Prior to a career in hairstyling, Sophia competed in national dance and trampolining competitions up until the age of 14 when a job as a Saturday assistant at a local Northampton salon ignited the flame of interest in all things hair! She has now got 10 years’ experience under her belt, moving to London at 17 to follow her dreams!
Sophia is our Curl Specialist, and her confident personality coupled with a real interest in her clients’ story helps our curly-haired customers feel happy and positive about their hair, rather than reaching for the straighteners! She loves to ‘think outside the box’ and try new ways of styling and make up – an obsession that developed from a young age, practicing makeovers on family members and watching ’10 Years Younger’ on television with her Mum!
As an ambassador for Curlformers® from HairFlair, Sophia has made several appearances on stage including Pro Hair Live in Manchester and Salon International London. Particularly memorable experiences include assisting Errol Douglas MBE with a live show in Australia in 2018 and working for Julien Macdonald’s London Fashion Week SS20 show held at Southwark Cathedral.
Although lockdown has proved difficult for many stylists as they were unable to work, Sophia used the time to rediscover her love of cooking and baking which was instilled in her at a young age by her grandma. She has also recently taken up jogging and says, ‘it has been great for my mental health; I haven’t really been physically active since I stopped dance and trampolining at 14’. We’ll keep our eye on you for an eventual London Marathon entry, Sophia!
