Amanda Oxley – Salon Owner
Colour is make-up for hair… When someone comes to me to have their hair cut and coloured I take into account everything. Colour can really make or break someone’s look and can be life changing. Hair colour has come a long way in recent years and with the abundance of hair colouring techniques, it can be a real challenge for my you to know what to do with their colour. That’s why I take the time to sit and really listen to what you want to achieve with your colour and also the maintenance side of colouring.
Amanda is born in London and has over 30 years experience in the hairdressing industry, having worked and trained with London’s highly respected hairdressers in our industry, at the age of 15 she started a Saturday job, this is where she discovered her passion for hair and working with people, people instantly warm to her bubbly personality and love and passion of hair.
When leaving school she completed her hairdressing apprenticeship at London’s most famous colour salon, Daniel Galvin in George street. It was here that Amanda grew her passion and talent for hair colouring. She gained skills and techniques that are unique any where in the world, after many years of working in London and working on high end celebrity clients she decided to use her knowledge and joined the Toni and guy team in London where she was responsible for going in to different salons to train and assess junior stylists, whilst working in this role she attended university and completed a degree in education at the London institute.
When this was completed she moved to West Herts college working as a full time hairdressing lecturer, running several hairdressing groups from school leaver beginner’s to more mature groups on Saturdays, whilst doing this Amanda kept her hand in by working part time at a salon.
It was inspiring to be able to share my knowledge with the younger generation and give back. since moving to the coast she has won various awards for her hairdressing and two years running as a business finalist.
She has worked on tv shoots and her hobbies are horse ridding, hiking and cooking.
