Adam Walmsley

Adam has been cutting men’s hair for over 25 years in Australia and London. He and his wife Nat own the salon Friends & Family in Chippendale, a small inner-city suburb of Sydney. Over his career, Adam as worked with some of the world’s best salons and stylists over the years and is DMARGE resident expert when it comes to men’s haircuts.

Education has been the backbone of Adam’s career. Having started with an apprenticeship in his English hometown of Preston, he later moved to TONI&GUY in Manchester where he fell in love with the technical approach to cutting hair.

This led him into teaching and not long after he took charge of TONI&GUY’s training for the north of England. London soon beckoned, and there, surrounded by international hairdressers of great talent and renown, he pushed himself to expand his own abilities and creative horizons.

After several years of travelling the world teaching creative cutting techniques and working at fashion weeks throughout Europe, he returned to working behind the chair and established a destination salon in London’s east end.
