With over 30 years’ experience in the hair and beauty industry, I still have the same passion for creative and innovative hairdressing as I did all those years ago. Having started as an apprentice, as Salon Director, I’m responsible for the successful management of five busy salons and a team of 70+ staff.

My passion for education and learning has resulted in the launch of Academy Education, which consists of weekly in-house sessions for trainees and masterclasses for all levels of proficiency. My ambition is to develop Academy Education into a fully fledged training school – inspiring and motivating the personal growth of hair and beauty professionals.
