Meet the Team
KRISTINA : MASTER STYLIST
Kristina Buivydaite, originally from Lithuania, moved to London 18 years ago, where a passion for hairdressing was discovered.
After completing a Toni&Guy Beginners course, which she passed with distinction, then working within the media world of London’s Soho, she joined the world-famous Trevor Sorbie salon in Covent Garden, where she built an exclusive clientele over the last 10 years.
Kristina feels privileged to have worked alongside some of the country’s top hairdressers including Angelo Seminara and M.B.E Trevor Sorbie. It was here that Kristina’s passion turned into an exceptional talent, specializing now in techniques of hair cutting, looking at each client as an individual, then creating amazing hair, unique to hair type and most importantly their personality, giving confidence to everyone that leaves the salon.
