Lisa first got hooked on salon life as a Saturday girl with her local hairdresser. She fell in love with the creativity, energy and conversation and never looked back.

A self-confessed social creature who loves the buzz of being close to the action, Lisa was in her element as her knowledge of food, wine, music and fashion grew and blossomed.

Moving to Cambridge, she identified The Sample Room as a top salon and worked here for several years before buying the business shortly before lockdown in 2020. Her knowledge of hospitality inspired Lisa to create a whole new standard of client care and she envisioned a salon where a similarly relaxing, uplifting and optimistic environment could exist.
