Getting away from work and getting away from home is neither here nor there as I am flat out busy in both.
How long have you been hairdressing?
Including my Training, I’ve been Hairdressing 20 Years!! Gee Whizzers that’s a long time! Time Fly’s by when your having fun
What is your favourite product on the retail shelf and why?
That’s really hard as there are so many, probably too many to whittle it down to just one!
If you were a dog, what breed would you be and why?
I’d be a Spaniel x Labrador x Collie because I get as excited as a Spaniel, as greedy as a Labrador… with food (love my food) and at times I am intelligent like a Collie, of course, I am also loveable.
What is the absolute worst movie you have ever seen?
I’ve not actually ever seen a bad Movie as yet, which is pretty good I think, but I have to admit that Disney’s Cars always sends me to sleep.
If you went to disney world, which character would you eat breakfast with and why?
I would have to pick Buzz and Woody to eat breakfast with, sorry I can’t just pick the one. Toy Story is one of my favourite film’s (favourite children’s films obvs).
Whats your favourite meal?
It has to be a Spag Bol, homemade by myself of course, I love cooking.
What is your biggest achievement in life so far?
Qualifying as a Hairdresser at Level 3 all those years ago, and still loving every minute of it. Oh, and of course having three beautiful children, Liam, Amelia and Gabriella. Sadly Gabriella was taken too soon, but seeing my other two grow up is a real joy…and pain…in the neck.
Describe your perfect date?
Being driven there, having everything bought for me, being driven back, and that he was dressed up (that he had made the effort) now that would be perfect.
Which 3 celebrities would you Snog, Marry and avoid?
Snog… Tom Hardy, Marry…Tom Hardy and Avoid…Charlotte Riley as I’m guessing she wouldn’t be best pleased with me.
What was the first record you ever bought?
Record!! Record!! How old do you think I am?? Oh okay, it was Kylie Minogue ‘I Should be so Lucky’ from Woolworths. Showing my age again now.
