Meet the Team

Ella

Managing Director

With 20 years experience in the industry, it has long been a dream of mine to create my own workshop.

Originally trained in London by the award winning Toni & Guy, Artistic Team, my expertise in cutting, colouring and Hair up have lead me to win various competitions and be involved in some amazing events. Highlights for me have been consulting on Dyson’s Supersonic Hairdryer and winning Bristol Hairdresser of the year.

I love what I do, from laughing with clients day to day, through to editorial shoots, shows and teaching. Hairdressing is an art form and I take inspiration from all around me… Whether it’s understanding what will suit someone’s colouring and face shape, or creating a winning image, I am passionate about styling and people. This has translated into a very busy clientele and a hand picked team I am truly proud of.

I am now focussing on the business’ media development, training our next generation of Atelier Stylists- as well as setting up an online store! I live between Clifton and the North Coast of Cornwall where my partner & I have undertaken another (!) renovation project. An old barn here will soon become our second studio in the SW…. I simply love the buzz of the city having grown up in Notting Hill, but in my downtime now- it’s surfing, gardening, and long walks in our stunning surroundings that nurture my soul and inspire my creativity.

I strongly believe that a positive experience can be uplifting and hope that at Atelier we will deliver the service that guests deserve. I’m hugely excited about the future of our business. We hope you will love what Atelier has to offer, and both myself and the team, look forward to welcoming you here for many years to come.

Laura

Creative Director

I moved to the uk in 2012 from Paris, where I grew up and trained as a hairdresser.

I have always been attracted to all kinds of art and find in the craft of hairdressing a way to express myself.

With over 12 years experience, I specialise in Balayage techniques and enjoy creating unique looks which are easy to maintain. My work is meticulous and clear and I will offer you honest advise based on your personal style.

Chris

Creative Director

During my 20+ Hairdressing career, I have been fortunate enough to work in some leading UK hair salons, and on exciting projects within the Fashion, Film & Music Industry.

I have developed my skills across truly inspirational events, with iconic artists and designers; from Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris working with the likes of Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga, to music videos with Kylie Minogue, Jamiroquai and Primal Scream, to name a few.

After living the London scene and a thrilling stint travelling the world for shows, I am excited to be re-locating to Bristol, collaborating with Ella and her fantastic team of Artists at Atelier.

Annabelle

Freelance MUA

I’m a freelance makeup artist and hair stylist with 12 years experience working in the UK and abroad. I love creating opulent, elegant looks and empowering women to become their best, most confident selves.

After studying at the London College of Fashion, I spent time travelling across Australia and New Zealand where I started working for MAC Cosmetics; a company who’s ethos I feel deeply connected to. I have since moved home to England, started my own business and spent a decade perfecting my skills!

Whatever your style, we’ll work together to create an effortlessly gorgeous look that feels like you but on a really good day.

Henry

Artistic Director

Hi I’m Henry, I have worked in the industry since 2005 for some of the leading Haircare brands.

Although accomplished in all aspects of Hairdressing, I have a real passion for colouring. I enjoy new challenges and find helping people incredibly rewarding.

I have worked alongside Ella from day one, and am really proud of the talented, professional team we have built at Atelier. The atmosphere here is creative and fun, which makes it a wonderful place to work, and even better to be a guest.

I have loved Fashion from a young age and think people should celebrate their individuality. Outside the salon, I love nothing more than walking my two beautiful Bulldogs in the great outdoors. I am an avid reader, online skincare expert and love cooking for friends and family.

If you book an appointment with me, you are guaranteed an immaculate set of highlights, a wow worthy blow dry and always entertainment!

Jules

Artistic Director

Hi, I’m Jules, a classically trained Stylist with a love for precision cutting, perming, big bouncy blow dries and Californian highlights.

I have worked in this fabulous industry for 36 years and I still absolutely love what I do. Over the years, I have travelled the world with my scissors, learning different techniques from numerous cultures and having many adventures. 

I’m a good listener who loves a chat, and cannot wait to work some hair magic, alongside a great team. 

Lindsey

Artistic Director

I’ve come to the UK from San Francisco and I’m excited to bring my creativity to Bristol.

I’ve been a hairstylist since 2014, training with Bumble and Bumble in New York and California. I feel inspired by carefree, textural and effortless looking hair and I love to create seamless balayaged looks.

I am trained in both cutting and colouring and feel passionate about listening to my clients and working with them to produce a look which works for their personality and lifestyle, all whilst having fun!

Cody

Senior Stylist

Hi, I’m Cody, one of Ateliers homegrown stylists.

I am so happy to be working at Atelier. After watching the team throughout my training I am so happy to finally be building my own clientele! Working alongside such talented people I take a lot of pride in my work, and ensure you leave happy with your hair.

Lucy

Apprentice

Hi, I’m Lucy. I’m an Apprentice here at Atelier.

I started working here whilst studying for my GCSEs on a Saturday and Wednesday night. I quickly fell in love with the industry, atmosphere in the salon, my inspiring colleagues and lovely clients. This job has enhanced my passion for hairdressing and driven me to want to succeed in an apprenticeship. I have always enjoyed hair styling and recently started creating video tutorials online.

I’m friendly, approachable and love a good chat, so if you see me around the salon, I’m happy to help in anyway to ensure enjoyment and relaxation during your time at Atelier.

Gabriella

Apprentice

Hi I’m Gabriella, an apprentice @ Atelier.

I’ve always loved dabbling with hair- at school I was regularly told off with “this is not a hair salon!”  Luckily now I can spend my days supporting the senior team in delivering great service and learning everyday, in our beautiful workshop.

I can’t wait to become a qualified Hair Stylist, but couldn’t succeed without all my colleagues helping me along the way. We have an amazing atmosphere in the salon with lovely clients and a fun team I’m proud to be part of.

Our hair and beauty Experts are passionate about bringing your ideas and style to life.
