With a background of 24 years training and technical experience, Jamie is one of Taylor Taylor London’s leading blonde colour specialists. His unique vision, passion for his craft, talent and eye for bigger picture details such as skin tone, lifestyle and colour commitment has enabled him to offer the ultimate in bespoke blonde tones and colours for each individual client. As Jamie says, “no blonde is ever the same, but there is a blonde for everyone”. From subtle mixes of cool, warm tones, to strawberry blonde to the palest platinum, Jamie creates specific blonde colours tailored to suit each client, corrects existing colour problems and breaks old formulaic rules, totally transforming but never compromising the hair.
Jamie’s ability to use colour as a bespoke art form has not only led to a fanatically loyal celebrity/client base which he fiercely protects, but also to working with sustainable beauty brand Davines for the last 3 years as one of their Colour Ambassadors and UK Educators. 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.
