I love my work and being able to WOW people its my passion. If you want a big change, good advice or just a tidy up I can do this for you.

I have managed big salons and teams and started my own business Tayla'd Styling in November 2014. I have alot of experience with cutting, colouring and placing a cut and colour that suits you, customised to your face shape, skin tone and personality.

Year 2 Apprentice

After leaving Westlake Girls High School last year I attended a course at Cut Above which gave me the opportunity to try a sample of all of their courses. It didn't take long for me to know that Hairdressing is my passion.

I am truly happy that I have been given this opportunity to be part of the Tayla'd Team. I am looking forward to learning and growing the knowledge needed during my apprentice years ahead.

I know that with my new family behind me I'm going to be able to acheive my goals with their help.

I look forward to meeting you all along my journey here at Tayla'd Styling.
