CURL SPECIALIST

SONIA CARVALHO

I have been hairdressing for over 20 years. My dream was always to have my own salon and I was inspired by how creative the hairdressing industry is. After gaining my Hairdressing qualification, it was essential that I continued further training to sharpen my skills. These includes Advanced Cutting & Styling, Bridal and Balayage technique at reputable academy's such as L'Oreal Professional and Patrick Cameron. I also obtained an educational Assessor's Award which qualifies me to assess trainee Hairstylist as well as being a State Registered Senior Stylist.

In recent years, I developed a passion for working with curly hair. In 2018, I underwent Lorraine Massey's Curl by Curl Cutting Certification which heightened my skills in cutting curly hair. Having curly hair myself, I can relate to the curly hair experiences that many others faced.

My aim is to help others love and care for their curly hair. My extensive experience in hairdressing has enabled me to develop my own dry cutting technique for curly hair. My colouring method prioritises the hair's health as well as keeping up-to-date with the latest trends. This personalised service will ensure that I achieve your desired look and meet the needs of your hair.
