate ambition? My ambition in life is to eventually own my own salon and make my way up to working with some celebrities!

How would you describe yourself… in three words? I would describe myself as enthusiastic, hardworking and very sociable!
