It’s 1977, I’m 5 years old, I live oop north and I’m an Italian ice cream seller at The Queen’s Silver Jubilee…..I’m not really sure why my mum thought I should be an Italian ice cream seller but standing on the back of that processional float I LOVED the attention! Today I’m based in The Cotswolds, I’m a multi award winning bridal hairdresser and I have to say I have a great life and love my job…..how many people get to say that!!
So, how did I get here? Well I was very lucky to have a Mum who was incredibly talented and one of the most creative hairdressers that I know, I left school as soon as I could and 3 years later (and lots of blood, sweat and training later!) I was working alongside my Mum and sister, Nicky, in the family hairdressing salon. Working with family I helped to build a hugely successful business over the next 18 years which was an incredibly rewarding and creatively exciting time but eventually I wanted more!
Having always LOVED styling hair for weddings I decided to set out on a journey and see if I could ‘Specialise’ in making a brides dream look come true, I’m not sure really what I expected but I certainly didn’t think that less than 4 years later I would win the national award ‘Bridal Stylist of the Year’….all for doing a job that I love as much as I do!!
I also have a passion for horticulture and I won an award for my garden a couple of years ago but that’s another story! As I said I’m based in the beautiful Cotswold town of Stroud, I spend most of my life creating dream hair for gorgeous brides (and walking our rescue dog Bertie!) and when not doing that I have limited availability for ‘day to day’ hairdressing at the stunning ‘Secret Salon’ home to Fordham Hair Design. So in a nutshell that’s me, but who are you? I’d love to hear from you, why not get in touch? Drop me an email and let’s chat!
