Our Team At Philosophi
The experience behind our hairdressing
Kate has been at Philosophi for 14 years, and has been hairdressing for 30 years. She trained at Vidal Sassoon and worked in London and Chicago before joining Philosophi. A colouring specialist, in particular colour correction, Kate likes to work with our clients and find out what type of colour is right for their lifestyle in terms of maintenance, condition and sustainability.
Her top hair care tip is to find a good colourist and stick with them, and her favourite products are from Wella Colour, who are at the forefront of training and technology when it comes to hair colouring. Outside of work, Kate loves hitting the gym and likes Bikram Yoga.
Fiona is our co-owner and co-founded Philosophi Hairdressing in the summer of 2000. With over 30 years of hairdressing experience, Fiona is a cutting specialist and helps develop the training program for our younger team members. She uses her extensive technical skills and experience to work with our clients to find the perfect cut which complements their style and the shape of their face.
Her top hair care tip is to build a loyal relationship with your hairdresser and let them get to know your hair. As well as our excellent products, Fiona relies on our superb team to keep Philosophi running smoothly day-to-day. Outside of work, she loves spending time with her family and red wine.
Sean has been at Philosophi for three years, and has been hairdressing for 14 years. Having trained at Vidal Sassoon, he specialises in all aspects of cutting and barbering, and believes that the key ingredient for a great haircut is thorough consultation with the client to find out their individual style and what they want.
Sean believes that each client should find out what works best for their hair, and his favourite tool of the trade is medium GHD irons because they are an incredibly versatile styling tool. Outside of work, he likes socialising and swing dancing.
Lynsey has been with us for 14 years since joining us in 2003 where she joined us after her first ever job application. She has had a fascination with hair and how it’s styled from a very early age, and has never seen herself doing anything else.
Since joining us, she hasn’t looked back and in addition to over a decade of valuable experience, Lynsey has completed numerous cutting and colouring courses. She is passionate about producing creative, trendy hairstyles and ensuring that all of her clients are happy with her work.
Simone is our new stylist, and has been with Philosophi for four years since she started hairdressing straight out of school. Having recently completed her training at Philosophi, Simone is now ready to use her versatile skills on the salon floor, and she is also coming towards the end of her Wella master colour expert course, which is the industry’s most prestigious colour course!
Her favourite professional tool is the GHD ceramic round brush because we all know bigger is better… when it comes to hair! When she’s not in the salon, Simone can be found cycling around the city on her big blue bike (with a basket).
Lesley has been at Philosophi for over two years and is currently in her last year of training. Since joining us, Lesley has learned so much from our stylists which will be beneficial when she joins the senior team on the salon floor. She has learned a number of different methods and techniques to help our future clients. After all, no two are the same!
As salon assistant, Lesley is the go to girl on the salon floor. She helps everything run smoothly on a daily basis, and helps keep the salon in order as well as helping out whenever she can. Outside of work, Lesley is interested in fashion, and loves expressing creativity through her hair, clothes & makeup, and she also enjoys reading as well as spending time with family, friends and her boyfriend.
