Diana Francis

I am an independent Stylist and Make-up artist with over 17 years of experience in the public sector, private sector for celebrities as well as for live stages shows, videos, and television.

I have worked on a wide range of video and photo shoots, travelling around the UK and abroad. I also feature in a Television show called Sisterhood where I advise and demonstrate makeup, makeovers and tips for hair, nails and skin.

I am extremely confident with my reputation within the industry and feel the need to branch out a little further, therefore In 2009 I intend to close the Salon and return to the world of freelancing.

History

  • In the Begining

    My College Days

    Completed a two year course in hair and beauty

    This course prepared me for all industries involving hair and beauty. At the end of my second year I secured a position with Vidal Sasoon Hair Salon in Knightsbridge. I stayed for three months however, because I was not from their school of teaching I was not considered a priority student and their students needed to be placed within Vidal Sasoon. Vidal Sasoon was kind enough to offer me a position once I became a stylist.

  • First Job

    Fabulous Fingers Nail Studio

    All About Nails

    I learnt the art of nail sculpturing. I learnt all the nail sculpturing systems such as gel, acrylic, silk wrap and fibreglass. I built myself a reputation and won several nail competitions in the meantime

Experience

  • Understanding

    Learning the trade

    @ THIRD COMPANY

    After a year I left Fabulous Fingers and joined Alan D’s in the West End. Mr Alan had several businesses but I was based in the West End. Because I was an all rounder and able to work with Afro and European hair I was frequently seconded to the other salons particularly when they were short staffed. Four years later I felt I had learnt all I could to endeavour running my own salon.

Time Out

  • Family

    Motherhood

    Working from Home

    At this point I wanted to have a baby and so I took some time away from the industry and gave birth to my son, Jahmal. For three and a half years I worked from home.

Opening My Own Salon

  • Entrepreneur

    Eclectic

    Open my own salon

    My reputation has continued to grow and I had the privilege to work at many events including The Brits and M.O.B.O award shows. I have worked at the Brits twice, working for Beyonce, the Black Eye Peas and 50 cent. The following year I worked with Snoop Dogg and Pharell. For the M.O.B.O debut awards show I did the makeup at the nominations. The following year I did hair and makeup for various artists, dancers and presenters.

The Good Hair Guide

May 29, 2017

I would like to say, it doesn’t matter how much times I tell my client’s how to look after their hair, once they have left the salon, it doesn’t seem to resonate. So I thought I would put pen to paper, to help people to look after theirs and their family’s hair daily. Being in...
