Tyler Johnston






Combining technique and adventurous creativity, Tyler Johnston’s work is immediately recognizable. He has been featured in some of the world’s most fêted international glossy magazines and his much talked about haircuts for private clients include the likes of David and Victoria Beckham, Cate Blanchett and Lily Allen.


Beginning as a stylist at Vidal Sassoon in the creative hotbed of 80’s Manchester, Tyler progressed rapidly up the ladder, culminating in a move to London where he became Art Director at Sasoon’s prestigious Knightsbridge salon. After six years in this high-profile position, working on seasonal collections and TV commercials, Tyler left to pursue a freelance path, which has established him as one of the industry’s most sought-after session stylists.

Lesley Jennison






Lesley began her career in 1984 at a renowned London hair academy and spent 18 years travelling the globe working on shows, seminars and advertising. Lesley then joined the fabulous Real salon, where she tends to a high-profile clientele that includes Gwyneth Paltrow and Elle Macpherson.


Her radical vision and flair for color took her from Vidal Sassoon apprenticeship to global recognition and has made her the ‘go to’ name on every celebrity’s lips for unsurpassed color genius. Lesley, who is very well-dressed herself, has also worked on fashion shows for the likes of John Richmond, Raf Simons and Alexander McQueen.

Richard Ashforth






Renowned for his creativity and exceptional eye for detail, Richard Ashforth is widely recognized as one of the UK’s most accomplished stylists. His belief is simply to celebrate the individual through his “beauty first” approach. Starting his career with the illustrious Vidal Sassoon, Richard then went on to establish his own international hairdressing brand, SACO, in 2005, with educational academies and salons positioned across the globe. Defined as ‘success’ in Japanese, SACO also means ‘detail’ – describing Richard’s precision cutting-style perfectly!


Frequently working with some of the greatest names on the International fashion scene, from countless Fashion Week shows to photoshoots alongside Peter Lindbergh, David Bailey and American & British Vogue, Richard has also created his own guerrilla-style hair show – NOISE – an underground event which has travelled the world and always brings a new level of energy and suspense to the fast-paced world of hairdressing.
