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.
DARTFORD SALON OWNER
After joining the hairdressing industry in 2004 as a Salon Host/Manager, I was fortunate enough to progress within the industry as Business Development Manager with lookfantastic overseeing 16 salons including our sister salon at Crayford. Due to internal changes I was made redundant and became Salon Host/Manager in Crayford in 2013.
Even though I’ve never cut/coloured hair I’ve always enjoyed the salon environment and meeting our lovely clients. I’ve been given various names over the years from the staff and clients but always as fun (I hope). I pride myself on being organised, keeping the salon up to speed with the latest trends/products/brands.
In 2018, myself and Hannah jointly opened Salon167 David Lloyd. It was time for a new challenge and to leave Crayford along with Katy our Salon Manager for a new adventure.
