It began having people to look up to and goals to reach and everything because simpler."
Describe your cutting style...

Describe your cutting style/strengths.. "I try to put a personality into every cut I do. I’m certainly not a sexy/glamorous hairdresser! My cutting is informed my street/youth culture, so I suppose you could say I like to de-age people with a haircut, but everything I do is very wearable and personalised to the individual. I love clients that aren’t afraid to push their cut, or a texture that little bit more than the ordinary."
