New talent for Colour Team

A selection of the looks created by the KH Hair Colour Team’s latest recruit!


We are delighted to introduce Asha Lahel as the newest member of the KH Hair Colour Team.

20-year-old Asha is a stylist at KH Hair St Peters in Derby. We caught up with her for a quick chat about her career so far and her aspirations for her future in hairdressing.

1: When did you join KH Hair?

In 2017.  I worked as a Saturday girl while I was still at school and then, as soon as I finished my GCSEs, I became full-time and started my apprenticeship.

 2: Why did you want to become a hairdresser?

I’ve always loved hair. I wanted to be a hairdresser when I was a little girl and I never changed my mind. I love how creative you can be with so many different things.

 3: What have been your highlights so far?

Quite a lot! But the main ones that stand out are definitely: qualifying, going to London with the Fantastic Hairdresser and Vivienne Mackinder, and taking part in the KH Hair Image of the Year competition for our salon.

 4: How does it feel to be the newest member of the KH Hair Colour Team?

Going for the Colour Team was something I always wanted to do and when I expressed an interest, the head of the Team, Jo, called me and we chatted about everything it involved. When I was invited to join the Team, I was so excited!  Unfortunately, the lockdown has put a stop to our work, but I can’t wait to get started again!

 5: What things are you missing most about the salon in the lockdown?

I am missing seeing all my clients and having a laugh with everyone, I’m also missing creating transformations for my clients.

 6: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I would love to have been travelling with work, been involved with Wella’s TrendVision competition and be running my own colour courses.

 7: What is your dream hairdressing gig?

Working on London Fashion Week and shows such as the Brit Awards. I’d also love to do photoshoots for big brands.

 8: Why do you love working at KH Hair?

Because there are so many opportunities available. You get to meet so many different people and we get constant training from some amazing brands.

Congratulations Asha.

We can’t wait to see the work you create as part of the KH Hair Colour Team.
