It’s time for another of our Meet the Team: five minutes with series, and this month we’re chatting with one of our brilliant stylists Amir. Lets get started!
Tell us a bit about what it’s like working for aer?
My colleagues make it the most fun as we’re all part of a strong team. The style of the store and atmosphere make it a really welcoming place to work. It’s great meeting different people throughout the day too.
What attracted to you working in the hair industry?
I have a huge passion for hair and style. I love the power we have to change someone’s image and create something new and exciting for them. You never get bored in this industry!
What hair trends are you loving at the moment?
Braids are such a big trend and are transitioning from Summer to Autumn/Winter styles at the moment which is cool to see. I also like hair that has a lot of natural movement to it, you have much more freedom with more hair to play with.
Celeb hair crush?
Actress Julianne Moore, she always looks so elegant and has gorgeous auburn/red hair. Her style history at the Golden Globes is beautiful, she always looks amazing!
What are some of your top hair care tips?
I would recommend using Parabon free shampoos and conditioners. Hair masks are great to revitalise the hair- use the night before an event or after a stressful week. You can never have enough moisturising products and when possible I’d suggest making the most of the in salon treatments offered such as hair masks. Here at aer we offer the Kerastase 5 minute Fusio-Dose which is offers an instant boost for your hair.
Fave aer blowdry?
The London, it makes your hair gorgeously soft and has a nice body to it.
Dream getaway destination?
Tibet or India – just for all the incredible colours!
I like West London for it’s greenery and it’s a quiet escape from the hustle and bustle – there are lots of relaxed pubs and parks.
Must watch film?
Stalker directed by Tarkovsky is a psychological thriller film, perfect for Halloween!
