This relationship has allowed Jamie to access new products, developing techniques and new ways of using cutting edge formulas before anyone else.
His eye for colour means he can create the perfect blonde from even the darkest brunette and remedy even the biggest of colour corrections, this is what really makes him stand out from the crowd. Counting celebrity clients including Rita Ora and Hannah Reid of London Grammar, his iconic work can be seen all across London.
Citing his influences as growing up on the beach, the seasonal changes of colour, and general lifestyle, Jamie sees colour even in inanimate objects. His absolute love of blonde hair means he both lives and breathes his craft.
Even as a child Natalia was inspired by colour and instinctively understood its creative possibilities, it was only natural that her career would lead her to become such a respected colour technician.
From a small town in Italy Natalia successfully juggled her early life as a hairdressing trainee alongside a full time education but it wasn’t long before her talent was spotted and she became part of the Italian L’Oreal professional team working backstage and with key celebrities.
In 2012 she moved to London to work with Toni + Guy as an educator in their salons and to collaborate in fashion weeks, assisting on iconic shows such as Channel and Tom Ford. Natalia is a qualified Master colour expert for both Wella and L'Oréal and has won awards in their colour trophy and Trend Vision finals.
Natalia’s clients describe her real passion for hairdressing and her ability to blend both creative and classic colour to perfectly adapt to each individual. We think that this may be helped by her inside knowledge of how people relate to the world as she works towards a psychology degree in her spare time.
