Simplicity and Strength

Powerful and Strong

“This is from my winning Afro Hairdresser of the Year collection, which is called Empower. I love working with texture and using it to create lots of shapes and silhouettes.”

Technical Skill

“I love this image as it represents the technical work and skill required to lighten such a dark natural base, yet it is still toned with such a delicate and soft tone.”

Natural Beauty

Robert Eaton 5

“I am always drawn towards natural soft, beautiful and touchable hair and this epitomises everything about what natural waves should be. It was created for my first campaign with Hot Tools and it was shot by Jack Eames.”

Style and Expertise

“This is an image of our salon’s winning L’Oréal Colour Trophy model in 2011. I art directed our Leeds team to create this look and I feel it represents everything our brand stands for – style, beauty and expertise.”

“I created this hair for a show at the Wella TrendVision Awards last year. The show was called Celestial. I loved the imagery from the show as the production was so strong and it really enabled us to create beautiful editorial inspired looks.”
