“I’ve been cutting hair since I was 6”

All the way through my school years I was adamant I wanted to work with children – and then I did 2 weeks work experience at 15… turns out, not for me.

When I then realised, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life I turned to my mum who reminded me that I’ve had a passion for the hair industry since I was only 6 years old.  She must’ve been referring to that time I decided to cut a chunk out of my own hair and hide it under the sink so no one would ever know, at least we can laugh about it now!

After 2 years at college studying my NVQ L2 and L3 in Hairdressing I joined Segais in 2014. I have worked my way up from Graduate stylist to Artistic Director and have been Manager at the Didcot Salon since 2017.

My passion is making people look and, most importantly, feel their utmost best when they leave the salon. Whether that be a subtle balayage, a textured pixie cut or a brand-new head of hair extensions.

My aim as a stylist is to learn anything and everything within the industry. I enjoy going on courses, learning new things and brushing up on self-taught skills. Since qualifying, I have gained new skills including Wedding hair and Make-up and 8 methods of Hair Extensions including the very popular tape-ins which is my speciality in salon.
