Salon Manager & Consultant Joanne Russell has 25 years’ experience in the hairdressing industry. Here she tells us a little about herself...Which hair cuts, styles or colours do you love creating? I love all aspects of colouring and cutting, from natural to fashion colours, using different techniques from traditional foiling to free-hand painting for a natural sun-kissed blend. It’s not nice for clients when a colour goes wrong but I do love a colour correction - it makes us go back to the science of hair and think outside the box. Some clients would not believe the shades of colours we use to get the end results.Which services do you provide?
