I have loved hair as long as I can remember, My first memory is being told by my hairdresser at the age of 6 “you’re going to be a hair stylist” because I sat perfectly still, watching what was going on in the shop, wearing a massive smile on my face the the whole time (also my mum couldn’t walk past a salon without me begging to go inside for a hair cut).
I was always excited to go to my nan’s house as she would curl my hair in rollers, rags or braids overnight, I could never wait to get up and see how my hair looked in the morning when I took it out.
On holiday at 9 in Antigua I sat for hours leaning from the ladies on the beach doing braids, rather than playing in the pool. A few years later on another holiday in St. Lucia I watched for hours as they used hair extensions, I couldn’t believe how it could be done!
At 13 my step mum took me to have my very first cut and blow dry and I came out with my hair blowdried straight. I was mesmerised watching and I couldn’t believe my hair was straight without Irons. I was hooked, I wanted to make people feel as good as I did that day.
In short I never wanted to do anything else.
So I started my career at 14 with a Saturday job cleaning and sweeping but most importantly watching and learning.
At school I told everyone I will be a hair stylist, the teachers said I was too clever for that and I would be able to do much more. (well I showed them)
I continued to train and develop my skills, I had some wonderful jobs and gained fantastic experience.
Wherever I worked I always specialised in Bridal and occasion styling.
After Christmas 2015 I decided “hey I want to do bridal hair” and I took the plunge. I left my job and I started working for myself. The life work balance is great, I haven’t looked back and it just keeps getting better.
I continue to put myself through training as often as possible. I enjoy learning like a hobby and I think it’s so important to stay current.
Well, thats me!
