Expert Hair Stylists at The Hair Base Salon in Gorleston
Meet the team at The Hair Base! We are a friendly and highly trained group of professionals who look forward to welcoming you into our award-winning salon in Gorleston-on-Sea.
Welcome to my profile.
I am a Director on the salon floor and founder of The Hairbase back in 1999, and one that is extremely proud of where myself and my team are at in this challenging time for small business owners.
I have always been passionate about hair from the ages of around 5yrs when ‘Girls World’ was in the forefront of must have toys, and from that moment on I was going to be a hairdresser! From the age of 13yrs I worked in a salon as a Saturday girl, and after leaving school my hairdressing journey began.
I have NVQ Level 2 & 3 trained and qualified in PTTLS course, foundation & creative design, assessor award, and also have been a tutor at Great Yarmouth College. I have attended many business courses ranging from; How to Grow my Salon to Management courses.
I am also a Great Lengths Artisan, too. I am very proud to have passed my Redken Certified Colourist degree and I am the only one to achieve this within the area. I am excited to be working with Redken and I would love to be a Redken Artist, education is key in my world!
I am married to Simon, we have a son Marley and dog called Oreo, and I feel very privileged to have them in my life. My aspirations are to keep The Hairbase the thriving salon that it is, to keep my clients happy, and help my stylists to be the best they can be.

Hi, welcome to my profile. I am The Hairbase Salon Manager, and have been with the team since September 2014.
I am excited to be part of a salon that has grown from strength to strength since opening its doors 16 years ago. I have many years experience in Co-ordinating / Reception roles, and have been trained to a high standard in customer care. I’ve been in management roles for many years in the retail industry, also the fitness industry, and I have many aspirations I wish to contribute to the salon.
I was secretary for the National Hairdressers Federation East, so am very much aware of the demands and expectations within the industry. I am Redken retail trained and am very passionate about hair care advice; I can guarantee if correct products were used on hair, we would all be walking around with beautiful locks. I have completed various courses in management skills, client care, retail, and window display.
I have one daughter and two crazy Jack Russell dogs whom I call the kids as they’re very much my fur babies. I love fitness, gardening, and socialising with friends and family. I am known for my zany sense of humour, I very much get enjoyment out of making people laugh! If laughter were the fruit of life I would be one hell of a melon.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile and I look forward to greeting you at The Hairbase.

One of my passions within the industry is hair care, and I am honoured to say I am product ambassador for the salon. I am married with two children and two fur babies, Teddy and Baker, and I am very much focused around family life when not working.
I have been told I talk a lot, but I don’t believe people when they say this, I prefer to say I’m a very sociable
person! I am very driven, love challenges, and most of all love making people look, and feel amazing!
My name is Leah and I am a long serving member of The Hairbase. I am a Creative Stylist.
In 2009, I completed my NVQ Level 1 & 2 in hairdressing. After being on the salon floor for a year, I completed my NVQ Level 3.
I am a Great Lengths Artisan of which I love, from the applying the hair extensions all the way to the cutting in and finishing. I also am passionate about colouring hair and making a difference.
We also have the amazing Pierre Renee make up range in salon, and I am able to offer makeovers to our clients after gaining a diploma from Sure Pass Make -Up Academy. I am also Beautiful Bleed trainer. This is an on trend service, incorporating blends of colours, normally vibrant, and is such an exciting service we are fortunate to be able to offer here!

I’m looking forward to what the future holds at The Hairbase and glad to be part of it.
I am an Graduate Stylist at The Hair Base. I first gained experience in the hairdressing industry whilst I was at school, coming in to the salon on a Wednesday after school learning basic skills.
On leaving school, I joined The Hairbase as an apprentice in September 2014. I enjoyed colouring hair in my training, and seeing the transformations that I make.
I am very much enjoying my hairdressing journey, learning everyday from the lovely team. I like to oversee the stylists while they are working on their clients, and learning all the different techniques they use.
I have now become part of the education team, which I am extremely proud of, as I have become consultation / client care trainer through my great customer care, and I am so happy to be doing this role within the team.
I am excited about my future in hairdressing, and hope one day I will have a full column filled full of loyal clients, the same as my team members.
I like to spend time with family and friends and my little pooch Bella.
