Meet the team

Hannah Dawson

Director/Senior stylist

Colour Expert

Whilst setting up Dawson’s I always had a clear vision in mind of how I wanted the salon to be perceived.

I always envisioned it to be light and airy with a lot of space with a very relaxed and welcoming approach almost like a home from home.

I just so happened to drive past what now is Dawson’s and instantly fell in love with the unique premises. I always knew I wanted a building that was quite structurally different to any I had seen before. With Dawson’s white metal framing it was perfect!

For days after it was all I could think about I found myself constantly daydreaming of what it could be.

My partner Jake Dawson visited the building and from there it all fell into place. We endured many sleepless nights taking huge amounts of dedication to completely renovating the inside of the building. Dawson’s was completed and we celebrated our opening on the 1st May 2019! our dream had come true.

I am so lucky to be joined by the most talented team who I’ve worked with over the years and lucky enough to now carry on doing so.

I love this industry and how each day is so different to the next constantly meeting new people and learning new things.
