More About Me
Thank you for taking the time to find out a bit more about me and my journey that resulted in me creating my small independent business Hair by Duboux.
So from to past to present may be slightly unconventional in the sense that I am not a hairdresser.
I started my career as a wig maker or knotter of facial Postiche for the entertainment industry at the very prestigious Sarah Weatherburn & Co Ltd at just seventeen.
For those of you thinking what the hell (trust me you're not alone) facial Postiche (or hair) can be for the everyday person however in the entertainment industry you'd be surprised at the percentage of hand made to home grown.
My time at Sarah's was priceless and it is really down to her and the wonderful team of knotters who taught me the fundamentals of wigs, hairpieces, extensions and the general care and precision that is required to be a 'wiggie' within the world of film, television and theatre.
I followed my passion of making wigs into the arts where I learnt how to maintain and apply them on many West End, National and International theatre productions including working for Disney both in the parks and across their fleet of cruise ships, Live Televisions and Celebrity styling for The Olivier and BAFTA Awards. With a varied career thats taken me around the world I picked up that wonderful travel bug!
Aside from traveling the world, amongst the hectic life of theatre I gained the tools and the experience that would equip me in providing a professional and exceptional service.
I made a slow and steady transition into the Wedding Industry back in 2012, having reached the age where majority of my friends had started tying the knot.
I loved hearing about their wedding plans, seeing the colour palettes, the flowers (I'm a huge lover of plants & flowers) wedding party outfits you name it I felt thoroughly engrossed.
This love for all the details has overflowed from friends weddings into my clients. I love the journey and formation of friendships when working with you to create your hairstyle of dreams.
I am always honoured when I am asked to be a part of your special day, the difference with myself, being a small independent business, is that I genuinely do a little happy dance with every booking
I am privileged to be able to say I love what I do and the term work as such doesn't really apply because of that passion and drive.
I like to keep up-to-date with catwalk, high street and wedding fashion trends and use these to my advantage, combining my memberships with Kristina Gasperas Academy, The Vibe Education, Hair by Hannah Taylor and education with Kevin fortune to bring you my A-Game but also work closely with wedding industry suppliers to make your planning experience as smooth and stress free as possible.
I am affiliated and work closely with local hairstylists Carly Williams, Kasia Fortuna and Botias Hair and makeup within their assisting communities, which in turn strengthens the community of makeup and hairstylists working within the wedding industry.
My goal is to make you and your wedding party not just look breathtaking but to feel truly special, in creating hair styles that look sensational yet reflect you and your individuality.
I would love the opportunity to be a part of your special day, to work my tail comb magic creating exquisite hair to make you feel fabulous. Your wedding is a day that you will cherish for the rest of your life…I cant wait to hear from you!
