My break into TV really began after I won a competition hosted by This Morning - the audience voted me as their favourite elite stylist! It was great being on TV and sharing my knowledge to help viewers create the same looks at home.
Since then, I haven’t held back in making appearances on a number of other shows and i've learnt so much along the way. I'de definitely say some of my most innovative ideas have stemmed from my TV experiences!
Some TV appearances have involved teaching and mentoring - what a compliment to be asked! A particular favourite was my involvement in Celebrity Scissorhands, a TV show raising money for BBC's Children in Need appeal. I was involved for three series, training a team of nine celebrities to cut hair in just two weeks!
Other TV appearances have been more intimate. During my time on Secret Millionaire I got to meet some amazing people from under privileged backgrounds. They were an inspiration. I had experienced similar difficult periods in my life - it was quite an experience to see others going through the same. I'm so pleased I did the show as not only did I get to help some extraordinary people, it also gave me the chance to reflect on my own life experiences.
Other TV appearances include: The Weakest Link, The Hairdresser, Britain’s Next Top Model, CD:UK, Cosmopolitan’s 50 Ways To Please Your Man, Essex Wives and Ready, Steady, Cook
