What’s your job title at Mary Ann Weeks Aveda?
I am a Styling Director at MAW.

Describe in a few words what you do?
My role involves advice on maintaining great hair condition, good nutrition for hair and skin and styling advice. I cut and colour hair to best suit the clients face shape and lifestyle.

How long have you worked with us?
I started at MAW in 2008 and took a break for a couple of years in between to help my daughters setting into school.

What are your favourite things about working with Aveda?
My favourite thing about working at Aveda are the products but also the team are great!

I love the fact that the products work beautifully yet are naturally derived and free of the nasties put in other hair brands.

Whats your best memory of working here?
One of my best memories of working here at Aveda has to be from the army assault course we did on a team day out. Seeing everyone splattered in mud and yet still looking glamorous.

My go to product is ‘dry remedy’ daily moisturising oil. I use it every morning on the ends of my hair to add shine, de-frizz and moisturise.

If you could nominate anyone at MAW Aveda for an award for something what would the award be and who for?
I would nominate Kelly for an award. She is chief team builder. She organises special events for all the staff like birthday surprises to gender reveal dinners.

What do you use on your own skin?
On my own skin I use Aveda Wedding mask and eye cream.

What’s your top beauty hack?
My top beauty hack is use Daily Moisturising Oil on nail cuticles and eyelashes before bed to strengthen and thicken.
