With so many so-called experts in the hair and beauty industry it is rare to discover a new talent that has the propensity to change the very way in which we look at style. Tasha Dixon is a phenomenal woman who is doing just this, starting her career as a junior as at the modest age of 13 and she is now entering her 12th year in the hair and beauty industry. She as worked in some of Britain’s leading salons including Hibiscus, Hair & Nail Studio, Vanessa Andar, Toni & Guy, Expressions InHair and Junior Green. With her passion for hair and beauty Tasha Dixon offers groundbreaking creativity.
Following the birth of her daughter in 2001 Tasha needed a flexible working schedule and took the decision to start Blackfingers. Working from a dedicated room in her home to create own personal hair salon, she has not looked back since. Blackfingers London celebrated 7 years in business in April 2010. Since trading from home with a client base of 20, she has become an established and respected hair stylist with over 200 clients now on the books, working from a luxurious salon in South Woodford.
As the business has grown, so has her reputation, she has worked with numerous celebrities. She has worked with Ozwald Boateng as a stylist for his fashion shows during London Fashion week and shows in Ghana. She was the stylist for pop star Sabrina Washington in the “OMG” music video, album cover and press shots in 2010.
