Tell us about your business Black Moth Barbers.
Black moth barbers has been established for 8 years now the shop is an alternative barber shop. Every walk of life welcome. We like to think of it as a cult classic not a best seller. We are about to launch clothing, hair and beard products. All good things to come.
We decided to open the salon to offer an alter- native hair salon for woman. Eventually a one stop shop. We currently do all things hair and makeup but want to offer more services in the future such as nails, lip filler/Botox clinic.
Did you always want to be a hair stylist?
I never did. I started out as a professional dancer. Dancing for various different pop artists. Music videos, blue peter, top of the pops and MTV music awards to mention just a few.
My first job was dancing for Kylie Minogue in her famous video, can’t get you out of my head.
I had some amazing times and got to travel the world.
How would you describe your style I'd say there's a punk vibe would you agree? How has your style changed over the years?
Yes definitely there’s elements of this. I don’t like to stick to a style, I like to try different looks whether it be with my hair, clothing or makeup. I get bored quick and like to experiment It’s good to keep evolving yourself.
What's your opinion on the stigma attached to tattoos? Do you think it still exists and do you find yourself discriminated against because of how heavily tattooed you are?
I think there will always be a stigma although the world is more open minded and excepting. I still get judged.
I remember after I had my first son I was walking and a mother and daughter passed a comment saying,“Oh my god look at the state of her, can you believe she’s a mum”.
Not only did they slate my image they also assumed I was a terrible mother. Lol I’m a great mum and will always put my children first. I do get more positive comments than negative though.
When did you get your first tattoo and what was it?
I was around 18 and it was a tramp stamp lol. It’s now removed and covered over with an ongoing back piece of a Phoenix
What's your favourite tattoo and why?
Oh god that’s a hard one. I am loving my new back piece but it covers my back, bum, stomach and down my legs lol so it’s a pretty BIG piece not sure you can call it one tattoo though.
The most painful?
100% my palm
How would you describe yourself in 1 word?
