Seanie

I was born and raised by the sea, and to this day I consider water to be my medicine. Since arriving in the city of Bristol in 2016 I have embarked on a deep journey with myself through the lens of yoga. I am a trained advanced yoga teacher and an artist working in symbolic abstract form. I am fully trained in hair, and have been practicing for over 15 years. My deepest passion is to find harmony, and this is woven in everything I do.

Where my artistic flare started

Ever since I was a young girl I had a fascination with textures, colours, shapes, movement and hair. I spent hours upon hours playing with my dollies hair, often cutting it…. Then getting upset that it didn’t grow back! Im a little wiser now :) I was always excited by the visual creation of cutting hair, I had a natural flare it seems.

Where I am now

Fast forward 30 years and I consider myself a Holistic Hair Consultant, along side an Advanced Yoga Teacher and Artist. I like to call myself a consultant because I work with clients to achieve long term health and wellbeing with their hair. I explore things such as lifestyle, current relationship with hair, product use, emotional aspects often connected to hair, desires and what is achievable. We work on long term goals, short term goals and bringing clarity on unachievable goals. I will aim to make a plan if one is needed, and work together with you. I have clear boundaries I work within, this enables me to work safely for both myself and client.

Colour services

I do work with colour, and only offer certain services that stay within the health of the hair, this means I work in a much softer way with colour, enhancing what you already have. Or supporting a slow journey away from colour usage all together.

Lara

Curly Cuts and Fine Hair

Since opening the salon I have unsuspectingly become known for my curly cuts. I love big wild bushy manes, probably because I have always envied them. Despite that, I also deal with fine hair (like my own) and if you (like me) only want the tiniest trim because your hair grows slowly (sigh, like mine) I am your woman!

My Hair Journey and Obsession

Battering my hair to death a few years ago after over a decade of abusing it was one of the best things that could have happened to me, although I didn’t realise at the time. Hair has always been an obsession/passion. Somehow, through this near catastrophe I became obsessed with the “No-Poo” method and started obsessively studying herbalism and brewing concoctions to try to fix what I had done. I am so glad I did as it set me on the path to want to help others to do the same.

Assisting Others on Their Natural Hair Journey

Assisting others on their journey to ditching the bottled products and saving money AND plastic, is where I want to be.

Grateful for the Opportunity

Every day since I opened the doors in October 2017 I have felt incredibly grateful, I enjoy every working day, get to meet amazing people in my local community, learn, teach, grow and see your hair getting better and better with each visit.

Bobbi

My Passion for Hairdressing

I have been a hair stylist for 7 years now. Training in several Bristol salons, before setting up my own mobile business, I have now found my home at Tame the Mane.

Collaborating at Tame the Mane

I have worked in collaboration with Lara for 3 years now helping to build what I believe is a truly progressive project. I love the collaboration process of hairdressing and helping to make people look and feel great in themselves.

Cutting Curls and Senior Colour Technician

Cutting curls is a true joy at Tame the Mane and helping curly girls (and boys) who have had years of terrible haircuts really makes my job worthwhile. As the salon’s senior colour technician I can help create colours specifically for you and colour your cut to make it pop. Or blend in beautiful greys so you can rock your grey hair without it feeling drab while softening stark roots.

Hair Health and Manager Role

At Tame the Mane, hair health is at the centre of what we do so ‘sometimes less is more’ is our motto. That way your hair can look great and stay feeling great too! In the role of manager, it has been a joy to bring new stylists into the team and teach them, just the way Lara taught me about natural, holistic hair care, curly cutting, and how it is possible to have a judgement-free, relaxing salon experience.
