With 30 years experience behind me I’m very focussed on education within my salon and ensuring myself and my team continually attend training courses to keep up to date with the latest trends and evolving techniques.
When I’m not running a column in the salon I am passing on my hairdressing knowledge to our next generation of stylists and keeping them continually inspired and excited about there work. I feel very lucky to be a part of such an incredible team.
I joined the salon in 2006 as a young apprentice and became a full time stylist in 2010, I have since worked my way up to a creative director within the salon and now work part time since having my children.
I am the in salon assessor which allows me to play apart in the education of our trainees, this means I am able to observe them and pass them off, helping them achieve there qualification.
I work 3 days a week in the salon and enjoy all areas of my trade but in particular I love an exciting restyle, the classic bling bob and all areas of colour work.
I joined Harpers in 2008 to train as a hairdresser and have now been on the salon floor for 9 years, in this time I have earned my salon hallmark for big bouncy blow drys and occasion/wedding hair.
I enjoy creating beautiful yet wearable styles and building strong relations with my clients is really important to me.
I recently took part in a photo shoot in London with the TIGI team to work on a new collection for our very own window display, the collection was based around wedding hair, I got the opportunity to pick the models, create the perfect picture and style the hair myself. This was a great experience and gave me many new ideas for creating beautiful wedding hair.
I have worked at the salon since 2002 so I am one of the more experienced stylists in the salon. I have been on several TIGI creative colouring and cutting courses and enjoy learning and keeping up to date with new techniques in this ever changing profession.
I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing but in particular cutting short hair. The thing that I love about my job is meeting new people and making clients look and feel amazing.
Working on the salon floor and running a column since 2014 I have gained a lot of knowledge and experience within cutting and colouring and I’ve learnt a lot about myself and what it is I enjoy within the industry.
I am specifically drawn to the more classic cuts and colours, I also specialise in Beauty Works Hair Extensions and I am the In Salon TIGI Copyright Specialist which basically means I hold all the knowledge on what products from Shampoo, treatments and right through to which styling product best suits your hair. I’m also responsible for educating the rest of the team too which is a role I’m very passionate about.
I started my apprenticeship in 2010 and haven’t looked back since, I am full time in the salon and love to create the most classic and elegant colours and cuts, I completed a Vidal sasoon cutting course which was focussed around these areas of hairdressing.
I regularly get involved in TIGI courses to keep in check with the latest styles and techniques which means I get to travel to London through the year, this helps me stay inspired and excited about the industry. Along side running my own column I also assist Emma in helping to keep the salon running smoothly on a day to day basis.
I began my apprenticeship with Harpers in 2015 and qualified in 2017 and am now on the salon floor as a senior stylist, which means I’m full of fresh ideas and in touch with current fashion. I regularly attend courses in London with the TIGI team to gain more knowledge, learn new techniques in both colour and cutting and to get fresh inspiration.
I specialise in Beauty Works Hair Extensions and have a passion for “occasion hair”. I recently got involved in a photo shoot with the TIGI team to create a whole new collection and get inspired. I worked closely with the team to create a beautiful window display for our salon based around special occasion hair. Not only did I style the hair, I got involved in the choosing of the model and styling the models outfits. This was a fantastic opportunity and I learnt a lot from it.
I enjoy all aspects of colour work but have a creative flare for precision cutting and short hair work.
Senior Colour Technician
I am working through my apprenticeship to gain my NVQ level 3, I train in the salon every Monday where I work hard on strengthening my skills within hairdressing.
I really enjoy my work and have a keen interest in fashion. I use fashion magazines and social media to gain my inspiration.
When I’m not training I can be found giving the best shampoo and making the best brew in order to make each client feel special and welcomed.
I joined The team in 2015 and after working on the salon floor as a colour technician for 2 years I feel my strengths lie in creative freehand colour and balayage.
I’ve recently returned from maternity leave and am now on the salon floor full time as a stylist which I am absolutely loving. I have a new found love for classic cutting such as the “classic bob” the “perfect pixie and the “blunt lob”.
I recently visited the TIGI studios in London to attend a colour corse and a men’s classic cutting course. I feel it is important to regularly take these courses to keep up to date with the latest trends and techniques.
Graduate gents stylist
I am currently working towards my NVQ level 3 to eventually take my place on the salon floor.
I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing but I have a real passion for current gents styling. This is so far my strength within the salon and something in which I take great pride.
I am very motivated and focused on where I want to be and I take full advantage of our in salon training day to help me achieve my goals.
Being the newest member to the team I am currently working hard towards my NVQ level 2.
After helping out in a previous salon for almost 2 years I decided that it was definitely the career for me. I joined Harpers in Dec 18 so I now train in the salon every Monday and the rest of the week I closely assist the stylists and help to make each client feel welcome and pampered.
