– Tell us about your life outside MAW? e.g. Hobbies / family / where are you from?

When I’m not working at Aveda Guildford, I’m seeing my family and friends. I really love going to poultry and country shows, I show my chicken Maple and she gets a wash and blow dry to win rosettes! I think she’s beautiful. Apart from that I keep an active lifestyle going to the gym and swimming.

Maple is much more beautiful than this chicken

– What’s your job title at Mary Ann Weeks Aveda?

I’m a senior technician at Aveda and am aspiring to go as far as I can within hairdressing! I literally grab every opportunity to study and learn something new at every chance – hair is my passion!

Describe in a few words what you do?

Styling cutting colouring men’s, women’s and children’s hair and hair up and have recently started learning hair extensions, which are great with this new tape method. The hair stays in for longer, it doesn’t damage the natural hair and the extensions just look so natural. I think extensions are evolving all the time and I especially like that true to form, we only use ethically sourced hair here which is important to me.

– How long have you worked with us?

9 months now, it’s gone quick! I’m loving it though, the team are really welcoming and everyone gets on great.

– What are your favourite things about working with Aveda?

Working with amazing products and for such an ethical natural company. I think in this industry there are a lot of nasty chemicals and I’d rather avoid that if I can. Obviously the clients and colleagues always make a work place and they are brilliant here!

– Whats your best memory of working here?

The staff Christmas do was my favourite so far, we went to the theatre and on to a restaurant followed by dancing and lots of wine! Carol doing the splits made my night – she’s fantastic!

Whats your ‘go to’ Aveda product and why?

A product I personally love is the Aveda Damage Remedy Leave-in Treatment. It makes my (and all!) hair feel so lovely and soft and weak hair is strengthened with quinoa and soy protein.

– If you could nominate anyone at MAW Aveda for an award for something what would the award be and who for?

I’d honestly nominate the whole team if I could! I’d like to specially nominate front of house for always sorting appointments and helping us out if we run behind and might need extra time. They are the backbone of the company and we’d be lost without them!

– What do you use on your own skin?

Natural product Aveda Guildford
Fabulous for clear clean skin

I love the Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant. It’s really good for preventing spots and keeping my skin clean. Since I have been using it I’ve really noticed my skin seems clearer and fresher.

– What’s your top beauty hack?

Adding a few drops of water can rejuvenate a mascara running dry in an emergency!

– How do you like to relax after a busy day at the spa?

On the sofa; with my pet fur baby fancy rats Rolo and Rastus.. Oh and my partner of course!
