How long have been with mcIntyres?

I have been a stylist for 2 and a half years and part of mcIntyres family for 4 and a half years. 2 years of apprenticeship and 2 and a half years on the floor as a stylist. 

I had no hairdressing background before mcIntyres. I always had an interest in hairdressing so took it upon myself to go for it. I was very lucky to be part of a salon that offers their own training academy and learning on the job. 

What’s your specialism?

I would say I specialise in colour, mainly balayage and creative colours. Purely through a lot of practice. 

What’s your greatest achievement while at mcIntyres?

I would say getting my qualifications to be a hairstylist through mcIntyres Academy would definitely be my number one achievement. Also just putting a smile on my clients faces at the end of their appointment, knowing you’ve made them feel that extra bit special. 

What are your hairdressing ambitions? 

My ambitions are to eventually enter a competition and compete with other stylists all round the country.

Who are your hairdressing heroes?

My hairdressing heroes are Chris Appleton (purely because he is Kim K’s stylist) and of course the boss lady herself, Kay McIntyre. 

What’s your party trick/secret talent?

I don’t know if this counts as a talent but I can word for word quote almost every episode of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ due to serious binge watching. They’re my fave gals.
