Meet Our Team


best hair stylist totton - Sophie

Hello I’m Sophie and I am the owner of Elegance. I have been in the hairdressing industry all my working life, completed NVQ LEVEL 2&3 in hairdressing and have worked at Elegance now for four years. The past four years I have worked alongside another two fantastic hair stylists.

One of them being the previous owner Stacey, who has developed Elegance to what it is today. Stacey now moving on to a different aspect in life with her family, has left me the pleasure on taking over the salon and making my own go of it!

I have various plans and ideas for the salon, for things to only get better for Elegance in the future. I will be working hard behind the chair still in the salon doing what I love best by creating imaginative cuts, colours and styles by most importantly listening to my client’s opinions and ideas.

When I take on something I attend to give it my all. In my personal life I have many challenges and goals, completing a weight loss of just under 7 stone back in 2011 and now maintaining that I have a big love for fitness and a healthy lifestyle. I love running and often compete in races and triathlons on a regular basis outside of salon life. Being a determined, organised and motivated individual I am sure this will incorporate in my running of the salon.

I have always had an outgoing and creative personality. This is why hairdressing is perfect for me. Owning my own salon is simply the best thing I could of done. My friends and family our here to support me. Laura our fantastic other stylist at Elegance and most importantly my mum, Venessa who will be helping out in the salon to, we welcome you to the Elegance Experience of hairdressing.

Take Care and Love you hair Soph.


best hair stylist totton - Laura

Hello I’m Laura and I joined Elegance in 2011 after working in other salons where I always felt that I was unable to progress with my career. I was looking for somewhere to help me develop and build my knowledge and to be able gain more experience. I have now found that place here at Elegance! I am very happy to be a member of The Elegance Team and feel that my hairdressing career is now fully underway!

I have completed both  my NVQ Level 2 and NVQ Level 3 qualifications. I found the NVQ Level 3 very inspiring as you get to learn new things in great depth in addition to what you have already learnt in Level 2. This is an optional course after completing Level 2 and qualifying in hairdressing. I chose to take it as I love learning new ideas and gaining new experiences. To complete NVQ Levels 2 and 3 usually takes about 3 years so you have to be committed as this runs alongside working in the salon and all in all is a lot of hard work.

I have also attended many Matrix courses which has been brilliant as this builds my confidence as well as my knowledge. My clientele has built rapidly and I have met some lovely people who make my job even more enjoyable!
