Meet The Team

 

 

Brandon Messinger – Artistic Director

Hairdressing has been a passion of mine since I was 15 and realised I wanted to create perfect cuts, which initially came as bit of surprise as I thought I wanted to  be a physicist. I never cease to be amazed by the things we can do with such a fantastic material, and I am fanatical about shape and form and ensuring perfect suitability for all my guests. I have over the years developed a 4 step process to create the perfect cut for each one of my guests, completely unique to them.

 

Before joining The Hair Movement I have been working with international salon brands perfecting my skills and helping to shape and move the industry forward. I have been in the fortunate and humbling position of winning several prestigious awards, which has been more about me pushing myself and my craft, than the award itself.

 

I have enjoyed every minute of my career so far and am always looking for a new adventure or challenge hence my decision to become The Hair Movements artistic director. The company and the brands it owns is on an extremely exciting path, and I am so excited to be part of it. Ultimately though, everything is all about the person in my chair and there is no better feeling then making somebody feel amazing about themselves.

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!

Victoria Clancey –  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 –  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 –  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 –  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.
