Daisy - Senior Stylist
“Originally from a small town in Lancashire called Barnoldswick, Daisy moved to Manchester in September 2016 to start my hairdressing career after qualifying.
I love that the hair industry it’s constantly evolving and allows room for growth. It sets new trends, the standards are high and everything is exciting, especially now. You’re seeing a lot of stylists and barbers coming together to really create some amazing work. It’s super cool.
In my spare time I love going to festivals, gigs and just going to the pub tbh.
My go to outfit would be oversized dungarees and a striped T-shirt.
Three words that’s I would use to describe me would be: Fun, Caring and probably a bit weird.
I specialise in all things bleach and creative colour.
Star Sign: Aquarius, ofc.”
Chris Kolwitz - Senior Stylist
"Chris, what a babe! At Rcnq we like him not only for his warm nature and amazing hairdressing skillz, but also because he brings an international touch with his soft Australian accent and european blood...! After have been living and working in London for a bit over 2 years, Chris decided to spice life up a bit in June '16 and moved to Manchester. Now Chris just wants to explore his new home city, maybe get a pet blue tongue lizard and drive around in a nice car or motorbike. After asking Chris a load of questions I've found out that his favourite colour is electric blue, his fav food is "asian cuisine" and that he really likes to party in Berlin with a neat vodka. Being from one of the hottest countries in the world he's also a huge fan of the beach, sun and water sports. About his job he says he "loves the transformation" and the relationship you build up with your clients. He also loves a good blonde ashy toner! With 12 years of experience, Chris will be your guy if you feel like a fun transformation, a lovely chat or some vodka! 💗"
