After starting off at Headmasters Flagship salon Wimbledon Village as a stylist I moved my way up to salon manager ,   I  gained as much knowledge and experience from that I then went on to win Loreal colour trophy and after being part of several artistic team I then became Headmasters Creative director for 5 years overseeing the creative vision for the company.  and travelled as an international educator for Loreal moving on to learn from other artistic entity before coming back to open Headmasters Brighton 10 years ago.
