I am big on ‘up styles’ for my hair at work. I love them because it means my hair is fixed in one place for the day and I can get on with my passion. However I know thousands of women are doing this the wrong way!
From the age of 5 I have always had to have my hair pinned up for dance shows. My hair couldn’t move while I was on stage but had to be in various styles between scenes. Over 16 years of experience help me to be creative with my hair. I then went on to work for a company where image was everything and your hair needed to be ‘up’ at all times.
