Meet Jodie

Hi Jodie

Hi Courtney

You’ve just joined us for Saturdays only but quite a lot of people are quite excited by your return?

Yes, I started at Toni and Guy with a lot of the team and quite a few of Catherine’s clients where actually with me before so its been lovely to see some old faces.

What age did you decide you wanted to get in to hairdressing?

I started as a Saturday girl, I think around about 14.

How long have you been doing it?

I think it’s been about 26 years now!! Oh, god that makes me sound old, let’s go with vintage

How did you get started?

It actually started because I wanted a pair of Levi jeans and my mum told me I had to go and get a job, thankfully I ended up loving it and I’m still at it.

What’s your number one hair care tip?

Ha don’t ever piss your hairdresser off; those scissors can be a weapon.

Oh God, I’ll keep that in mind!
Who’s your hair idol?

Brigitte Bardot, love her hair.

What hair product could you not live without?

Hairspray, I’m a complete hair spray girl. I do love the texturizing volume spray as well though, I use it on most clients.

What’s your favourite hair service that you currently offer?

I love doing a big blow dry, especially when its for an event for the client, it can really lift an outfit and a mood.

What’s the next big thing in hair trends?

I think big fringes are going to be coming back in this summer.

What do you like to do outside of work?

Yoga, yoga and more yoga. I go to India quite regularly to study and this year when I go I’m going to be assisting my teacher.

Best moment or greatest achievement in your career?

I assisted Guido Palau for fashion week quite a few times in London and Paris which was an amazing experience. I also was part of the team that did the hair in 2007 for Dancing on Ice, long days but that was a load of fun.

Where do you want your career to take to take you?

I’d love to go back to fashion week, may be do new York next time.

And finally any last words?

Om shanti, shanti, shanti (Peace, peace, peace).

So there you have it, Jodie is with us most Saturdays and if you’re lucky she might even show you one or two of her (yoga) moves.
