Hi, I am Sara, part owner of Purdy and Power. I have 20 years experience in all aspects of hairdressing including perming and barbering. I can style your hair for special occasions ie weddings, proms and balls. I love a challenge especially when it comes to colouring since becoming a Wella master colourist a few years ago. My aim is for you to leave the salon feeling happy and confident with your hair, it is your crown after all!

JackSenior Stylist
Hey! I’m Jack, a Senior Stylist at Purdy and Power and have been here since 2012! I’m a Kérastase Ambassador, NVQ 3-qualified, and currently between here and London’s Wella World Studio on the Master Colour Program. I can’t wait to graduate and join Sara in becoming a Master Colourist, exciting! You can find me in the salon Tuesday – Saturday for a fresh ‘do!
LilySenior Stylist
I joined the hairdressing industry in 2009. I completed my NVQ level 1 and 2 in a salon in Tenterden, where I worked for just 2 years. I then moved on to work for celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward in Chelsea, London, and worked there for 4 years, where I found my love for creating the perfect blow-dry! I am a trained Kerastase ambassador and have recently refreshed my hair extension training by qualifying with Beauty Works. This means I can now offer 4 different methods of hair extensions to suit your hair and lifestyle. I can do all aspects of hairdressing, including balayage, perming and working with Afro/Caribbean hair.
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.
