Lorna Baker - Education manager UK & ROI
“No two days are the the same for me. From guiding the education team to educating stylist to creative show and shoot work, my role is varied to say the least. With a passion that lies in vintage styling, I love to use retro references to create classic styles and finishes. While classic glamour is where my heart is, I’m also perfectly at home creating something completely different at London Fashion Week.”
Jordan Thomas - National & key account educator
“Having worked with ghd for three years, I have been able to continually perfect my styling and develop my creativity. The best part is sharing this and showing how to transform a person in a short amount of time, without the need to pick up scissors. I am lucky enough to be part of an incredible team that works alongside salons to teach them our techniques, tips and tricks to deliver the best result to their clients.”
