Cinnamen trained as a hairdresser in Melbourne, Australia and after 9 years of working in a salon decided to follow her dream of living in Europe. She packed her bags and moved to the hairdressing capital of the world – London – in 2002.

With two years managing a salon in Covent Garden under her belt she was drawn to working in a holistic environment. Joining Shine in 2005 she found her ideal space and has happily built a very loyal following in Stoke Newington.

Cinnamen has a great passion for colour and loves using Aveda & OCS organic colours, which give the hair a great sheen, making her job a pleasure. She also loves the health component of Shine.

‘Being at Shine helped me to decide that I wanted to further my learning and last year I trained to become a Reflexologist.’

Ten years of living in London has allowed her to travel, see the world and meet some wonderful people who have broadened her horizons and shaped her life.
