The 80’s Rock n Roll hairdresser

I started as an apprentice at Leonard’s of Mayfair Daniel Galvin (http://www.danielgalvin.com) and the world’s top colourist was my Teacher. Nicky Clarke was also training with me at that time. My Boss Leonard was responsible for doing the Hair of the Fab Four’s legendry Mop Tops. His Clients included the worlds most glamorous Movie Stars and Icons of the Fashion Industry, Twiggy, Zandra Rhodes, even Frank Sinatra and President Kennedy. I could go on for ever but this site is about me, but rest assured I learnt from the very best.

After two years of running the colouring department for my former Vidal Sassoon buddies Paul Cannon and Steve Carson, I was ready to open my first London salon, which eventually expanded to 4 London salons, under the name "Special Effects"

Each Salon was in a way groundbreaking in salon design. This is still as passion of mine and is also reflected in my new Studio in Bangkok Thailand.

In London I became known as “Johny Live The Rock n Roll Hairdresser” although my passion was really for Classic and romantic cuts, but this name stuck due to my working with Deff Leppard, Thin Lizzy, The Pogues, Bad Company, The Communards, Anni Lennox to name but a few. I even had the pleasure of consultations with Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie and Meryl Streep. To be honest there are too many people to remember and many stories I cannot tell, but it was amazing experience doing what I love and that is the feeling of being able to make a woman look and feel more sensual and in tune with her sexuality.

Life is somewhat more relaxed these days (thank God) but my passion for hair has not changed. I’ve opened a Studio In Bangkok and for the last 5 years have been cutting and colouring the Bangkok elite, amazing expat ladies, local media and TV personalities, it’s a pleasure it really is. I do home and hotel visits and now with my new studio I will be offering, strictly by appointment only, consultations from there. No turning up without an appointment, its not a Salon you know and that just would not be right would it! I do not belong to any organisations, there is so much more to hairdressing than learning just 5 Haircuts and there are 50 Billion crimpers out there, but there is only one Johny Live.

Enjoy the experience and spread the happiness...!
