Meet the Team


Tom O’Brien


At just 14, Tom started out as a Saturday boy which later evolved into a full time career—something he’d always dreamed about. His training took place in Knightsbridge, London working for Toni & Guy where his passion for the beauty and glamour of the hair world, was ignited. With each year, Tom pushed himself further, entering industry competitions and arriving home with trophies.

As a finalist of British Avante Garde Hairdresser of the year, Tom’s career continued to gain momentum. Session styling became an obsession and one of his proudest achievements was styling the latest spring/summer looks for Amanda Wakeley at Claridges. Tom has continued to work at London fashion week and high profile industry events, demonstrating new concepts and ideas. Tom’s work is creative and diverse and has featured on the front cover of numerous glossy industry magazines, published all around the world.

With over 25 years experience, let Tom work his magic, he won’t let you down.

Tom now works from the Ripon Salon on a Tuesday and a Wednesday.
Please contact the salon directly on 01765 647177 for an appointment.
