Meet the Team
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.

Will was originally trained by Tom O’Brien, before moving to Brighton to follow his passion for session styling, he is highly skilled with the L’Oreal colour palette and is a talented technical cutter.
The team at Baroque and many of our established guests, are super excited about Will’s return to Baroque, he commands the role of a Senior Art Director.
