“If I could pick any celebrity in the near future – I would choose Simon Cowell.

Ricky, who started his hairdressing career at the age of 16 in a small salon in Pinner, said he worked his magic on some of the world’s most famous politicians.
“I like to do Boris Johnson and Donald Trump’s hair – I think these guys could do it all with a little attention,” he laughed.

“Seeing my clients like catching up with old friends and getting second hair, even though we do incredible hair, it’s always nice to see their faces,” she said.
“I always love going to the salon or seeing if we do hair for the awards ceremony.”
“If it’s a really formal ceremony, maybe pick a more formal hairstyle or if it’s everyday maybe a beach wave, depending on what they’re doing that day.
“I’ve been working on the London Comedy scene for a number of years – we do a lot of comedians,” Ricky shared.

After sharing his vision for the celebrity hangout, Ricky said: “When you walk into the salon it doesn’t feel like a salon at all. We want to be a little bit more innovative and innovative.
“It’s a cocktail bar and then to the back of the shop and all the settings are facing inwards around the fire pit, and the fire pit is lit in the evening for the club.

Inspired by the likes of British hairstylist John Frieda, Ricky shared his top tips for achieving beautiful smooth hair.

“I recommend everyone to use it salon64 shampoo it’s like five days more, and less McDonald’s hair.”
