"My passion for hairdressing began 20 years ago whilst trekking through south East Asia. After training and working as a chef for a few years the buzz of interacting with different people grabbed me and I have never looked back. A person's haircut is extremely personal and being a part of making someone look and feel good about themselves is wonderful and makes my job special. When I am not in work I enjoy going to the gym, plus taking care of my appearance. From working in some of the best salons in York, I have built a very loyal clientele. Look forward to seeing you soon."
