Hi my name’s Kelly May, the Raymond Bottone “Newbie” fresh from London. After working in London for over 12 years I was looking for a change and this salon ticked all my boxes. I was particularly drawn by the friendly team of creative and passionate hairdressers. There’s a real buzz around the place.
I love the creative side of hairdressing. Taking the latest runway trends and making them wearable for my clients is what gives me the biggest thrill. I was privileged to be asked to join the L’Oreal Professionnel ID Artist team and also be a London ID Artist – a personal dream come true. It was fantastic fun on the team and I learnt so much, taking part in shows, competitions and being mentored by some of the best in the industry – a truly amazing journey to develop my skills and knowledge.
Working so closely with the cream of the hair industry ensures my clients enjoy the latest techniques in colour and cutting combined with the season’s must-have fashions. Making clients look and feel fabulous is all part of that Raymond Bottone red carpet experience. I particularly love hair-up and working with brides. For me there is nothing more rewarding then seeing a bride smiling and confident on her special day.
I confess to being a Marvel geek and have a love of all things 1950s and vintage. When I am not busy cutting and perfecting hair, you will find me in the kitchen baking up a storm singing along to ‘Hello Dolly’ or Calamity Jane.
