Angie, Colour Director, Senior Stylist, Notting Hill

What inspires you?
I take inspiration from fashion, health and lifestyle, photography, design and nature. I love to browse through personal blogs, design and architecture magazines.

What do you love about Notting Hill?
Well… the very relaxing and intimate atmosphere. Our team is super easy going and we all look after each other. The salon location, the table and chairs outside where we like to sit on sunny days while having a tea or lunch. Oh and Terry’s desserts of course!

What do you specialise in?
As a colour specialist, anything to do with colour! Particularly new techniques like freehand balayage, foilayage, colour melts/fades, colour changes.

Toning: I just love to create new shades for my customers so it never gets boring!

Bobs haircuts, fringes, beach waves, LA inspired waves, curly hair (as a curly head myself (: )

What’s great about working with hair organic products?
Just the overall care not only for humans hair, skin and health but also for animals and natural environment. I’ve been working with organic hair products for the last 2 years and first thing I’ve noticed was the difference of texture after colouring. I love the fact that organic products make possible colouring most hair types without over damaging it. The unique and innovative ingredients aligned with holistic care. Even highlighted hair feels 10 times better compared to normal high end products.

What do you think is the secret to having happy clients?
Most of all to actively listen. Listen to anything, engage and be present. I like to connect with people, make everyone comfortable and at ease.

Establishing trust. It would be hard to work in our industry without wanting to make others feel good and special!

Quality over quantity, spend that extra 10 minutes to make it perfect.
Be realistic and don’t over promise!

Tell us something unusual about yourself.
Despise the fact that I am very into my body combat and nutrition and you will never see me wearing a dress… one of my favourite movies of all times is still Pride and Prejudice! I am very classy on the inside, Sorry not sorry!
