The Gherkin
With Lee Stafford, Katia, Clayre Sodeau and Jamie Harrison
Duration9 minutes
Skill levelAdvanced


Lee Stafford’s long haircut is brilliant for women with long hair in the salon who want something different, but don't want any length lost. It's a commercial wearable look, but has a real bite and twist to the shape. Don't be put off by the sectioning, trust the process. The result is something different with all the length left. It’s girlie, it’s wearable and it's commercial.
