Why choose Sassoon

Sassoon training is globally recognised as the ultimate in hairdressing education, providing you with a passport to a successful career in the international hair world. We celebrate people with a passion for hair, and once you become a member of the Sassoon Team there are some incredible career paths that are open to you.
If you enjoy the high-energy atmosphere of a salon, the role of Creative Cutter or Colour Specialist could be for you - and in time you could become a Salon Director. Are you passionate about art and design, catwalk fashion and the avant-garde? If so, your career goal could be Creative Director, dreaming up future hair trends and demonstrating each season's new hair shapes on stages around the globe as a member of the Sassoon International Show Team. Or is your desire to become an Instructor, teaching in one of the prestigious Sassoon Academies located in some of the world's most exciting cities?

Whatever your dream, a career with Sassoon is the most foolproof way to make it come true.

WHEN DID YOU START YOUR CAREER AT SASSOON AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE SASSOON?


My route to Sassoon was not a conventional one. I studied software engineering at Strathclyde University and after 4 years of studies, I was lucky enough to secure a Sassoon apprenticeship in 2013.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?


The versatility - whether working in the salon, teaching the assistants (which I find profoundly rewarding) taking part in fashion shows, editorial work or working on photo shoot, I find it all very fulfilling and feel extremely lucky to have been able to work in all facets of hairdressing with Sassoon.

WHAT IS YOUR CAREER HIGHLIGHT TO DATE?


In June 2017 I was honoured to receive ‘Stylist of the Year’ and less than a week later, I took part in the Grooming Room in London for London Men's Fashion Week. I have always loved to exercise my creative flair and what better place to do it than in London during fashion week! This was something I have dreamt of ever since I began my career in hairdressing and to have that dream realised was phenomenal!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?


The formidable Sassoon Creative Team and everything around me, art, music, travel, food, culture, nature, people, fashion, sunsets!... every single thing that I come into contact with inspires me. LIFE inspires me and all its experiences. Good or bad I believe you learn and improve from everything, you never stop learning. Strive for perfection in everything you do, even if you don't achieve it, you have to give everything and think positively! The world is yours... I truly believe that.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS?


Passionate, outgoing and above all positive!

YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IN THREE WORDS?


Classic, fresh, quirky

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?


I see myself woven deep into the fabric of Sassoon. I want to take every experience offered to me and give it my all. A Creative Director and Academy Educator, travelling the world working on hair shows, delivering education, sharing the magic of Sassoon with everyone I can. I want to be a part of the creative process that ensures Sassoon remains at the very forefront of modern hairdressing... as it has and always will be.
