PRICE BAND A
With a career spanning over 35 years, Arran began cutting hair at 14, when he asked his mum, a former London hairdresser for tips on how to cut his schoolmates’ hair.
Having completed his training in Brighton, Arran moved to London working for a notable hairdressing group working his way up the ranks, doing numerous hair shows and courses.
After working in London for 3 years, Arran went on to open his first salon near Windsor at 22, enjoying the challenge of being a salon owner there for nearly 10 years. From there, Arran wanted to spread his wings and pursued an opportunity running a chain of hair salons in Johanessburg South Africa for 2 years, before returning to the U.K to join Crowns Hairdressing Group as the Franchisee in Worthing. He is now very proud to open his new boutique style salon in the idyllic village of East Preston, West Sussex.
Arran loves, precision cutting, total restyles, his French Bulldog, playing the guitar and his wife & 2 boys.

Layla joined the team in July 2020.
She began her hairdressing career at 15, helping out at a local salon near where she grew up in New Malden. After Uni, she ended up falling into a corporate job but soon discovered her passion lay elsewhere. She then went on and trained at SAKS Academy passing with a distinction. This gave her the opportunity to secure a position at Headmasters in Wimbledon where she quickly gained experience and sharpened her skills further. Eventually, her skill set allowed her to head up training courses on cutting and colouring. With a yearning for travel, she has more recently been working overseas, in Antigua and Palma, styling the hair of the yachting community and building quite a following. She is a masterful cutter and her balayage skill and colour correction knowledge is second to none.
Layla is an accomplished musician and vocalist and also loves meditation
