Award-winning salon Hazel & Haydn has announced that James Earnshaw is the latest addition to its team in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.

Dale Hollinshead, owner of Hazel & Haydn, commented:  “We are so excited to welcome James to our team. He is a great personality and such a talent. He will be a great mentor for the team, and we are looking forward to an exciting future with him at Hazel & Haydn.”

James is a fresh dynamic individual with huge passion and dedication to the hairdressing industry. A former member of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing, F.A.M.E. Team and current Midlands Hairdresser of the Year, James’ determination has led him to become a prolific name in the industry at a young age. As a favourite of singer Fleur East, James creates hair looks for her for music videos, live performances and TV appearances, including The One Show, This Morning, Sunday Brunch and many more.

James has a distinctive hair style – creating effortlessly sexy undone hair, and even though he is skilled in cutting and colouring his passion lays in editorial braiding and the art of styling hair.

James added: “I’m really looking forward to the future at Hazel & Haydn. Dale and his team are incredibly creative and it’s such a beautiful salon. We have a great year planned out and I can’t wait to get started.”
