I first started my hairdressing career at the age of 14 as a Saturday girl. On leaving school aged 16 I became an apprentice where I trained in college 1 day a week and a salon 4 days a week. I qualified in level 2 & 3 hairdressing aged 18 and was running a full column enabling me to be creative in the salon.

After 4 years being salon based I wanted a new challenge and chose to further my career abroad. I moved to Australia where I worked on board a luxury cruise liner creating 5* hair on board a 5* luxury cruise liner. I spent 9 months on board before my contract ended and I flew back to Manchester. Then aged 20 I got a job managing a local salon which gave me the foundations and business skills to run a successful salon. Following this I decided to become self-employed and rented a chair in a beauty salon rebuilding my client base. It quickly became very successful and clients from my first salon began to travel to where I was based.

Social media took off and celebrities began to notice my work. I became so busy I was able to open my own salon 'Hair By Charlotte.' My dream come true! I am now fully booked up to 2 - 3 months in advance; I have enhanced my qualifications with level 4 colour training. I received an award in colour from Kevin Murphy, and completed Hollywood colour blend training with Catherine Boden.

I now have a team of stylists working alongside me in which I have trained to my standard. I have worked on many models and celebrities and have travelled to other countries to work on fashion shows and showcase my work. We have clients travel to us from all over the world. Some fly in as far as China and Dubai for an appointment with me. We also have many regulars from London and Birmingham. I am continuing to build my empire to give every woman that amazing hair they deserve.

Thank you to all my loyal customers for your continued support.
