How long have you been in hairdressing?
8 years

Why did you choose to be a hairdresser?
Because hairdressing is a good way to show my creativeness. I enjoy making the best out of people and being in control of how they look.

What do you like most about being a hairdresser?
I love everything about hairdressing, the whole package! From changing someones whole appearance, to just adding alittle colour. I really loveto design something for the individual client, so it is their own haircut, for them! For me it is important to understand and respect what the client wants and then delivery it. This gives me the greatest satisfaction, making my clients happy!

What do you specialise in, i.e., colour, hair-up?
I specialise in everything as the whole package is very important.

What do you like about working for Zappas?
The opportunities we have and the team I work with.

What/who motivates you?
Running my own column like it’s my own business and my strong management team.

What/who influences you?
Fashion, my work mates, watching people on the street. Everything you can see or touch that you can use to interpret into a haircut or colour.

What courses and qualifications in hairdressing have you achieved?
1 week course with Toni and Guy, Inspirational Youth 07, various colour courses, NVQ 1 and 2 and motivational courses with Peter Lunn and Alan Austin Smith.
