It’s time to meet our stylist Emily who gives us the lowdown on what she loves about being a hairdresser…

Which styles or colours do you absolutely love doing?

It would be tough to decide – I love doing both styling and colouring. I like to keep up with the latest trends and recreating someone’s look by choosing the perfect hair style and hair colour to fit client’s face shape, skin tones, lifestyle and personality.

What do you love about being a hairdresser?

I love being able to please people It is always rewarding to see a client happy with their new look. I love working in a salon environment, every working day is different with meeting new people and creating a unique style for them. I love learning new things – as a hairdresser you are always learning throughout your career.

Which celebrity hair would you like to get your hands on and why?

I would like to do Michelle Keegan’s hair, I think she always looks gorgeous with any style she has. You could get very creative with her hair by changing the colour or styling it in all various ways. She is a popular fashion icon and a lot of people would get inspiration from the way she has her hair. 

Who or what inspires you to create fabulous hair?

I get inspired by fashion and my work colleagues. Fashion is always changing and it is good to keep up with it to see what the new look is for the season. My work colleagues inspire me because you can always learn from each other and everyone has their own way of creating a style.

If you had to live on a desert island, which three hair product items would you take with you?

Dry shampoo, L’Oréal beach waves spray, serum. 

What is your ultimate ambition?

To work my way up in the hairdressing industry and become a more experienced stylist at a more advanced level. I would also like to complete the L’Oréal Colour Trophy award. 

How would you describe yourself in three words?
