Megon Van Eeden – Hairdresser and Barber
Why do you love the working in the hairdressing / barbering industry?:
I love working with people and helping them see and enhance their natural beauty. There is nothing better than seeing a client’s face light up after their appointment.
If you could solve one common hair problem what would it be and why?
It has to be scalp disorders as these can often lead to dry and dull hair. I truly believe that a key part of my job is helping people to feel more comfortable in their own skin and hair.
If you could solve one barbering problem what would it be and why?
Skin irritation after shaving as it is an issue that so many men suffer with. Taking away the itchy, sore and break outs on the skin helps to keep men’s skin feeling and looking youthful for longer.
Out of all the hair treatments and services you can give, which is your favourite & why?
Make overs! From cut to colour a complete revamp. I just love working with clients to create a new look for them. It’s the perfect way to help them with a new start or help them change. It can often be the catalyst for a more positive outlook on themselves and a boost in their confidence.
If you could receive one treatment offered by the centre what would it be and why?
Reflexology, everything in the body is connected to the feet and because I’m always on my feet I know how beneficial it can be. Plus it’s just an amazing treatment!
