Owner Hannah has been passionate about hairdressing since she received her first barbie doll. The self taught stylist gave up her 10 year career in journalism to follow her dream.
After a decade of reporting the local and national news, travelling the globe from writing about the tsunami in India while living in a monastery to dancing in Dublin. Interviewing the likes of Girls Aloud to Gordon Brown, Hannah made the decision to begin her career in hair.
After gaining her NVQ Level 3, Hannah worked in Usk, ran a high end boutique in Abergavenny then found her home nestled in Gilwern.
She's also worked with world-renouned milliner Alison Todd, London designer Coco Fennell on magazine shoots, fashion shows and most recently for British designer Jayne Pierson's collection at Paris Fashion Week. As well as writing a regular column for online hair magazine ukhairdressers.com Hannah has been shortlisted as best hairdresser in the Welsh National Wedding Awards. She completed a distinction at the London School of Barbering in the art of the hot towel cut throat shave. Her flare for hair stems from her own mission in finding someone to cut her curly red mop. There's always 100 per cent professionalism, a little bit of OCD but always a giggle - and a cwtch!
