to our amazing team
My name is Gemma, and I’ve been with Tikadi since the very beginning which is 14 years now. Working here ticks every box for me , I love the location, the job that I do, the team I work with and Michael is great to work for. I specialise in cut and colour and pride myself in offering outstanding customer service. Tikadi has been awarded excellent customer service at the Essex business awards to which the team are extremely proud of. I used to work alongside Michael in Loughton years ago I then moved to London for a period of time at Harrods Urban Retreat before returning locally to join tikadi. My hair care tip would be to accept what you have and make the most of it by trusting the professional advice of your stylist.
Hi I’m Jina and I have been at Tikadi for 12 years now. I specialise in colour , I love the instant transformation , it really gets my mind going. Team Tikadi are brilliant to work with and I’m proud to be part of this award-winning team. Before hairdressing I studied art, it’s where I get my creativity from, which I express in my colour techniques. What I love most about my job is the banter with my clients , I learn new things every day and often not related to hair at all….. My hair care tip would be to make sure you use good products such Olaplex , healthy hair = amazing hair.
Hi, I’m Hannah and I have been at Tikadi since the day we opened back in March 2007. I specialise in all aspects of hairdressing, but I particularly enjoy short cuts and colour. I particularly enjoy styling brides for their very special day. I chose to follow my career in hairdressing as I just love to make people feel fabulous, there’s no feeling like it. I won the Schwarzkopf young artistic team award in 2011 and the Schwarzkopf best gent at the creative team awards in 2012, it was amazing to be part of this team ! My best hair care tip is ‘Olaplex, protecting and strengthening your hair in a way, no other product can do, it really is the way forward.
My name is Maria and I have been with Tikadi for over 12 years. My clients are amazing, and we have forged great relationships during this time. I am a good all-rounder as I have a variety of clients requiring many varied techniques, I love working here as the team get along so well, we have been working together closely for years. For me, hairdressing was the only career I wanted to do, I simply love it when a client leaves the salon feeling great and confident because of the work we do. My must have product is Moroccan oil , as it's for all hair types and works equally well for conditioning and styling on everyone.
My name is Tracy , I have been at Tikadi since the summer of 2010. I am the lady that specialises in running the front desk and look forward to welcoming you all with a warm smile. It’s really lovely working in such a beautiful village, the team are brilliant and include me in everything they do. I love my position as front of house, I get to meet new clients and welcome back our regulars, it's great. I take pride in the smooth running of the salon and making sure schedules are in place. My hair care tip is to keep your regular appointments with Tikadi and keep those split ends at bay.
Hi, I’m Chloe and I have been here now for over 13 years. I specialise in styling, hair ups and blow drying but thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my work. I love working here and the team I work with , in-fact two of the team members were my bridesmaids and my clients are all incredible to. I chose hair dressing as a career as it literally is something different every day, each client is individual, and every day provides something interesting in a different way. My hair care tip is to always use a heat protector spray such as Wella’s style & protect.
My name is Caitlin and I could not imagine working anywhere else. Working for Tikadi is great as the staff and clients form one big family, it's always a fabulous atmosphere. I specialise in blow dries, the big bouncy ones that Essex is famous for ready for that special night. I’ve been very fortunate, like the rest of the team to have been provided outstanding training, both in house and at Alan D Hairdressing collage based in London. My favourite product is Moroccan oil strong hair spray, it smells amazing!
Georgia and I have been at Tikadi since leaving school in 2014, I completed my apprenticeship here at Tikadi. I am a good all-rounder, but I particularly enjoy colour and blow drying. I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else as the team are incredible, we all help each other when we need to and the clientele here are amazing, I chose hairdressing as a career as I’ve always had an interest in hair and love the creativity involved and seeing the finished result is always rewarding My hair care tip is to make sure you treat your hair regularly with good products such as the wella invigo range, which is fantastic.
I’ve been with tikadi now for over 6 years and have loved every minute of it. It’s a great place to work, our clients are lovely and the salon is always stunning. My forte is cutting particularly short cuts and curls are all the trend which is great as I love perming to.
Feel free to make an appointment for your free consultation and I’ll be happy to greet you with a welcoming smile.
