After training in London at Vidal Sassoon and Toni & Guy he has since spent most of his time in Cromer and North Walsham.

He began his career just as blow-drying was taking over from the days of the weekly shampoo and set, but he said it’s always been about the cut.

He said: “Although times and fashions have changed, hair styling is still as much an art form as it ever was.”

He is proud to head up a talented team of stylists and assistants at the state-of-the-art salon in Grammar School Road, and teaches them the core cuts and styling principles.

He added: “It is curious to see how much fashion, hairstyles and haircare products have changed during the last 40 years but wanting to look good is never out of date.

“I make sure we have access to the very latest treatments and equipment. We are often the first in Norfolk to embrace new techniques and products. “I love being able to help our clients make the best of themselves with a haircut and colour which is stylish, flattering, easy to manage and, of course, instagramable.”

He has won many prestigious awards including the National Hairdressing Federation photo/styling competition of the year, numerous charity hair shows and as an educator for Wella hair care company, and has styled the hair of celebrities such as pop singer Limahl of Kajagoogoo.

But despite rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, he loves nothing better than working with the stylish ladies of Norfolk and bringing the cachet of West London to his salon in North Walsham.
