Graduate Stylist

19 Year old Chelsea has been part of the SDB team for 3 years.We caught up with her one VERY busy Friday…

Q. Chelsea what do you love about your work? 
A. EVERYTHING!! I always wanted to work at SDB and it has been everything I hoped it would be. I love learning so much on a day to day basis and two days are never the same.

Q. What is your favourite aspect?
A. I adore long hair work - especially Prom hair and Bridal.We take part in the Heart FM wedding show twice a year where we meet new brides to be and demonstrate our work. We do the hair for the main bridal fashion show too which I love doing.

Q. Do you do all types of hairdressing?
A. Yes I am trained in Level 2 NVQ hairdressing which covers most aspects of hair- I am currently training in my level 3 which is more advanced. I am trained in Hair Extensions too which is one of my main job roles.

Q. Do you wear extensions yourself?
A. I couldn't imagine life without them!! No seriously- they give my hair so much body and length. I wear the Balmain Double hair - my hair has grown so much whilst wearing them that soon I will only need them for the body.

Q. What are you aims for the future?
A. I would like to become a senior Stylist at SDB and particularly specialise in Bridal hair and Extensions- I feel I really make a difference to people when I give them the hair they have always dreamed of- whether its for their wedding day or to give them confidence everyday.

 Fran is currently in her advanced training in cutting, colour and smoothing treatments and loving every minute! " I want to learn as much as i can and push myself to become the best hairdresser i can be." Says Fran 
"I particularly love Cutting hair- its amazing how the right haircut enhances someones features and makes them look younger" 

Fran loves to colour hair - especially highlights... "Blonde highlights are becoming very popular now the summer is here" Says Fran " I am currently taking part in Balayage highlight training which is where the blondes melt into one another rather than streaks of blonde- its really beautiful"

Meet TARA...

Tara is 19 years old with a HUGE passion for hair, Make up and vintage style. Tara is our Head assistant, who looks after 4 assistants and 6 Saturday team members. Here she tells us about her work…

                                                                               Q. How did you get into hairdressing? 
I always have wanted to become a hairdresser. I got a job at a salon after I left school but had my haircut at Silhouette du Barry- it was always my dream salon to work in ! I applied to work there and after 2 attempts I got to my second interview and they offered me a job!

 Q. Do you look after clients everyday? 
Yes as a second year apprentice I look after clients a lot- everything from colours to extensions to blow-drys. From this year I am on the long hair and Bridal team so will be working with my Senior Stylists on Weddings and looking after girls for their Prom hair in the summer. I feel I am at my best making clients feel relaxed and looked after.

Q. How do you see your future?
I would love to train young hairdressers and work as a senior stylist at the salon. My passion is Hair Extensions and Creative Colouring so I would really love to enter British colour technician of the year one day. My Boss Nathan has been nominated for a Eastern hairdresser of the year 4 times!

Q. What are your ambitions?
To work in Fashion shows in New York, Milan and Paris like my Bosses do. I would love to work more with hair extensions, wigs and hairpieces as I have a real passion for that kind of hairdressing. I really think the most exciting thing about hairdressing is that it is so diverse and you can branch out into different areas and travel the world!

Tara is currently offering blowdries for just £10 at the Salon.
