The Team

Salon Director

Jack Palmer

  • Ladies Cut & Blow Dry £65
  • Gents Cut & Finish £41
  • Blow Dry £41
About Me:

Jack has always loved the opportunity to give versatile haircuts that can be worn in a number of different ways. He started off his hairdressing career training with Vidal Sassoon, which created a strong foundation and passion for cutting hair. After getting a few valuable years of salon experience under his belt he moved to the freer environment of Soho, on a freelance basis. He really enjoyed the aspect of a more versatile and quirky clientele. On his cutting journey he reunited with an old Sassoon colleague and started his OPEN adventure on a part time basis. The ethos and energy of the team really grabbed Jack and he knew this was where his future lay. Now, 6 years on Jack is the director of the Harpenden salon and relishes the opportunities and hurdles along the way. Watching the team develop and grow is his true passion, he loves seeing that passed onto our loyal and fantastic following. As Jack always says “without them, none of this would be possible.”.

Head Apprentice

Katie

About Me:

I've been with the company for 3 years now, knowing even when I started as a receptionist that OPEN was a place like no other. Intending on finishing my art&design course and specialising in photography at university, I was instead adopted by the hair world; sophisticated and creative in it's tangles. I'm now loving learning with the best, practising cutting and colouring to world-class standards. Surrounded by some of the most personable, not to mention talented and inspiring people I have met, I'm now looking forward to soon becoming qualified and building my own beautiful portfolio of unique clients!

Apprentice

Cece

About Me:

Cece's bubbly personality and beaming grin fit right in at OPEN Harpenden. Beginning her hair career elsewhere, she decided the salon wasn't for her but had heard from some clients about the amazing work and lovely team at OPEN. Enjoying the social side of hair, Cece has most enjoyed meeting so many new and inspiring people, as well as the excitement of such a varied clientele. Our different vibe and warm atmosphere means that this young learner can't wait to watch herself and the company grow together.
