LEAH TRAVERS-CLEAVER

Hi, my name is Leah and I’m 18 years old. I’ve been training in the industry over the past couple of years. After completing my NVQ level 2 in Media, Hair and Makeup, I wanted to strengthen my hairdressing skills, as I felt passionate about this aspect of the previous course, though I thoroughly enjoy the industry as a whole. For the past year I have been training at the Alan D London Hair Academy whilst working full time at Lavelle’s salon. I have now passed all parts of the NVQ Level 2 Diploma in hairdressing and have managed to build up my experience working on actual clients in the academy’s street level salon in the West End. At Alan D we learned new techniques, not only practical up to date hairdressing techniques, but also in consultation. This means I am able to provide the best service i can by listening to you every hair need!
I can’t wait to continue building myself as a stylist to bring a fresh new approach to the salon.

I have come so far in the last 5 years since I have been qualified and have entered many competitions. I have certificates from various academies. I am always up for a challenge and a change.
Hair ups are the thing I specialise in as I can get really involved and creative and involved in people’s special occasions.

LUKE DEMETRIOU

My name is Luke and I’m 21 years of age. I have been qualified in gent’s hairdressing for 3 years now. I’ve had wide range of training in skin fades, shaving and all the latest trends. I’ve studied 3 years doing Ladies hairdressing at college and did a 2 year apprenticeship at my parent’s Unisex salon in Islington. I also attended a 9 week Barbering and Shaving course in Covent Garden trained by Master Barbers.
I have done some competition work where I won a “Barber Battle” between 11 other barbers where we did a half hour haircut, being judged on clipper work, techniques used and finished result.

I really enjoy all of the work and the happy family style environment of Lavelle’s.

LUKE LAVELLE

My name is Luke and this is my salon. I have a great team here covering all aspects of hairdressing, from colour specialists, hair up specialists, perms
barbering, straightening, extensions, in fact everything you could want to encompass today’s male and female clientele, even an onsite beautician who does permanent and semi permanent make up, nails, manicures, pedicures and spray tanning.

Myself, I trained from the age of 16 as a barber for 2 years, then obtained an apprenticeship from a ladies salon and studied and passed my level 2 NVQ Ladies and Gent’s Hairdressing. I went on from that and obtained my NVQ Level 3 Ladies and Gents hairdressing. I have been in competitions and came 2nd in the country in the young barber section. I also have a diploma in wet shave and hot towel work.
We try our best to cater for all your needs and even do children’s/teenage pamper parties in our colour lounge where all the staff get involved.

Gent’s hair is my own passion; I love the work and the total experience and light heartedness of the young and vibrant salon which offers a good
balance that suits the young and the young at heart equally.
