How did you get into hairdressing? Hairdressing wasn’t always the plan – I actually started out studying music in Glasgow. After that the plan was to join the Marines. My brother was in the Royal Navy, my mum really wanted us to be in the forces because it was considered a good secure job. When I was about fifteen my mum started taking me to the local salon to have my hair cut, and I really enjoyed it there. I loved the creativity, the style and swagger of it all. One day my mum saw that they had a job going and the rest is history.
