Meet the team.
SALON OWNER CRAYFORD & DARTFORD
I've been in the hairdressing industry since 1999 and owned my own salon since 2004. I have had the privilege of watching my salon change and grow into what it is today. In those years, I have trained young stylists to blossom into exceptional hairdressers. I feel that salon life is what I love the most, especially from the pleasure of watching a transformation we create with our very own hands. I thoroughly enjoy watching the change we can make to someone's mood by creating a great haircut or giving advice on a new colour.
April 2018 I had the opportunity to grow my business and open another salon in Dartford. This salon is situated within a David Lloyd club and is slightly different to our Crayford salon. Salon167 Hair & Beauty opened its doors to providing Barbering, Beauty, Aesthetics with a nurse prescriber and womens Well Being Clinic as well as Hairdressing.
