In my kitbag

I’m the creative director and trichologist at our salon (Russell Eaton) in Leeds, a Wella Professionals Mentor and the European brand ambassador for electricals brand Hot Tools Professional, so I have a lot of different areas to focus on and I like to be prepared for anything! I believe that to create really great work you need to have tools that you love using and that allow you to work as quickly and efficiently as possible. I also love trying out new tools to find the perfect ones for me.

My kitbag includes:

Hot Tools 24k Gold Curling Irons in all five sizes: 19mm, 25mm, 32mm, 32 Extra Long and the 38mm. I also have the 25mm Gold Titanium Flat Iron and Cool Touch Hairdryer from the core Hot Tools range. And of course, my kitbag wouldn’t be complete without the incredible CurlBar. This curling wand is such an innovation and has revolutionised the way stylists, including myself, create flawless curls.

Alongside my tools I never head out without a range of top brushes.

As a colourist I’m passionate about having a great selection of wefts and hair pieces in a range of creative colours ­– for me they are an essential part of my kit.
