Today I was really excited to work with Campbell Wigs. Our client today is a gentleman with shaven hair and wants to have a look that makes him feel confident to go out and feel his age. Campbell Wigs has done another amazing job, creating this gentlemans wig, matching up to hair colour/texture that will complement our client, using 100% human hair. The wig was made longer, and with a cut by myself we created this style for our client Our client is truly happy and feels confi
My client from Putney London hasn't had a colour done for a while. I loved using the free hand method to create this soft, sun kissed balayage look. Using a illumina Wella Toner to give that colour that extra softeness to it. Finishing with a bouncy blowdry to show off that texture with the layers. My client feels ready for her summer events coming up.
I had the pleasure to have an events company get in touch with me through social media a couple of days ago, seeing if I would be able to help with them The World Draught Masters. Here is one of the looks I did on one of the hosts for the evening. It was an amazing experience, a pleasure to be apart of the event and work with the event company Momentumww. I look forward to working with them again soon.

My previous post I mentioned how I was getting involved with another application method of doing hair extensions. On my client she wanted to add length and volume to her hair. Using 150grams of Beauty Works Keratin Bond Hair Extensions, my client is happy with the result. She says that she prefers it so much better to the weave as they're easy to maintain and has more movement. I look forward to seeing my client in 10-12 weeks time for her maintenance. Feel free to message me
When I first started doing hair extensions I got a high demand in Keratin Bonds, something that I never really done before. Until this week, where I taken up some training to broaden my skills and be able to do them. It is an amazing feeling being able to have another skill under your belt and hopefully make other people happy with your work. Keratin Bonds are different to the Micro Ring method that I do. The application is done by heat, and the hair is made with added Kerati
I posted earlier this week about how I got a regram from "Modern Salon". I have been so amazed by the support I have got from that post and my friends this week, that I have hit over 400 followers on instagram. It is an amazing feeling being able to show your work to people, as hairdressing is something I am passionate about. I love seeing other peoples work and being inspired by what skills have gone into it. And hopefully I have done the same or will be able to do the same

The past couple of weeks I have got hooked on to the latest trend... I've started joining the hairdressing nation with #mannequinmonday The name is what it is, uploading an image of your work by demonstrating it on a mannequin dolls head. I like to do styles that I haven't done before, if I don't have someones hair to practice on. I uploaded this image on Monday morning and was taken back by the amount of people who liked my image. To me, I didn't think it was the best work i
