Say Hello to our next Schwarzkopf Professional Ambassador we want to introduce you: the lovely Lesley Lawson. She began her career in 1984 at a prestigious London hair academy, and spent 18 years travelling the globe working on shows, seminars and advertising. Lesley then joined the fabulous Real salon, where she tends to a high-profile clientele that includes Gwyneth Paltrow or Elle Macpherson. Lesley who is very well-dressed herself has also worked on fashion shows for the likes of John Richmond, Raf Simons, and Alexander McQueen.
Lesley has a love for the entire hair profession but her absolute passion is colour because she believes all hair can look even more amazing with the addition of colour. She says: “When you understand skin tones and the colour wheel it’s so satisfying to be able to make people look and feel more gorgeous which is such a great feeling.”
When asking Lesley how she made her way to Essential Looks, she goes back to the past:
“I knew the inspiring Tyler and Simon Ellis from working at Vidal Sassoon when I was asked over to Hamburg for a meeting to discuss the relaunch of “Vibrance” seven years ago. From there I was invited to work on my first Essential Looks – and the rest as they say is history!” A pretty history, and very inspiring – especially if you know how often Lesley does colour her hair: “It grows so fast that I colour my hair every 3 weeks – most of the time I find myself more often than not in a hotel bathroom gloves on and applying the colour myself since I am away a lot.”
