hairdressers at home | Sally Brooks

April 13, 2022

This month we’ve spoken to three times British Hairdresser of the Year and industry pioneer Sally Brooks of Brooks & Brooks about what she is watching, reading and doing this spring…


Oh so many! I can’t sit still for long; my two dogs are my favourite pastime and the loves of my life. Making things with clay and sculpture is so therapeutic so if I have had a busy or a stressful day, I just get out a lump of clay and make something. I also love painting and trying out new things; my house has so many pots and art stuff in it.

BEST BOX SET | Emily in Paris

It’s just on in the background without me needing to use my brain and I love that about it!

BEST BUILDING | Renovation 

I’m a bit of a property magnet – I love interior design and redesign – and I would move every two years if I could as I love new beginnings. I love to see a building restored and love a mix of old and new. So I love all sorts of buildings and properties and am always looking at pins on this; bars, restaurants, hotels, lights, walls, trends. So I suppose it’s more design rather than architecture.

BEST SHOW | Les Miserables

Is my favourite show for a couple of reasons; I love the music and the cast is always exceptional. I could see it over and over again or just listen to the music. It’s also my parents’ favourite show and my family sing when they get together so it has a strong family bond.

BEST BOOK | The Atlas of Beauty

Mihaela Noroc travels the world with her camera taking pictures of natural beauty. I think the images are stunning and in my other life I would have loved the opportunity to do something this real and passionate. It really captures beauty in a way that I find really inspiring.
