OVER 30 YEARS AT THE CUTTING EDGE
Andrew has forged an outstanding reputation over 30 years in the hairdressing business.
Today he is considered one of the world’s leading hair stylists and most acclaimed teachers.
His technique evolved whilst he was Principal of the Vidal Sassoon Schools and Academies in the late 70’s and 80’s… the advent of punk and a new wave of ‘fashion with attitude’ saw geometric principles turned upside down which Andrew re-evaluated, interpreting and teaching them anew. Part of the revolution that created many of the techniques of today; texturising, slide cutting, shattering, weave cut, disconnection and flying colours to name but a few.
Opening his own business in 1988 Andrew created the looks for many models and celebrities and has been nominated six times as British Hairdresser of the Year. His technique has evolved and advanced to styling through his extensive salon, photographic and editorial work, high quality hair finishing and the ability to style with a free approach.
His signature style was recognised by the influential Creative Head and Sunday Times Magazine, giving his Jean Paul Goude inspired Paris Hairdressing Collection photographed by Tim Brett Day, both the front cover and six pages.
His many Photo credits include collaborations with Clive Arrowsmith-Ellen von Unwerth- Patrick Demarchelier
His consumer book ‘ Love your Hair ‘ Published by Thorsons-Harper Collins sold 100,000 copies.
Today Andrew can be found hands-on in his London salon,an Ambassador for Tigi professional and Salon science for consumer Haircare, doing session work or teaching at every level.
2018 is a 30 year anniversary of watching the world go by from our much coveted location at the gateway to sophisticated and creative Charlotte Street. Back in 1988 we were extremely lucky to find this wonderful old Edwardian shop in fashionable Fitzrovia, London W1. with it’s calm, bright atmosphere and original, dual aspect glazing. Andrew transformed it into the light and airy two floor salon that it is today. Our clients always feel totally relaxed either watching the world go by from the discreet privacy of the enchanting ground floor, or they unwind in the exclusive seclusion of the lower ground salon, which also benefits from natural light.
No.1 Charlotte Street has been our home for so long that it truly emanates a homely, peaceful informality.
We love working here.
