‘My best flight was by pri­vate jet to see Cognac be­ing made’

Belfast Telegraph - - LIFE -

Suzan Man­ning (44) is cre­ative di­rec­tor of Zuni Hair­dress­ing in Belfast. She lives in the city with her part­ner Peter. She says:

Pro­fes­sion­ally speak­ing I would like to sit be­side Sam McKnight — he’s the top celebrity ses­sion stylist. He does most of the cov­ers for Vogue and has just launched his own range of prod­ucts. I have met him, as I was trained by him to work on a video shoot, but I would love more time with him.

Per­son­ally speak­ing I’m a girls’ girl, so I love the idea of be­ing stuck on a plane in be­tween Cameron Diaz and San­dra Bul­lock.

Any­one who has been in a rom­com, re­ally.

I do travel a lot. I go back and forth to London, par­tic­u­larly for London Fash­ion Week when I work on the Top­shop shows spon­sored by L’Oreal.

I’ve been to LA to do Vi­dal Sas­soon cour­ses and I’ve trav­elled the world with Den­man.

I try to get a bal­ance of work and re­lax­ation, so I try and squeeze in a girls’ trip to Ibiza once or twice a year.

The more you travel the bet- ter you get at it, so I re­cently have been try­ing to per­fect the cap­sule wardrobe.

The se­cret is bring­ing the right shoes — if you have a few good, stylish pairs which go with ev­ery­thing and you can walk around London and New York in them, then you’re fine.

Trav­el­ling light is im­por­tant, as when I travel for work I have mas­sive suit­cases of kit with me — ba­si­cally I bring a mo­bile sa­lon.

The best flight I have ever been on was when a friend won a trip on the Hen­nessey Louis Vuit­ton pri­vate jet.

We went to Cognac to see how Hen­nessey was made — I have to say we were try­ing to fig­ure out how we could man­age to do it again as soon as we came back.

Touch wood, I’ve never had any dis­as­ters on a plane. I’m not a ner­vous flier but I think it’s be­cause I haven’t had any bad ex­pe­ri­ences. In say­ing that, flights to Ibiza can be a bit rough. Peo­ple are par­ty­ing away and ham­mered be­fore they even get on the plane.”

I’d love to be stuck on a plane be­tween Cameron Diaz and San­dra Bul­lock
