Salon owner Melissa Timperley started her career young – in fact, family photos show her cutting her dolls’ hair aged four! She’s come a long way since then…

Balayage and bobs

Shot by Michael Young, this image is the epitome of what we stand for as a brand and my personal aesthetic as a hairdresser; it’s creative and beautiful hair.

Precision is key

I shot this when I was at Sassoon, and it was part of my first British Hairdressing Awards, sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional collection for North Western Hairdresser of the Year.

Short and sweet

The collection was all about short hair, precision cutting and innovative colour placement. I worked with a designer whose debut collection was being shown at LFW.

Two tone

I feel like this image from our most recent collection fully represents me. Honing your style takes confidence, time, experience and a lot of effort, but I love what I do.

Behind the mask

During the pandemic, mental health and the masks we wear preoccupied me. I brought this theme to life in a series of images, shot by Roberto Aguilar using Unite products.

Art attack!

This was fun to shoot! Inspired by the artist Jackson Pollock and his drip technique, the model was splashed with different coloured paints.

I love her raspberry ripple pixie cut.

Curls aloud

We’re proud to work with all hair types in our salon. I found there was a lack of inspirational curly hair imagery, so this shoot celebrates the beauty of curls – on real clients!
