Meet the Team

A little about me:

I have always had a passion and drive for this industry.

A quote I have always enjoyed is “you are only as good as your last haircut”.

Quality is what I love, and want all our guests to enjoy the salon experience.  I appreciate feedback as this helps me educate myself and the team.

I started my journey of owning my first salon at the age of 21.

I worked hard to build my knowledge and expertise. A further two salons followed.

Three salons were proving more strenuous, so I chose to educate instead and took a post at Colchester Institute as a hairdressing lecturer.

I missed the salon too much, and decided to concentrate on The Hair Factory alone.

I love nothing more than making people look and feel amazing, my passion is still as strong today as it was the first day I started this wonderful career.

I have had the privilege of working alongside some outstanding stylists, and some of those are still with me today.

So take a look and meet my creative team.





I have 20 yrs plus of salon experience. I’m passionate about my work and enjoy the challenge everyday brings.

I enjoy all aspects of hair, although my guilty pleasure is definitely colour.

I love nothing more than pushing the boundaries and experimenting with looks.

Some of my ideas, knowledge and skills come from training seminars and other stylists.

We have a great team with high standards and professionalism. We have an understanding and thoughtful boss, we also have fun in the salon.

Julie encourages us to perfect our skills, is proud of us as a team and what we can achieve. Trying to push the boundaries of a constant evolving industry.

I have had the privilege of working in a few salons developing my craft.

I love a bouncy blow-dry and creating stunning hair colours and finishes.

Hairdressing is about being creative and expressive and that’s exactly what I want. Education, finding my future self and having fun!

My team and boss are so supportive and motivate me to be the best I can be.

The team is beyond words, we work together as a unit and never fail to keep one another motivated and positive.  They are not only my team but a second family.





I have a lot of experience and a variety of clientele which allows me to have a broad knowledge of hairdressing. I specialise in cuts and finishes of all types.

I still learn everyday, I enjoy watching online hairdressing tutorials. There is so much to learn.

The salon is a very peaceful place to work and continue my career.

I love exercise and Road cycling is my happy place, to be outside in such a beautiful countryside feels great.

The people I work with every day, they’re amazing hairdressers and People.

I enjoy talking to clients and learning something new every day.

I’m looking forward to becoming an awesome hairdresser.

In the future I would like to travel the world and develop my skills more.
