One of the hair industry’s most recognised figures, Lee Stafford doesn’t just cut hair, he lives and breathes it. With a hugely successful product range, a multitude of television appearances and a beautiful fiancée, we honestly don’t know how he has time to fit it all in.
Recently Lee has moved away from cutting hair in salons and instead offers 1-on-1 “couture appointments”. These appointments are much more personal and allow Lee to create a hairstyle that you’ll not only love, but also be able to maintain.
On 6th November Lee also appeared on Channel 4′s “Secret Millionaire”. If you missed it the first time round you can again over at 4oD. We’d recommend it, but make sure you’ve got the tissues ready – it’s a real tear jerker!
What have you been up to recently?
I have been as busy as ever. Mainly I’m traveling around the country performing hair shows, and when I’m back in London I’m inventing products with the guys in the lab and looking after my clients who come to my apartment to get their hair done. I’ve been focusing some time on my charity work recently too, and been working on some exciting TV projects! Generally I’m just trying to conquer the world!
Have you ever been to a school reunion?
No, but it would be fun!
Who do you count as your true friends among your hairdressing peers?
Gary France, Errol Douglas, John Frida, Nicky Clarke, Andrew Price, there are too bloody many to mention.
What makes you laugh?
Love watching Fawlty Towers. It always has me in stitches
What is most important to you in life?
Without a doubt my family! If my family are happy then so am I!
Celebrity dinner party, which 3 guests would you invite?
Elvis, Jesus and Marilyn Monroe
What you doing for the rest of 2011?
I’ve just spent some time in South Africa as my Pink Lee Stafford haircare line has recently launched into the country – I went over for the big press launch. I’m home for a couple of weeks and then I fly to Australia. I have been really busy working on some new product developments for my haircare line in Boots so any spare time I get, which is a rare, I try and trial formulas the lab give me, get feedback from my testers, and come up with new ideas and product names. I am also busy planning my move to Ibiza for a year which is exciting!
