"Ever since I could remember I wanted to be a hairdresser. My passion as a salon owner & hairdresser is creating a salon that is friendly & fun to visit & work in. I’m convinced that bringing out the best in people depends on a relaxed & friendly atmosphere. That’s what we try to create at enigma.
Having trained locally after leaving school, I worked aboard on the ‘Steiner’ cruise liners, & managed several hair salons for ‘Alan Paul’ (now owned by Regis).
I’m still passionate about acquiring & maintaining excellent hairdressing & customer service skills, having attended numerous courses over the years, including Vidal Sassoon, Toni & Guy, L’Oreal, Paul Mitchel & Charles Worthington.
I believe that regular education is paramount to maintaining a focused positive team."
