Starting her career at Saks, Joanne Fox started her mobile hair business Hair by Joanne Fox in Hartlepool back in 2004. Having trained in extensions, she realised she had a huge passion for them and when a fellow extensionist introduced her to Remi Cachet three years ago she's never looked back. We caught up with her to ask all things hairy and a few more personal questions.
What’s your favourite application method? My all-time favourite is Flat Bonds and this is my main application method. I love how adaptable bonds are for all hair types; they can be cut down for finer hair; they are fabulous for thickening sides and so flexible if you want to put the hair up.
"The quality is second to none and I pride myself in providing only the absolute best for my clients."
Have you got a dream celebrity client? My dream client would probably be Katy Perry. She's such a hair chameleon that anything goes. I'd love to fit her a full head of bonds and some custom colouring, of course!
Have you got a favourite colour to work with? My favourite colour at the moment is by far T5/55. Root stretches are so popular right now and this ashy blend is perfect. I'm looking forward to using the new root stretch colours too.
Here's my bestie with my favourite T5/55 16" flat bonds. She's got quite fine hair so 100 grammes is enough. I apply half bonds in her sides and perimeter where her hair is finer. I then cut some natural layers and shape around her face before finishing off with my cloud 9 wide straighteners for a nice bouncy curl.
What's your bad hair day fix? A messy bun is my ultimate bad hair day fix, just don't spend too much time on it. The quicker you put it in, the better it looks usually.
Who has influenced you? My parents have always been a big influence on me. They have always been very hard working and loved their jobs. Growing up we were always told if we do something we love and make a living from it, we will be lucky and that's definitely how I feel. Going to work never feels like work, I love it that much.
What are this year's summer hair trends? It's gonna be all beachy waves and plaits - I just love summer hair.
Favourite emoji? I always use 😍😍😍 on my posts
Last concert you went to see? I took my daughter, Lillie, to see Little Mix in Newcastle. She loves them and we had front row seats - it was amazing!
Favourite drink? Daytime would be a nice americano with a drop of milk - I drink way too much coffee. A little later then it has to be rhubarb gin with fever tree tonic its way too nice!
Favourite Instagram feed? I love Not Another Salon, their colour work is unbelievable and I love what they stand for.
Favourite app? My dominoes one. I love pizza and it so easy to order on it!
Dream Holiday destination? My ultimate dream destination has to be the Maldives. It just looks like paradise, we'll definitely go one day.
