Stephanie and Sarah (The Owners)
Stephanie and Sarah started their careers at the previous salon Zhuzh hair going back 14 years ago. Whilst deciding to go their own ways working for places like HOB salon and Hair and Beauty Workshop, the salon was always in their hearts and that is what has drawn them back to date. Zhuzh Hair got taken over back in 2016 under new management but with hard work and great determination, Stephanie and Sarah are now the proud owners of Willow and Blush.

Meet the Team...
Stephanie (senior stylist)
There is no better feeling than making someone feel better in themselves. Whether it’s a fresh new look, or someone coming in for a weekly blow-dry and chit chat, I pride myself on giving them a nice experience in my chair. I've always loved keeping up to date with the latest fashions and trends, so I like to express that creativity in my work.
Sarah (senior stylist)
I'm so proud to be the co-owner of Willow and Blush. My career started at this shop when I was a Saturday girl at 14. I went on to complete my apprenticeship, gain my experience and build up my clientele ever since. I have always had an eye for hairdressing and I never thought I would become an owner of my own salon. I couldn’t have done it without my loyal clients and of course colleagues.
Amy (senior stylist)
I've worked at the salon for the past 8 years. Never did I think that from being a junior that I would have worked my way up to a senior stylist and have all the amazing clients that I have now. My favourite thing about working at Willow and Blush is that were not just work colleagues, were a little family. If I had to pick one of my favourite hair styles, it would be a balayage because I love being creative with colour.
Kim (senior stylist)
With 15+ years working as a hairdresser I still have the same passion as from the day I first started, working with a great group of girls the salon atmosphere is fab. I enjoy all of my work but have a real love for hair up and especially for bridal parties helping them feel special on their big day.
Rachel (junior stylist)
I started off at Willow and Blush back in July 2017 as a Saturday girl. I then went to collage to study hairdressing full time and worked two days a week in the salon to gain experience. After Qualifying in June 2019, I am now a full-time junior stylist ready to start my career and build up my clientele. I've always loved doing hair so it’s a bonus that I can do something I love with people who love their jobs too.
December 2018, is where I started off my hairdressing career. I am currently doing an apprenticeship where I am training for my NVQ level 2 which I will fully complete in June 2020. I cannot wait to qualify and get on the shop floor where I will be able to build my clientele. Working with Willow and Blush’s owners has really pushed me with my training as the girls are teaching all different techniques and allowing me weekly models to build my portfolio and client base. Willow and Blush is a joyful, happy and fun salon to work in and we all get on so well whilst giving a great service to our clients.
I started at Willow and Blush early October 2019, to pursue my career in hairdressing. I am currently an apprentice studying level 2 hairdressing. Many people say I'm creative, bubbly, funny easy-going person with a kind heart.
