The owner of the salon with a wealth of experience of 27 years hairdressing. She started her career in Surrey and was lucky enough to be taught by her employer, who was an inspiration to her. After moving to Devon over 12 years ago, Kathy ventured into the opening of her own salon in 2011 and hasn't looked back since. She is very proud of the salon and the staff.
Mike has been in the industry for nearly 40 years (where does time go!) and has experienced most apects but prefers salon life over editorial work as it's more fun! He particularly loves short cuts, graduated bobs, gents and training the stylists of the future. When not in the salon he is a dab hand in the kitchen and loves cycling, art and film.
Grew up in Northampton, and wanted to be a hair stylist after watching a hairdresser friend being creative with colour. Ange still loves colouring, especially when she's creating vibrant colours for her guests. Along with colour, she also likes creating hair up styles and helping the apprentices with advice and technique.
Ellie joined us in 2016, previously working as a senior hair stylist in Barnstaple for a number of years. Her talent and passion has been recognised as she has recently been promoted to Director! Ellie started working in a salon at age 15 after always accompanying her mum when she had her hair done, she was completely fascinated and knew exactly what she wanted to do in life! She enjoys cutting and colouring, especially short hair. Ellie says she really enjoys meeting new people and catching up with her clients!
Has been with Nirvana since the very beginning and is always positive influence on us all. Rosie is from Stoke on Trent originally but has lived in Devon since she was a child. Having worked in salons since she was 14, it was a natural progression to follow on to be the confident stylist that she is. Rosie loves cutting and being creative with an individual look, and she specialises in hair up and bridal styling.
