Our Story

I never thought I’d run my own business at 20 , but the more I went for interviews at salons the more I realised I wanted to just take care of brides, I wanted to travel to them and take the stress out of such a special day !

So Plaits and Pin Curls was launched, and I’ve been so grateful for all the support and love shown towards a under female 30 business – I’ve since been ‘women in business awards’ finalist, 3x winner of the national HMUAwards and an international finials at HJ bridal hairdresser of the year award – I’ve had such fun, and its wonderful to see my hard work paying off.
