Working at Nancy Darcy Hairdressing for 10 years, Karen Wright is an absolute asset to the team. It’s not this abundance of experience that makes her unique, nor is it her infectious laugh or her typical northern charm, but it is the fact that she is only member of the team to have a degree; but wait it get’s better, she is the only Stylist within the North East to hold a Wella Colour Degree!
So much slicker than your average, Karen of course is a dab hand using placement to accentuate a cut, or selecting the right tones to accentuate skin and eye toning, or using colour to make a client feel better, but the tale as to why she is so special goes so far beyond this. As a senior colour technician in the salon, she’s exactly that. Doing the colours and making the decisions comes second nature to Karen, as to most colourists, but it is the very reasoning and understanding why that gives her her technician title.
The same with technicians in anything, the understanding is the foundation to the result. Karens colour degree gives her the skills to understand why certain choices must be made and so she can therefore make the right choices.
She understands why certain hair types need specific types of tones, and how to work not just with the client but also with the hair technically.
Not to knock our other stylists, who all have a wealth of colour knowledge, but Karens level of experience and degree knowledge is what makes her an expert in the field! Karen is the perfect partner for any client suffering from long-term colour problems, or anyone who never seems to get their colour just spot on.

A line from me: With my colour degree nothing is ever too big a challenge. ND is worth a visit for our famous hot chocolate alone.
