About Helen Gee Hairdressing
Our philosophy: “Every client is a unique individual. Whilst it is important that a hairstyle is tailored to suit a client’s physical attributes, such as face shape and hair texture, it is equally important that it reflects their personality and lifestyle.”
Helen’s career began with a Vidal Sassoon style training in precision cutting. From working as a stylist in a local salon Helen progressed to become the manager and then the owner. After several years Helen moved to London having been offered the opportunity to work for the legendary master of hair, John Frieda, at his London salon. During this time Helen developed her expertise and professionalism whilst working with a discerning and demanding clientele.
Her creativity was further inspired by working alongside other world class hair stylists and influential fashion designers at the fashion shows in London, Paris and Milan.
Creating new looks at the shows and styling hair at fashion shoots for glossy magazines such as Vogue, She, Company and Looks meant always being one step ahead of current trends.
The list of celebrities whose hair Helen has coiffed includes models, Naomi Campbell, Yasmin Le Bon and Laura Bailey and “it girls”,Tamara Beckworth, Sophie Anderton and Donna Air.
After spending ten years living and working in London Helen decided that the time was right to return to Cumbria and open Helen Gee Hairdressing.
Helen offers services in cutting, blow-drying, colouring and styling, including bridal hair.
