How many years hairdressing as a Barber/Stylist?
Hairdresser for 5 years
Style or type of training?
Trained in Rebel Rebel and Vidal Sassoon. My cutting style is a bit like Edward scissor hands.
What’s would you say is your speciality (cuts and/or colours)?
Specialities- I'd say anything except long hair. If you've got long hair, you're not welcome in my chair. Only joking. But seriously.
What are your interests, and/or passions?
Well I work 50-60 hours a week in the salon and do another 10-15 homers per week, plus I got to the gym 5 times a week, so I'm not left with much spare time. With the limited free time I have, I co-own an illegal pop up shop, selling vintage moustache combs and sex toys.
What type of client should come to you and why?
The type of client who should come to me is a man who likes his hair the way he likes his woman ... Low maintenance and shaven.
Why did you want to become a Hairdresser or Barber?

I wanted to be become a hairdresser because those six weeks I spent on a law degree nearly tipped me over the edge!
Who’s your ultimate hair icon?
My ultimate hair icons are the bosses of Rebel Rebel, Alan and Colin. I based my hairstyle on theirs.
If you could feature in a magazine what would it be?
Magazine - the digger
Previous salons you worked in that you might want to mention?
Rebel Rebel was the first salon I ever worked in and I couldn't imagine working anywhere else. It's a huge Cliche but it really doesn't feel like a job. I've done some awful jobs in the past and I genuinely feel very lucky to be a part of Rebel Rebel.
What’s your favourite professional tool and why?
My favourite tool is my wireless super tapers. Cause I f*cking hate wires!
What type of styling hair product is indispensable?
Styling product - rough rider. When in doubt, get it out.
What error do people often make when it comes to their hair?
I think the biggest error that people make with their hair is trying to copy David beckham... You don't take a fiesta to a mechanic and tell ask him to make it look like a Bentley.
Sum up your personality in the length of a tweet….?
My personality in a tweet "I'll be at the bottom having fun"
