Betsy Harmer

Senior Stylist, Colourist & Educator Betsy Harmer followed her dream to become a hairdresser, joining the Mova family in 2011 and qualifying three years later. She specialises in cutting, colouring, and Nanokeratin hair smoothing.

Which hair styles and colours do you love creating?  My favourite aspects of hairdressing are blowdrying & styling.  I love getting my clients ready for a night out by making their hair look fabulous! I also specialise in cutting and colouring and the Nanokeratin hair smoothing treatment.

What do you love about being a hairdresser? I couldn’t be in a career where every day is the same, it wouldn’t be my nature. This job is so varied day to day and making my clients feel good about themselves is the best feeling.

Which celebrity would you love to see walk through the salon doors?   Simon Cowell. I would give him a cheeky undercut to remove the look of his square box head.

Who inspires you?  Guy Tang. I regularly check on his Instagram because his colour work is inspirational.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which three hair products could you not live without?  First things first would be dry shampoo because there wouldn’t be any appropriate water to give myself a good hair wash. Following this would be a water spray so that I could attempt the hair wash, and lastly Kerastase Serum to keep the frizz on the down low. 

What is your ultimate ambition?  To do hair and make-up on TV and film sets.

How would you describe yourself in three words? Bob Marley lover.
