Sarah Astley began her career at Art School with an ambition to be a designer, painter or architect before discovering a love of hairdressing at the age of 19. She undertook a nine-month private course at Vidal Sassoon in London and upon graduating she underwent barber training at London's revered Brooke St barbershop. Sarah continued to work at several Sassoon salons over the next 20 years, including teaching in the Academies, where she has trained many of the most notable barbers of recent years, including Dale Ted Watkins.
Sarah continues to cut men's hair in the prestigious Realhair
salon in Chelsea where her precision and attention to detail maintains a loyal following of high profile clients.
