From my late teens I have always dreamt of owning my own hairdressing salon and here I am living the dream! I set up BOLTS hair and body in Axminster in 2005, and in 2012 went on to open BOLTS in Honiton. My career in hairdressing has spanned 20 years which started in barbering and then progressed to an intensive training programme with Toni & Guy. I have passed on my knowledge and all I have learned in the last 20 years to my fantastic team, which I feel really lucky to have on board.

These days I focus my time mainly on the business side of running the two salons. Being local, I can work from both salons and particularly love being in the buzzing salon environment meeting and greeting familiar faces!

When I'm not in the salons I love to spend my free time mountain biking in the glorious Devonshire countryside, swimming, walking the dog and entertaining my two young children!

I have been hairdressing for 8 years and am qualified to NVQ level 3. I love doing all aspects of hair, but thoroughly enjoy restyles, colour correction, ombré and advising clients on hair care.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my fiancé and family. Socialising with friends over dinner and at the cinema.

I have been in hairdressing since 2005 and I'm qualified to NVQ Level 2 and 3 in hairdressing and hold a qualification in gents barbering as well.

I have worked as a teacher and assessor as well as a Senior Stylist at Bolts, where I've been teaching hairdressing and barbering amongst other subjects in the South West. I realised that I had a passion for learning and teaching and went on to gain my assessors and teaching awards.

I am constantly working to improve my own skills as well as inspire others. I am currently training in a variety of extensions, permanent straightening, hair up and also working towards my next level progression in teaching. I use my experience to provide an excellent service to clients, tailoring to their individual needs achieving amazing results.

When not at work I like to practice Yoga, play Softball and enjoy hiking.

Since joining the team at Bolts I have felt like part of the team and everyone has made me feel comfortable from day one. I have always had a passion for hairdressing and now I'm finally able to fulfil my dream. So far I am really enjoying shampooing and blow drying, and I love that I can learn something new everyday. I am looking forward to developing my skills throughout my Apprenticeship and learning more at the Academy in Exeter.

In my spare time my hobbies are playing women's rugby, spending time with my family and going shopping!

I have been passionately involved within the Beauty Industry since I was 15 and have worked at Spas across Dorset, Somerset and Devon. I have 6 years experience and have gained recognition through World Skills, being one of the top 10 Beauty Therapists in the U.K 2015.

 

I joined the team at Bolts in April 17 and enjoy meeting new people, and through my work I like being able to make my clients happy and confident in their everyday lives.

In my spare time I like to spend time with my family, baking and eating lots of sweet treats!

Since joing the BOLTS team in December 2017, I have never felt so welcomed in a work place and so happy to be learning different styles from every person. I am continuously trying to improve my skills and learn new things to make me a good hairdresser when I qualify.

When I'm not at work I love to spend my time reading and listening to music whenever I can.
