About Me

Hello… I’m Candice Zen, a London-based hairstylist, haircutter and colourist. I trained in London at the prestigious Vidal Sassoon Academy in 2007, and have since trained and worked in some of London’s best salons. I did further national vocational training in barbering and men’s hairdressing in 2014. I participate in on-going colour training and use professional Wella colouring products. I also style hair for weddings and special events, and have a particular interest in vintage hairstyling.

I’m based at central London salon Hair Colour Studio near Kings Cross on Saturdays only. From Tuesday to Friday, I currently offer a mobile hairdressing service for London clients at home as well as 45 min online hair and scalp consultations for clients in the UK and worldwide.

I am also an entrepreneur and run Totem Hair, a hairdressing service for company employees Wednesday – Friday.

My interests include historical and vintage hairstyles and costume, Japanese flower arranging, travel and history. I have a good eye for proportions and colours.

Just loved doing the hair for these beautiful bridesmaids. Make-up by the talented @lissiebridalmakeup.

Thanks to Pam from @createbeautifulhair for bringing me along for this job.

Got my 2nd Astrazeneca vaccine done this aft! Grateful for all the science and scientists behind it, and the NHS of course. Looking forward to the end of restrictions.

Long hair isn't just for women - it can look great on guys as well 🙂

It has to look natural and effortless though, which means layered.

Wavy/curly hair needs taming with a mixture of leave-in conditioner and medium-strength gel applied to damp hair and left to dry naturally.

Sometimes you just gotta put some layers in long hair, otherwise it can get so flat.

This client has quite frizzy hair but drying it with a boar-bristle brush and some tension got it really smooth, showing it off for the beautiful hair that it is.

Finished with my favourite serum, @davines_uk Oi oil.

Roby opted for a post-lockdown hair makeover, and went from long to short - a very cute look on her!

Short hair can really show off a woman's features, such as pretty eyes and cheekbones.

Roby is a fantastic relationship coach, drop her a line if you need any help/advice in this area @universomiaffidoate

First shift today in north London as a @stjohn_ambulance vaccination volunteer. Was taught by a really lovely clinical pharmacist how to draw up 0.5ml Astrazenaca vaccine into a syringe, then put it into the deltoid muscle. Key is to get a good stretch on the skin, be bold and reasonably quick! Must have done about 60 vaccinations....completely knackered now.... was a really interesting and enjoyable day though.

Pls get your vaccine asap folks - protect yourselves and your families, as well as local businesses, most of which can't survive any more lockdowns.

London historian and tour guide David Charnick dropped into the salon for a post-lockdown hair makeover. Always a pleasure to chat to him!

Check out his interesting London walks - my favourite is the one on London's medieval guilds.

First ever for me - cutting hair in a client's garden!

Was a lovely day, there was good shade and a long extension lead (!) so it worked out fine.

Learning how to do a mohican in a goth club 13 years ago finally came in useful!

Cut and styling by me, colour by customer's flatmate.

Hydrangeas are beautiful in a vase.

The stones in the sand are a mixture - 3 of them found on a Welsh beach by my (now-deceased) godmother, Sharon. It's somehow nice to remember someone by inheriting their pebbles.

The others were found on the ground not far from the big standing stone circles at Avebury. Same sarsen stone as the current standing stones.

Since I've been using @davines_uk shampoo and conditioner, my hair just behaves itself better. Lots of my clients agree and love the range.

I still need to vary it though, so I do 2 days with Davines and then alternate on the third day with a regular supermarket-bought shampoo/conditioner.

The Davines shampoos and conditioners are formulated differently for different hair types and are as eco-friendly as possible. Feel free to ask me which one would suit your hair. There are also some smaller travel/trial sizes available if you want to try a couple out.

Available to buy online or from me in person 🙂
