About Us

In 1986 Benn Holbrook-Morris started his journey under the watchful eye of Vidal Sassoon in London’s West End. Benn quickly developed a passion for hairdressing, which gave him the confidence and talent to enter the L’Oreal Colour Trophy, winning him a place in the grand final.

In the early 90’s Benn joined the Charles Worthington Group, where he spent 6 years further developing his customer service and hairdressing skills. Whilst Head Stylist at the Dorchester Hotel, he looked after many famous guests, including Heads of State, the Sultan of Brunei’s entourage and countless A-List celebrities.

To extend his experience, Benn left Worthingtons to take the position as Artistic Director of the Focus Hair & Beauty Group in Beijing. During this time he gained valuable experience working with Oriental hair.

1999 saw Benn returning to the UK to become a freelance session stylist, working on projects such as the BBC’s Face Value & Value for Money programmes, and supporting Topshop in the ‘Face of the Year’ competition.

As the years progressed, Benn was head hunted by Simon Harris of Headlines Hairdressing Group and he took a position in the Billericay salon bringing him closer to his family in Essex. He continued to thrive as part of the management team, and delivered regular training sessions at the L’Oreal London Academy.

Benn took a year out to travel the world. On arriving back in Essex, he settled in Colchester with a vision for a beautiful, friendly salon to combine excellent customer services with creative hairdressing.
