Meet the Team: Interview with Rhea

It’s time to meet another member of the team! This month we interviewed long-standing member of staff Rhea to find out a little more about her life as a hairdresser in Bristol! Don’t forget to check out the blog to meet several of our other members of staff.

WHAT IS YOUR JOB ROLE AT CENTRAL STUDIO AND HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING HERE?

I’m a Style Director and have been working at Central Studio for more than 14 years now; I’m also head of the wedding hair team creating beautiful styles that give our brides as much confidence as possible on their big day.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN HAIRDRESSING IN TOTAL?

For 16 years, most of my career has been spent in this salon.

HOW DID YOU GET INTO HAIRDRESSING?

Hair has always been a passion of mine so I was thrilled to take the opportunity to turn it into a career.

DESCRIBE A NORMAL DAY AT CENTRAL STUDIO.

There’s never a dull moment in our salon, it’s always busy in the salon and incredibly fun!

WHATS YOUR FAVOURITE THING ABOUT WORKING FOR CENTRAL STUDIO?

I think it’s incredibly important to build a level of trust with both my clients and the others within the team, getting to chat to such a range of people and give them a stunning hairstyle is very rewarding.

IF YOU COULD IMPART ONE PIECE OF HAIRDRESSING WISDOM WITH YOUR CUSTOMERS, WHAT WOULD IT BE? 

Always use good quality products, and if you can’t find the right product for you, make sure you ask your hairdresser to give you a little of their wisdom!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE HAIR STYLE AND COLOUR AT THE MOMENT?

I love cropped pre-lightened hairstyles.

DO YOU HAVE A STYLE ICON WHEN IT COMES TO HAIR, AND IF SO WHO?

Valentina Muntoni from Rat and Boa!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE BRAND OF SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER? 

Kerastase, of course! It’s a salon favourite and never fails to please us all.

WHICH HAIR PRODUCT COULD YOU NOT LIVE WITHOUT?

Texture dust, I love it!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FOOD?

I’m not sure I could name just one, I LOVE FOOD!

WHAT ELSE DO YOU GET UP TO WHILE YOU’RE NOT AT WORK? ANY HOBBIES, SPORTS, ETC?

I love to head out shopping and am a self-confessed fashion follower so I love to see what the latest trends are in both hair and clothing! I also enjoy heading out for food and a night out partying with friends.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE TV SHOWS?

I love anything in a box set!

Have you got any other questions you’d like to hear the answers to from Rhea or any other members of our team? Let us know via social media or in the comments!

I have been coming to the salon for over 20 years - I guess that says it all!
