It would be difficult not to find a specialist that suits your style at Hampton Salon as it has a team of 30 individuals, each with their own unique "hair philosophy." Stylist Jamie Lee's mantra, for instance, is: "the correct hairstyle helps exude confidence" and "first impressions are everything."
Jamie, who has been at Hampton Salon for a little more than nine years, has had training from international icon Toni&Guy, has worked backstage with Oribe, has had Schwarzkopf professional color training, and studied MisaelArt's color and movement theories. She uses Schwarzkopf color and Oribe and Bumble and bumble styling products. Whatever she does, Jamie wants to help people find their own unique style without resorting to wearing frocks they've created out of old school-play costumes.
