Olivia Richman

Say hello to our Senior Stylist Olivia Richman who began her hairdressing career as a Saturday girl when she was just 15 years old.  She began her hairdressing apprenticeship with Stephen Young Salon when she was 16 and qualified in 2018. She loves the atmosphere and salon life and hasn’t looked back since.

Which hairstyle or colour do you love creating?  One of my favourite colours to create is balayage. I love the freehand aspect of the colour application, how you can place the colour where you feel is needed. Creating an amazing blend!

What do you love about being a hairdresser?  What I love most about being a hairdresser is getting to know clients, helping them achieve their hair goals and of course the end result and transformation.

Who inspires you to create fabulous hair? My inspiration in life is my mum. I love her work ethic – she has always been very hard working and independent, which has inspired me to put everything into my work. Being able to treat her as a thank you for everything she’s done for me is the icing on the cake!

What is your ultimate ambition?  My ultimate ambition would be to one day own and run my own successful salon.

How would you describe yourself in three words?  Loyal, bubbly, and caring.

Tell us something about yourself that might surprise others.  Something that might surprise people about me would be that I have been a qualified stylist for nearly 3 years! But really! I have sang in the Royal Albert Hall and can play hot cross buns on a trumpet! But I’m still only 20 so I’m sure there will be a lot more surprises to come.
