Life through a lens

1 Balayage and bobs
This was for an education video that I financed with my own money. My main aim was to show the diversity of balayage.

2 Blondes of the world!
This blonde campaign for Schwarzkopf Professional is one of my all-time favourite shoots.

Thankfully the industry is moving in the right direction for blondes and Afro hair.

3 Golden glow
My first-ever shoot in the UK! I had zero money for it and did a street casting. The clothing budget was zero, so we focused on the hair. I'm proud to say British Vogue used this image!

4 14 pieces 
The idea for '14 pieces' had come to me in the salon and I launched it as a technique; to this day people still talk about how it changed the way they paint.

5 Collaboration time
My first collaboration as a colourist! I asked Zoë Irwin to style the hair; at that time collaborations were rare because of brand conflicts but I think we helped change that perception.

6 Blonde ambition
  I don’t think you’d associate this image with me, as it’s a little more editorial. I brought in a brunette as well as a blonde (out of shot) for some classic balayage. I think it's so pretty.

7 Look of love
My first Schwarzkopf Professional Essential Looks campaign and my first year as the global blondme ambassador. This was a commercial look that resonated with stylists globally.
