Meet the team: five minutes with…
We’re chatting with another of our London blow dry bar team members this month, introducing our fabulous stylist Marta! We take five minutes out at our blow dry bar in London to ask Marta a few questions;
Hi Marta, why did you want to work in the hair industry?
I always had an interest in hair and a natural grasp for it. I picked up blow dry styling techniques quickly and started when I was fairly young so have had a lot of practice and have learnt loads along the way.
What do you enjoy about working at aer?
There is a nice balance in the salon between clients and staff, and there’s always someone to chat to! With it being a blow dry bar Kensington store there’s a great buzz in the area with something new always going on. For instance from this Friday we have a brilliant pop up event with Adeela Salehjee for cashmere clothing running until Sunday and our up styles for hair that we offer incorporating fresh flowers are so much fun to create. There’s always something different and exciting happening!
Would you share one of your go-to styling tips with us?
Instead of your standard wash and blow dry, plait your hair whilst still damp and leave overnight or until the hair dries. When you wake up in the morning let it loose and you will have gorgeous texture and body to your hair. This is a great technique to use before a fashion show or shoot to add more structure to the hair.
What other beauty treatments are popular at aer?
We offer a range of beauty services; eyebrow tinting and threading are popular and we have newly introduced a lash bar at our London blow dry bar which is exciting. It’s great because clients can book in for eyelash tinting or another of our treatments and add onto that a lash extension treatment too!
Who would be your dream client?
I don’t really have one! Styling everyday clients’ hair whether that be a wash and blow dry or upstyles for hair is always my preference as you meet so many interesting people especially at our blow dry Kensington store.
Some quick fire questions to finish off;
Perfect holiday destination?
Thailand, the chilled vibes there would be everything!
Last film you watched?
A comedy- Bad Moms with Mila Kunis and Kristen Bell.
Favourite time of the year?
I love Autumn and Halloween is great fun, I love dressing up with the kids!
Thank you Marta for taking the time out at our busy blow dry bar in London and we’re excited to share more interviews with you all soon. Have a lovely week!
