We have been asking the team in salon about celebrity hair. How they would style it and what they would talk about with those precious private minutes with that person in the chair! Here is Hanna on a Desperate Housewife:

Whose hair would you like to do?

Bree van de Kamp (aka Marcia Cross)

Why do you want to do her hair?

Because it’s such an unusual colour!

What style you recommend for which occasion?

I would colour it and cut it shorter – into a sharp bob I think. Because she has such sharp features, she would look good with a defined cut, ready for a film premiere or unveiling of a new show.

What sort of outfit would complement the style you would recommend?

A gorgeous dress that is off the shoulder or not too busy around the neck to show off the new cut.

Which of the Keune So Pure products would you recommend for their hair?

Keune So Pure colour care shampoo and conditioner – to keep the colour vibrant. Air Foam Strong – to give the hair some hold & body when blow-drying.

What would you talk about during her time in the chair?

I would ask her about her career and filming desperate housewives because it was one of my favourite programmes!

Fern Junior Stylist at Gill Goddard Hair

Fern Junior Stylist at Gill Goddard Hair

Fern is the lovely Junior stylist at Gill Goddard Hair. We popped out to the New Walk Brassiere to have a drink and a chat. Fern has a great laugh and is full of life. She has been dedicated to Gill Goddard Hair and clients throughout her studies and graduated earlier in the year as a stylist. (Congratulations to Fern!)

We talked about what she loves about working at Gill Goddard Hair. We also talked about textiles, Top Shop and letting her hair down. Apparently she would love to share her evening pizza with a man off TV called Dodger….

Why did you become a hair stylist?

I have always loved hairdressing. I really loved art at school, especially textiles, but I am a better hairdresser than I am artist! But I do think hair styling is creative, so I enjoy it a lot. If I wasn’t a stylist I would like to be a beautician or a designer.

You are wearing a great combat jacket. Is that from your favourite shop?

Yes! I love Top Shop. I don’t follow the big designers – out of my price range! But I do love nearly everything at Top Shop. Mostly you will see me in the salon in black. This top has got a back longer than the front, I really like that style.  Black for the winter – and because it goes with everything. Orange and coral for summer. Actually, I don’t wear a lot of coral but I like it on other people.

Tell us about working at Gill Goddard Hair?

I really like it at Gill’s. Everyone wants you to get on and be as good as you can be. Hairdressing can be very competitive, nasty even. But at our salon people support you and help you to be the best. Gill gives us lots of training, in salon and in training centres. Not many salon owners do as much as that to help their staff.

What is the highlight of the year for you in the salon?

I love Christmas. We are so busy. Lots of clients come in and tell us about their Christmas plans. I get lots of younger clients that tell me about their parties and where they are going that night. It is a lot of fun. And wearing the Christmas hats – I love that picture!

What do you do in the evening after a hard day’s work?

I like watching 90210, Hollyoaks, Made in Chelsea (they are so posh!) and The Only Way is Essex “Shut Up!” (Said with a very good Essex accent). I live with my mum so she cooks me dinner. I love Pizza.

If you could go out to dinner with anyone who would it be?

Dodger from Hollyoaks of course! (Ha ha). And we would eat Pizza!

If you could style anyone’s hair who would it be?

Someone young and famous. I would do Beyoncé – although I would be really scared! Or Rhianna.  I would be so nervous! I actually love styling long hair. You can straighten or curl it, there are so many possibilities. I think younger clients like to come to me because I understand how important it is to cut long hair just the right length. I know what it is like to be out in the evening and want your long hair to be, like, perfect.
