How did you start?
I’d had a fascination with hair from a very early age. I started out as a Saturday boy at my local salon “Blue Rinse” in Castle Bromwich.
Why did you decided to open a salon of your own?
I always planned on opening my own salon by the time I hit thirty, but I knew I needed to learn, make mistakes and gain valuable knowledge working with some of the UK’s leading hair brands (including TONI&GUY, Vidal Sassoon, Regis and Saks) first, before I ventured out on my own to create “my perfect salon”. I was also encouraged by my Nan who always said “Son, I can see your name up in lights”.
What was the best bit of advice you received when growing up?
My parents always believed in me and really pushed me to achieve my goals. The best advice was to ‘always be yourself, but always remain professional’.
Talk to us about your new #one photoshoot…
We – the 6S Art Team and I – wanted to create a leading edge shoot that could be translated into the everyday. We wanted to showcase some of this season’s hottest trends in cut and colour, but wanted to do this on real people rather than professional models as we wanted to reinforce the point that these styles can look great on anyone and everyone. We’ve seen men and women transform before our very eyes with the right haircut and an incredible hair colour, so we hope your readers will find our collection inspirational.
What are your aspirations for the brand?
To be recognised and respected for not only the fantastic work that we do with hair; but also the salon. I want Sixth Sense to be known as “a salon for everyone where every customer is 100% happy with their service”.
