I have been in the industry for over 32 years - my hairdressing journey began when I trained at Morris Hair International in London, then worked locally in Bishop's Stortford in salons and freelance. In 1998 I managed a salon, which then led to me opening my own in 2002.
I have gathered lots of knowledge throughout the process including a Colour degree along with lots of colour modules in Redken, L’Oreal, Wella and Kevin Murphy and specialist cutting courses in styling and hair-ups.
Over the years, I’ve covered all aspects of hairdressing but have come to love hair colour correction the most! I do love putting things right. I’m also inspired by what products can do and the condition of the hair above all. I love running my business and inspiring my team to do their best in their field.
Hi, I’m Sophie and I’m the Salon Manager and Head Of House at Tisdalls Hair & Beauty. I have been here since February 2008. Before I joined the team at Tisdalls, I worked in the Sales and Marketing Team for KLM Airlines, managing many Travel Agency accounts and dealing with the public with the company’s frequent flyer scheme.
I really enjoy being head of house, greeting all our clients with a smile and making helping them with their appointments etc. I’m also kept very busy with attending to all the salon's paperwork, from ordering all the colours and products for the salon to managing our social media and promotions.
I have been hairdressing since early 2000 I qualified at NVQ level 2. I’ve completed many courses including a Vidal Sassoon cutting course, advanced colouring with Redken, L’Oreal, Wella and Kevin Murphy. I’m also qualified in hair extensions.
I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing - particularly men’s cutting. My favourite is cutting above all.
If I could get my hands on a celebrities hair it would be Victoria Beckham, she’s such a big fashion icon I’d love to be part of styling her hair. Also the Queen I’d love to update that set with a blow-dry.
I have been in the industry since 2002 - hairdressing has always been my passion and part of my life. I’m the third generation of hairdressing in my family. I passed my NVQ level 2 at Hertford regional college, where I also won an evening hairstyling competition and passed Goldwell colour course.
I then went on to work in H Salon in Epping as a Stylist. Here we had in-salon training weekly. I grew confidence and gained experience and was soon a senior hair designer. I then went onto manage a Salon for Sharon called James Montagu in this time I trained in Brazilian blow dry.
I have completed colouring courses with Redken, L’Oreal, Wella and Kevin Murphy. I also did a Lee Stafford cutting course for advanced cutting and Bob techniques. I visited Las Vegas and Iceland on business management and hairdressing course with Mary Queen of Shops as one of the lecturers.
I then took a couple of years out of the salon to have my 2 lovely children. I always kept my foot in the door and now work as a senior creative stylist here at Tisdalls. I’ve been back here since 2015 adding more hours to my work load. My main passions are cutting and colour.
I have been in the hairdressing industry since 2011 and I am constantly training and developing my skills.
I am the youngest hairdresser of the group, I moved here 2 years ago from Ireland, while at home I gained a level 3 diploma in all things hairdressing and also a level 3 diploma in bridal hair-up.
Since moving to London I have graduated as a session stylist (runway/photography work). I have also done training in the Wella studio London working alongside British hall of fame hairdressers in cutting, colouring and colour correction.
My passion as stylist is anything creative!
I have worked in the hair industry for over 30 years. During that time, I have attended numerous training courses and been extremely lucky to learn from some very talented individuals - including;Advanced Cutting Course - Jingles Precision Cutting Course - Vidal Sassoon Bleaching, Toning, Ombre & Highlighting Techniques Course - Matrix Madrid Colour Genius Course - Wella.
I took time out to raise my family and moved to Spain, where my next chapter began. In the 13 years I lived there I managed 2 salons where I worked with the TOWIE crowd, attended club openings and even made an appearance on breakfast TV!
I specialized in 'The Marbella Look' and was involved with a lot of charity work. I also managed D's in El Rosario which was my last project in Spain. Since returning, I've been in Islington homing my colour correction skills with Vidal Sassoon, which brings me to this present day.
I enjoy all aspects of hairdressing but if I had to choose, then long hair would win! Long layers, colours, the movement that colour adds, the finishes, big bouncy blows, highlights and ombre are my favourite methods of colouring, along with bleaching. Brazilian Blow Drys is another speciality, I'm always amazed by the results of this fantastic treatment.
Hair is a passion, which has reignited within me. I am looking forward to joining this incredibly talented Tisdalls Team.
