Samantha was born in South Uist, Scotland and started her career in the Scottish Highlands at Ego Hair Design. This gave her the opportunity to explore her creativity in this multi award winning salon. She contributed her creativity together with the team winning the Great British Hairdressing award in 2019. It was after moving to Glasgow that she discovered her passion for hair color. After building a successful career of about 10 years, she decided to expand her talent and continue her adventure in The Netherlands. Having created great hairstyles at D01 Salon in Amsterdam, Samantha discovered her specialisation in haircoloring and haircutting for women. Becoming quite popular at the salon she got inspired to continue as a freelance hair artist at Bohimea in Haarlem.
