I’m a nature loving hairstylist, yoga teacher, dance enthusiast and owner of Sun, Moon & Scissors.
I’ve been working in the hairdressing industry since 2002 and this year (2022) I’m celebrating 20 years of working with hair! I opened my first hair salon Scarlett Studio, on the Cowley Road in Oxford in 2007-2012 and since then I’ve worked freelance at St Clements Hair and traveled to my clients homes all over Oxford by bicycle. I am beyond excited to have created a new home for my hairdressing work in East Oxford!
Sun, Moon & Scissors is a small private hair studio, based within Every Body Studio in the heart of East Oxford. My intention is to create a space that feels relaxing and peaceful and like a treat to visit, but with all the comfort of being in a living room. In a busy, fast paced world a hair appointment can be time to slow down, time just for you.
I love working with people and believe that good communication is the key to creating the hair that you love. From the studio I offer a range of cutting services including razor cutting, re-styling and luxury organic colouring services and treatments. I love to create beautiful natural looking colour and also have a passion for bright, vibrant shades and pastels. I think of myself as an intuitive cutter, feeling my way, watching the way your hair moves and falls and working to enhance your natural hair texture. At Sun, Moon & Scissors I offer a gender neutral pricing structure where pricing is based on the service and time required for your appointment instead of your gender.
It is important to me that the way that I work has minimal impact on the Earth and I continue to make efforts to work in a sustainable and planet friendly way. I use Organic Colour Systems, whose products are cruelty free and vegan friendly and use high levels of organic & natural ingredients. I am also a member of the Green Salon Collective who recycle what was previously un-recyclable waste in the hairdressing industry. All services include a ‘green fee’ which pays for my waste to be collected by the Green Salon Collective and enables me to work towards becoming a zero waste studio.
I know hair salons can sometimes feel scary or intimidating and I intend to offer a non- judgemental environment where you are welcome as you are.
