I am an award-winning hair stylist & colourist, I pride myself as being understanding, reassuring and supportive towards my clients. Often having to advise, always with immense integrity, taking time to listen to my client’s wants & needs.
I constantly ensure the salon is welcoming and inquisitive; to both put at ease, and to help offer a first-class service. Whether it be hair, nails, spa treatments or one of the many other services on offer, you can be rest assured, you will feel extraordinary when you leave.
I strive to be constantly learning; having attended My Colour Work Academy, Sassoon Academy, Suki and Bumble & Bumble, this allows me fine-tuned my attention to detail and techniques.
Competing and winning awards for more than ten years, I have developed a wealth of ideas, to offer that something a little bit different. What I believe makes me unique is my ability to provide my clients with an exclusive and individual look.

Television beckoned, and I have appeared a number of times as a guest presenter. I would demonstrate and explain, much sought after colouring techniques and ideas.
