An inspiration to stylists, business owners and women worldwide. She’s achieved all this and more through hard work unwavering self-belief and it also helps that she’s such a genuine, down-to-earth person.

Her phenomenal talent has made her a familiar face at industry events and award ceremonies. She was recently crowned ‘Afro Hairdresser of the Year’ for the 3rd time at the British Hairdressing Awards and now enters their Hall of Fame and rightly takes her place in the most exclusive club in British Hairdressing. These three awards sit at the pinnacle of an already impressive list of over 20 accolades that she has achieved in both hair and business.
