Heather Gogarty

My name is Heather Gogarty and I am Team Director / Senior Colour Technician & Manager of Esente Hair Salon.

How long have you been a stylist?  I have been a stylist for Esente for almost 15 years.

Please tell us about your previous jobs in the hairdressing industry. Before qualifying I worked in 2 other salons learning on the job throughout my apprenticeship before moving to Esente when qualified.

Which styles or colours do you absolutely love doing?  I am renowned for foil & freehand techniques & also have a passion for short styles & hair up.

What do you love about being a hairdresser?  I love seeing new people all the time, getting to know them & making them feel amazing!

Which celebrity hair would you like to get your hands?  I would love to get my hands on Victoria Beckham’s hair! I did many “pob” haircuts when she first went for that style & this time I’d create a short pixie cut to emphasise her gorgeous features!

Who or what inspires you to create fabulous hair? My clients! I love being able to create bespoke styles to suit an individual & it’s truly rewarding to be able to help people feel good about themselves.

If you had to live on a desert island, which three hair products would you take with you? Kevin Murphy Young Again Oil to revive my hair from the sand and sea! Kevin Murphy Dry Shampoo as I may not get a hot shower there!  Sea Salt Spray to funk up beachy waves!

What is your ultimate ambition?  When Joe is finally ready for retirement, my ambition is to solely run the salon, coaching the team to be the best we can be! We’re working on it!!

How would you describe yourself in three words? Happy. Good listener!

Tell us something about you that would surprise others. In my, ahem, spare time, I am a mum of 2 lovely boys, Jack & Theo, who keep me busy outside of the salon!
