THE OWNER BENJAMIN STYLIST
After completing a BA Honours Degree in Creative Performance. Benjamins creative energy, natural talent, passion and attention to detail, won him an apprenticeship at the Ten Atelier Boutique, located in the prestigious Savoy Hotel in London’s iconic West End. During that apprenticeship, Benjamin was trained by some exceptionally talented mentors. Benjamin remained at the Ten Atelier after qualifying as a hair stylist until 2016, working the floor in a busy leading West End salon.
“Working in the West End was an amazing experience, and it was a privileged to work in such an elite boutique, but I found that working in such a busy environment, didn’t always allow me to give my clients the time I felt they deserved.”
Benjamin then swapped the West End, in favour of running a small salon in Essex, where he successfully built up a large independent clientele.
Always learning, Benjamin then finished First Class in City & Guilds in Barbering Training, in London’s Covent Garden. With this experience Benjamin has been exploring the entire industry, working with world renowned photographers, as a freelancer hairstylist and make-up artist, and so has created a distinguished portfolio. All while running a busy Essex salon.
Since then, Benjamin has moved to wales, and opened his very own salon, in the heart of Swansea. The Colour Lounge. A pink palace of luxury offering hair and beauty, hair styling, colour, dressing, make up, brows and nails.
“When clients come to my salon, they are going on a journey. Being in a more intimate salon, I am able to spend more time with them, which allows me to really understand their vision or style. We can then continue this journey together, and I get a real sense of fulfilment from this. I want my clients to feel amazing when they leave, not only because of their newly styled hair, makeup or nails, but also because they feel understood, valued and have enjoyed their experience with me”
