Silk Trends was founded in 2007 by Ingrid Farrell and her daugther Dionne. It was a dream come true for Mother and Daughter team originally from Manchester, whose initial idea of opening the hairdressers in Chingford came from realising there were no professional quality hairdressing services in the area for the local community.

Having lived in Chingford for four years previously to opening the hairdressing salon, Ingrid knew all too well the problems of finding a reputable hairdresser in the area, and many times had to travel far afield to seek the professional hair services she required.

“We wanted to bring a well needed professional service to the area that was lacking for local people of different cultures, and cater for all hair types”, says Ingrid.

Silk Trends not only provides expert hairdressing services in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere; We use high quality professional styling products, provide detailed home care advice, and make sure you have the knowledge to maintain your new hair style between salon visits. We also provide training opportunities for budding stylists and clients. All our stylist are fully qualified to at least NVQ Level 2 Hairdressing standards and receive continous training and development to ensure our standards stay high. Ingrid is also a qualified Hairdressing Lecturer and NVQ Assessor therefore continous learning is always encouraged and supported.

Silk Trends Academy offers a variety of courses that are especially targeted to new and talented hair stylists wanting to enhance their current skill set. We also offer a variety of workshops for clients who want to learn how to maintain their hair between salon visits. Our courses are designed to encourage creative learning and practical skills that can be put into practise immediately.”
