Founder & Senior Stylist

As a teenager living in Birmingham she was offered the opportunity to join the Youth Training Scheme (YTS) at her local salon. After two years she moved to Renaissance in the heart of the city where she continued her training under the watchful eyes of Asheefa Rai, who was taught the art of hairstyling in the 80’s by the legendary Vidal Sassoon. She subsequently worked in various salons in and around Birmingham including Richard Wallace in Monkspath Solihull. She met her American husband in Birmingham, and moved to New York to be with him. After six months they decided to move back to England and settled in Oxford.

After 12 years working with a local company, including a spell managing their growing salon business within the city, she decided that becoming independent would provide greater professional opportunities and increased flexibility to explore all aspects of hairstyling, not just the day to day hairdressing.  Her world now includes working for fashion magazines, assembling editorial photoshoots and model portfolios as well as wedding hairstyling.

Over the course of her career Tuc has worked with many professional hair care products including L’anza, L’oreal,  Kerastase, Redken, Wella, Sebastian, Kenra,Tigi, Paul Mitchell and Sassoon to name just a few. Regularly going to shows and seminars has also been an important part of her entire professional working life.  Tuc continues to make this a priority as there is always something new to learn in the world of hairdressing. She has versatile and extensive experience in all aspects of the hairdressing world.
