Who Do Hairdressers Trust to Cut Their Own Hair?
Have you ever wondered who cuts their hair of the top hairdressers in the industry? From the sleek style of HJ‘s British Hairdresser of the Year Sally Brooks, to the curly locks of Patrick Cameron, we asked hairdressers to reveal who they trust to chop their tresses.
“As a hairdresser we all know that getting your own hair done is the biggest headache! I usually get my hair cut in about 10 minutes. Luckily I only have about three hairs! For me, it’s a matter of getting it washed, sitting down and whoever is free literally gets 10 mins to cut off the bottom and put it back into shape. I’m lucky because we have amazing hairdressers in our salon, so I’m not fussy about who cuts my hair. I am also known to randomly cut bits off myself when my client is being washed! As a grey-haired person my roots are more of an issue, but I trust anyone in the salon to do them for me.”
“Curly-haired people are often cautious about getting their haircut. When they find a hairdresser they bond with they stick with them. I am no different – my artistic director Marco Erbi has been my hairdresser for over 25 years. He listens and either interprets my requests perfectly or he might say ‘let’s try something new’ and creates a fantastic style that suits me. Finding the right hairdresser is so important. I’m so lucky I have found the best!”
“Quite often I cut my own hair or I enlist the help of my curl specialist in Karine Jackson Hair & Beauty.”
“This is a question I get asked all the time on set! The answer is my assistant Hannah Harrison. We worked in a salon together in Liverpool and then both made the move to London. Hannah is a really talented colourist and works at Bleach London in Soho. Like most session stylists I find it hard to make the time to get your own hair done. I’m that annoying client that is either really last minute booking an appointment or the one that has to cancel if a job comes in.” Patrick Wilson
“Wayne Washington from Trevor Sorbie cuts my hair. He’s a close friend of mine and every minute we are together it’s a scream! Even throughout my haircut we never stop laughing and he knows what I want every time.”
“James Bickmore from my salon Rose & Wild has been cutting my hair for about a year and a half now. Prior to that I was chipping bits of myself, but when you do that for too long it gets out of shape and dry! I should have known that!”
“Emma Jane Fraser cuts my hair. She is the art director in my salon, she’s fabulous and she is also a Schwarzkopf Colour Master! She does thee best fringes.”
