In 2002, Thomas also qualified as a Hairdressing Tutor. Our first salon opened in Oxted in 2004 with Thomas having a very clear vision to create stunningly beautiful and wearable hair styles. The salon has gone from strength to strength, expanding in 2010, to a salon 4 times the size of the original. As a team they have gone on to represent leading cosmetic companies at the UKs leading hair shows. In 2012, 2014 & 2015, Thomas was a runner-up at the British Colour Zoom Awards and in 2013 came 6th in the National Colour Trophy. In 2015 & 2016, Thomas was a finalist for Southern Hairdresser of the Year in the BHA Hairdressing Awards. In September 2015 Thomas put together a team of young, exciting talent to assist him at LFW SS16. Due to huge success at LFW, Thomas and his team returned for LFW AW 16/17 and will also be at SS17. TH1 is moving in the right direction to become one of the UK leading hair salons.
