Hilton admits that she was initially hesitant to open a salon, thinking that it would mean “you wouldn’t be able to be creative and just be stuck with all the paperwork”. The salon’s name was born when, speaking with her husband about the idea, Hilton decided that if she was to open a salon it couldn’t just be ‘another salon’. “The name really was the start of all the ideas” she says. Hilton is passionate about education and the ‘Not Another’ concept now includes Not Another Academy, based around teaching the techniques used at the salon. Masterclasses include ‘Freehand Balayage’ and ‘The Perfect Bleed’. She and her husband have also founded Not Another Charity, a hairdressing school in Madagascar. It was something Hilton intended to do since she first volunteered in Ghana aged 21. “It changed my life. I was adamant that I wanted to do it again using the skills I had acquired as a hairdresser” she explains, “so I took a load of scissors with me, found contacts and in the end, we managed to get a course running”. This charitable ethos also extends to the London salon, with 10% of all profits being donated to charity. We sat down with Hilton to discuss what’s in store for the future.
