In this Video you will see how I take looks from fashion runways and apply to suit a salon client.
Red carpet, Rock and Roll, Hippie,
Modern Minimal Styles.

People often ask me what is my favorite style?
I love all styles especially when it fits my check list below:-

  1. A style that works from head to toe.
  2. Enhances the clients features, creating an oval face shape.
  3. Fits the lifestyle and personality of the client.
  4. Something within the design that makes it unique and special.

“Don’t be blinded by fashion, not all fashion is suitable for everyone. Style is timeless but fashion is fleeting, never loose sight of beauty as you pursue a trend.”
Vivienne Mackinder.
