Hello, my name is Kirsty Whiskin and I’m a self-employed hairdresser at Hertford Hair!  ’ve been at Hertford hair since April 2018, previously working in The Old Brewhouse in Wheathampstead and at Saks Hertford.

I have done many hairdressing courses with L’Oreal in London ranging from colour change to balayage techniques. I specialise in colour and colour changes and love bold and bright hair as well as a subtle balayage! There is also nothing better than a restyle – and a big curly blow-dry is my favourite finish on hair to show to colour off and the texture of the hair. 

I find myself constantly watching different hair colour and cut tutorials online to further my knowledge and understanding I am very much a visual learner! I am also a very good listener which I think comes as part of the job. There is nothing better than a catch-up and chat with your clients, who over the years become your friends. I like to feel that we have a very good relationship and understanding of each other, which is the best feeling!

Since having my baby nearly two years ago, I work every Saturday and Sunday. This means I get five days a week to be with my little girl. I love being a mummy and wouldn’t change it for the world!
