The Team

Edward Darley

UK Colour Director

Edward joined Sassoon in 1992 and quickly completed the intense training programme to become a fully qualified Technician in the Leeds salon where Edward established a loyal clientele whilst rising through the ranks.

Edward's commitment and dedication, combined with an ambition to travel has propelled his career forward at remarkable speed. His flair for demonstrating made him a natural choice to continue his fourteen year career teaching at the Advanced Academy in London and has also seen him on show stages from Manchester to Shanghai and everywhere in between. As UK Colour Director, Edward is involved in educating and developing the next generation of Sassoon Colour Directors at the UK Salons & Academies, whilst maintaining the high Sassoon standards set by his predecessors. "What I love about Sassoon is the camaraderie of the team, and their combined understanding that it's more than just hairdressing. I'm honoured to be filling the shoes of those who have gone before me," says Edward.

With his special ability to deliver information in a down to earth way and outstanding creative talent, Edward is recognised as one of the most popular teachers at Sassoon. His role as UK Colour Director will see him further developing himself and the future colour team.
