Lee Stafford:
Unknown
Meet world famous hairdresser and hairstylist Lee Stafford! Joining the Style Council for the second month in a row, we just can’t get enough of his unique hair creations and cheeky grin! Let’s find out more about him below..

In his own words, Lee’s career began by “Cutting friends’ and family’s hair in my mum’s living room! This is where I realised my passion for cutting hair by changing the way people looked and finding the best styles for their features and personality”.

So after a brief spell at the Kings Road, Chelsea and some time in the US, he returned home and started developing and honing his skills, building his reputation as Lee Stafford the hairdresser.

In 1998 he won the award for Men’s British Hairdresser of the Year and in 2000 he opened his second salon in Soho. Since then, his career has gone from strength to strength, most recently winning the 2014 Hair Magazine Award for his Breaking Hair leave-in treatment!

In 2002 he won his “ultimate accolade”, being named the ‘Most Influential Hairdresser of the Year’ which was incredible because it was voted by other professionals in the industry – the people who continue to inspire his work and push him into new directions.

Find him on Twitter and Facebook, or of course on LeeStafford.com and check out his interview during the April #StyleBattle winner’s photoshoot and see what inspired his look for the winners.
