Tanya Hare

Starting out as a weekend girl at just 15 years old, London born and bred Tanya Hare soon fell in love with the hairdressing industry. Her career quickly progressed, seeing her join the Art Team in her early 20s and working on exciting projects such as London Fashion Week with designers Vin & Omi, the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Awards and various photoshoots. With 25 years of industry experience under her belt, Tanya has trained with professional colour brands L’Oréal , Wella, Redken and Matrix.

Tanya also has a flair for wedding hair, colour correction and restyles. She says: “I love finding out what suits an individual. Finding the right style for someone is paramount, everyone is unique.”

Tanya takes her inspiration by looking in and around London, the diversity of people and the spectrum of Pantone colours they wear. Married with two daughters, Tanya values spending time with her family and her two beloved Basset Hounds.
