Emma Crawford

STYLIST / MANAGER

I started my journey in 2008 and have loved it more each day. I enjoy all aspects of hair and put all my passion into everything that i do. Client satisfaction is my number one priority and i will make sure i give them my best every visit. A happy client makes a happy hairdresser.

 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A HAIRDRESSER?

I started my career when I was 14 working as an assistant in a local salon on a Saturday.

After that I achieved a NVQ level 2 apprenticeship in a city centre salon until 2013 when we opened limelight. Here I have gained my NVQ level 3 advanced apprenticeship . This was when I really expanded my skills and knowledge on corrective colour and creative cutting. I have also achieved my level 3 diploma in business management which has helped me progress in to my senior position.

Throughout my career I have further advanced my skills in the hair industry. I now have a wealth of knowledge due to completing a range of courses with L’Oreal professional including;

  • Colour keys
  • Corrective colour change
  • Freehand colouring

 

I’m also qualified in bridal make up, hair extensions and spray tanning.

 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HAIR STYLE?

I can’t choose! I love how versatile long hair can be. You can curl it, straighten it, pin it up or wear it down. But I also love the texture and volume you can get with short cuts. It is exciting when people go for a big change too; a few of my clients have had the chop and donated their hair to charity. It was great to be a part of it.

 

WHO IS YOUR CELEBRITY HAIR ICON?

It has to be Jennifer Lawrence! Her blonde locks have always suited her; she knows what works for her and just goes with it. But she’s not afraid to try new things either; she’s gone from super long to pixie short and always looks amazing. Jennifer is a big style icon too, hair and fashion go hand in hand, and she’s always rocking the latest trends.
