My Story

Level 3 Hairdresser and Hair Extension Specialist with 8 years experience

An Idea Is Born

I've always worn Hair Extensions, I started wearing Clip-ins at the age of 15 and never looked back. Experimenting with my own hair was part of my identity, when looking at myself I wasn't 'ME' without them. At 20 I decided to invest in my first set of semi permanent extensions, hundreds of pounds I spent. I thought I was paying for Micro Rings, I thought they would be luxury, I thought they were 18'. I was very mistaken, everything was not what I thought. I had been ripped off. From that moment I realised I wanted to find a way to do it myself. Then I wanted to offer ladies the change to have what they paid for and me to give it to them. I did my research, took many courses, learning many lessons and fitted many many sets of hair extensions. But it wasn't enough, I wanted to be a Hairstylist too. My experiences in the past with hair extensions are laughable, but 14 years on I still absolutely adore them. 

The one stop shop

I then decided to go back into Hairdressing, I had so much passion and drive and also a goal. My goal was and still is to give ladies what they want, their colour, cut, hair length, hair thickness, style, anything. But truly to give them what they pay for. To educate and make women love they what they have and to take care of their hair and for me to teach them how. I mostly enjoy personalising the service just for you and with fully makeover I book the whole day for you to relax and enjoy and you have my full attention. And from this became my dream. I now have my own home-based Salon and some wonderful loyal guests who I adore. And my door is open for many more...

Having worn clip in extension for a number of years I caused extreme damage to my hair at wits end I stumbled across Azalea Hair and I have never looked back. After spending some time with Leanne she advised me of my different options and was extremely reassuring about the process and how to ensure my own hair was protected.

Leanne is professional and flexible she always gets me in as and when required. I get numerous compliments about how amazing my hair looks but moreover I feel confident and the bonus of all this is my own hair is in great condition. I cannot recommend Azalea Hair Extensions enough!
