Steph, Creative Designer

For a period of four years, I honed my hairstyling skills while working at sea, until destiny led me to England, where I crossed paths with my Fiancé, Matthew. Since then, I've enjoyed seven years of countryside living in the picturesque landscapes of Dorking, Surrey.

I am proud to be part of the esteemed team at Teresa Weller HairArt. Additionally, I am actively engaged in the Fellowship for British Hairdressing Project Colour, demonstrating my commitment to staying at the forefront of the industry.

In recognition of my skills and dedication, I was honored with the Wella award for Stylist of the Year in 2022. Beyond my career, I am a devoted mother to a charming little boy named Harry, who holds my entire world within his smile.”
