Name: Loren Miles
Occupation: Hair Stylist at BLEACH
Mission in life: Cliche, but to be happy, keep doing what I love and to see the world
Where is home to you? North London
Perks of the job: Meeting new people, everyone has their own story. Working with the others, we’re all close and it’s always a lot of fun
How would you describe your style? Most of the time I probably look like an art teacher. I work odd hours and tend to meet my friends out afterwards. So you’ll usually see me wearing my Mom Jeans or Dungarees and covered in colour.
Favourite hair trends for summer? Summer to me = festivals and holidays, I can’t wait! Braids, plaits, buns, messy ponytails and beach wave
Favourite go to hair style? For me it;’s the just out of bed look, usually because I’ve just got out of bed. I like my hair messy and it dries kind wavy naturally. I’ll sometimes all in a few faves and use some Bleach Swamp Spritz to make it look more ‘done’
Worst haircut on file? Ahh man. As a moody teenager I cut all my hair off into a short weird crop. I definitely shaved some of it as well, it wasn’t great.
Who were some of your hair influences growing up? Gwen Stefani, any of the cast from the TV show Tribe and Daryl Hannah in Splash
Best piece of hair advice? Really standard, but always use heat protector. People forget about it BECAUSE it doesn’t seem to give you any instant results. You get tons of damage from heat styling over time and if you’re trying to grow your hair long, then it is key!
Junk Food Weakness? CRISPS. Loads of crisps. Especially the rubbish ones.
Rainy Day Movie? Romeo & Juliet if I’m feeling soppy, or anything by Wes Anderson. Love him.
Where would we find you on a typical Friday night? At the salon, we work late! Eating food round Central or East, I eat out way too much!
