Vanessa Elliott – The Owner/Founder

From a very early age I have always been a creative person with a passion for art. I’ve always grown up around celebrity magazines and gorgeous, glamorous women and loved the ever-changing images of fashion and style throughout the years.

Following my passion, I decided to travel to London in January 2009 for training. I was determined to fulfil my dreams of becoming a hair extension specialist so I could provide the North of England with flawless hair extension work.

I spent two years building my clientele, which was a huge success. It rapidly grew, with clients travelling from all over the UK through word of mouth and recommendations. I no longer had any space for new clients and in August 2011 I took the plunge and opened my very first hair extension salon. I then went on to employ other staff to help with the workload, and since have been branded the No.1 hair extension salon in the North.

Within three years, we completely outgrew the salon and in August 2015 opened a much larger and luxurious high-end salon which I couldn’t be more proud of. The salon is everything I could have dreamed of, my business is my everything and without my amazing clients spreading the word I wouldn’t be where I am today.

About me

  • I am bubbly, outgoing and very hardworking. If I want something in life I go out and get it. I am fiery and very passionate – hard on the outside but soft on the inside.
  • I used to be a dancer for 15 years i started when i was only 3 years old.
  • I have a lovely seven-year-old boy called Mckenzie.
  • I have two French Bulldogs called Prince and Matilda, and I also have a micro pig called Herbie, AKA Mr Herbs – they are all adorable!
  • I am addicted to tattoos and don’t even know how many I have.
  • I always lose my shoes when I go out. I would wear slippers if I could!
  • My favourite film is Pretty Woman.
  • I am always on some sort of diet yet never lose any weight.
  • I hate semolina and kidney.
  • I have a fear of heights but would love to do a skydive and overcome my fears.

Laura Jobes – The Hair Extensionist

Having stalked the Dreamgirlz page for over three years whilst I completed my hairdressing training, I have always been inspired by their amazing transformations. I always knew it was what I wanted to do with my skills, so I went for and interview and I was overwhelmed when I got the job. Since then I have gone from strength to strength, training in three different methods (Hollywood weave, pre-bonded and Mini Locks) and built up a large clientele list since I started working here two years ago.

I never shut up. I am always talking – I could literally talk to the wall and expect it to talk back! I am a very energetic and hungry person. If I don’t get fed when I’m hungry, I start to get very hangry (angry because I’m hungry).

About me

  • I’m very random.
  • I am very passionate about my job.
  • My nickname is Jeff and I don’t know why.
  • I am the Hollywood weave queen.
  • I’m a loud, outgoing person.
  • I love a good party (as does every other 21-year-old)!
  • My party trick is to lick my elbow.
  • My love for Domino’s, crisps and McDonald’s is uncontrollable.
  • I also like feet.

Kayleigh March – The Hair Extensionist

From being a little girl, I’ve always had a passion for hair. I knew from a very young age that I would take up a career within the industry. I took my first step into hairdressing whilst in secondary school doing an entry level course which helped me get accepted into college ready to start my NVQ. I spent three years training with BL Hairdressing as an apprentice working in salon and gained my NVQ Level 2 and 3.

Having worked in the industry for over seven years, I felt like I wanted to broaden my skills and become a full time extensionist at Dreamgirlz. This was one of the best decisions made I have been working as part of the dreamgirlz team for nearly 3 years now and truly love everything about the job. Can honestly say I have a passion for  everything to do with my work, perfection is the key.

About me

  • I am adventurous, bubbly and ambitious.
  • I am one of three children, I have two sisters who I adore.
  • I have a very random weekend job – I am a Dinky Doughnut lady at the Motocross meetings all over the UK.
  • I have two beautiful nieces who are my world.
  • My favourite film is Pearl Harbour.
  • I love my job.
  • My favourite foods are Japanese and Thai.
  • My biggest fear is spiders.
  • I dislike bad-mannered people – please and thank you costs nothing!

Liam Morley– The Colour Specialist

Rhian Brown - The Hair Extensionist

Beauty has always been a big part of me from a very young age. My poor little brother would constantly have pink fingers and toe nails after I had pinned him down to paint them! I couldn’t wait for the last day of school to go straight to college and complete my beauty course. I studied at Newcastle College and completed my BTEC National Diploma in Beauty Therapy Sciences Level 3 and loved every minute of it!

Working within the beauty industry for six years, I realised I wanted to specialise in nails. I love creating unique designs that have the wow factor. Joining the Dreamgirlz team was the best decision I have ever made – I absolutely love my job and look forward to coming in every single day!

About me

  • I am a kind-hearted, bubbly girl with a heart of gold.
  • I have a Boxer dog called Rosco who I love.
  • I don’t know my left and right.
  • I am a horrendous drunk but love a good laugh.
  • I am a little giggler, always finding things hilarious.
  • I love my job very much and I’m always looking for the latest nail crazes.
  • My favourite film is Elf as I love Xmas.
