Nathan – Salon Owner
People would probably say I’m like a puppy with a lot of energy and a real hunger for living life to the full. I don’t do things by halves, and have always dreamt of owning my own salon – to be honest I have to pinch myself every day that my dream came true!
What gets you out of bed in the morning? – The people! It’s a pleasure to come to work and spend time with such an eclectic group; both the team and our amazing clients!
What do you love the most in hairdressing? – Cutting is my speciality, especially cool textured cuts! Saying that, nothing beats the satisfaction of pairing a great cut with beautiful seasonal colour.
Life before Energy Hair – Before opening the salon in 1998 I had the pleasure of working for some of the best hairdressers in the country and was part of the L’Oréal art team. I gained a lot of experience quickly which inspired me to go and set up on my own!
When I was four I wanted to be a hairdresser when I grew up, now I am grown up and I’m a hairdresser, how lucky am I!
What gets you out of bed in the morning? – Knowing I am going to be paid for doing what I love the most, with a team that feels like family!
What do you love the most in hairdressing? – I really enjoy putting my own personal style into hairdressing. I am passionate about cutting because it gives me the biggest opportunity to be individual, and give my clients a style that is truly unique.
Life before Energy Hair – I have grown up at Energy Hair, been here for over 10 years and loved every minute.
What is the best thing about Energy Hair? – I am definitely the wild one and never stop talking, Nathan and the family have embraced me from day one and brought out the best in me!
Whether I am training for a marathon or training junior hair stylists, I find the results so much more worthwhile when you have enjoyed the journey to get there!
What gets you out of bed in the morning? – As well as being a stylist I am the Education Director at the salon. I am really passionate about teaching our trade and love the process of coaching the junior team until they are qualified, and can join me on the salon floor!
What do you love the most in hairdressing? – Transforming the colour of someone’s hair, or optimising their existing hair colour with highlights has to be the most satisfying part of my job!
Life before Energy Hair – I worked in a family run salon for 13 years where I started my journey as an educator. The move to Energy as a more established and larger salon has given me the opportunity to grow and progress both as an educator and as a stylist, which is the dream combination for me.
What is the best thing about Energy Hair? – There is just good feeling about Energy Hair that I was attracted to from the start, there is a positive can do attitude and a supportive family environment that I find is rare in businesses these days.
“I once cut the hair of James Bond’s stunt double, and have been lucky enough to style celeb hair for red carpet events in London! I love being adventurous with hair & am excited to start the next part of my hairdressing career in Devon!”
What gets you out of bed in the morning? – Before becoming a professional hairdresser I was always the one my family & friends would come to for hair styling or advice. An interest in hair has been in my blood since I was little, so since choosing a career in hair I feel lucky every day that I get paid to do what I love!
What do you love the most in hairdressing? – I am known for my fabulous beach-wave styling, and for my beautiful balayage! My passion is in styling whether that is a bouncy blow dry, or a wedding up-do. When working in London I was lucky enough to style red carpet events and fashion week models, so if you have a special event coming up and need some extra sparkle to your up-do I am your girl! Don’t be mistaken though I am also a trained colour technician and love experimenting with both natural and more bold vibrant tones!
Life before Energy Hair – I started my career as a retail manager on Oxford Street, London, and quickly learnt I love the buzz of being customer facing but hair is definitely where my passion lies! (and trust me if you have done a Black Friday sale on Oxford Street you can do anything!). Since then I have worked for Toni & Guy and Rush Hair in London, and am now ready to take that experience to the people of Devon!
What is the best thing about Energy Hair? – The salon environment is so welcoming and makes everyone feel at home; clients and staff! I also love how we are always pushing the boundaries of creativity with hairdressing, which I love as it means as a team we are all continuously improving and offering our clients new styles and hair care advice.
What hair products do you swear by? – I will never fall out of love with Olaplex, it really is magic potion for all hair types! The super formula dramatically reduces breakage, repairs damage and helps colour last longer! My other go to product is L’Oreal Tecni Art Density Material Wax Paste which is perfect for styling a final look, and particularly good for defining curls!
You can find me with a smile on my face, hoping to make others smile too!
What gets you out of bed in the morning? – That I am lucky enough to work in a beautiful salon that has a 5 star reputation for creating beautiful hair. I am a perfectionist so enjoying pushing myself to always achieve that 5 star service every time!
What do you love the most in hairdressing? – I specialise in highlights and creating balayage looks. I have a strong eye for detail and love making sure each individual highlight is in the right place to compliment my client’s look. The balayage is always a joy as the goal is to create a natural blended look, it has to be very bespoke to the client therefore no one is ever the same!
Life before Energy Hair – I have worked in various local salons hairdressing since I was 13. I have been fully qualified since I was 18, working with hair is quite literally the only thing I know how to do!
What is the best thing about Energy Hair? – The people here are truly special and there is a continuous drive for progression and improvement. This means everyone is always growing together, and our clients get the very best experience, it is a wonderful thing to be a part of!
What gets you out of bed in the morning? – Knowing I will get a chance to help someone feel and look amazing, have a good day, and most importantly feel confident! I believe great hair can definitely achieve that for a person!
What do you love the most in hairdressing? – My passion is all things balayage!! There is nothing better then a beautiful natural colour which requires minimum styling and upkeep. Alongside styling -if you love your hair curled I’m your girl!!
Life before Energy Hair – I have always wanted to work with hair, and started at Energy as soon as I could on Saturday’s age 14! I’ve been here for over 4 years and after qualifying with a distinction I cannot wait to now be a full time stylist on the salon floor!
What is the best thing about Energy Hair? – What I love about Energy is the family feel along side continuously learning new things from education training and from each other. We are all able to show our own specialities in our own ways!
“Working at Energy Hair is a dream come true! Doing what I love most , hairdressing and making people feel confident”
What gets you out of bed in the morning? – For me it’s knowing I’m going to make someone feel pampered and look gorgeous. Also the opportunity to learn new skills everyday because every client is different!
What do you love the most in hairdressing? – I love working in a creative industry that allows me to have fun achieving bespoke looks for each of my clients, painting hair, cutting it and styling the final look (including hair up), I love it all! If I had to pick a favourite part it would be colouring & shorter hair cuts.
Life before Energy Hair – Since a little girl I’ve always dreamed of being a hairdresser. I started at Energy Hair as a Saturday girl where my love for hair grew, as soon as I left school I was excited to start my apprenticeship at the salon, which started my dream career in hair! I will have completed my NVQ Level 2 in January 2023 and now can’t wait to officially start working as a stylist!
What is the best thing about Energy Hair? –The positive energy I get from clients and the team who have helped and guided me to where I am today!
