When did you start at Linton and Mac:   opening day in September 2015

What was your very first job:   Saturday girl at Jodazzle salon on King Street until I left school

What was your path to Linton and Mac:   I trained as a medical secretary when I left school, but that wasn't for me... then went onto be a nursery nurse for a bit, but that wasn't really for me either... so, I was keen to get back into hairdressing and my sister Natasha was friends with Jaye after working with her and was going to go and work in her new salon she was opening, so I asked her to put a good word in for me! I had an interview with Jen and Jaye at the Illiticit Still - I remember Levi was leaving as I cam in and I thought oh my god! And then the question... like what were my favourite magazines and stuff like that...!!!

What are your highlights of working at Linton ad Mac so far:   meeting my bestie Kayleigh! // all the training and running my own column on a Saturday now // working as a tight team // the trips I've been on to London to visit Windle & Moodie and to go to L'Oreal Colour Trophy, twice! // the first Barber Bash // the couple of times Sergio has come from Windle & Moodie for training days with the team // so many good times!

What are your dreams, goals and ambitions:   to be rich // to not have to work // to have my own family // to travel the world doing editorial shoots // to maybe live in London for a while whilst I'm young // to tour about, but always come home - home is wherever my mum is

Who are your industry idols:   Neil Moodie // Adam Reid // Jen Atken 

Style icons:   Bella Hadid // Emma Louise Connolly // Jessica Anne Woodley // Kim Kardashian // Rosie Huntington Whiteley

Describe your own personal style in three words:   I'm defs not a girly girl! I like to mix it up... RANDOM!

If you could have any one else in the salons style for one day, who's would you steal and why:   a bit of Levi and a bit of Autumn - both are quite quirky and like the same stuff that I like... I love the personal twists Autumn puts into her looks and I would have Levi's whole wardrobe, if I had her figure! 

Worst hair day and why:   my sister bleached my hair when I was about 13 as part of her training and I got it cropped on one side trying to go for the Frankie from the Saturday's look - but really I looked like I was questioning my sexuality!

Where do you see yourself in five years time:   maybe senior stylist at Linton and Mac, saving for a flat (but probably gonna be 40 and still living with mum!) and hopefully being the proud mummy of a micro pig

Who are your favourite follows on Instagram:   Kendall Jenner // Emma Louise Connolly // Shania Twain (obsessed!) // Bella Hadid // Ryan Gosling // Scott Disick // Proudlock // Chrissy Teigan // Neil Moodie // Bleach London // Mane Addicts // Milk

Top holiday destinations:   BEEN - not really cultural, more for a piss-up, Prague // DREAM - the Maldives and Nashville with Kyle 

Favourite hang-outs in Aberdeen:   Soul // Rev // Inny // Nandos // daytrips to Ballater

Top tunes on your playlist just now:   Shania // Florence // Beyonce // Paolo Nutini // a bit of old school // Linton and Mac playlists are pretty good too

Favourite movie:   Harry Potter, all of them // Cross Roads // The Road

Favourite book:   I read a page and then forget what I've read!

Words to live by:   "everything happens for a reason"

Worst habit:   going bright red when I am nervous, or stuttering or speaking utter shite!

What colour in a box of paints best describes you and why:   avocado green - because I'm a pretty calm person and not in your face

What single individual has taught you most in life and what have you learned from them:   Samantha, my mama - she's taught me how to appreciate everything... she loves me and my sister so much and would do anything for us - she still packs us lunches!! I totally love my mum and couldn't live without her
