My advice – Sophia Hilton

“Learn to style really, really well. Not Another Salon gets asked so often: “What shine spray do you use?”, “What straighteners are they?”. We actually barely use products and we have a million different straighteners in the salon – it’s simply technique. To be fair we lean towards the KeraStraight irons a lot, because you can turn the temperature down. If you have even straightened on high heat after you’ve done a creative colour, you’ll know it can instantly strip the colour to a weird unintentional shade. It’s terrifying! Even on my colour courses we go over styling because sadly, in this era, when you’re trying to build a career, it didn’t happen if you didn’t get a good picture.”
