Schwarzkopf Global Colour Ambassador now based in London
She’s one of the busiest and most acclaimed colourists in the world, and now Lesley Jennison has found a London base at Billi Currie salon in Marylebone.
The salon, owned and run by Billi Currie and Debbie G, was launched in 2007 and is renowned for its exceptional colour work – making it the ideal base for Schwarzkopf Professional’s global colour ambassador.
The new partnership isn’t just about a match of creative minds – it’s also the culmination of a relationship lasting more than two decades. Billi, Debbie and Lesley met at Vidal Sassoon, which Lesley joined in 1984 and where they worked together as a close creative team for many years. Beyond creating beautiful hair together, the trio formed a firm bond, easy relationship and respect for one another’s work.
As well as providing a new London base for Lesley – who spends much of her time travelling the world shooting, educating and filming for Schwarzkopf Professional – her new role at the salon will also provide the team with ongoing creative inspiration and education. As creative colour director for the salon, she will be mentoring a future generation of colourists and sharing her wealth of experience with the team.
“I’m super excited to have Lesley joining us,” says Debbie. “She is a genius when it comes to colour, has amazing energy and is full of inspiring motivation. It is a dream come true for our team to get to work alongside such a true talent.”
“Lesley and I worked together for many years,” adds Billi. “And now we have the chance to recapture our glorious past – and create a wonderful future in our Marylebone salon.”
