Mel Perrin

Hi I'm Mel, I trained as a hairdresser when I left school, started my apprenticeship level 2 and followed on to my level 3. I decided to train in barbering once I was fully qualified in hairdressing as I enjoy learning new skills, I enjoy barbering just as much as hairdressing. I've worked for Francesco for almost 7 years now and enjoy every moment. I have recently returned to work from maternity leave after the birth of my first child, she keeps me on my toes and I enjoy being a mother. I specialise in restyles but I also enjoy colouring and love making the clients feel great about their hair. I really enjoy giving clients new and fresh looks.
