The Team

Sam Bright Level4

Hi I’m Boss Sam (there are a few Sam’s in the salon)

You’re experience with me at Woo will be personalised for you, I will help you to set realistic hair goals whilst maintaining fabulous hair health, talking you through step by step guidance of products, tools and tips enabling you to recreate your salon look and condition at home.

I have been in the hairdressing for over 35 years. I am passionate about my work and feel extremely thankful that I have a career that I love and look forward to going to every day. My staff and I always continue to re- train and go on many courses enabling us stay up to date and focused on latest trends and fashion.

My experiences include working in top salons and traveling the world. I have also worked with some top names such as Vivenne Westwood and Matthew Williamson.

I was fortunate to work on a five star cruise line which enabled me to be able to handle many different cultures and hair types. I also worked in a salon in Israel before coming home to England enabling me to bring my huge knowledge and expertise to my guests.

Change is a very important factor in anyone’s life and we like to encourage this with our guests’s styles. I specialise in all fields of hairdressing including wedding hair up and colour techniques.

I am a strong minded business woman and have successfully built a strong business ethos and have won many acolades both local and within the hairdressing industry

I love colouring my hair and changing my look, spending time with family/friends walking my dogs Bertie and Olive, gardening, cooking, socialising.

i really look forward to welcoming you into my chair.

 

Cat Level 3

Hi I’m Cat

I have been hairdressing for 13 years and have worked with some fantastic people that have taught me everything I know. I have gained valuable experience dealing with individuals, whether it’s within the salon, photo/fashion shoots, seminars, shows/ stage work, I have met some amazing people whilst doing so.

I have worked with celebrities from television shows such as Britain’s Next Top Model, Strictly Come Dancing and English/American hit TV show ‘Salon Swap’ with Celebrity Hairdresser Lee Stafford. I’ve been a part of England’s biggest hairdressing shows and seminars for the world’s leading professional bands such as, Redken, L’oreal and Goldwell, I worked on stage at The Vitality Show at Salon International. I’ve also done a lot of photo shoots, organised models for competition work and worked behind the scenes on a hit educational website Myhairdressers.com, I was even a finalist in salon awards for future talent and colourist of the year. 

I have worked at Woo for over 10 years and enjoy every minute of it, I love my Woo family and guests.

In last few years my passion has turned to wedding hair and hair ups for special occasions, that’s not to say I don’t love a good cut and colour. I can’t wait to see you in my chair.

Boy Sam Level 3

Hi I’m Boy Sam

I joined the Woo Team in June 2014. I have gained so much knowledge from attending courses, seminars and watching how other stylists work. I love to share my knowledge and experience with the young assistants coming through. Colouring for haircuts is probably one of my favourite things to do. Out of work I enjoy running (I ran London marathon) going to the gym, socialising with friends and family, and spending time with my gorgeous nephews and godchildren. I am fortunate to have travelled to many places and look forward to seeing more in the years to come! 

Sarah Level 2

Hi I’m Sarah,

I’m 39 years old and I have been hairdressing 20 years now. I have two children Lottie and Freddie who are my everything, however when I walk through the salon doors I have a new lease of life “FREEDOM TO BE ME AGAIN”

I love every part of hairdressing but my absolute favourite thing to do is a graduated bob, I’m not gonna lie “I’m pretty amazing at them” I love my job, most of my guests know I love a good chat with my colleagues and guests…. My hobbies out of work… mmm well I Used to enjoy  the gym and going out, but now my hobbies are looking after my family and keeping my beautiful  house tidy, to be fair I enjoy that !

I work as much as I possibly can at the salon. I will accommodate to try and fit anyone in out of my normal working hours if needed.

I look forward to seeing you in the near future to give you the haircut and colour of your dreams. “if you’re looking for a big bouncey blowdry (least favourite) please don’t book with me”(lol) all the others are amazing at them. xxxx

Samantha Level 3

Hi I’m Samantha

I’ve been with this fabulous company from the first year we openend, 15 years ago. Minus a couple of gaps here and there where I took the time to raise my beautiful family. 

As a Senior Stylist at WOO , I’m all about “time and experience”.

Quality time and your experience.

I want you to enjoy an uplifting and bespoke approach to your visit as a valued guest of Woo. 

We use the best products and tools to give you the look that you want when you walk out of our door. 

I’ll also help you, utilising my experience of 23 years in this incredible industry, to recreate that look again and again by yourself at home. So you truly get the most out of your time with me. 

I adore long hair, so whether it’s a soft cut and a long romantic blow dry or a beautiful day look with your hair up. Whatever you’re looking for, I’d love to achieve these for you. 

However I’m also a major lover of a clean line and a sharp cut with a crazy eye for detail within a short look or a strong clipper look. 

I love a plan, so working towards you’re  hair goal long term is super satisfying for me. 

Whether it’s with a colour change collaboration, or beautiful extensions installed in a variety of ways, to enhance, colour, length or volume, or just taking it back to the simplicity of really working regaining you’re hair health .

Getting to know you and building a relationship with each other will bring you new confidence in your hair choices. I’m really looking forward to being a part of that journey. xxx
