Both Amanda and Lynsey have worked in the corporate world of hair, working with some of the leading hair salons and hair stylists in the UK. Amanda remains a Redken Colour Director and trains other stylists on a frequent basis. They both have a detailed history spanning their entire adult careers and they remain truly passionate about hair.
I’ve been a hair stylist for a long time now since age 8 it’s all I ever wanted to be! 23 yrs on having to write this now I’m reminded that ‘its been colourful and hard work but with so many wonderful opportunities along the way!’ Classically trained from 15 I learned it all. ‘I’m so glad I did!’ Thanks, mum you were right!!!
It has always given me an edge to give all my clients exactly what they want from cutting to colouring, setting and perming to bridal and top fashion work. As you can also see I have crazy curly hair!! This too gave me a love of solving the issues many of my clients have with their own curls!
Working in busy high-end salons has filled my world with joy, in 2004 I found a hair related passion that would literally rock my world, I was chosen to become one of only a handful of U.K. Redken Artists. In short I educate specializing in color but also keeps me up to date with all latest trends and has for filled a love of fashion show work and allowed me to meet amazing hairdressers from all over the world, It has given me the opportunity to learn and perfected many skills, help others to perfect there’s and now I’m so pleased to say it has allowed us at The Hair and Lounge to be backed by one of the world’s leading professional only color and hair care ranges.
We are passionate about you and what we do and I very much look forward to you joining us in our very special place to see how we can look after you and your hair.Amanda Holloway
I started hairdressing when I was 17 and instantly fell in love with the trade the design and creativity and the ability to make people smile everyday was my drive, I was classically trained in a traditional old school hairdressers where I also trained to be a barber, I’ve worked in a couple of barber shops and loved it but I missed the creativity and the colouring of ladies hair, I moved to the Duke street-based salon in 2003 who used Redken colour and have not wanted to use another brand since.
I’ve attended numerous courses with Redken and have always learned so much keeping me driven and up to date. After 15 yrs now working in Brighton, a town with a wide, vast variety of individuals it has opened my skills to a wider more varied client and I can’t get enough. My individual mind, creativity and a passion for fashion gives me a drive in my work to give my clients the edge and their own true identity.
With the opening of The Hair and Lounge I now have my own space where I am free to be as creative as I want, fill my days with meeting new people doing the job I love in a space that’s a home from home, a place to come chillLynsey
