Raised in England, I began in 1986 as a salon assistant at Boys Salon on the Reguliersdwarsstraat in Amsterdam, and finished after three years as Stylist. During this period, I achieved with Vidal Sassoon in London my diplomas in Ladies Styling, Mens Styling & Shaving and Coloring. I completed this period with the advanced academy for hairstylists.
After working at several major hairdressing salons in the Netherlands, and an adventure as a top stylist and salon manager on an international cruise ship, I opened up my first salon on the Looiersgracht in Amsterdam Jordaan. Here I worked with much pleasure until 2016. After selling this salon, I opened up my new salon on the Nieuwe Passeerdersstraat 10 in Amsterdam in January 2016. There I work with a team of independent hair specialists.
