Carla Octigan

With over thirty years experience Carla’s real passion for hairdressing returned to her when she opened Shine Holistic. With her team of motivated professionals, she soon fell back in love with all that is creative hairdressing.

Her strength is reading between the lines, to find out what her clients really want. Her communication skills mean she is often accused of being a mind reader.

Carla loves to create natural shapes and textures using scissors, but her 30+ years of experience really shine through in her colouring skills. This love of natural looking healthy hair means your colour will have durability and be as low maintenance as possible. She understands that today’s busy women are too cool and too busy to be tied to the colouring bottle unnecessarily.

The proof that all this works superbly well for her clients is that many will now travel in from their new homes across the world for appointments with her.

I have been coming to Shine ever since it opened its original branch in Stoke Newington - and have never wanted to go anywhere else. I love the place. It's a West End-quality salon in north London. Carla, one of the owners, cuts my hair and does the best, most natural highlights. I also have regular beauty treatments here, and they are consistently great, no matter which therapist you see. I had one of the best facials I've ever had with Dana recently. The recent refurbishments to the Newington Green salon just make this place better and better - it's a real treat to get your hair cut here!
