Knowl­edge that is a cut above

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Business - By JU­LIAN WRIGHT

DE­SPITE work­ing on in­ter­na­tional fash­ion shows in the UK, hair­dresser Pamela Flem­ming is still ex­pand­ing on her knowl­edge at a Su­bi­aco sa­lon.

The 34-year-old Mt Hawthorn res­i­dent grew up in Northamp­ton­shire, 117kms north of London, and was in­spired by her fam­ily to pur­sue a ca­reer in hair­dress­ing.

“I was 16 when I started hair­dress­ing; I have al­ways loved do­ing hair from an early age,” she said. “My mum and aunts got me lov­ing hair and fash­ion; my fam­ily has al­ways done each other's hair though none of them are pro­fes­sional hair­dressers.”

Ms Flem­ming said a ca­reer high­light so far in­cluded demon­strat­ing on stage at the largest hair ex­hi­bi­tion in the North­ern Hemi­sphere, Sa­lon In­ter­na­tional.

“I have also helped the hair on mod­els for Clothes Show Live, which is an an­nual fash­ion trend ex­hi­bi­tion; the ex­hi­bi­tion was born from a very pop­u­lar Bri­tish TV show,” she said.

“I was also lucky to work on a show for the South African tourist board, which was fun as the mod­els were show­cas­ing £3m worth of di­a­monds and they looked amaz­ing.”

She fell in love with Aus­tralia dur­ing her trav­els here and de­cided to set­tle in Perth

Now work­ing at Su­bi­aco sa­lon Toni&Guy, Ms Flem­ming said she was still learn­ing.

“Work­ing there has given me a lot of learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, which has helped me to grow as a stylist,” she said. “I am also about to do a mov­ing up pre­sen­ta­tion to art di­rec­tor, which is the high­est level of stylist within the group.”
