Tea With Keeley – A Experienced Hairstylist in Peterborough

Keeley has been with us at Locks and Shades a while now. She has masses of experience and is a trusted hairdresser that clients love. We recently had a sit down and a cuppa with the lovely Keeley and asked her a few questions to find out more about her. This is what we found out;

So Keeley, you’ve been with us at Locks and Shades as an experienced hairstylist in Peterborough a few months now; what are you enjoying most?

What I am enjoying about working at locks and shades is that all customers want something different with their hair. Not every customer is walking out of the salon the same and instead they look different. I love how we all work as a team and help each other out. I’m also enjoying working with koleston perfect and seeing different results in colour.

How long have you been a hair stylist and what got you into it?

I have been a hairdresser for 23 years now. I used to enjoying going to the salon with my mum to get her hair done and I was fascinated by how it was always done and how the end result looked. At the age of 13 I got myself a Saturday job and enjoyed looking after the customers and making them feel good. This made me realise hairdressing was what I wanted to do for my career.

Who inspires you and why?

Lee Stafford inspires me because he is not afraid to do any transformation on his clients. He is very adventurous when it comes to colour and cutting and happy to try anything on any client. He has also recently opened his own academy so he can teach people the way he works; I think that’s really inspirational.

What’s the best thing about your job?

I think that the best thing about my job is seeing a customer happy and going out of the salon feeling happy and proud to have their hair done at Locks and Shades in Yaxley.

What’s your top hair care tip?

My top hair tip is to have regular trims as this keeps the split ends from forming in the first place, also using a serum.

What’s your favourite hair trend past or present?

My favourite hairstyle from the past was permed hair. You would be able to leave your hair go dry naturally or you could create volume by drying with a diffuser.

Which hair technique do you love and why?

My favourite hair technique is the balayage. I love how you can get so many different tones with this technique and that you’re able to do it free-hand.

Which celebrities’ hair would you love to get your hands on?

I would like to do Julia Roberts hair to put some nice subtle soft tones through her hair.
