James (Formerly Oliver) Thompson

“Being creative is in my blood and what better way to channel it than in making people feel amazing with beautiful hair”

When leaving school, James’s grandma told him what would become life-changing advice: “Do what makes you happy.”.

“...So I did. And I haven’t ever looked back, hairdressing has enabled me to follow my life ambitions and travel too.” James proudly says.

12 years of being in the hair industry and attaining impressive qualifications with Vidal Sassoon, Wella Colour courses and bridal qualifications have only fortified Oliver’s passion for hairdressing.

Oliver’s favourite hair types cover a wide spectrum from “Bobs, gents, long hair, party hair, weddings, creative cuts; to name a few.”

His popularity and ability to find the perfect styles for guests come naturally; “As a hairdresser, I like to make my guest feel as comfortable as possible (I think it's a northern thing) so they can relax and tell me everything from their hair needs to their PIN number!” he jests!

“Hairdressing gives me the greatest pleasure by making people feel good. Your hair is your crown and you should rock it."
