Creative Director

How long have you been hairdressing?

23 years.

Why were you drawn to a career in hairdressing?

The thing that most attracted me to hairdressing was the creative outlet that it provided. When I first got into hairdressing I loved having the opportunity to transform a guest’s hair in a few hours, which has a huge impact on the way they feel about themselves.

I began my formal training in the UK with my husband Graeme. Working in London and being surrounded by the talent and innovation from such a young age has held me in good stead for the rest of my career.

What do you love about your job?

I love the constant need for professional development. Hairdressing a field that constantly changes with the seasons, the trends and the times; it’s a very exciting industry to be in. When I started out I was so passionate and eager to learn all the time. Even as I have matured as a hair stylist, opened Dextress and now train my own team, I have never stopped, and will never stop, learning.

My passion is really for educating stylists of all levels of experience in how to excel at what they do. Hairdressing is in many ways highly collaborative. I may be mentoring or teaching a young stylist, but they often inspire me to perfect a new technique or push the boundaries creatively.

What is your approach to guests?

I believe that a hair salon experience needs to be rejuvenating for our guests. A lot of our guests have busy careers, families and other obligations and we aim to provide a space where they know that they can trust us with their hair and relax. For my team, and me communication is essential. We have a rapport with our guests because we believe it is important for our guests to feel able to be honest with their feedback and know that they can trust us.

What is your personal mantra?

Inspiration comes and goes, creativity is the result of practice.
