Lauren - Senior Art Director

PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT:
I really enjoy being part of the Stuart Holmes Salon, we're a close team and I've been here for over 6 years! I absolutely LOVE creating that 'total look' for my clients - choosing a bespoke colour to suit them and a hair style to compliment their colour and it's so important to me that I can help to make them feel great!
I've enjoyed an abundance of training courses with L'Oreal from colour choice to colour techniques and seasonal trends which enables me to deliver an excellent standard of hairdressing for my clients. I enjoy highlighting hair as there are so many gorgeous shades and tones to choose from - there are the warm caramels, sandy blondes, honey tones and soft natural blondes and I love choosing and blending the perfect colours to suit my clients.
I regularly take part in photo shoots and fashion shows with the salon - the creative side of hairdressing is fun and it's always fantastic to support various events and charities.
I also have lots of regular blow dry clients who love that 'salon finish' that lasts for days - I pride myself on knowing that they leave the salon looking and feeling great and that their hair will still be fab a couple of days later!

FAVOURITE PRODUCT:
Kerastase Materialiste is perfect for styling hair, giving it body and shine and leaving it really easy to manage.

Thanks to you all! :) "

Jacob - Senior Art Director

PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT:
I have been at the Stuart Holmes Salon for about six and a half years and I completed my apprenticeship here and have worked my way up to Creative Director. One of my proudest moments was winning my place as a Grand Finalist at the prestigious L'Oreal Colour Trophy Men's Image Award. It was such an experience to be a finalist out of hundreds of applicants and I was awarded Runner Up which was a huge accolade. I've also taken part in the London to Brighton Bike Ride with the salon team raising funds for The British Heart Foundation -that was an amazing experience!

I love looking after my clients in the salon, it always gives me a real sense of achievement knowing they love their hair. I love all aspects of hairdressing, but I do have some favourites.....I really like short/sharp haircuts - I'm a perfectionist and I like the detail and precision cutting which is a challenge as there is no room for error - it has to be perfect. I enjoy men's styling too and I also like recommending colour for men's hair, it can really make a style more interesting - it isn't necessarily about just covering grey!

Colouring is something I'm really passionate about and I've done a variety of colouring courses, my most recent was with L'Oreal and I gained a Distinction qualification as a recognised Colour Specialist - something I'm very proud of. I really like the Ombre and Balayage colours and techniques - colours that really create interest to hair such as adding 'flashes of colour'. I also have a reputation for creating amazing blow drys which I'm also very proud of. I have a lot of regular blow dry clients and I really enjoying making women's hair look gorgeous and a great blow-dry can make a woman feel very feminine and glamorous.

TOP TIP:
If your hair is a shorter style then really it should be cut every 4-5 weeks to keep the style looking sharp and fresh. Always use a good styling product on shorter hair to enhance the texture and finish


FAVOURITE PRODUCT:
Definitely have a Smartbond treatment whenever you have a colour service - it helps lock in colour and makes hair stronger and shinier - my clients request it when they have colour with me because the results are so amazing.

"Hi. I had a recent Cut and Colour with Jacob - last week. I would just like to say how very pleased I am with the cut, and the colour. Also, I would like it noted that I was delighted with how Jacob was brilliant with a. listening to what I wanted b. attentive but not too much so and c. how efficient he was with planning the whole thing, particularly the cut, which is always very important to me. Also, how very affirming Jacob is with his approach - I left feeling much better than when I came in! Overall, a 10 out of 10. Thank you".
Lynne R

"Hello Stuart Holmes. I just wanted to let you know what a fabulous job Jacob did on my hair last week. It was my first visit and he immediately understood how I wanted my hair to look. The colour is fabulous, the cut superb and the blow dry lasted longer than any I have had before. As a twelve year client of Charles Worthington's Percy Street salon in central London, I am not easily impressed, but I certainly was with my visit to Stuart Holmes. Not only is Jacob a highly talented hairdresser, but also a very pleasant and personable young man to boot.Needless to say I will be back! Thank you Jacob and Stuart Holmes".
Carole B

"Hi - I had a fashion colour appointment with Jacob yesterday and I just wanted to say that I have had so many compliments on the colour over the last two days, I didn't give Jake much direction but he somehow managed to give me exactly what I wanted and not only has it brightened my hair but my mood as well after a really tough few weeks. I just thought it was worth letting you know how happy I am with the colour and service I had yesterday. Please pass on my thanks to Jake".
Lisa M

"I'm not one to normally write a review, but after today I felt I had to.Just had THE best hairdressing experience ever courtesy of Jacob. Completely cured my hairdresser phobia, and for the first time in a long time I walked out of the salon feeling amazing (and not at all like I wanted to cry after previous appointments at other salons). Thanks Jacob, I love my new undercut! I'll definitely be booking a hair trial here for my wedding next year."
