Hi my name is Becky and i have been hairdressing for 7 years. I joined Browns in January 2016.

I started as an apprentice at Rush Hair and worked hard to become a stylist gaining valuable experience and training throughout my time with them.In Sept 2014 myself and my partner traveled to Australia on a 1 years sabbatical in which i found work in a hair salon. I had to adapt to my new surroundings  and the use of new styling products. I enjoyed every minute of my life experience and that has given me more confidence with my cutting and colouring techniques.
