1) Please tell us who you are and what you do for those not familiar with you?
Hi my name is Karen and i am from Wirral. I am a 25year old hair stylist with 7 years experience of styling. I am a Session Stylist for Photography shoots, Fashion events, Music video and T.V.
2) How can someone from the other side of the world contact you or even learn more about you?
I can be contacted through facebook or via my webpage where there is my work history and bio.
3)There are so many hair stylists what makes you different from the rest?
I have an emmence amount of passion regarding my work and each style i create along with attention to detail. My scope is not limited, i am versitile and unique in bringing my own individual flare of ideas. I believe no idea is wasted.
4)What makes you a good hair stylist?
I listen to my clients requests and needs, i have great customer service skills and a high amount of patience, haha, you definitely need to have patience! And my own creations when given free range are out of the box which i think is a great quality to have as a hair stylist. I enjoy the preperation and planning, i admit i am an organised girl...mood boards and lists of what i need to do.haha
She is simply the best
5) What are a few things women do with their hair that makes you mad,name 4 things?
Not having their hair cut regularly because they are growing it. Hair grows unevenly so eventually it will need a good chop which brings you back to square one!
Women that ask you to blowdry their hair then tie it up in a bobble straight away before they leave, its a waste of a great blowdry if you ask me.
Women who cut their childrens hair then ask you to fix it.
Women who constantly touch their hair when you in the middle of working on it, they might get their fingers chopped off!
6) Who are your 4 best friends you would ride and die for?
My sister Hayley, she is my ultimate best friend and a second mum to me.
My friend Kelly,she is the strongest person i know and shes totally nuts and full of energy i didnt know anyone could have.
My friend Claire, she is so thoughtful and listens to anything i have to get off my chest.
My friend Nicky, Shes also an amazing hair stylist and is there when i need her without fail.
My cousin Becky, shes the funniest person i know, such dry humour and quick off the mark shes ace!
I realise i have 5 there but hey you need to break the rules sometimes.

7)If you had the chance to style 3 people of your choice who would it be and why?
ooo this is a hard one, id have to say The Rock! he'd have to grow it slightly but its a chance to get my hands on him!
Pink, shes my idol and would love to style her hair for her tours and music videos.
Rhonda Byrne, writer of The Secret. Purely so i can thank her for releasing such powerful material.
8)Do you think you are a true representation of a todays woman?
I like to think im an independant woman whose driven and knows what she wants. I work hard which we all do and im not afraid to say what i want in life.
9)If you were given 2 tickets to fly anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
I am one of those people that want to try anything once and go everywhere once so i cant possibly choose. The world is far too big.
10)What do you think of men who teaches women to walk?
11)If you were to stay at home on valentines with your lover what would you cook and wear?
Id just be happy not to be alone on valentines haha. It would depend on the personality of my lover but i guarentee id put full effort in.
12)What is more sexy choose the following men in.....(1) boxers....(2) briefs.....(3) thongs?
Haha id have to say theres nothing sexier out of the shower wearing a towel, but if i have to choose id say boxers for me its more manly.
13)If we were a fly on your bedroom wall what would we be shocked to see?
The amount of kirbygrips i leave around the place, i tend to take them out of my hair and forget where ive put them,my floor is covered.
14)What are a few things people say about you that is not true that you would love to address?
People who dont know me can somethimes thing im extremely confident due to my hair colour and style, but this is not always the case. I have insecurities like every normal person does.

15)We know you are a hair stylist for an upcoming shoot on July 1st with the Catwalk Professor who is a tv personalityto ITV2 and MTV what can we expect from you as the stylist to his hair?
Basically something that reflects his huge personality, its going to be a style to remember!
16)What advice would you give to anyone wanting to be a hairdresser?
I would say hang in there and stick with it through your training, its not the most exciting time at first but it gets a whole lot better and rewarding. Knowing you can change a persons style and regain someones confidence through wearing a new look youve created is the best feeling.
17)What are a few things that men do that make you mad?
Im guessing this isnt hair related then.....men are unpredictable thats all ill say.
18)What attracts you to someone?
Personality and warmth within a person. I am a big believer of the law of attraction and i can recognise others that think the same way i do and who are positive people to be around.
19)Can you master any hair type?
Yes i can handle any hair type however if somone asks me to create a certain style who has the opposite hair type to whats required for the look then thats a challenge an i will then advise an alternative.

20)How can we see a hairstyle and know it was you that created it?
Id like to think that was possible and maybe people who know me can but there are so many talented hair stylists amongst us i would be honoured if recognised.
21)What do you think of the fashion police news blog?
I think its just what we need, Mr Fierce is extremely talented and its great to share his knowlege and insight.
22)If you were not a hair stylist what would you be doing?
I cant imagine me not being a stylist however I have an interest for fitness so a personal trainer would be an option.
23)What do you enjoy doing when your not working?
I dont have much time to myself lately but when i do i like to catch up with my friends which normally involves me playing around with their hair and trying new styles. I cant seem to switch off if im not physically hair styling im then researching new ideas for future work, i love it what can i say.
24)What inspires you to keep doing what you do?
Like i mentioned before, the way you can transform someones personalty by bringing their confidence back through a hair style youve created is a powerful thing. As to my avant guard side of hairdressing i just love to stand back and see the unique look thats all my doing. I feel proud when i get such great feedback of my work it motivates me.
25)Any last words for our many blogg readers?
Thank for having me and for throwing a few odd questions at me,haha. Im looking forward to our shoot on July 1st let the fun begin :-) xxxx
