Mayor of Greenwich supports local enterprise, cuts ribbon at Hair by Natasha Walker. Hair by Natasha Walker officially opened by Mayor of Greenwich at its 1st Year Anniversary party on 1st March 2012.
Hair by Natasha Walker started off as the brainchild of a young entrepreneur, Natasha Walker,who overcame a challenging background to realise her dream of creating a top to toe salon bringing her special brand of style and catwalk daring to her home borough.
One year later, the business is going from strength to strength and received accolades from the Mayor of the new Royal Borough of Greenwich Jim Gillman at a ribbon cutting ceremony last week. Mayor Gillman spoke of his pride at witnessing first hand the success of young entrepreneurs in his borough.
“I had a dream to create a complete head to toe service to encapsulate the whole person,” says the stylish, sophisticated, yet down to earth Natasha, fresh from her own catwalk successes at London Fashion Week in 2010. Cutty Sharp offers Facials, Massage, Waxing, Manicures, Pedicures and Cutting and Colouring techniques for Afro & European hair types as well as Brazilian blow-dry and Shellac Nails.
”I want to give every woman the opportunity to shine by using the skills I’ve learned in the fashion business to enhance her natural assets. Combining stylish hairdressing with equally strong Beauty Therapists, we have gained a fantastic audience here as part of the new Royal Borough of Greenwich" continues Natasha.
