Martyn started out as a barber in a small Salon in the City of Leeds. He worked there for 3 years before being offered a position as Trainee Stylist at Vidal Sassoon in 1980. Martyn greatly enjoys teaching, having trained Sassoon stylists and apprentices in Toronto, New York, Boston and Chicago. He has also taught all levels in the Sassoon Academies in London, Los Angeles and Toronto.
Martyn has travelled extensively in his capacity as educator and Art Director: throughout Europe (Spain, Italy, France, Norway, Yugoslavia and England), as well as touring the Far East (Hong Kong, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore). As if that wasn’t enough, he has also worked all over the USA and Canada as well as South America and Argentina! “The best part of the job is working alongside interesting people from all points of our profession,” Martyn says. “In fact, my proudest professional moment was working alongside Vidal in the Far East.”
