For those of you that don’t know Sophie, she is our newest fully qualified Stylist here at CNG.
Yes I am and I love it, but I’m not new ha, I’ve been here for ages now.
So, lets get started….
What age did you decide you wanted to get in to hairdressing?
It was about the age of fourteen or fifteen I think, year ten at secondary school.
How long have you been doing it?
Six years in total now, I’ll have been at CNG for three years this June.
How did you get started?
I had previously done some work experience at a salon in the city centre and loved it so when it came to picking my options at secondary school I decided to attend the training school they had there. I started doing my colour training with Ruth from Toni and Guy.
What’s your number one hair care tip?
I always section my hair and blow-dry it forward from the crown, I just think it gives more volume around the face and a neater hairline.
Who’s your hair idol?
Oh, Amanda Seyfried has beautiful hair.
What hair product could you not live without?
I always have a bottle of the Therapy Protein cream in my kit. Oh, and Olaplex if I’m getting my hair coloured.
What’s your favourite hair service that you currently offer?
I’ve just been down to London for a Toni and Guy course and LOVED doing the bevel cuts, they are my favourite.
What’s the next big thing in hair/colour trends?
Rainbow roots, if you haven’t seen them yet google them.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I’m a big foodie so I love going out for meals with friends, family or my boyfriend. I go to Antibo’s near the train station quite a bit, their pizza is to ‘dye’ for (Get it?).
Best moment / greatest achievement in your career?
When I went down to London to collect my diploma, is given me so much more confidence in my skills.
Where do you want your career to take to take you?
Everywhere baby! Ha, I’d love to do more avant-garde hair, maybe behind the scenes at fashion shows or shoots.
And finally, any last words for everyone Soph?
Keep your hair beautiful baby!
And that’s all from Sophie, part time Hairdresser, part time Hippy!
