Sam is an award-winning hair stylist whose creativity and innovative designs have inspired international campaigns and brands globally. Whilst Sam’s work has attracted numerous international and high profile clients, it is his roots in South London and the capital’s vibrant street culture that inspire his visions.
Sam began his hairdressing career in a royal-warranted Mayfair salon, where he trained and developed his skills in finishing techniques. In 1999, Sam joined an emerging salon group where he studied technical cutting and colouring in depth. Sam quickly proved himself to be an inspiring member of the Artistic Team and travelled the world as an Artistic Director, working on campaigns, product development and educational media for a variety of global brands, at international shows and for brand imagery design.
At just 23 years old, Sam won the prestigious Newcomer of the Year award at the British Hairdressing Awards and was honoured as a member of the 2004 Fellowship F.A.M.E team.
