Elsie

Our Young Stylist, Elsie, has been working at Blakes since January 2017 where, as an apprentice, she learned all the skills that have made her the fantastic hairdresser she is today.  

Which styles or colours do you absolutely love doing? While doing my apprenticeship learned all types of different things. I love doing big bouncy curly blow dries because they’ve got more character in them.

Which celebrity hair would you like to get your hands on?  I would love to do Rihanna’s hair.  I would take her back to a vibrant redhead again.  I’d also love to do a big bouncy blow dry on Beyonce.

If you had to live on a desert island, which three hair products would you take with you?  Moroccanoil treatment, hydrating cream and curl defining cream to create a beachy look.

What is your ultimate ambition?  My ambition is to own my own salon. I want to be good at what I do so I can keep the salon busy and make people feel good about themselves.

How would you describe yourself in three words?  Happy, energetic, reliable.

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise others…  As well as working in a hair salon, I’m not afraid to get dirty.  I drive vintage tractors as a hobby and compete in vintage ploughing matches!
