Hi I’m Tim, the owner of CL2 but also a senior stylist in the salon. I served my apprenticeship in Adelaide Australia some years ago now and started in the eighties which was a revolutionary time for the industry with the advent of punk, hair extensions and of course perms!
Having been a part of all that my love of hairdressing comes from the wonderful diversity and creativity hairdressing the industry can give me both the clients and me as a stylist. Returning from Australia I worked for 2 years in Chelsea in London, and from there moved to Kent. Cranbrook is a great Town, and CL2 is a great place in which to work. Great clients, great staff and we offer a great service. Who could ask for more!
I would like to introduce myself as a new member of the amazing, welcoming, CL2 Team; such an opportunity to be a part of a professional, ever growing Company.
Hairdressing has been my passion from a young age; much to my parent's agony of having to sit and be restyled over and over again. My dog didn't escape either! As I grew up my interest did not diminish, I got more curious about the different types of hair, styles and products.
An opportunity arose whilst I was at school to be a Saturday Girl in a local Salon, which I took. An incredible experience which lead onto me starting an Apprenticeship to gain my qualifications. Being on the shop floor created an invaluable insight to what is required to be a talented hairdresser. I discovered not only did I love hairdressing but also meeting people from various walks of life.
I qualified over nine years ago, but, during this time I have gained further qualifications to enhance my knowledge of the hairdressing world. I love learning new techniques, embrace challenges and will continue to develop throughout my dream career.
I consider myself to be very enthusiastic, creative, bubbly and always ready for a challenge. My top priority is you, the Client, ensuring that you walk out of our Salon feeling extra special.
Love Naomi x x
Hello my name is Amber, I am currently the apprentice here at CL2.
My training is within the salon which is great, allowing me to pick up the skills I need from all the team members ,whose combined years of experience and knowledge teaches me a great deal.
I am a very fun, bubbly, outgong and creative person. I'm really looking forward to becoming a stylist and putting my own stamp on the hairdressing industry and letting my creativity flow. I'm enthusiastic in my learning and enjoy organising models helping my progression with training.
In my free time I like to be creative and make homemade gifts for friends and family. I have lived in Benenden most of my life. I remember sitting in my Gran's kitcken watching and helping my aunty do my family member`s hair and then I realised that hairdressing is what I wanted to do, and now that I am doing it I can honestly say that I am loving it. Meeting new people everyday with different personalitys and backgrounds. Since starting at CL2 it has boosted my confidence and helped me to develop and improve my personal skills.
As soon as you walk through the door its all about YOU and how I can make YOU feel as relaxed as possable! For most of our clients the only time you get to sit down and take some time for yourself is when you come to get your hair done, so I like to make sure your time at CL2 is the best that it can be.
Hi I’m Susie (also known as Mrs Tim!) Tim and I are married and have two great teenage children I am the phone line Receptionist at CL2 as well doing “all the other “stuff””. In my previous life, I have done Sales and Marketing, I also have a bit of a tekke background with a touch of web design & Internet Security thrown into the mix. All the behind the scenes “stuff” is my responsibility as well as making sure the salon and business run as smoothly as possible. Additionally, I do the resourcing for fresh new ideas like the disposable eco towels, as well as making sure the Quality Street and other assorted goodies never run out!
Hi I’m Sophie, the new apprentice at CL2. This is my first job starting straight from school and everyone has made me feel so welcome that I know an apprenticeship was a much better idea than going to college. I learn something new every day and by watching Tim, Naomi and now Sarah, as well as getting practical training from them. I know I will be an amazing hairdresser…watch this space! I love experimenting with different hair colour and styles on my own hair and at the moment I love my new pink flashes! I have a bright bubbly personality and the team and clients have helped me to come out of my shell and overcome my shyness. Thank you. Sophie Xx
