I started out working in hair 25 years ago, where I was based at Saks for a large amount of years. I eventually opened my own salon, and that is when Halo was born. During my years of hairdressing, I’ve gained myself a very special and loyal which I’ve had the privilege of seeing them through all their major life events, such as first haircuts and prom hair all the way through to their wedding hair and now their offspring’s first haircuts. I’ve always been passionate about hair, and giving my clients an experience that leaves them wanting more and it is very much the satisfaction of seeing the glow I see in my clients after an appointment with myself that keeps me motivated and my passion alive.
After, spending years working at Saks, in which time I became a senior colour technician and fully qualified stylist, I decided then it was time to branch out, that’s when I came to Halo. My passion lays within colouring hair, the bigger the transformation the better. Nothing inspires and motivate me more than empowering women to feel better about themselves through their hair and knowing I played a large role in recreating someone’s self-confidence and I think my heart will always belong to colour. I also write all the Halo blogs for the salon, trying to give out the best advice or knowledge to keep our clients looking amazing away from the salon.
I am currently working towards my NVQ in hairdressing with Saks Education. Since I can remember, I’ve always found excitement in playing and styling other people’s hair, whether it be curling or plaiting. I am finding my NVQ training rewarding, and feel like my skills are only flourishing and strengthening. I can’t wait to qualify and put all I have learnt to use and showcase it on my own clients.

I’ve worked within the industry for 20 years, and back when I first started training with Toni and Guy I was heavily influenced by fashion statements and trends. I love getting to know my clients through consultation and helping them put the pieces together to create their own unique look. I thoroughly enjoy creating fashion colours, such as brighter vivid colours and unicorn-esque pastel tones, I think there’s no better way to express your personality than through your hair!
I am currently working towards my NVQ in hairdressing with Saks Education. I previously attended college to achieve a hair qualification, but realized a few months in that I wanted something more hands on and salon based. I’m a confident bubbly personality, and it felt wasted confide to a class room every day. I love interacting with clients, watching the stylists work their magic whilst I pick up the tricks of the trade. I can apply colour, and I am now a colour technician in the salon, meaning I get more time to connect with clients and I contribute to the finished look which is something I’m proud of.
NELSON - THE BOSS
I am a fully qualified hair stylist at Halo. I first kick started my flare for hairdressing at home, I would often watch tutorials of hair ups at home and practice them on my friends and family, soon after this I took the plunge and got my first salon job at Halo. From this my talent only grew, and once I got my qualification, I was pretty much unstoppable. I enjoy every aspect of my job, but still remain loyal to hair up’s and love doing bridal parties and prom season. I recently progressed to the next stage in my career, and I am now also salon manager.
After undergoing extensive training with Jessica nails, I came to work at Halo. I took on studying nails whilst still working as an accountant, I have always had a deep rooted passion for all things beauty related, and finally after starting my own family had the opportunity to delve into working within a salon and breath life into my dream. I’ve always loved spending my personal time being beautified, and often spent my spare time scrolling through Instagram admiring other people’s nails and other beauty treatments. Now I’m finally working in a salon, I can become one of them people that create work other aspiring beautician admire. I love educating my clients on all the different nail services I have on offer, and advising them on which route would be best for them to go down.
