SAMANTHA JUPP – SENIOR STYLIST
Why did you choose to become a hairdresser?
I knew I wanted to be a hairdresser ever since a child. I would cut my dolls hair, my hair and on a few too many occasions, curtains. I gave my curtains a new style by cutting the bottoms to give them a frayed look!
How long have you been hairdressing?
Officially hairdressing 6 years but a few more with cutting friends and family’s hair.
Why have you stuck with it? What’s the best part of your job?
I will always be a hairdresser, it is part of me, seeing people happy everyday, knowing you have done that is the greatest feeling. I also love meeting new people, I believe you can learn something new from everyone.
What are you passionate about outside of hairdressing?
My passion outside of work is travelling. Even if only half an hour away, I love seeing new places and enjoying new experiences.
What’s the funniest moment you remember from your career?
The funniest moment in my career was creating hairstyles for a music video that consisted of people stuffing their faces with as many different foods as possible in slow motion, trying to do touch ups with beans and cake everywhere was definitely one of the most fun things I have ever done.
Do you have any career highlights you’d like to mention?
One of my highlights was becoming a session stylist for ‘Kevin Murphy’ – it was the first photo shoot I had ever done and I created the hair, make up and look. Working with the team was fantastic, opening up so many opportunities while enjoying every part.
What’s your favourite music at the moment?
I love any music that makes people get up and dance!
Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and what is their name?
No pets, but I would love a dog.
What the question you get asked the most?
I get asked ‘how old are you?’ all the time just because I am married.
Why did you choose Lily Jackson Hair & Makeup?

Hairdressing is a passion and we all have plenty of that here at Lily Jackson Hair & Makeup.
