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? All aspects of hairdressing from cutting, restyling and colouring to hair up, gents’ hairdressing and styling.
What do you love about being a hairdresser? Always learning, going on training courses to keep up with the trends of today – every day is different. I love spending time with my clients and getting to know their hair. I have clients who come from all across the world to see me, the furthest being Abu Dhabi !
What inspires you to create fabulous hair? The internet inspires me. I spend a lot of my free time researching fashion trends and celebrity hairdressers. Plus, product knowledge changes all the time, so I have to keep myself refreshed and one step ahead of the game.
How would you describe yourself in three words? Professional, experienced and passionate.
