Sophie 
Having worked my way up from Saturday girl in my final year of school(2005) I have been very fortunate to go on to complete NVQ level 1 and 2 with much help and guidance from Joe. I am now MASTER Colour Specialist. To me colour is just as important as the hair cut, whether your having your regrowth touched up or a complete colour change, it’s so vital and I love to make people look and feel fantastic. I have a MASTER Colour Degree, which sets me apart from other colourists as I'm totally passionate about all aspects of colour. 
Kat 
Hi I am Kat, I have been hairdressing 25 years, I started my career straight from school on a day release basis undertaking a Y.T.S apprenticeship at Raymond’s college where I achieved my GNVQ levels 1 and 2. After gaining further work experience I then progressed and achieved my GNVQ level 3. I have been a Senior Stylist at Austen’s for over 18 years now and during my time here I have been on many courses ranging from retail education and various cutting and colouring courses, all of these have helped me maintain my knowledge of the industry and helps me to give a professional service to the clients that visit Austen’s. I work two days a week at the moment as I have 3 lovely children but when in the salon I enjoy my time there as it’s like a home from home. 
Laura 
Hi I'm Laura, I became part of the team in 2014 as a Saturday girl, I'm now a graduate stylist, I have my NVQ Level 2 qualification and have recently qualified my NVQ level 2 barbering, in just start my NVQ level 3 which I'm really looking forward to. I love working at the salon especially as my clientele is starting to grow I also really enjoy furthering my knowledge of hairdressing and learning from the other stylists. I'm looking forward to continue growing my experience at Austens.

Rosie 
Hi I'm Rosie, since leaving school I went to college, whilst there I came to Austen's to do some work experience which I enjoyed so much I decided to stay! I'm looking forward to learning about the hair industry and learning as much as I can from the Austen's team. 
Hi I'm William, I have a wealth of experience with on trend and progressive hairdressing and having worked with many brands over the years I feel I have an extensive and wide range of training knowledge. I also love all aspects of colour including colour correction and I really enjoy utilising progressive techniques and if your up for it experimenting with new looks and styles - my aim is to always satisfy the guest.
