Fliss - Stylist

Hi my name is Felicity, Fliss for short!
I started hairdressing 18 years ago as a Saturday girl and fell in love with the whole salon experience. This then led me to do my 2 years of level 2 NHF training at Colchester institute. Whilst doing my training I worked in salon too, I feel this really improved my people skills and understanding of the hairdressing language.
After passing my training and gaining some years of experience I then moved on to Medusa Hairdressing where I have now been for the last 10 years! Whilst being at the salon I have passed my level 3 NHF training which includes Hair extensions Hair up and advance perming skills also been on advance cutting courses and keep up to date with all new product knowledge.
I love all aspects of my job whether it be cutting, colouring, styling or perming. What I enjoy most about being a hairdresser is sharing peoples special days with them, making them feel like the most important person in the room weddings, proms, baby showers any event that is special to them. My heart is also with the older generation, I love spending time with them even if it’s for a quick blow dry or they are in for whole morning having a perm, I love taking time to listen to them.


Becky - Stylist

I’m Becky, I am 21 years old and a qualified level 3 hair stylist. I’ve been working at Medusa’s for nearly 6 years now and it’s also where I began my career into being a hairdresser. I’ve always been really interested in colouring and more so now as there are so many more creative colours out there to do, also my other favourite thing to do is styling hair, to see my clients leave happy is the best result for me. Clients is another favourite thing of mine within the job because I’ve met so many great people and also welcoming new ones into the salon.
