With Vidal Sassoon at Davies Mews, 2005. A throwback from my days teaching Diploma at Sassoon Academy.

Teaching is a great love of mine so I free up my column on Wednesdays to train our staff.

Apprentices combine a day at college with a weekly session with me and all stylists who join Material are introduced to precision cutting over a number of weeks. Our colourists regularly attend the Wella Academy in London or sessions with Vivica Davies who I worked with at Mahogany in London.

Training happens in the salon every week so we need a steady stream of models to practise on.

If you’re interested in free haircuts and colour(under full supervision), please email for more information.
