Tania Betsy – Creative Salon Director
It’s the only thing I’ve ever done and want to do for more than 28yrs!
Hair is my thing and it always will be! Moving into my third decade in the industry, I can honestly say, what a ride!!
I have ran a successful salon for 10 years whilst learning and growing my craft, which allows me to teach and share my experiences with my guests, my team and now my new tribe.
Balayage and all of its bespoke techniques have been at the forefront over the last few years which I have mastered.
I believe everyday is a school day, so for me and the tribe it’s important to bounce off of each other, breeding an infectious atmosphere so we can create and allow our guests to enjoy and appreciate being in the seat!
So, come enjoy, relax and feel undeniably fabulous !
Samantha Taylor – Creative Director
Successful Salons are built on people. I am a Stylist with a dynamic personality that brings guests into the Salon for more than just a haircut!
Building confidence and loyalty is key to creating a unique experience for all of my guests and ensuring you are strutting out the door feeling fabulous and loving your hair. I work to tailor my approach to each person, listen to their exact desires and work with them to create their perfect look!
Over my 27 years in the industry I have gained qualifications in both practice and teaching, working my way up from a junior apprentice to managing my own thriving salon for a major international brand!
It was along this journey I developed a real passion for colour – from timeless balayage to vibrant statement looks!
In 2015, I teamed up with international hair brand Schwarzkopf for the launch of their new white, grey blonde campaign. This enabled me to delve into a whole new world of colour which I could then bring to my clients! You never stop learning and developing your skills as a colourist or a stylist which is why I am so excited to be working with a game changing innovative brand like The Hair Movement! I can’t wait to bring my skills and expertise to their new Salon and the people of Sidcup! Hope to see you soon!
Amy Russell – Creative Brand Director
I am what is considered a late bloomer in the hairdressing world. Starting my career at the age of 19, I took an apprenticeship in my local salon after I’d been travelling and needed a job. Needless to say I absolutely fell in love with every aspect of hairdressing.
I knew I still wanted to travel and figured I could do hair anywhere in the world. Little did I realise at the time that I’d go on to travel the world as an educator. I’m now 10 years into my career, and have taught classes and done shows across Europe. More recently I won Denman’s Stage Star competition and was given the opportunity to work at the IBS in New York.
There are still many things I want to tick off my career list, but my day to day in the salon is what brings me the most joy. I love building relationships with clients, I believe my job is to give you more than just a fantastic haircut, it’s to give you a whole experience. I’m so excited to join the beautiful team at The Hair Movement, start meeting new people, and make all your hair dreams come true.
Victoria Clancey – Senior Stylist
I have always had a passion for hair and decided to study hairdressing at the London College of Hair and Beauty in Soho. After graduating, I went on to work for a notable London hair salon where she developed her skills over the next 15 years. During this time I also built a busy and loyal client base whilst assisting in inspiring and developing young stylists’ careers.
Hair is truly a passion for me, seeing new trends that appear on the street and on the catwalk keep my ideas and styles fresh.
When working with hair my main inspiration is always my guests. It is so important to achieve a look that suits my guest’s hair, lifestyle, personality and look. Collaborating with my guests to create a look that makes them feel good is key.
Whether you would like to sit and read a magazine or have a good chat, I am happy to let you take the lead so you are relaxed and comfortable while I perfect your look. I am always happy to talk hair and enjoy giving my guests any advice that will help them look after their hair at home. Please just ask away!
Kim Moore – Senior Stylist
Kim is an expert in all aspects of hair-styling and is a qualified assessor, honing her skills for the past twenty years. She was inspired by her dad, who is a barber, to get into the hair industry. What keeps Kim happy on a daily basis is her No.1 passion. People. She creates lasting relationships with her clients, some of whom are still with her since she began her career in hair twenty years ago. Don’t let that deter you though. She still loves creating beautiful hair and forging relationships with new clients too.
‘To be someone’s chosen stylist is a big deal. You get to spend a lot of time together over the years, and you really get to know them and their lives. If I can help make them more confident and happier to take on life’s challenges, then I’m happy.’
Style is ever-changing, and people do the same. Kim believes your hair should follow suit. ‘You change your wardrobe with the seasons. You change your shade of lipstick depending on your mood. I am a firm believer that you should treat your hair in the same way. I work with my clients to create amazing hair that reflects them as a person, changing as they change, but always looking beautiful. It really makes my day worthwhile seeing them leave the salon with confidence to be their best self.’
Lucy Martin- Stylist
My passion for hairdressing began when I started working in a salon at a young age as a Saturday girl. It was there I came to understand just how important the complete client experience was, and how much I wanted to work in this incredibly creative industry, setting my own footprint.
After completing my hairdressing studies, gaining all qualifications, I immersed myself into the industry, learning from the best in order to constantly improve and become the best all round hairdresser possible, providing the highest level of service and experience to my clients.
I am now extremely excited to become a tribe member at The Hair Movement [ the salon ], a five star rated creative hub
Jessie Powell – Stylist
I have always wanted to be a hairdresser. From an early age, whenever I was allowed, I used to play with the hair of family and friends. I would give them ‘makeovers’, and already back then I became passionate about creating a look which would make them feel better about themselves. I think that’s what drives me. That look when a guest sees the finished result in the mirror and a reflection of joy beams back. I will honestly never get bored of it. I work really hard to build trust with my guests, which forges relationships that allow me to keep fulfilling their hair dreams and wishes.
I left school and went straight into my apprenticeship with a well-known salon group. In my third and final year of training, out of the salons in the group, I came first in the colour and cutting competition. Already a young stylist, I just wanted to keep learning. That desire to always further develop my skills and craft has never dwindled. I keep it alive by learning from industry greats, attending courses and by pushing myself. One of the last courses I took part in was for a new technique of balayage, allowing me to perfect that natural, sun-kissed look.
I now have 14 years of experience and still massively love the industry. I firmly believe that you have to keep growing and stay on trend with the latest looks and techniques. This is one of the reasons I am joining the tribe at The Hair Movement. It’s a brand, which in a very short space of time, has put its mark on the industry, whilst completely changing the benchmark and definition of what a salon experience should be like for its Guests.
I can’t wait to see you soon for a coffee and a consultation.
Helen Keegan – Stylist
To say that I love hairdressing would be an understatement. I have been in the industry for 8 years and have always known that this is my chosen profession. I have now joined The Hair Movement tribe to take the next step in that professional journey. I believe in constantly developing my craft, and always staying up to date with current trends and techniques. I also know that one of the key skills of being a hairdresser is the ability to listen and understand what my guests truly want.
In 2017 I completed my master training colour specialist degree, something I worked extremely hard to achieve. Pushing my skills through further education, seminars and live events is so important to me and I’ve been told that my passion and drive to excel shines through, both in the salon experience of my guests as well as the hair they leave with.
Joining the tribe and The Hair Movement brand means new challenges, new opportunities and the chance to meet new guests whilst nurturing existing ones in a brilliant environment. Exciting times!
I, like the rest of tribe (which is one of the reasons why I am so excited to join) believe in taking each guest on their own unique hair journey, and this journey is forever changing, which keeps it fresh, new and exciting for everyone involved. I look forward to meeting you and starting that journey with you.
I’m so excited to become part of the tribe at The Hair Movement where I am looking forward to building long-lasting relationships with you, whilst delivering beautiful hair!
Josh Wise – Stylist
My name’s Josh and I’m a new tribe member at The Hair Movement. I started my hairdressing career in 2017, training in some of the best salons in Northampton. I get a thrill out of taming the wildest hair and love seeing the beautiful hair transformation, experiencing with my guests the ‘wow’ factor of a wonderful before and after. My passion is colour, especially blondes, but of course finishing a look with a great cut and style is something I take so much pride in.
My creative style has been described as more classic with a contemporary twist, and I’m constantly keeping up to date with new trends via social media and the industry as a whole, which I feel is vital to being a successful and current stylist.
I am so happy to now be part of The Hair Movement and look forward to sharing some hair memories with you.
Alex Prior – Stylist
My name’s Alex, and I’m a new member of The Hair Movement tribe! Here’s a little bit about me (so you know what you’re getting). I’ve been studying hairdressing since I was 16, but there’s been a hairdresser in me for as long as I can remember. I used to be the girl in school who would plait everyones’ hair, always creating new styles on my friends. So when I left school, I started a hairdressing apprenticeship hoping that it would be what I’d always imagined, and I absolutely fell in love! Not only was I lucky to have a profession I was already passionate about, but I learned a trade, giving me incredible opportunities.
I started my career with Aveda back in 2016 and now I’m a proud tribe member here at The Hair Movement. It goes without saying, I love everything hair: cutting, colouring and I’m especially passionate about hair up! I never stop pushing myself or the creative boundaries, but there’s still so much more I want to learn in an industry that’s forever evolving.
Hair isn’t the only thing I love about what I do. Meeting all of you lovely people is my real driver. Your hair styles may change over time, but being happy never goes out of style.
So join me at the movement, and together we can create your dream hair, and get you feeling fresh and amazing! I look forward to our future hair journey.
