To get to know our incredible salon team better, we asked them to let us know their hair crushes (male and female), favourite products, and top tips they share with their clients.
Name: GERALD SMITH
Position: SENIOR TOP STYLIST / ASSISTANT MANAGER
Salon: TREVOR SORBIE HAMPSTEAD
Who are your celebrity hair crushes?
Sienna Miller: No matter her hair length or style she always manages to look effortless, which is surprisingly hard to do!
Jon Kortajarena: He has a real understated coolness about him and his style.
What are your favourite hair products?
Trevor Sorbie Salon Approved Styling Invisible Hold Mousse: This is a fantastic product for blow dries and hair up – it gives the hair texture and hold without being sticky or greasy.
Kérastase Resistance Therapiste: This range is fantastic and helps bring really damaged hair back from the dead!
What are your top tips for clients?
1. First and most important….come and see me obviously!
2. Be realistic with your style – you want something that will suit you but that you’re also prepared to upkeep and style yourself at home. If you like to let your hair dry naturally every day then a cut that requires blow drying and straightening to look perfect won’t be right for you.
3. Use key products – you don’t need to go overboard and start using a huge selection of products, but getting into the routine of using one or two will revolutionise how you do your hair at home, and how it looks!
