Hi, My name is Harrie, Creative Designer at Feathers Colchester. I have been hairdressing for nearly 5 years. I was very fortunate to be part of the Eufora Educational Team 2016 which opened up opportunities for me to become an Educator, giving me huge amounts of confidence behind the chair. I am an individual with a passion for self image so I love making my clients feel good by giving them an experience that doesn’t last just 45 minutes, but for 6 weeks until their next appointment. I make myself the best hairdresser I can be by attending as many courses and training events as possible. I believe education is the key to success. I would love to do your hair and I look forward to welcoming you to the salon.
Currently on Maternity Leave.
