What’s one thing you want your clients to know about you?

I have done extensions since I was 17 and I’m 29 now, Extensions was always what fascinated me and at the time of leaving school actually had no interest in even doing “regular” hairdressing but at the time of learning to do any credible extensions course you had to be a qualified hairdresser so effectively was forced into doing normal hairdressing for a while which I’m now actually grateful for as I think it’s made me better at hair extensions because I have an understanding of hair all round and can offer my advice when it comes to colour to clients and can do the more intricate cuts for the clients that just want volume on their short haircuts like bobs.

What’s your favourite thing about doing extensions?

Being able to give clients that have always been insecure about their hair, the hair they thought wasn’t even possible, I always say there’s only so much a cut and colour can do but with extensions within reason there’s always something you can do to make someone’s inspiration pic their reality.

Why did you want to get into the beauty industry?

I saw first-hand from the women in my family and friends when I was just a teenager the difference hair can make.

Can you share a memorable experience or client transformation that stands out to you?

During lockdown my sister completely wrecked her hair making her insecure. She was straightening it daily purely out of boredom and when lockdown lifted, I fitted her extensions and gave her a plan on how to get her hair better, she now doesn’t even wear any hair extensions because we were able to get her place to where she’s confident in her own hair without the need for extensions.

What is your favourite product to use within the salon?

Colour wow style on steroids is my favourite product to use.

What is your top tip for great hair?

When wearing extensions don’t just ignore your own hair. When we remove your extensions when needed let me trim what needs to come off to maintain healthy natural hair. Use decent salon quality products, I find that most people I see benefit from a weekly Philip Kingsley elasticiser treatment on the ends.

Don’t just take our word for it—hear what our delighted clients have to say about their hair transformation experiences with James!

“I couldn’t be happier!  James did my hair for me after a hairdresser completely ruined my hair adding awful layers, meaning I had to cut about 5 inches off to correct. I went to V&B and explained the situation, saying I had never wanted extensions, but I really wanted my hair back. James listened to all of my concerns, I was very nervous when I got to my appointment and he said, “You will love it Kelly but if you’re not sure, let’s not do this” He was so kind, and I am SO GLAD I went ahead. Lovely salon too. Thank-you James and V&B!” – Kelly Watts

“I had 1/4 head micro bonds fitted by James to thicken out my fine hair long bob. I love the final look! James is great, he really listens to what you want and advises as to what would work best. The colour match was amazing, and the cut/styling was perfect. I would only every go to V&B for extensions, the hair is superb, and the stylists are truly specialists. Thank you, James!” – Aimee Cain
