What is your favourite part of being a colourist? When it’s someone’s first time colouring their hair, or they have been elsewhere and not got what they wanted. I listen to them, try to put them at ease, talk them through the process and answer any questions. Then we swatch the colours and it becomes a collaboration (“make this purple a little more blue, shear this pink out a bit”) to get just the right shades and tones. When a client tells me that their hair looks just how they imagined, it makes me so happy.
Can you tell us about your hair relationship with your partner Kate Moross? How long have you been colouring her hair? Kate and I have been together for nearly 7 years so I’ve been doing her hair since then. She used to let me experiment on her long before I started colouring professionally. It’s always fun because Kate lets me do whatever I want (as long as it’s cute and bright) but she’s a terrible model as she can’t sit still!
