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


Lee Stafford’s salon creative haircut is brilliant for girls that have long hair that come into the salon and 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. Do not be put off by the sectioning, trust the process.
