Meet Subrina Kidd – freelance hair stylist and texture expert at The Collective
Textured hair expert and freelance hair artist, Subrina Kidd has been in the hairdressing industry for as long as she can remember. From begging for a job when she was just 12 years old as a Saturday ‘Junior’ at a Japanese Hairdressers in St John’s Wood to training up as an apprentice at Kensington’s Toni&Guy, aged 17, before joining the ranks of Aveda, Subrina is no newbie to the world of hair. Despite an undeniably diverse skillset, Subrina has most notably made a name for herself as the go-to specialist on all things textured hair, being quoted for her knowledge and expertise in publications such as British Vogue, Vanity Fair, Tatler and Marie Claire.
Now, working as a freelance hairstylist, based at a beautiful salon called The Collective in Marylebone, Subrina splits her time between her countless projects – whether working with global haircare brands like Aveda or collaborating with high-profile clients such as Jennifer Hudson and Naomie Harris.
