Frances Anne is about hairdressing and hairdressing is about you!
When Frances Anne opened, many years ago, we wanted to make a difference. Back in those exciting days everything was changing, a whole new world of opportunity was opening up. Daring new styles were becoming popular. New treatments were available. The fashion world was influenced by the likes of Vidal Sasoon and Coco Chanel. Suddenly anything was possible, you could have your hair cut, coloured and styled the way YOU wanted. Hairdressing was about YOU.
We are still just as enthusiastic about what we do and still want to make a difference. We would be delighted to talk about what we could do for YOU.
Paul has worked with Anne for many years. Originally trained in Kensington, London, he went on to develop his career as a stylist at Sassoons. Haircutting always his first love, he joined L’Oreal and spent 13 years with them as their Technical Manager. Responsible for all their training across the UK, working alongside household names such as Toni & Guy, Anthony Mascola and Annie Humphries. Later joining InterHair Training as a director, he has often been in demand for society weddings.
Paul feels he has now almost gone full circle but finds that he still has the same enthusiasm and enjoyment for working with individual clients.
Anne is the founder of Frances Anne which she established in 1972. Anne is passionate about her profession, and though the salon has changed over the years her ethos has always remained the same. Hairdressing is about more than just cutting hair, it's about caring for the hair itself and about the person who wears it.
Despite being busy running the salon, she has always taken time to ensure that she is abreast of the latest trends and techniques, attending training sessions at some of the leading London salons such as Sassoon’s and Toni & Guy. Along with product training with L'Oreal and Redken, which provides great insight into the chemistry and nature of hair. Allowing her to maintain the highest professional standards at all times.
It's not all just about work (well most of it is!) Any time off, she will try to spend riding, and has a great love for and knowledge of horses.
