Hello everyone!

Just a quick post to introduce myself! 

My name is Chloe, I'm 24 and a hairstylist from Wales, UK. 

I've been qualified for two years - I started training in 2006.  I decided to start this blog as I love hair and I love talkingabout hair.  I can't resist bursting into hair discussions on Twitter!  I'm really interested in the science and mathematics behind hairdressing - you'd be surprised how much there is! I'm still learning new things all the time and I hope to share some of these things with you!

I started hairdressing at the relatively late age of 19, I'd finished school, attended college and took some very academic A Levels but absolutely hated it!  As a result I barely gained grades at all.  I took a year out from study to work part time in a customer service job and hated it so much that I applied for hairdressing college four months in and gained a place! I've been doing it ever since and I'm glad I took the plunge. 

As for my own hair type, I have red (dyed) hair - I usually dye it the shade 6.66 (Extra Red Blonde) and top this up with various pillar box red semi-permanent colours - but sometimes I'll play about with whatever odds and ends we have left in work!  There isn't a colour I haven't been, my most recent colour changes have been orange, platinum and blue! 
I have finely textured hair and not an awful lot of it on top, I have to be careful with how I cut and style it so that I don't show off too much scalp.  Last year I shaved about half of my head into a mohawk style and I've been growing it for 11 months - it got so short that I couldn't do all that much to have a change and I really fancy having longer hair!  So right now, I find it hard to style, as it's lacking a decent shape.

I'm currently working on preparing some blog posts - I want to do a mix of science based articles, how to's, tutorials and reviews.  I'll be photographing a 'hair-up' piece tomorrow evening and I know that some of my first posts will cover the basics of hair colouring.  I would like to know if you have any specific requests or suggestions, you can email me at, tweet me @CherryfiedChloe or leave a comment in this post.

Thank you!
