The Best of 2014

As another year comes to a close I look back on what I've done and achieved and the fun I've had! This year has been exciting for me for several reasons, one of them being that I've branched out into other areas of hair and make-up that have given me the opportunity to go to exciting places and see exciting things. I'd also like to thank all of my clients. I couldn't do my dream job without you! Here is a quick round up of some of my favorite moments (not all can be included!).


It was an honor to be a part of this shoot, styling hair for vintage haute couture expert William Vintage for To see the full shoot click here.

Beehive Tutorial with Melon Lady, Helen Anderson

It was a lot of fun to film this tutorial with Helen. Helen has amazing hair to style. I was so happy seeing her fans all over the world re-create this style in a competition we ran. To watch the full tutorial click here.


I was thrilled to be asked to come and do male grooming with Ellie Cain on the Topman Christmas shoot. I always love working with Ellie and you will hopefully see her with me a bit more this year.

Wig Restoration Challenge

 I enjoyed coming to the rescue when I was asked to rejuvenate these wigs that are part of the Fabulous 1950's Fashion exhibition at The Bridewell Museum

Upside down with Gizzi Erskine and Space NK

Earlier this year I was set a challenge when I had to create a beehive that would withstand being upside down. Gizzi Erskine created a fun video as part of Space NK's Beauty Council.

Wella Colour Competition Finals

 I was so proud to be the make-up artist for Sophie Morter at Flint who got through to the Finals of the Wella Colour Competition. This is a huge achievement for any hairdresser and I was so happy to be part of this. The finals were unbelievable in terms of the show and very impressive. I sure won't be forgetting this in a hurry! Last photo by Joanna Millington.

The Sunday Beauty School

Of course I cannot forget to mention The Sunday Beauty School. I cannot tell you how exciting it is for me to pass on my skills to others and see them work wonders with their own hair. I am in debt to my business partner Emily Turnbull of LoveMoi Makeup who has been a source of advice, wisdom, support and hilarity throughout our journey of putting the school together. More news of what is to come soon...

I think 2015 is going to be busy year. Bring it on. I'm ready. Thank you again and a Happy New Year to you all!
