How would you describe yourself in three words?

Motivated, driven, and creative. 

What was your dream job when you were younger? Have you always had a passion for hair?

When I was younger, I always wanted to be a hairdresser, and I had a natural flair and talent for hairdressing. Here I am making my younger self proud!

What are your favourite hairstyles/looks to create?

My favourite looks to create are 100% a nice, bright icy blonde.

How did you become an expert in blondes and balayage?

After a lot of self-teaching and research. As well as inspiring to be like some of my favourite stylists.

If you could choose any celebrities hair to do who would it be and why?

Anyone who knows me will guess this in 0.1 seconds. It is Molly Mae! I would LOVE to recreate her beachy blonde hair!

Who/what inspires you as a hairstylist?

I inspire myself to be a better and more creative hairdresser every day! To always challenge myself and push myself to my creative limits.

Have you had a lot of clients with box dye disasters after lockdown?

My clients were all very well behaved, and all my blonde babes had their hair saved by your products! 

Does working in a salon make you want to experiment with your hair a lot?

I am a blonde babe through and through. There’s no tempting me to go to the darker side! 

What is your go-to hair care for Autumn/Winter?

My go-to hair care for this season is undoubtedly the Fanola Nutricare range! That stuff is to die for!

Now it’s time to go and show Claudia some love by following her on her social media platforms! Make sure you check back for our next Fanola artist Q&A.
