Originally from South Korea, Sonya was inspired to become a hairdresser through a close family member.  Trained at Vidal Sassoon, she studied the essential foundations of cutting, colouring and the science of hairdressing.  Her personal passion was hairdressing and hairstyling and she dedicated herself to this solely.  Working backstage in the fashion industry at numerous photo-shoots and shows, her highlight is the Lualla show in London Fashion Week.  In her spare time she enjoys organizing her own charity events, called Rewind Time. These are events that celebrate fashion and music through the decades in venues around London, including vintage hair and makeup. Proceeds from this event are sent to a charity to help children, vulnerable and abandoned by their families in Thailand. 

“Vidal Sassoon is the most inspiring person to me.  Not only as a hairdresser, but also his inspiring charity work.”
