About...

15 years ago, Regina sat behind her office desk somewhere in her hometown of Belgium and suddenly thought “I am moving to London and I am going to become a hairdresser!” Armed with a suitcase and a few hundred pounds, she did just that.

The journey began right at the top of the industry at the prestigious John Frieda salon in Mayfair where Regina began building her profile as a highly sought after freelance stylist, working her creative skills across various other salons including Headmasters and fashionable independents in Shoreditch. Regina extended her range in specialist skills across all textures, extensions or natural hair and male or female clients. An impressive and loyal clientele now follow Regina’s talents including celebrities such as Tinashe, K Michelle, Belinda Carlisle, Mrs Moneypenny, Marco Pierre White and high profile business owners.

Regina has accumulated various nominations and accolades including the L’Oréal Colour Trophy and the Black Hair & Beauty Awards. Alongside her styling work, Regina is a senior technical consultant for Avlon; an established international hair care product brand. Using her specialist knowledge and multilingual skills, she regularly travels around the world on the brand’s behalf contributing to hair seminars and shows.

Qualification includes a Colour Degree at L’Oréal Technical Centre (London) and is an assessor for NVQ in hairdressing. 

In the last few years, Regina has been fully freelance and has plunged into the adventures of session styling for television shows such as MTV EMA’s, London and Paris fashion weeks, magazines, music videos and artists.
