Salon Owner & Manager:
As the proud owner of two successful hair salons, for almost three decades husband and wife team Tracie and Des Webb have been providing exceptional haircare in Sudbury and Colchester. As a self-confessed perfectionist, no detail is too small and no style too ambitious for Des who enjoys working with both men and women's hair, but has a particular passion for hairstyles requiring a little TLC and some expertise to take them to that next level.
Whilst hair products, styling tools and fashions may have advanced greatly throughout the 27 years, one thing has main constant and that's Des's unmistakeable drive to teach his staff the highest possible standard of hairdressing.
If you had to reveal one piece of expert haircare advice, what would it be?
Always listen to your hairdresser!
