Our expert stylists and colourists are artists and renegades, but not at the expense of your hair's health. We do our best work when our clients sit down, relax and trust us.
Tracy is the creative genius behind Common Thread, setting it up at the fresh age of 26, having previously worked for Stephen Marr for more than a decade (yep, she started young!). She has two loves in her job - educating staff and clients; and influencing her clients' confidence through the power of hair artistry.
She loves clients with super straight hair who want a very precise shape. "I get lost in the challenge to perfect any imperfections, so that when it moves in any direction it's flawless." She's also at her best when achieving the 'unachievable' for clients who've been lead to believe their hair 'can't' do something. "I don't do CAN'T, ask my team - that word isn't welcome at Common Thread."
She's all about honesty and trust with her clients, but then that is the Common Thread mantra. She loves trying new things and has been testing freehand cutting (where the hair is cut dry, using just scissors and your hands to feel the shape). It allows the hair to fall naturally, creating a more organic form and making it super easy to wear. She also loves a classic, sharp French bob - "so sleek and oozes that don't f*ck with me charm".
SarahARTISTIC DIRECTOR, STYLIST & MAKEUP ARTIST
Sarah knew from a young age, whatever she was going to do would need to be artistic and driven by passion. And fulfil her dreams, has she ever. Having worked for Servilles for several years where she was a finalist in the prestigious Loreal Colour Trophy, and turning her hand to make up.
Sarah joined the M.A.C team and has worked on numerous shows with designers such as Zambesi, Juliet Hogan, Twenty Seven Names, Nicole Miller and Trelise Cooper. As well as freelancing at the Vodafone Music Awards and the Style Pacifica Awards. She adores a gorgeous head of curly hair, enjoys playing with texture and freeing up long drab locks.
She's not one to pass up the opportunity to execute a good old bob too. Sarah is Common Thread's 'special occasion' specialist and loves combining her hair and makeup skills for events. Communication and trust are what Sarah values most and loves working together with clients who're open to input and can have a good laugh. Oh, and bonus points if you love to travel - expect endless adventure conversation to flow!
Sam is at her best when change is in the air - she gets super-excited about a transformation, whether it’s only a hint or really drastic. She specialises in clean, bold cuts and colours and loves creating styles that can be worn structured or messy/textured. She calls them split personality cuts and she’s damn good at them. So if you’re willing to trust the process and have fun with your hair, you’ll always leave feeling incredible.
KirstySTYLIST - currently on maternity leave
When Kirsty was five she really wanted a bob, but her mum wouldn't let her get one. So Kirsty took matters into her own hands - lopping off one long pigtail with giant shears. Fast forward 23 years and her passion for style-defining hair hasn't changed, though thankfully the shears have been replaced with proper tools!
Kirsty is a great all-rounder, skilfully turning her hand to everything from technically-challenging short cuts to curls or classic longer styles. She loves variety in her day and is a real foodie, so come armed with your best recipes.
