Say hello to Daniel, our Salon Manager and Art Director at Red Hairdressers in Battle. He has been hairdressing since 2008 when he started as an apprentice. Just over a year later and he was running his own column of clients.
Daniel previously worked for a 5* Salon Group in Berkshire, quickly becoming a top level stylist and one of the top earners in the salon group. In the summer of 2015 he was made a manager and has, over the years, enjoyed educating stylists and apprentices both in house and around the world.
An award-winning hairdresser, Daniel reached the UK finals of the prestigious Wella Trend Vision in 2018. Part of my previous role was in their Artistic Team showcasing the industry and showcasing the best of UK hairdressing up and down the country as well as abroad.
Which hair cuts or colours do you love creating? My personal belief is the right cut or style is dependent on each person. That being said I think shorter haircuts are being missed out on, crops and bobs come in many forms and can highlight and flatter your best features.
As for colour I enjoy the variety that colour has to offer. I would say the condition of your hair is always my first priority to give clients the best result. Full head bleaching and tailored colour placements are my favourite. I also have a huge passion for men’s hairdressing which is often overlooked in our industry.
What do you love about being hairdressers? The one thing above all I love about being a hairdresser is people, and building genuine rapport, connection and trust. Seeing a stylist’s confidence grow or helping a client feel better about themselves is what I strive for and feel is my purpose.
Who inspires you to create great hair? My inspiration for hairdressing comes from within. I genuinely care about my clients and how they look and feel. I follow as many people within the industry for ideas. A motto I have is learn a skill, pass it on, learn another one.
What is your ultimate ambition? Happiness is my guiding light.
How would you describe yourself in three words? Fearless, caring and inquisitive.
