“I’ve learnt a lot from our founder, Anthony Barnes-Smith, as well as my mentor and mother, Dawn Lawrence. I plan to honour the legacy of Q Hair and Beauty - over 50 years of independent hair and beauty which isn’t common these days, by promoting above average salaries and work/life balance for our team.
