Emma brings a wealth of experience to novo and is treasured by her extensive client list. As well as being fantastic at hair-up work, Emma is a fully qualified 'Great Lengths' extensions specialist, a highly skilled cutter of both ladies and mems hair, and an excellent colourist.
Elaine has worked with Kevin (and novo) for over 25 years and has an enviable clientele that completely trust her professional skills. Elaine both cut and colours hair and is also a specialist in hair-up and wedding styling.
Emma is just about as qualified in the art of hair colouring as it is possible to be, having completed a specialist colouring degree in L'Oreal (with a specialist qualification from both Wella and Schwarzkopf thrown in for good measure!). Emma mixes expert technical knowledge with artistic flair to give her clients the perfect hair colour experience.
From the beginning, we knew that Nicola had a very special touch with her hairdressing, 12 years later (and as one of the busiest stylists at novo) we can see how right we were! Nicola attracts tremendous loyalty from her clients and is also a 'Great Lengths' hair extensions specialist. Having had extensions herself for five years, she can advise with personal experience.
Megan has a natural flair with hair that attracts a huge and loyal following. Her clients appreciate her in-depth consultations and imaginative approach to finding the 'perfect look’. Megan specialises in Balayage, Ombre and freehand colouring and uses these techniques to personalise her client’s style to great effect.
Lillie joined novo after spending 2 years at two of London's premier salons. Lillie cuts and colours hair and specialises in balayage. Lillie is an accomplished barber and is also a certified Great Lengths hair extensions specialist.
Ros has worked with novo for over 15 years and is popular with both the clients and the team. Ros is on first name terms with most of the salon clients and is very much part of the fabric of the salon.
