Describe your cutting style and speciality/strengths? "Modern, textured, casual shapes. I prefer to keep my styling a casual as possible, nothing overworked or false feeling. Natural textures and loose feeling hair is what I’m particularly interested in. I think the undone look is the hardest to achieve, and it’s something I think clients appreciate as they can replicate the look more easily at home. I really like cutting longer men’s hair, or girls looking for more of a “DIY” feel to their look. I’m inspired by my trips to Berlin, whereby everyone looks very gritty and their hair similarly looks quite raw and youthful. I like anything brave such as shorter fringes, mullety looks, or girls with very short hair or ideally shaved heads."
What type of client should come to you and why? "Anyone who wants to go on a hair journey. Someone who wants to be brave and feels stuck in a rut with their “Rachael from Friends” look would be my ideal client. It could be that their hair is over-complicated and needs simplifying to bring it back to a modern look, or someone who feels their hair is too simple and they feel the need to make a statement. People with curly hair who want to keep it curly are always a big tick with me! I also enjoy doing longer men’s styles a lot."
What training and experience have you had? "I worked for Toni&Guy for 16 years (all of my career up until this point!) With the company I had the chance to work at London Fashion Week numerous times, work on shoots, and I took part in many industry awards. I trained for a period with the International Artistic Team before assistant managing Toni&Guy salons and helping to inspire others to achieve their goals."
What personal interests do you have? "I’m interested in Electronic music/record collecting, fashion(particularly utilitarian Japanese streetwear urban streetwear), collecting trainers, street art, eating in great restaurants, travel, culture and street/youth culture."

Describe your cutting and colouring style "My cutting style is very classic and always suitable to the clients personal style - I love making a shape that enhances the face in the most beautiful way. I love a classic bob and I always take care to go with the natural texture and movement of the hair. In terms of colouring, I create beautiful natural highlights and I love shiny coloured hair. I take great care to match the hair colour with my clients skin tone and I love a discrete effect that doesn’t scream to the world, but just compliments the haircut or the style. I am also all about taking good care of the hair, especially when it is pre-lightened. When working with unnatural colours I like them dusty or pastel."
