My name is Julie and I personally love to cut and colour hair and I can give you a style that will make all your friends say how you look ‘Amazing’!
I specialise in cutting, colouring, bridal and prom styles. Hairdressing has been not only a career but also a passion that has been with me throughout my life, starting as an Apprentice at one of Hull’s top city centre salons. I love giving people ‘the feel good factor’, helping them build their self esteem and walk out of the salon feeling holistically on top of the world .
I feel that my natural talent is to make my clients feel at ease, and that they are in great professional hands and know that their self-confidence will be lifted to new levels. Many of my clients and staff have become like an extended family and I could not have done it without them. Rest assured you are in the hands of someone who really cares about you and making the world more beautiful.
Throughout my hairdressing career I have always paid great attention to training and keeping up to-date with the new fashions and products.
I have represented my country both internationally and in the UK. I became part of the C.A T British Team, and I was World Festival Champion twice and gained 2 Gold Medals. Representing my country was a huge honour and a whole lot of fun meeting other top stylists from around the Globe.
I have hair dressed in Cannes- South of France, Osaka- Japan, Ecuador, Costa Rica and Honduras. I have also won many, many awards, trophies and certificates from throughout my career.
I love training my staff and apprentices who have also gained many awards including Top apprentices.
I was the youngest Hull Guild of Hairdressing Provincial Master and looked like the Lady Mayoress with may chain of office which I was proud to wear. I was the very proud owner of three salons called Hairaisers International that were very popular and successful, until one day my life changed in a huge way.
I have a strong Faith and felt that God was calling my family and I to train and serve the poorest of the poor and those infected or affected by the HIV Virus, in Honduras Central America.
After much thought, prayer and study my husband and I both received a B.A.M in Hon degree in Theology and Ministry, and then went to Costa Rica with our children for a year to learn the Spanish Language and then on to work alongside a local church in Choluteca Honduras, where we served and worked with very poor communities, helping to bring awareness to the stigma and discrimination and the true facts on how you can actually contract the virus. We raised the money to buy land to build a community project on and which gave houses to those who did not have one. Also children’s homes that they could call their own until they no longer needed it, giving them a family life, education and food and love. It was an amazing and heart breaking time and one that I would never change.
Hairdressing has been such an amazing gift to have as it has not only helped me and my family keep a roof over our heads but also bring joy into many peoples lives who could not afford to have their hair done or learn how to do it themselves.
Recently, I have worked mobile and also at Jubilee Church Hull as a pastoral leader and Life College manager. Working with the homeless and those whose lives are chaotic and need help, or an ear to listen to them. I could not have done any of this had I not had experience with the public in a listening capacity.
I am so proud of my family, Husband Ian, Son Casey Adam, and Daughter Loren Addie and Son-in-law Paul. Loren and I could not do this without you by our sides.
