What was your very first job:   waiter at The Mains of Balquhairn in Portlethen

What was your path to Linton and Mac:   I met both of the girls at Ishoka where I worked for four years - a couple of months after Jen and Jaye opened Linton and Mac I came down to congratulate them. As soon as I saw the vibe of the place and the attitude of the staff, I though: this is where I want to work!

Who are your industry idols:   Akin Konizi // Bruno Marc // Daniel Spiller // Angelo Vallillo

Style icons:   I don't believe in style icons - you should be diverse

Describe your own personal style in three words:   skater boy // mod // gentleman

If you could have any one else in the salons style for one day, who's would you steal and why:   Laura, Jaye and Autumn - they are all different, they're not your typical TopShop gals... they're the female versions of me!

Worst hair day and why:   2009 - bleach blonde with a black side strip, like Liam Gallagher

Where do you see yourself in five years time:   maybe starting a wee family already, in a lovely house - finishing my iD Artist experience and with an industry award or two under my belt

Favourite movie:   Patch Adams // Bridesmaids // Mrs Doubtfire

Favourite book:   Paul Gascoigne's autobiography

Words to live by:   "Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive about what could go right!"

Worst habit:   interrupting people and finishing their sentences // talking too much

What colour in a box of paints best describes you and why:   black - it's plain and simple and you know what you are getting

What single individual has taught you most in life and what have you learned from them:   my dad John Brier - he taught me that no matter where you come from, no matter if you are rich or poor, all men are equal. He said that you should never look down on someone unless you are helping them up - and that respect is something that should always be given, never earned.
