A little about me.......

my new hair charity cut and style wigs for medical hair losslittle princess trust charity providing wigs for suffering hair loss alopecia or cancer

I support the Little Princess Trust, a charity who  provide real hair wigs, free of charge, to children across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment.  I am also a trained stylist for the My New Hair campaign, who provide public advice and support a national network of independent salons and professionals who offer a wig styling service for people suffering from cancer and medical hair loss.



I began my career at 16 and set up a mobile hairdressing service in Leeds with the help of The Princes Youth Business Trust when I was 20.

Considering a career change in my early 30's, I studied for a degree in Business Studies at the University of Leeds but realised 3 years into the course that hair was what I loved doing. I completed the degree, and with a refreshed focus on hairdressing, used the knowledge to set up Mango Hair Design.

In 2010, I joined the team at Intuitions Ltd, Harrogate's premier training college for Hair and Beauty Qualifications, as an Educator and Assessor teaching Level 1, 2 and 3 NVQ Hairdressing and I went back to University myself to gain the teaching qualification Post Graduate Certificate in Education at the University of Huddersfield.

I have now left Intuitions as I want to concentrate on my new venture, working in the hair studio salon in my  log cabin. 

I am available for private tutoring for NVQ students and for individuals requiring refreshing their skills in hair up, wedding, colouring and cutting. Training is tailored to suit individual needs. Call now to enquire 07957 216017.

I am a Wella certified Master Colourist and a certified hair extensionist since 2002. Wedding hair is one of my favourite jobs and, following refreshing my skills initially learnt during my apprenticeship, I have  offered  a wedding day service for the past 15 years.

I am the Regional Representative for the Freelance Hairdressers Association which not only does it give me professional credibility but also I have a network of other freelancers all over the country.

I have long hair; I was bored with it but didn't want it shorter - just given a bit of tlc... I have to say that she really did give some TLC... we talked about the hair and what my needs were (as well as wants!) and she did what was really necessary - she was really very insightful about what was really necessary to do. I left feeling really great and I got some very lovely compliments (which also made me feel great!). Thank you, Julie! I loved the log cabin interior - it felt really special. I am definitely going back for more and would definitely recommend her!
Mango Hair Design is a fabulous, personal, welcoming place. Julie from Mango is by far the best hairdresser I've ever had. She's so good, my friends and family now go to Julie for their hair dressing requirements. She's a wonderful, warm person and her knowledge of cutting, colour, extensions and styling is immense. I whole-heartedly would recommend Mango Hair Design to anyone looking to find an exceptional hairdresser.
Can't recommend Mango enough this was my first visit and will definitely not be my last. Julie took time to listen to what style I wanted and the result was perfect EXACTLY the look I was going for. The salon was spotless and Julie is a lovely lady who really seems to care that her clients leave happy, which I most certainly did.
Couldn't recommend Julie more! She is so passionate in what she does and gives 100% every time, she listens to what you want!! I'm constantly changing my colour and Julie is always up for the challenge bringing plenty of ideas with new colour ranges and achieves exactly what I want every time. Booked in for my hair extensions next month and I couldn't be more excited, I know it will look incredible!
Thank you Julie for fitting my mum and myself in. You have the cabin looking fantastic. So thankful for doing our hair perfect how we wanted it. It was our first time using Julie. We were welcomed. So polite and made us feel at home. We will be using Julie again. Recommended to all.
Thank you so much for coming to do my hair today, I love my hair feels so much better � such a lovely lady and did a fabulous job. I look forward to my next appointment Sara McDonald
Loved getting my hair done by Julie. Such a friendly woman and always happy with the outcome. Definitely worth every penny��  Jessica Kellet
Hi Julie. Thankyou for doing my hair today - perfect as always - take care X.
Sarah Thirtle, Leeds
Thank you so much, julie is lovely, made me feel very welcome and comfortable, hair is amazing! Very happy!    Jo Baker
Julie is so knowledgable and gives such good advice! My hair looks and feels great! Thank you so much
 I can not stress how talented Julie is! I'm so in love with how she's cut and coloured my hair today. Which I'd completely left in her hands, if given a brief idea of what I wanted and Julie knew exactly what would suit me and didn't need any sort of inspiration! I shall 100% be booking in with her again and again and again!! Did I also mention how reasonable her prices are?? AMAZING!!  Bethany Falshaw Leeds

 Hi Julie, just to say great cut, loving it. Thanks heaps and see you soon

 Hi Julie a quick note to say thank you so much for doing my hair and my sisters hair for my wedding last weekend. I feel very lucky to have had you to do it. Everyone was amazed at how lovely my hair was, and it lasted all day


Julie is so lovely...She's made me feel human again as I can't wash or style my own hair following shoulder surgery. She's a brilliant stylist and very cheerful and helpful, taking great care to make sure I was comfortable. I'm very pleased with the service, delighted with my hair and recommend her very highly

Hi Julie. I just wanted to let you know that I've had so many comments about my hair. I really like it too. Take care. Hazel Soloman Leeds
Thanks for my gorgeous hair Julie. xx Amy Thirtle Leeds
Julie did mine and my bridesmaid's hair for my wedding in August 2011. However - she was coming to my house for about 6 months prior to that as we changed our minds several times !! Nothing was too much trouble for Julie - she was punctual, professional and knowledgeable. We had lots of practises and on the day both of our hair was fabulous. She advised us on style, colour and timings. My stepdaughter had her hair coloured and I had extensions which were superb. I can't recommend Julie enough stepdaughter had her hair coloured and I had extensions which were superb. I can't recommend Julie enough Sue Cameron Leeds
Having a 10 month old baby makes it hard for me to get to a salon these days, I was nervous about booking someone I didn't know to come and cut and style my hair at home but I have to say that I was so impressed. Julie was so lovely and friendly and she made my awful unkempt hair look fabulous. I will now be a regular client, I have have already booked her to do my hair for my sons Christening Jane McColl Morley
