I am both very technical and an absolute perfectionist when it comes to my hairdressing. I feel I am an all round hairdresser and can tackle anything. I predominantly worked in Toni&Guy salons where I not only ran a busy column of clients I helped train my colleagues. I have worked backstage at London Fashion Week for many seasons creating stunning catwalk and editorial looks which has helped make me known for my glamorous blow drys and big hair.

 

Charlotte- Graduate Stylist

I have been working at Gorgeous for over 2 years and I love being a part of an amazing and vibrant team. I recently completed my NVQ level 2 with a distinction and I am excited to begin my NVQ Level 3. I enjoy running a busy column and growing my confidence as a Graduate stylist. Since leaving school and beginning an apprenticeship I have fallen in love with hairdressing and cannot imagine doing anything else. I am passionate about what I do and strive to being the best I can be. My favourite part of hairdressing is seeing the happiness on guests faces once I have done their hair; hair can change a person’s whole mood and I take great pleasure in being able to create that feeling for guest’s multiple times a day!

Maisie- graduate stylist

Hi I’m Maisie, I’ve been hairdressing for 3 and half years now and it something I am passionate about and love doing. Over the 3 years I’ve worked extremely hard to get my NVQ level 2, I’ve also passed both L’Oreal colour keys 1&2 and had the opportunity to go on a LM cutting and styling course which I thoroughly enjoyed. I would describe myself as a bubbly out going people person that strives to make people feel and look their best in all aspects of hair, not only do I want people to feel and look their best I believe in the whole salon experience from when you greet them at the front door. Although I like all aspects of hairdressing my favourite is highlighting and making my blondes BLONDE!, balayage and hair up are also things I throughly enjoy as when I’m doing this I feel I can show of my creative skills. I Look forward to starting my new adventure at Gorgeous with such a fantastic team.
