The Popham Oxford Team
Nikki Hutton North Parade Manager
Having been at Popham for eight years, through which she has grown into the most confident, and extraordinary young woman, Nikki has taken on becoming the general Manager of the Oxford salon, but in reality is the general manager of the company. She has taken to management with the same enthusiasm and flair she brings to hairdressing, and is a natural. As well as seeing clients, alongside her managerial role, she is the "driver " behind events, including winning the pitch as the hairdressing partner for Oxford Fashion Week 2012. She is a trained assessor and has completed a Management NVQ3. Nikki has recently become a Sassoon Educator.
Michelle Clarke, Company Training Manager
Michelle has been at Popham for nine years. A loyal, trusted and sought after colourist, she has risen through the company to become Head of the Colour department. As well as colour, her passion lies in teaching others. She has been leading training for the past four years as a qualified NVQ Assessor but having completed her Level 3 Management Diploma, she has earned her promotion to the Company Training Manager. Michelle has recently become a Sassoon Educator.
Amanda Tracey, Assistant Manager & Reception Manager
Amanda has flourished in her role as Front of House & Reception Manager in the North Parade Salon. She is popular amongst staff and clients, well -organised and runs the bookings with enthusiasm and efficiency, always welcoming clients in a professional and friendly manner. It seemed a natural progression to make Amanda Assistant Manager in North Parade and she now provides support to Nikki.
Shane Conroy - Creative Cutter & Colourist
Having trained in Ireland, Shane has settled in Oxford and has taken to the Popham ethos and way of being in the salon like a duck to water. He brings a flair to his work, a calmness and a wacky sense of humour to the salon. Shane is the regional winner of Irelands Wella Trend Vision Hairdressers Choice Award.
Charlotte Maloney, Creative Cutter & Colourist
After training with Popham we are delighted that Charlotte is now building a loyal clientele in our North Parade salon. Many will know Charlotte from her days as senior apprentice and we are now sure she will go from strength to strength in her career with Popham. Take advantage of her talent and enthusiasm and low rates while she builds on her experience.
Dasha Oleinikova, Apprentice
Apprentice Dasha from Latvia, brings such a flair and enthusiasm to her work, that we feel it will be no time at all before she qualifies. Currently working through her apprenticeship by going the extra mile, she admirably supports the teams in South and North Parade as and where she is needed.
Dean Conroy, Apprentice
When Dean joined us in December 2013 it brought the sets of siblings working for Popham to a hat trick. He has the same Irish lilt as Shane his older brother, brings enthusiasm and dedication to his apprenticeship and is doing a great job of supporting both teams.
