Director Pauline owns Genesis Hair Company and has been in the industry for nearly 40 years. She actually started her career at Genesis but has since gained experience elsewhere before returning to the salon she loves. 

Which hairstyles or colours do you love to create?   I love doing an inverted bob, long layered hair styles and short edgy styles. I also love all aspects of colouring especially when it accentuates the style I’m creating.

What do you love about your job?   I love the licence to please and thrill.  I can complete a client’s look or create a style that complements their facial features. So, when the client leaves our salon, they go out with a smile and a confident walk, as if they have had a lovely chat and a coffee with a friend. They feel uplifted and happy.

Which celebrity hair would you like to get your hands on? Kelly Osbourne… because I can do better.

Who or what inspires you to create fabulous hair?  Katy Perry because she has a creative look and every look is different. Also the Wella artistic team and my Genesis team colleagues.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which three products would you want with you?  The three items I would take if I went to a desert island would be Kerastase Ciment Thermique, Shampoo and Conditioner.

How would you describe yourself… in three words? Experienced, trustworthy and approachable.

I am delighted to have moved back south because travelling from Edinburgh for Pauline to work her magic on my hair was a bit challenging
