Tuesday, 15 September 2020 14:54

Lorraine Dublin is an award-winning, internationally acclaimed hairstylist, with 20 years’ experience creating innovative and dynamic hairstyles for celebrities, high-fashion photoshoots and a loyal - and ever increasing - legion of clients.

From a young age, Lorraine Dublin had a natural talent for hair. She honed her skills on the playground and at home by experimenting with different plaiting techniques and hair extensions to create styles for her friends and family.  She didn't realise she could turn her passion for hair into a career until a friend's mother advised that her future lay in hairdressing.  

After successfully completing hairdressing training at the London College of Fashion, Lorraine went on to work as a junior hairstylist at Zig-Zag hair salon, before working her way up through the ranks as a stylist in a number of Afro and European hair salons across London, with critically acclaimed celebrity hairdressers  such as Adee Phelan and Desmond Murray. 

Lorraine's reputation as an outstanding hairstylist, has led her to work with a series of well-known celebrities, including Wimbledon Champions Venus and Serena Williams, former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion Lennox Lewis, award-winning international music artists Erykah Badu, Kelly Rowland and Sean Paul, noted actresses Gabrielle Union and Thandie Newton, American television personality and author La La Anthony, and British television and radio presenter Sarah Jane Crawford. 

She has also worked on a series of media projects ranging from the X-Factor to the BBC's Material Girl and adverts for brands such as Adidas to catwalk shows during London Fashion Week. Her work can also be viewed in glossy magazine publications such as Maxim, Fabulous, FHM, Essence, Pride and Black Beauty & Hair.  

Lorraine is the former recipient of the Southern Stylist of the Year, Black Beauty/ Wahl Hair Awards. She was also part of the winning team that took home the prize for the best Styling Team in the same awards programme. In addition, she was a finalist at the L'Oréal Colour Trophy hairdressing competition. 

In 2015, Lorraine decided to add hair salon owner to her bow of achievements, as she opened My Hair Bar - a chic, hair boutique specialising in Afro, European and Mixed hair in central London with three former colleagues. At the helm of her own space, Lorraine enjoys the diversity that owning a salon brings. Not only can she continue to explore opportunities as a session stylist but also share her knowledge through training and education as well as remain grounded and humble working with her salon clients. 

Though her skills span all hair types, Lorraine is particularly passionate about styling natural textured hair and has ambitions to establish her own training school, launch her own product line and open more salons.
