Essex hair stylist reaches final for hairdressing award

The Essex Salon Awards recognises outstanding hairdressing talent in the local Essex area. Shelby’s entry stood out due to her vibrant and diverse hair shades and it’s a testament to her exceptional colouring techniques and unwavering passion.

Our salon owner Raymond is so pleased for Shelby.

“Watching Shelby grow into a great hairdresser has been so rewarding for me. Throughout her career Shelby has demonstrated a passion and skill beyond her years and as the Salon Director, there is no greater feeling than seeing your team grow into something truly special.”

Shelby has also been praised for her professional ability to transform her client’s hair.

“I absolutely LOVE this salon… this time around I had a full head of highlights, cut & blowdry with Shelby… I am SO in love with it. My hair is problematic at times and this was the first time ever that my blowdry lasted for longer than a day. I promise I’ll be back soon!”
