About meMy story

Since beginning my hair business in 2011 not only do I get to be a part of someone’s most special day, but I also have enjoyed teaching hair styling since 2013.

I’m so pleased to say that many of my trainees have gone on to be extremely successful hairstylists, including Bumble Bee Bridal in Essex and Atlas Beauty in Ashville, North Carolina.

My courses are run on a 1-2-1 basis as that’s how I’ve always enjoyed learning myself. As the courses are so personal they can be completely tailored to the trainees needs.

I’ve designed the way I train to show techniques rather than specific styles. All these techniques eventually end with a hair style but I aim to show my trainees how each technique can be adapted for many different styles. Please read below for more details on the 1-2-1 courses, or alternatively click through to my online training to learn in the comfort of your own home.

One to one courses are held in Billericay, Essex and run 9.30 to 2.30pm. The course is structured so that students can achieve 20 hairstyles confidently. Each style or technique will be demonstrated and then it will be your turn to practice under supervision.

“Taking a bridal styling class with Lisa was so much fun! We focused on styles I wanted to strengthen my skill set, it was like hanging out with a friend and doing hair. Lisa is a patient teacher and incredibly talented. What I learned from Lisa I brought home and started using in the salon immediately. I loved my trip across the pond to take Lisa’s bridal-styling class!”

I would highly recommend Lisa's training day. I asked her for a refresher because I felt I became a little stale and my styles were very set looking. I went to Lisa with some photos of style ideas I had been having trouble with and a few of Lisa's images I was inspired by and she was very patient and positive in showing me her tricks and skills. I came away feeling excited and inspired and couldn’t wait to try out what I had learnt. It has changed my hair ups a lot and I feel I’m now confident and up-to-date with current trends. Lisa was able to show me around 5/6 new styles on day course. Thanks again Lisa. You inspire me!
