Hi my name is Naima, salon consultant.

I’ve been a hairdresser for 31 years. (Now everyone’s going to know my age!)

My journey started here when I was 16 years old in Leopold Road, as the years have gone by I’ve been in a few salons and learned a lot of new tricks along the way to find myself here back home on Leopold Road.

Which hairstyles do you love creating? I love all aspects of hair!! Especially a restyle.

What do you love about being a hairdresser? Seeing my lovely clients as well as meeting new ones. Helping clients feel good about themselves is so important to me and that they trust me. I’m very proud to be a hairdresser!

Who inspires you to create fabulous hair? As mummy of the salon I look to my fabulous team for new ideas and inspiration, along with magazines and YouTube. My clients also inspire me, I enjoy looking at them with fresh eyes every time they visit.

Which celebrity hair would you like to get your hands on? Simon Cowell !!! I would so love to change his look.

If you had to live on a desert island, which hair products would you take with you? I could not be without Kevin Murphy Restore and Young Again dry shampoo.

How would you describe yourself in three words? Fun, loving, empathetic

Tell us something about you that would surprise others! When I’m not doing the job that I love, I am an auntie to 12 nieces and nephews. Plus mum taxi to 2 amazing teenagers, that keeps me more than busy!!!
