Chloe, friendly salon hairdresser
MASTER STYLIST – Im Chloe! I have now been hairdressing since 2007 and it is very much still a huge passion for me!
I pride myself in making a relationship with my clients so he or she feels they can be forward with ideas, conversation or silence if that’s how you are feeling. A goal of mine is to not just to be professional but a friend, hair adviser, a sounding board to trust creating that bond, to offer the right products, to improve you hair and offer new style  ideas that reflect your personality and style.  Communication is key with your hairdresser, use pictures or even start with what you don’t like if you don’t know what you do want yet.
As hairdressers it is out job to listen and create that level of trust and communication so not only is it just a hair do but an experience as well!
I feel pretty blessed to have a career where I get to see friends everyday and make clients feel beautiful 🙂
