Hi, I’m Dai. I'm 33 and co-founder of the renowned VADAtelier hair salon. As a lad all I wanted to be was a guitarist in a rock band.
What 12 year old boy doesn’t? Right? So I spent most of my days playing guitar and sitting on the beach dreaming.
Since then I guess I've tried to pack quite a lot in. Growing up in a small town I couldn’t wait to get out and see the world. I left home at 18 to study exploration geology and civil engineering at university. Since then I've dedicated my time to travelling, exploring and learning all I can about everything I can.
A chance meeting at 22 completely changed my direction and led me on a path that ultimately changed my life and resulted in me living in a hut in Estonia and eventually to training as a hairdresser at the world-renowned Vidal Sassoon training school. I worked at Sassoon's for four years before spending time in Canada and the U.S. and finally returning to the UK to open VADAtelier with long-time friend and co-founder Trystan Lewis.
I love what I do. I love the instantaneous result and the chance to brighten someone's day. I am very excited to have been asked to join the Women Scorned Team. Most people in life have at some point had their heart broken. I have. Very recently in fact. In my work I often find myself listening to people's most personal feelings of happiness but also sadness. So the chance of sharing some of the tricks I've learned over the last ten years in hairdressing to help women feel good again is something way too good to miss.
