Julian Dalrymple

Salon Director

I started my career two decades ago and I still wake up each morning with the same drive and passion- maybe even more so- than when I first started. I truly love what I do.

One of the wonderful things about my profession is that it’s always changing and there’s always room for creative thinking and setting new trends. There’s nothing more rewarding than having a spark of an idea and watching it grow and flourish.

My journey has taken me to so many amazing places- seminars, stage work and top photographic shoots across the Uk , Europe and even traveling to America where I won Editorial shot of the year at a Global hairdressing event. Everyday feels like a new adventure and I’m so lucky to be part of such an inspiring profession.

By working hard and doing my best to make a lasting impression in the fashion world, I’ve received many awards, become a Milkshake Ambassador (an honour all on it’s own!) and have been a winner at the British Hairdressing Awards- though making my clients feel special and building a team of incredibly talented stylists are the biggest rewards of all!

Since opening my salon, The Sitting Room, in 2006 I strongly believe my team has become one of the best around and with their support and cutting-edge ideas we have built a service that we are all incredibly proud of.

“This award (Northern Ireland Hairdresser of the Year 2016) cements Julian as Northern Ireland’s leading hair talent. But a win doesn’t just mean you’re the very best in the area; it also marks you out as one of the greatest stylists in the country.”
-Jayne Lewis-Orr- Hairdressers Journal International Executive Director.

Fiona

Colour Technician

I am a colour technician. My main aim is personalize every colour to suit each client, from beautiful classic looks to high fashion. No colour job is to big or to small and I am always very honest with my salon guests.

I've been colouring for many years and have been with The Sitting Room since day one. I have completed training in London and Dublin academy's. I have done stage work at Salon Excel in London and have been involved in various local events. I have previously won Colourist Of The Year and have taken part in photo-shoots for the British Hairdressing Awards (which is amazing). I also thoroughly enjoy passing on what I've learnt about colour to our salon trainees. Colour is my passion!

Clare

Senior Stylist

I have been part of the sitting room team for over 8 years and just love what I do, my main aim is to make every client leave the salon feeling a million dollars. I am a bit of an all rounder in salon from colouring to cutting.

Bridal hair and up styles are also something I just love, being part of someones big day is such a special part of my job.

Gents cutting is a very strong part of what I really enjoy.

Lyndsey

Stylist

Hairdressing is not just my job but what I love to do. I am a bit of an all rounder enjoying cutting, colouring and making my clients feel great about themselves.

Up-styles are also something I really enjoy doing. Getting someone glammed up for that big night out is fab!

Being part of The Sittingroom Team has allowed me to develop my skills to the best of my ability.

I am excited to see what the future holds for me in the salon.
