Stephanie Marie Bespoke Hairdressing

Anya Zervudachi talks to Stephanie O’Hara about what makes her salon stand out from the crowd

What makes your hairdressing experience unique?
I aim to provide a truly bespoke, VIP service and experience to my clients on an individual, one to one basis. I have utilised my years of experience to create and design a truly special and exclusive environment whereby clients are welcome to relax and relish in the confidence of being in the hands of a professional where 100% attention is dedicated to them without any pressures or distractions. Every appointment is unique in itself, therefore it is essential to offer a highly skilled knowledge foundation alongside in depth communication during the consultation process to enable clients to feel at ease in my attainment for perfection.


Where is the salon based and what can we expect?
The salon is based directly on the main route into and out of Brighton, allowing easy access and free on street parking. The salon itself has been developed with exclusivity and sophistication in mind, taking inspiration from my favourite independent Brighton based interior shops ‘The Papillon Shop’ and ‘The Three Angels’ I have been able to combine my interests of old and new interior.

I would love clients to feel welcome in a setting I have created with them in mind. My eye for detail and perfection is not only present in the salon itself, but in my skillset and passion for providing beautiful hair. Every client and every service in hair care is bespoke. No one person has the same hair as another; it is a purely unique service to provide a hair prescription. Therefore expect to leave the salon with either a precision cut, a glamorous blow-dry, stunningly glossy colour or be on trend with high shine OPI nails. I have chosen to stock L’Oreal and Kerastase hair care, I believe in there quality 100%, and they are the perfect accompaniment in their luxurious results.


Do you offer any other treatments beside hairdressing?
I do in addition to hair services; I recommend Kerastase scalp and in-salon rituals, because there’s always time to treat. As well as, offering Express, Luxury or Gel manicures applying all areas of the high-end OPI nail care range.


Are you able to do bridal hair?
Absolutely! Bridal Hair alongside creative hair up work is a favourite and strength of mine. I have recently been to Jamaica to work alongside a beautiful Bride for her wedding, and am very honoured to be chosen as a ‘wedding hairdresser’. This area of my work is something I am passionate and excited about. I provide in-depth consultations, thorough pre-wedding hair trials and aim to build a rapport with the bride so much so that come the Wedding day all stress is eliminated. It is a very rewarding aspect to my career.
