Nicola - Director
Originating from North Yorkshire, I started hairdressing at 17yrs of age. I began as an apprentice and over the years have developed to management and then to opening my own salon.
Career Highlight - Within my career I have achieved multiple awards - Assistant of the Year, I won the chance to meet and work with Beverly Cobella (the first female to win British Hairdresser of the Year), I have picked up 2 awards with the NHF (National Hairdressing Federation) winning a Senior Bride competition and Ladies Fashion Award and I have also been a semi finalist for National competitions throughout the country. I have developed further within a more creative position, doing hair for shows, photo shoots and I have even taken part in judging competitions for schools.
Over the last 7 years I have managed salons throughout the Midlands and the South including SAKS salons. I progressed even further with my knowledge and in 2012 I was awarded a MCA degree (master of colour).
I am a Bridal hair and Prom hair specialist, and take part in doing many Wedding Fares and work shops for creative and vintage hair-ups.
