I was born in Lancaster, England and I live in live New York
At the earliest stage of my career, I joined Vidal Sassoon in England and very soon thereafter was teaching students from around the world in the academies in London and Manchester. I began travelling globally, teaching and creating collections as part of the Sassoon Artistic Team. My destinations included Paris, Milan, Prague, Lisbon, Puerto Rico and Mexico City, to name just a few.
I left the UK and moved to San Francisco when I was asked to run the creative side of the newly launched Vidal Sassoon salon and simultaneously open a school where I taught the legendary Vidal Sassoon technique. It was wildly successful and a truly engaging experience but New York was where I felt I would thrive the most. Before long, Allure Magazine named me best haircutter NYC and Esquire Magazine credited me as best Men’s hair expert.
Following my time at Vidal Sassoon, I began working with one of the most prominent and prestigious hairstylists in NYC, John Barrett. I became the Education Director and Senior Stylist in his Bergdorf Goodman location where I expanded my skill set. After 8 wonderful years I ultimately knew that it was time to fully realize my own potential and I opened my acclaimed Gramercy boutique studio.
Always looking to grow, my passion for beauty in hair took another new direction. I studied to become a licensed Trichologist and in conjunction with my regular clientele, I introduced into my studio, a very special private health and wellness area dedicated to helping women experiencing hair loss. The studio offers solutions to issues pertaining to alopecia, trichotillomania, hormonal hair loss and hair loss due to the effects of chemo, to name a few. Together, my long standing expertise in hairstyling and fashion, combined with my knowledge as a licensed Trichologist I offered much sought after solutions for all issues related to hair loss. This coupled with my qualified support and understanding make my clients feel amazing.
Now...After 11 years of owning a successful salon in Manhattan, I decided to join forces with other expert licensed practitioners in the health and wellness space and joined the community at The Parlor www.theparlornyc.com It’s a state-of-the-art facility for best in class professionals providing the very best care across the board. You can find me at The Parlor 160 Madison Avenue, Suite 37.
