I spent my early youth in West Africa, where hair is an important part of one’s identity and I was fascinated by hairstyles from an early age. I got to know the social, aesthetic and technical side of hair dos from my six sisters. The passion took me to New York, Paris and London where I trained as a hairstylist.
Since 2006 I have been practising in Amsterdam, gaining experience through my work in various salons. My specialist colour training course at Vidal Sassoon in London was a high point in my development. I have developed a diverse clientele who have encouraged me to set up my own operation, a salon or as some of my clients say an 'atelier'.
