Darren Webster is the joint owner of luxurious London salon Webster Whiteman.
Over his twenty-year career, the London Hairdresser of the Year 2005 Finalist
has earned himself an enviable list of achievements.
After training at the prestigious Steiner salon chain in his hometown of Leeds
and travelling the globe as a hairdresser on the QE2, Darren moved down to the
bright lights of London to develop his salon skills and pursue his passion for session styling.
Fuelled with a healthy dose of determination, dedication and drive, Darren quickly
rose up through the ranks. Whilst working as a manager for Cobella’s flagship
Mayfair branch and travelling internationally with the salons’ Artistic team,
Darren’s phenomenal work became increasingly recognised and demands for his styling
came flooding in. From designing the hair for couture shows as part of London
Fashion Week, creating the looks on TV programmes such as Top of the Pops to colouring
and styling for Pantene and Herbal Essences advertising commercials, Darren Webster’s
talents have catapulted him onto the runway to session success.
Despite successfully managing one of the capital’s hottest salons, it was time
for Darren to spread his wings. Keen to create a relaxing environment which embodied
the warm feeling of home, Darren joined forces with Lisa Whiteman and
set up Webster Whiteman in 2003.
Four years on, the concept for the salon has proved incredibly popular. Inspired
by everything from fashion trends to furniture, Darren’s specialist skills have
won him a large and loyal clientele who adore his first-class finishing and commitment
to service. Whether it’s a celebrity client or full-time mum who’s sitting in
his chair, Darren gives everyone the same five-star treatment and loves encouraging
people to keep their individual image looking fresh by trying something new.
Not one to rest on his laurels, success makes Darren hungry to achieve more. Whilst
he recognises that reaching the finals of both the British Hairdressing Awards
and British Hairdressing Business Awards are tremendous accolades, Darren’s dream
is to win. And with preparations for the 2008 entries already underway, his boundless
enthusiasm and remarkable skills mean that achieving this illustrious goal is
only a matter of time.
