I passionately believe in great quality hair, and I am never satisfied until this has been achieved. Ever since I was a boy, I have believed in this philosophy, and this is what has pushed me all of my life. I have worked in one of the best hair salons for well over five years, and I am now the owner of hair-studioh, as well as a Barber educator at Academy num 5 in Fareham.
I am also the Solent entrepreneurial winner of Young Start-Up Talent, with a 50k start-up prize fund.
All of this is a product of my hard work, passion and dedication. As a teenager, I was always told I had brilliant hair, and when I enrolled in my first hairdressing class at school, not only was I a natural at cutting hair, but I had an instinctively excellent sense of style, which leads me to be at the top of the class. At this time, I also discovered my passion for communicating with people, and I began to love to talk with people whilst I worked with them, and this truly leads me to care about them. It is so nice to know so many different people, and that is one of the reasons that I love my job. Not only do we know each other, but I feel a strong sense of connection with each of my regulars, and because of that, they feel so comfortable with me, that they will often just allow me to do what I think is best, and when I know the person, I really know what to do to make their personalities shine. It really is a fantastic and satisfying thing for me to do, and I absolutely adore that part of my work. Of course, I will always go with what they think is best, but I really like that my customers and I have that connection. For me, it isn’t just about a haircut, it’s about making someone shine, and the feeling that I get when I achieve this is truly remarkable, and it’s a thing that my customers and I often share.
I have been had many different experiences, volunteering in on the other side of the world, and I have organised lots of different events. I know what makes something great. I have worked extremely hard to get to where I am, and I still have a lot in my sights, but I have realised that doing what I do makes me genuinely happy, and I couldn’t imagine anything else.
