Pip’s done his hairdressing time. 12 years in the fast lane and trend forecasting capital that is Londonwhere he did his training from the age of 18.
“I'm now using that elite quality of colour and cut I learnt with Daniel (Daniel Hersheson, Conduit Street) to create easy to wear every day styles and colours… but without the London price tag.”
Pip’s clients in London read like a who’s who, Lily Cole, Max Beasley, Amanda Lamb, Shakin' Stevens and Chesney Hawkes (the best!), with past Hersheson salon clients including various Storm Models, Kylie, Natalie Imbruglia, Hugh Grant, Elle McPherson, Alexa Chung and Emma Bunton.
He’s assisted on magazine photo shoots including Mario Testino, “A real privilage” he confides.
As part of the Daniel Hersheson salon he’s worked backstage at London, Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks assisting with the creation of catwalk hairstyles for luminaries Alexander McQueen, Prada, Marc Jacobs and Maxmara.
He even got flown out to the Tokyo World Cup to be part of the stylist team to the WAG's, but that’s all you get out of him on that subject.
Pip went on to run “Alwyn’s” in Grantham for 5 years, whilst planning his ideal salon in his home city Lincoln. Combining some of the best London training with a more mature and unpretentious approach from running ‘Alwyns', Pip embarked on a search for a premises to match his ethos for the Pip Littlewood salon.
Pip Littlewood opened on Steep Hill in Lincoln in June 2014. A relaxing open space with mixed textures of wood and high ceilings to let in lots of calm and natural light. Combined with a private courtyard a stone’s throw away from Castle Square and The Bailgate, the salon has fast become an established Lincoln hair salon with a unique boutique experience.
