What’s your instant pick-me-up?
Anything with chocolate in – that can be hot chocolate, chocolate buttons or biscuits.
Your sing into the hairbrush karaoke song?
Anything from the Spice Girls – if I had to choose one it would be Wannabe. Emma is my favourite.
What would your hair be like without your favourite Tangle Teezer hairbrush?
It would be flat! I use the Back-Combing Hairbrush to create sections, pintail and pull up to create volume.
Your biggest influence?
I’m influenced by trends. I look beyond hair and take inspiration from a hat with woven detail. I’m always looking at shapes and textures.
What would your hair hashtag be?
If I wasn’t an influencer I would be...
I would definitely do something involved with hair and it would be pretty avant-garde!
How does your hair like to wake up?
It’s crazy. A big tangled mess. It’s definitely Tangle Teezer to the rescue!
