Which hairstyles do you absolutely love doing? Bobs are my favourite hair cut because they’ve very versatile and never boring for me. When it comes to colouring, I’ve always liked natural tones mixed with autumnal shades. However, highlighting hair with blonde or natural tones is my preferred choice of application.
What do you love about being a hairdresser? Being creative and social has always been my favourite part of the job.
Who inspires you to create fabulous hair? My influences over the years were Vidal Sassoon and Trevor Sorbie, but there are so many these days that it’s hard to decide. Mainly the people I work with.
What is your ultimate ambition? To travel the American and Canadian Rockies on my Harley Davidson.
How would you describe yourself… in three words? Creative. hard-working, chatty.
