WHEN/HOW/WHY DID YOU GET INTO HAIRDRESSING?

At the age of 14 in the early 80s I found a career which would become my life. I was given the chance of being a Saturday boy by a friend’s mum, as he was too embarrassed to and I was too skint not to. Remarkably, I felt at once this was the job for me, skilled, artistic and sociable. The fact you were able to make a person look and feel amazing has never left me.
