Stylist/ Colourist

Nathan Godfrey

About Me:

Nathan has been working in the industry for 12 years. As a young stylist he wanted to cover all aspects of the hairdressing world. He started with cutting, colouring and barbering (not being greedy!) before working his way up to senior creative stylist. Not only can Nathan give his clients perfect pastels and a blended balayage, he can also turn his hand to a sick fade. From creating new looks to dressing subtle styles, he loves it all!
