CharlieStyle Director
I started my hairdressing career straight from school in a salon in Knightsbridge, London. I was fortunate enough to attend the Daniel Galvin academy where I learned a variety of different skills from the industries best. I have gained NVQ L2&3 in ladies hairdressing and NVQ L2 in Barbering. Always trying to update my skills and knowledge; attending hair and fashion events when ever possible to keep me up to date with the latest trends. I have recently attended some colour courses in London and cannot wait to get to use my new skills.
I love my job and love making people feel great about themselves, I have met some amazing people and done some crazy, brilliant things along the way (head shaved for charity! Haircuts for the homeless).
Alanis-1 Meet The Team
AlanisSenior Stylist
Hairdressing is a family profession and I cant remember a time I didn’t want to be a hairdresser. Growing up and watching my mum Sara is what inspired me to become a hairdresser.

I have recently just finished a five month winter season in Verbier, Switzerland working for a five star award winning hair salon, styling all kinds of clientele across the world.

You wear your hair everyday, it’s our main accessory, so I love to know that I have made each of my clients feel good about themselves, that’s what makes my day and that’s why i became a stylist.

I have been hairdressing since the day I left school. I knew from a young age I wanted to be behind a chair making people feel and look amazing through their hair. I have worked in the industry for 5 years building my knowledge and confidence every day. I’ve attended numerous hair courses throughout those years, including a balayage/ombré master class, barbering, and product knowledge. My aim is to make you feel comfortable and completely satisfied with your hair through the perfect consultation.
