25 years ago when I was a teenager my hair was always long, and I found that hairdressers I went too could never style and cut how I wanted.
I was confident and with my natural talent I knew that if I trained as a hairdresser I would listen to what my customers wanted and would work hard to achieve the kind of service that was missing.
So in 1991 I started as a Saturday assistant in barber shop and studied Barbering at college during the week. Within a short space of time I had customers waiting for me to return on the Saturday to style their hair from trendy mens cuts to ladies bobs.
Since I opened Ankara Hair Salon in Birmingham with my partner Clare in early 2006 I have never stopped learning, having trained in the art of the traditional Turkish wet shave and with the renowned Wella and Toni & Guy academies.
My passion and motivation has inspired my fantastic team to further their training and under my guidance a new generation of up and coming stylists are chosen to attend courses.
