Declan began his journey in Glasgow, Scotland training for the highly-acclaimed Scottish brand Rainbow Room, before spending two years at the city’s Sassoon Salon, where he won the prestigious Sassoon Colourist of the Year award. After winning, Declan then focused his energy into training and became an assessor for the salon, as well as teaching advanced colour classes in London’s Sassoon Salon.
With a professional degree in colour from Schwarzkopf and intensive colour training with Sassoon, he is a bona fide colour master. Highly creative, Declan was an in-demand stylist at photoshoots and fashion shows before he relocated to Dubai in September. His main passions in the salon are creating beautiful colours and precision cuts taking into account face shape, skin tone and eye colour and he is looking forward to introducing the Pastels’ clientele to his strong belief in purity, shape and balance.
