Her creativity was further inspired by working alongside other world class hair stylists and influential fashion designers at the fashion shows in London, Paris and Milan.
Creating new looks at the shows and styling hair at fashion shoots for glossy magazines such as Vogue, She, Company and Looks meant always being one step ahead of current trends.
The list of celebrities whose hair Helen has coiffed includes models, Naomi Campbell, Yasmin Le Bon and Laura Bailey and “it girls”,Tamara Beckworth, Sophie Anderton and Donna Air.
After spending ten years living and working in London Helen decided that the time was right to return to Cumbria.
Helen Gee Hairdressing was established in 2008; a very small boutique style salon in White Hart Yard. After 7 successful years, in November 2015 the salon expanded and moved to Market Street, Ulverston.
Helen believes that one of the most important factors of a clients' visit to the salon is the consultation, to ensure that the client receives the hairstyle that is most suitable.
”Communicating and connecting with the person in the chair is so important. We want to establish exactly what the person wants, needs and expects and sometimes that means enquiring further.”
Helen is passionate about giving an unsurpassed standard of service to each client. She is dedicated to striving for flair whilst maintaining a strong sense of integrity, giving genuine honest advice.
Helen offers services in cutting, blow-drying, colouring and styling.
Our philosophy: “Every client is a unique individual. Whilst it is important that a hairstyle is tailored to suit a client’s physical attributes, such as face shape and hair texture, it is equally important that it reflects their personality and lifestyle.”
Under Helen’s tutelage Zara has developed her technical skills and creativity to become a very talented and much valued member of the team, recently acquiring the title of Creative Consultant.
Zara is very aware of what is current in the fashion world and endeavours to display her passion in the way she works; at the same time she remains open-minded and sincere, adapting her work and preferences to best suit the client.
Zara is passionate about always delivering the high standards and commitment to customer satisfaction for which the salon is renowned.
Zara offers services in cutting, styling, blow-drying, colouring, hair up,Style Rapide and bridal hair.
Zara began her career as an apprentice at Nicky Clarke’s Manchester salon and completed her training at Helen Gee Hairdressing around 10 years ago.
