Meet the Team
I started my career 29 years ago in Newcastle upon Tyne in the north east of England. I obtained my City and Guilds at Gateshead College. I started working for a high end salon in Newcastle called Barry n Bobby’s, sadly no longer there, mixing with the stars, footballers, models, all glamour, giving the best experience from a very young age, starting from the bottom and working my way up.
Working in hairdressing has taught me a lot over the years, and experience, managing salons and also owning my own salon for 10 years. My passion is hair, creating and making people fell their best from walking in the door to walking out looking and feeling amazing. When I left the north-east I went to London to manage an Aveda salon, an organic brand which comes from the earth and also help third world countries with work and also to give them clean, fresh running water.
I got an opportunity to move to Gibraltar and was offered a job in a local salon and start a new beginning and lifestyle.
An amazing opportunity arrived after working here for five years which has led me to where I am today, to run a new Aveda salon becoming a Manager Director Stylist for Chic Hair Salon. Exciting times, my passion grows more for the art of hair and well being.

I love to make people look and feel beautiful about themselves inside and out. I first completed a hairdressing course in Morocco gaining my qualification. When I moved to Gibraltar I then enrolled in an academy in La Linea for two years to gain my qualifications there also. I have worked hard to achieve my ambition of being a hairdresser and I am continuing my education within the Aveda brand.
I have had a passion for hairdressing since a very young age. I have worked in three local hairdressers in Gibraltar as a junior hairstylist. I have now enrolled in the Marbella Academy of Beauty to achieve the qualifications needed to grow in this industry. I am also receiving training through Aveda. I am very excited for the future and hope to grow as a stylist and teamworker.
